If i'm going to be completely honest, other than pokemon walking with you I really don't like these (especially with the graphics and all of the gimmicks). I doubt i'm buying these, but I guess it's targeted towards a younger audience than usual. At least we have 2019 to look forward to.

Competitive will suffer as a result of this, with players only being allowed to use the original 151.

I won't lie, I did tear up a little at how nice the games look from a graphic stand point. I think I might pass on it tho. The Go mechanics and the (probably) only 151 Pokemon is a huge 'no thanks' from me. I do hope that next year's Gen 8 game takes some stuff from it though. Like the polished graphics and the following/rideable Pokemon.

They’re practically using the ‘core RPG’ label just officially, it seems, it’s practically a spinoff. Which likely mean wild battles really aren’t happening.

The part about the 2019 games being modem in tune with the past is a bit reassuring.

Hold up! Before we say that battling wild Pokemon is out, let's calm down, and think: In the footage, we only saw the catching part. not battling. It may still be there. The trailer seems like it's more about connectivity to Pokemon Go anyway.

What we know about the games is what we saw:

Catching Pokemon is akin to Pokemon go. That does not mean that we no longer battle Pokemon. Again, the trailer is all we have right now.
Pokemon following you. That's cool.
Trainer battles are still here, which means that wild Pokemon battles are done in the same way.
We don't know much else about the

Well... If I owned a switch, I might buy this, but I'm not going to buy a switch to own this. Even if it's a new story (big if), I just don't know if I can do original 151 only. I thought the rest would be a least in post game....See you guys in about 10 months when we get the titles of the 2019 games. Geez, I was hoping they'd at least give us the titles.

If what they’re stating is true, I think this might be the best overall solution (although I’d have preferred to have Gen 8 before LGPE). It allows GF to please different people without mixing up the two products, with the core, traditional games still
present.

Don’t care about the wild battles since I just kept spamming ultra balls anyway, never did battle much.

It's a spinoff. Generation VIII won't be until next year.

So only 151, then. Okay. I'm disappointed beyond belief.
So am I, but I can't help but wonder whether Gen II Pokémon and so on will be added later. Maybe as free DLC.

I actually got excited at the news of new Pokemon
But... what did they do? This is more of a side game than actual Pokemon

Well i think i will play this let‘s go game with my sister and just enjoy them together and the games next year will be traditional single player experience as i love them for last 20 years. Oh and if anyone is concerned with the term in style of X/Y Sun/Moon for 2019 games, they probably aren‘t referring to graphics but more so about the gameplay. I think the graphics will be a huge update to Sun/Moon, as 2019 games are probably longer in developement.

That was an amazing trailer. I'll gladly take this knowing that gen 8 proper is next year.

So this is still technically a main series game, just an experimental one. I like
Yeah, since we know for certain that Gen 8 is due for next year, I don’t mind indulging these. They look like a fun, self-contained thing that my partner and I could really get into thanks to that *starts salivating* delicious co-op feature.

The graphics are actually better than I expected, although it should be noted that I maintained a low bar.
