HMs were a nightmare and I'm glad that there were removed from the newer games. You shouldn't need special moves just to traverse the landscape.
Forgive the double post, but something else came to mind that I'm glad is gone. No more switch training, halved EXP gains, and the EXP Share as a held item.
In my case, it makes soloing the game impossible, which is problematic considering I'm planning to do that with every single evolution line.Amen. Granted, the "modern" exp. share makes the games easier, but Pokemon hasn't been really that hard to begin with. My only complaint with Sword/ Shield about this is that they no longer make exp. share optional. They should, in case someone wants to do it the old-fashioned way, or just to avoid over-training your Pokemon so much so that the main battles become laughably easy.
Because personally it does nothing for me. Besides, it being the first Pokemon in your party kind of ruined the novelty for me, too. There are cute Pokemon that I'd love to have out hanging out with me, but they're never the ones that are first in my party because they aren't the best fighters. Like in HG, it was always Feraligatr following me which wouldn't be my choice to say the least.Why? That was nice.
It's completely optional, save for Pikachu and Eevee always being on your shoulder/head, but that's more a conceit of those specific games since they're remakes of Yellow and as such the Starters never evolve.I heard that in Lets Go it's actually completely optional? If that's the case, that's the direction they need to take in the series going forward. I always hated how it was forced on me in HG/SS.
