    To say that the Pokémon 'Let's Go' games are catering to the casual audience more than the core audience would be understating the matter. The game has only the original 151 Pokémon, removes wild battles, and now Serebii has determined yet another change in the formula for Let's Go.

    After playing the game earlier today, Serebii has determined that both abilities and held items are absent. This is yet another change that may upset the more dedicated fans. Interestingly, Serebii has confirmed that IVs and EVs are still present in some form, despite being a far more complicated mechanic.

    Well, I guess we'll see how their new mainline entry is treated.

    Good lord, I really don’t know what they will be doing for the real game on switch. This doesn’t look promising.

    Guys.. it sounds really great !
    You know why? I think that Nintendo will go in 2 directions. Since the fans where bashing SM and USUM for their easy level and casual gameplay.

    So my guess is that from now. Nintendo will release two Major Pokémon Games.
    One being super ultra easy (Pokémon Let’s Go) for kids etc...
    And One following the old formula with adding new mechanics and increase greatly the difficulty and complex and great story. For long time fans.

    This is how I’m seeing it.

    Remember, everyone: difficult/easy and fun/boring are concepts with very little to do with each other.

    Remember also that the degree to which the game sticks to the formula created by the predecessors has nothing to do with its quality.

    It's a very different game than previous Pokémon games. So what? Doesn't mean it's gonna suck, doesn't mean it's gonna be great. It's a video game - you're either having fun playing or not and that's all that determines its worth. Of course overly negative or overly positive expectations can weight the score, but let's try to be neither blind haters nor franchise sheep. I'm gonna turn it on and let it carry me on an adventure, whatever kind of adventure it'll turn out to be.

    I have to say I'm not a fan of B/W/B2/W2, but yeah, I feel like the series peaked at Sinnoh. I didn't mind X/Y and I liked OR/AS but Sun and Moon destroyed my hopes and dreams tbh.
