    happy about the higher details in places compared to let's-go, i expected less work.
    the starters look dreadful, they are all made of the same 3 flat shapes, it feels like a running joke now. Their species inspiration also falls flat, it's the most overused creatures when there are still a ton that have never been touched, hopefully other entries fill those holes.
    the map visually looks more onrails than any other illustration of a world map in the franchise, which leads me to believe they are doubling down on the gen 6-7 gameplay downgrades with a heavy stripping down philosophy.

    Graphical improvements make me happy, and the gyms look great too. Not too keen on the starters but the fire bunny's got my eye for now.

    They did say there was another Pokemon announcement. Do you think they already started on the next Let's Go game?

    WTF? This is just pokemon lets go and the graphics are awful! You can see weird outlines etc. plus i seriously thought that we would get a real open-world with a bit more realistic graphics :/

    Honestly found those fakemon better designed than the 8th gen starters.

    The rabbit one was quite predictable considering that fire starters always follow the chinese zodiac.

    Look decent for me, I mean cartoonish graphic for pokemon fit perfectly, wild battle and trainers that cool.
    Just it is me or all city and map s in general looked so empty ? I mean no npc ?
    Else I like these new name, Shield and Sword, Pokemon SS.
    I lost a bet but still decent name :)
    Water starter for me, as always since pokemon red :P

    It really saddens me that Nintendo claim they won't revisit the F-Zero franchise because there's nothing new they can do with it (their claim, not mine), yet they're more than happy to scrape the barrel with the Pokémon franchise just because they can slap that brand on anything and know it will print money for them.

    It looks like every other mainline Pokemon game, which is basically what I expected. I'll probably play it but eh. Wish they would have kept the encounters being visible on the overworld from Let's Go at least.

    Probably going to have new forms. Sword (offensive form) and shield (defensive form). Plus evolutions based on which stat is higher. 3rd evolution for a tied/even stats. Just like the hitmo, Pokémon. I would like to see starters for once with this. 3 different Evolutionary paths for each. They could do it for all the new ones except the legendary/mystic Pokémon. Give them different and multiple mega forms instead.

    It isn't necessarily the year we're in.
    We already had a pig fire starter:

    Some fakemons are way better designed and I gotta feeling that the games are going to be simplified after all what happend in recent time (GO mobile, Pokemon Quest, Lets GO).... now they talk about newcomers and all that crap, about how the game would be for everyone etc. :unsure:

    BTW anyway how do we gonna call them this time around, Pokemon SW/SH or SRD/SLD or what (problem: first letter S and last letter D for both games..... just great).
