    About freaking time they release a Pokemon game for the Switch that actually has random encounters. I avoided Let's Go for that very reason.

    Um, you can clearly see it in the video that there are random encounters.

    You mean like Charizard is just char and lizard? Or Volt orb? Or Bulb saur? HOPpip? Luna+ala? Do you expect them to change how they name 'mons and have Johny, James, Robert and such instead?

    I will wait until we see more of it, because you can't really judge based on a trailer, but what I didn't like so far:
    -seemingly we still have a fixed camera
    -graphics still look too cartoony for my tastes (except the water)
    -names are a bit awkward
    -starters' eyes make them look like plushes

    Looks like its using the Gen 7 engine, like Let's Go using Gen 6 engine. Looks beautiful. The color pallete is much more easy on the eyes than the over saturated color used in PLG. Now, sigh... i knew i should've been saving money months ago. Its gonna take a while for to get a Switch.

    Time to set wild expectations to the games and be disappointed afterward.

    Or just wish for more post game other than Battle Tower and still end up being disappointed.

    Honestly I found the trailer really lackluster.
    Actually, it gave me the feeling they were hiding pretty much everything they could.
    The only new mon's we've seen were the starters, usually we see at least the legendaries as well.
    They barely shown the battles or random encounters, it just felt like a rushed trailer.
    For a 7 minutes direct it sure felt disappointing.

    Just hope the story is good - could make or break a Pokemon game for me. Also post game stuff to do; hope it will be on point to that regard.

    My thoughts when I saw the countryside setting: Is this supposed to be Britain?
    My thoughts when I saw the old town setting: Pretty sure this is Britain...
    My thoughts when I saw the map of the region: Yeah that's Britain alright.

    Knowing my luck today, it's likely based on a completely different country and I'm just seeing things...

    There are gyms and wild battles. They mentioned about becoming champion so yea and they displayed 2 pokemon battling with 1 pokemon using an attack on i think a pikachu. So yea its the classic pokemon experience we all love. Lets go was just aimed at casual viewers to showcase the switch and try something you so we all can go play in kanto all over again. But now a the real deal is here. Lets go was reeased as Gamefreak needed more time for development to make a huge ass pokemon game for the main series switch entry. Then according the the formula of gamefreak in 2020 we get remakes. (Have yet to see sinnoh region).

    Wow that was way more information than I would have expected. But the map looks very straight. You start at the bottom and finish at the top
