Features from Let's Go you'd like to see return in Gen 8?

    Hi guys I though I'd discuss a topic on what features you like from Pokémon Let's go and would enjoy seeing incorporated into the upcoming Gen 8 Title.

    In no specific order.

    1. IV Judge - Being able to check Iv's straight from the dex is a great addition.

    2. Pokemon following and Riding - Self explanitory. Why wouldn't you want this amazing feature.

    3. Pokemon appearing in the overworld - Another great feature that makes the game more immerisve and reduced rng.

    4. Trainer customisation - Again self explanitory. More options would be nice though like say unlockable costumes of notable characters like Red, Lance, Gym Leaders etc.

    5. Nature control for wild pokemon - Love this change. Especially useful for competitive battling. Basically 100% nature synchronise.

    6. IV catch and shiny chaining - Great feature that helps motive you to actually catch pokemon over simply breeding them.

    7. No HM's - Self explanitory

    8. Pokemon box attached to you at all times - Being able to switch pokemon at will is very handy.

    What about you?

    I have a question about 8 for you people who played Let's Go. Is the feature disabled during certain points of the game, like the Pokémon League challenge? Otherwise I think it'd make the challenge too easy.

    I particularly like the IV judge method, the Pokémon following, the rideable Pokémon, the Trainer customisation and the HM-like techniques.

    The ability to influence the natures of wild Pokémon, no more worries when shiny hunting Legendaries of your Synchronisers potentially failing on you.

    Most of those aren't even from Let's Go... Alola games also had IV Judge on the PC. Alola games had much better trainer customisation than Let's Go, Alola games already had chaining for IVs and shiny in the form of SOS (only it doesn't cost you loads of poké balls), Alola games already removed HMs.

    As for things introduced in Let's Go specifically? I guess separate volume controls. And IV checking on trades. Skippable cutscenes maybe if it also works on egg hatching. And, that's about it really. Don't want anything else from that tutorial game to go to the traditional series. Removal of wild battles? No thanks. Stupid gym requirements? No thanks.

    Everything favorable to me in Let’s Go was in SM so nothing really. Maybe the additional focus on your starter

    Don't forget AVs

    AVs break the game balance for lower levelled play, like level 50s, because they don't scale with level. Keep that far away please.

    No HMS, Pokemon following you around.

    Most of these things didn't even debut with Let's Go. The IV Judge was accessible from the Box in SM, Pokemon following was in HGSS, riding was in XY, customization has been a thing since XY, and IV/shiny chaining was in DPPt, ORAS, and SM. The only things LG brought to the table were Pokemon in the overworld, the box being accessible from anywhere, Madame Celadon, and co-op.

    Out of the new features, I'd like to see overworld Pokemon, Madame Celadon (or some similar feature), and co-op. I'd also like to see following/riding be a permanent feature from here on out, but again, LGPE was not the first game to do these things, it just brought them back.

    You know what I did enjoy, but would like to see a polished version off.

    The candies. I don't need to be able to boost every stat by huge numbers.....

    ...but I liked being able to boost enough that in some ways you can kinda alter the rolls certain Pokemon filled.

    Co-op already existed in Emerald at the Battle Tower there

    Not in terms of having a second, human player explore and battle with you throughout the entire game. There's been instances here and there throughout the series, but it's never been a full feature until LGPE.

    PokeMon2.0 Cramorant is too cute for words!

    Box being with you and Pokémon Go connectivity. As well as Pokémon following you.

    I admit the overworld encounters are nice, but that’s currently the only thing I can think of.

    I don't know if it is true but I heard you can get the badges in any order. Like some god the Cinnabar badge very early. If this is true I'd like to see that in Gen 8. A way for you to do things at your own pace

    Candies: Let the EV system benefit from it; instead decide how much one can be fed at time. Spamming A button for 200 candies is bothering.
    Enhanced Co-op: Let the trainers explore your world through wireless. If you have no friend playing the game, it's only useful to catch Pokémon like Chansey or legendaries.
    Box System: Keep it as is. No more PC boxes, hence IV Judge not being limited to Pokémon Centers.
    Phone System: Match-Call (Trainers) and access to Madam Celadon. If you suddenly want to change the Pokémon you hunt, you don't need to travel A to B.

    Other than that, I genuinely hope following Pokémon, no HMs and overworld encounters will return back.

    I'm mixed on overworld encounters. I'm fine with it on large pokémon like Snorlax and Mudsdale, but having a giant aura that screams "Here I am!" surrounding every little Rattata or Grubbin is weird. The smaller pokémon should stay hidden and possibly ambush you. You could also have some larger pokémon ambush you, like Tentacruel attacking from underwater or Onix showing up from underground.

    You can use the box system whenever. Even in the middle of the E4. However the box doesn't heal pokemon like it did in the past. So yes it could make the e4 easier if you have several pokemon trained up. However if you use the e4 for training and evolving purposes it's nice to have the ability to switch pokemon in and out as you go along.

    Yes technically you can do any of the gyms in any order between vermilion, Celadon, saffron, fuchsia and cinnabar.

    I disagree with having a box available to the player at all times. It would make the game too easy and ruins any sense of strategy in that moment. Isn't it better to realize what Pokemon your opponent has and try to overcome the type disadvantage with a strategy?
