Pokemon Let's GO Pikachu/Eevee RECENT HAPPENINGS Thread

Since my last post I cleared up Mt. Moon and the Team Rocket influence in the area, waiting very patiently for a Clefable to appear so I could work on the Pokedex a bit before I progressed. Normally I have middle-stage starters by this point but Bulbasaur only just evolved as I took on the fossil guy, whilst Charmander didn't evolve until I'd cleared Nugget Bridge! My team handled all the route trainers without major issue though so I didn't really struggle. Trace was defeated soundly before I made my way up Nugget Bridge and onto Route 24/25, where I began hunting for my seventh team member... a Squirtle!

Searching for Squirtle took ages, oh my god I had two catch combos ruined around the 6-7 mark by the Pokemon fleeing (both Meowth and Pidgey) but I managed to reach 11 combos with Psyduck in the end. My entire team hit level 17 by doing this meaning I had to be very careful not to surpass the assigned level cap (level 19) but thanks to a larger than usual line-up I was able to manage that. I saved Bill from staying a Nidorino permanently and made my way back to Cerulean City to take on Misty, who I suspected would be a challenge. She was not! Pikachu learnt Light Screen right before taking her on so I set that up against Psyduck and 2HKOed with Thundershock, before swapping to Ivysaur to whittle Starmie down with Leech Seed + Vine Whip for a clean sweep. Took a little while due to the Scald burn + Vine Whip being awful STAB now, but c'est la vie.

From there I reached Route 6 to capture my eighth team member, an Abra. Finding one was pretty difficult since they kept teleporting away but I got one! Training it will be... fun, with only Seismic Toss for damage. Thanks to my Squirtle hunt I'd caught the 5 Meowth necessary to get the free Arcanine, so I made them my ninth team member and rode on her majestically back to the route so I could clear the trainers. Then I saved.

Double posting time...

I've made quite a bit of progress and am now sat inside Pokemon Tower! Clearing the routes around Vermillion wasn't too tough but I quickly realised that without "grinding" (i.e. catching a bunch of Pokemon for experience) I was going to be under-levelled for Surge. As you can see below, I'm still a level behind his ace Raichu and that's after making it to Lavender Town! It has been... surprisingly fun! Not had too many major challenges outside of Mina's Mr. Mime and the coach trainer who gives you the TM for Brick Break (that Primeape is scary) but the advantage to having so many team members is the varied typings available to you. Hikers lose to half my team, Black Belts get wrecked by Kadabra, Bug Catchers lose to Charmeleon / Arcanine, Sailors lose to Ivysaur / Pikachu, etc.

Stand-out team members so far have been the Partner-Eevee which is absolutely busted in this game, Graveler thanks to resisting Normal and learning all the strong moves early on, Nidoqueen who has an actually diverse movepool and Wartortle, because Scald goes brrr. Arcanine has been a major disappointment so far thanks to Ember and just not having that much power? Pikachu and Ivysaur have also been a bit underwhelming but Ivysaur makes up for it by being the fourth most unkillable team member behind Eevee, Graveler and Nidoqueen. My newest team member, Machop, has been pretty solid so far as well - I'm wary of how frail it is but compared to other recent additions it's been actually usable, so that's nice.

Surge got demolished by Nidoqueen and Geodude - Charmeleon failed to KO Magnemite with Dig and got one-shot by Thunderbolt which was an *oof* moment but what can you do? Mina's Jigglypuff got Headbutt'd to death by Arcanine before Mr. Mime's Psywave ruined Wartortle and Kadabra combined, was an awkward time. Still! All good so far, very much enjoying the game.

Triple posting? In this economy? Nice to see the Let's Go games are as popular as ever...

I haven't touched the game in over a week now since I don't want to progress until I evolve my trade evolution team members (of which I gained another since my last post) so this update comes from the last time I played, which was... the 17th September? Quite a while to wait. EDIT: I have now evolved my team members! So now I can progress. Also grabbed myself the TM for Poison Jab in Celadon City so I finally have a good Poison type move? Nidoqueen and Grimer are eating well! Venusaur is not, and Gengar would like it but doesn't really need it.

Anyway, I'm currently stood outside Silph Co. having cleared the Celadon Gym, Rocket Hideout, Pokemon Tower and sneaking my way down routes 16-17-18 to reach Fuchsia City where several new team additions awaited me! Erika was a reasonable challenge thanks to her Vileplume almost 2HKOing my Fire types with Mega Drain, but a combination of Charmeleon + Kadabra + Arcanine pulled through for me! Giovanni was pretty easy if I recall correctly outside of his Persian KOing my Machoke, who failed to deal the finishing blow with Brick Break. I made my way through Pokemon Tower which is so much sadder than the other Kanto games' showings of this place, catching Phantom the Gastly whilst I was there. I trained them up against the Black Belts in the Fighting Dojo thanks to half of them having no moves to hit Ghost types which was neat.

Fuchsia City was my next stop before clearing the lower routes, Silph Co. and the next few gyms because GO Park was where I was going to nab some new team members. First was Snuggles the Snorlax who I caught en-route, followed by my actual new additions from Pokemon GO - Aurora the Alolan Vulpix, Goop the Alolan Grimer and Dumbbell the Melmetal! I also attained the power to surf which led me to Route 10 and Noodle the Dratini as well as Cinnabar Island where Pterror the Aerodactyl joined! Finally was the fun of farming Tauros on Route 15 to capture Ruffian the Pinsir, my second to last team member! Any guesses on who the last team member will be? I get them pretty soon. All that Tauros grinding let me get my team up to level 34 (level 35 in the case of Dratini) so we got some team members to evolve - Gastly, Dratini and Vulpix. Should say Pikachu, Ivysaur and Machop also all evolved around Celadon since that was new from the last post.

Quadruple posting? Poggers. Hardly surprising since Scarlet/Violet are out, who on earth would be playing Let's Go? Apparently, me! Trying to speed my way to the end before the 18th so I can play Scarlet on release day, going surprisingly well so far.

Since my last post... over a month ago... I've cleared Silph Co., all the available routes around Fuchsia City (Routes 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18), taken on both Koga and Sabrina, surfed around Routes 19, 20 and 21, caught some stuff in the Seafoam Islands and fought Blaine. Takes a while when you're rotating your team around! My 19th and final team member was obtained in Silph Co. - a Lapras I named Melody. Never used one before and I am keen to give it a go, plus you can Surf on it in the overworld! Whilst clearing Silph Co. Charmeleon and Wartortle both evolved, and Grimer evolved on one of the routes before I took on Koga.

The team as you can see is rather under-levelled, and the low levels really do impact some Pokemon - Nidoqueen, Alakazam and Ninetales feel much weaker than they maybe should, whilst Golem and Pinsir are struggling with speed and bulk issues a bit. Was particularly noticeable in the Saffron Gym going up against Jynx and Kadabra, they'd out-speed and hit really hard? The only other major challenges have been against opposing Muk, because Toxic + Protect + Minimize strategies are disgusting and I hope whoever implemented them is having a miserable life (seriously it's a nightmare, and so slow!) That being said the Gym Leaders weren't too tough - Koga went down to a combination of Gengar, Alakazam, Golem and Melmetal - everyone got a KO except Golem who was hit way too hard by Venomoth and needed Gengar to score a second win. Sabrina went down to Gengar (again), Snorlax, Muk and Pinsir where a lucky Sp.Def drop meant Gengar 2HKOed Mr. Mime through Light Screen and prevented it from getting annihilated by Psychic. Blaine was wrecked by Aerodactyl, Blastoise, Dragonair and Nidoqueen - Dragonair has been reasonable so far, hasn't felt as weak as I expected it to.

Now I have a week to beat Giovanni, Trace, clear Victory Road, grind everyone to level 55, beat the Elite 4 & Champion, complete the Pokedex, complete all the rematches, take on the 19 Master Trainers for my team (might skip this one) and fight Red + Green. Doable? I reckon so.

5 posts in a row, let's go! Only one more post left to do and I'll be finished!

Well since my last post I beat Giovanni and Trace, grinded my team to level 50 to take on Victory Road because of how annoying being under-levelled for those aforementioned fights was, took on Victory Road, grinded AGAIN to level 55 and then took on and defeated the Pokemon League! Worst part of all of it was the grinding honestly, no consistent Chansey encounters before the post-game sucks so I had to capture a ton of Nidorina on Route 23 to claw my way to 50, then a ton more Machoke to make it to level 55. Found a shiny Fearow whilst doing it though, so that was neat? And my Dragonair evolved into Dragonite at the end, so my team is complete!

Giovanni fell to a combination of Mega Blastoise, Alolan Ninetales, Machamp and Lapras - I can't remember exactly how it went but I think Machamp and Lapras only weakened their opponents so Ninetales and Blastoise had to claim an additional win each. Trace was even more of a pain thanks to his evolved team - Aerodactyl crushed Pidgeot, Ninetales froze Vileplume to death (no actual freezes though), Lapras drowned Marowak and Eevee whittled down Raichu for the victory? But again, barely managed it and was convinced to get to level 50 before the slog that is Victory Road.

Then I took on the Elite 4 and Champion...

059.png
068.png
089-a.png
127.png
143.png
Vs. Lorelei:
Pinsir 2HKOed Dewgong with Rock Slide, taking no damage due to a lucky flinch. Then Alolan Muk 2HKOed Slowbro with Crunch, tanking a Surf in the process before Arcanine 2HKOed Jynx with Flamethrower - Psychic almost two-shot but luckily we outsped for the win. Snorlax spammed Thunder Punch against Cloyster (whose Hydro Pump and Ice Beam either missed or did very little damage in return) whilst Machamp won the match by 0HKOing her ace Lapras with Superpower!

006-my.png
038-a.png
065.png
094.png
149.png
Vs. Bruno:
Alolan Ninetales 0HKOed Onix with Ice Beam, because Onix sucks and should not be on the team of an Elite 4 member. I decided to Mega Evolve Charizard into its Y form to annihilate Hitmonlee with Fly, then sent out Dragonite in its debut battle to do the same versus Machamp. Was surprised it also 0HKOed, guess Dragonite is that strong? Alakazam smacked Hitmonchan around with Psychic... which it lived?! Disappointing, Alakazam was 3 levels higher! Gengar then spammed Thunderbolt versus Poliwrath to win the second match.

031.png
065.png
089-a.png
142.png
143.png
Vs. Agatha:
Brought my own Poison-type in Nidoqueen versus Arbok, who two-shot it with Earthquake and Surf (it lived on basically 1HP). Alolan Muk came out versus the first (weaker) Gengar and got burned by Will-o-Wisp, but 2HKOed with Crunch anyway. Alakazam returned to take on Weezing and got some redemption by one-shotting it with Psychic, so I moved onto sending out Aerodactyl against Golbat and watched Rock Slide go brrr (with the flinch as well). Snorlax came out versus her ace Gengar to KO with Earthquake, easy.

003-m.png
009.png
038-a.png
131.png
809.png
Vs. Lance:
Venusaur was sent out first and Mega Evolved... to KO Seadra with Petal Dance. A most difficult battle I'm sure we can all agree! Melmetal vs. Aerodactyl was next - the fossil did about a third with Earthquake whilst Thunder Punch claimed the win. Alolan Ninetales was switched in to fight Dragonite and Ice Beam did not 0HKO! So I used it twice, but it was a bit disappointing. Lapras showed Gyarados how much better of a ride Pokemon it is by zapping it with Thunderbolt a couple of times, before Blastoise flexed on the anime by winning versus a Charizard. Simple stuff!

009-m.png
059.png
127.png
131.png
133-pa.png
142.png
Vs. Champion Trace:
Battle of the birds kicked off the match - Aerodactyl vs. Mega Pidgeot! Rock Slide smashed it without issue. Trace went straight for Raichu so out came Eevee for a starter duel, where Eevee tanked two Thunders and KOed with Veevee Volley + Bouncy Bubble. Arcanine went out versus Vileplume and roasted it with Flamethrower, except it switched into Slowbro? It got burnt for doing that though so I swapped in Pinsir whilst it set up a Light Screen. Slowbro took nothing from X Scissor thanks to Vileplume's Reflect, but then Trace swapped it out AGAIN for Rapidash! So in came Blastoise on a Flare Blitz. I Mega Evolved (see how every starter got to Mega Evolve?) and blasted Rapidash with Surf, but it lived and switched in Vileplume... who did not survive the Surf. Pinsir came back out versus Slowbro and finally clinched the win, and Arcanine beat Rapidash with Superpower + Dragon Pulse. Lapras came in and beat Marowak with Ice Beam, and with that I became the Champion!

Now that's all done, all that I have left to do is the following:
  1. Complete the Pokedex (currently sat at 135/153)
  2. Beat all the Team Rocket, Gym Leader, Elite 4 & Champion rematches
  3. Defeat Green and Red
  4. Beat the Master Trainers for all 19 team members
Due to some IRL stuff I won't start Scarlet / Violet until the 28th at the earliest, so I have until the 23rd to do all of the above? Which is easily doable! Might have to do some grinding before the end but that's fine now I can access Cerulean Cave for Chansey chains. I'll save my team thoughts until that final post since I'm not 100% certain how I feel about every team member just yet! I didn't even use Golem or Raichu against the Pokemon League...

This is it, the final post! I have officially beaten as much of Let's Go Eevee as I can stomach - my Pokedex is complete thanks to a handy Poke Ball Plus I have owned but never used, and I've rematched everyone available to me. The only things I haven't done are beat Red or take on the Master Trainers, because to do the former you need to do the latter and my team kept getting crushed by their opponents. I could grind for candies and do it but honestly I don't want to? I looked at my available strategies and half of them involve Toxic + Protect, which is not how I want to clear the game. Sure you can level up to 100 and win with some candy boosts but I've grinded plenty in this game, it's time to move on.

Here's how the remaining match-ups since my last post looked - I forgot you could fight Morimoto and because of that each team member got 9 major boss battles each which was nice? My Red line-up would theoretically be at 8 now I'm forgoing that battle but I rematched the Gym Leaders twice to earn cash to pay for Mega Stones with random teams so everyone got roughly equal treatment. I'll put it in spoilers because there's a lot of battles!

This was such a cool team to use, with almost all of my favourite Kantonian Pokemon on one singular squad mixed in with some options I'd never consider using previously. Using all 3 starters that I went out and caught was a fantastic experience, and all 3 did pretty well! I think Blastoise may have been the best overall but once Charizard fully evolved it was a menace, whilst Venusaur was running Normal + Grass coverage until the end-game which was... unfortunate. Eevee was as busted as I expected, never super strong but it failed to be KOed and the Partner moves offered great utility compared to Partner-Pikachu who was more offensively-focused (if I remember right).

Golem was a surprisingly solid choice! Hated special moves (will never forget it being KOed by Koga's Venomoth) but Rock/Ground was such a great typing across the board. Aerodactyl was amazing thanks to its Speed and spammable Rock Slide (don't think I ever really used Crunch), Lapras was pretty reliable from the moment I got it, Raichu was great at spamming Thunderbolt and never changing its moveset by the time it got to Vermillion City, Alolan Muk was a menace once it evolved, Machamp and Nidoqueen were consistent across the board... everyone else was fine but not outstanding? A particular shame for Alakazam and Gengar, whose last outing in Kanto with me (Pokemon Red) they were my MVPs. Think Eevee was my MVP in this game, if I have one at all - rotating team members kind-of takes away from that, nobody felt present enough to really establish one. Still! Fun times.
