Thoughts on Let's Go's post game?

    Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee has one of the best post-game experiences in Pokemon. For the first time ever, we actually get to see a Gen 1 remake that let's you do rematches with practically every important trainer in Kanto. In my opinion, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee easily has the best post-game trainer rematches out of any Pokemon game. I'm talking about Gym Leaders. Elite Four Members. Rivals. Red, Blue & Green. You a fan of Pokemon Adventures? Well than yeah, that's right! Green's here and let me tell you that Red, Blue & Green are one of the toughest trainers to fight when you are a few levels under out of all the Pokemon games I've ever played. You thought Red & Blue (Rival) were easy in Sun & Moon when you were five levels under? You haven't see Red, Blue & Green in Let's Go. They will kick your butt and you will be forced to decide whether you want to use revives or not. However that's not all. The Gym Leaders themselves are very loyal to the typings they have mastery over but at the same time they make up for these predictable weaknesses through different stats and movesets that will take your Pokemon by complete surprise. In conclusion, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee has one of the best post-game experiences...

    Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee has one of the worst post-game experiences in Pokemon. For the first time ever since the original Gen 1, there is no major Battle facility to take part of. No Battle Tower. No Battle Tree. Nothing and it is a real shame because in my opinion, Let's Go boasts arguably the best Gym Leader/Elite Four/Battle Legends rematches I have ever seen in a Pokemon game. You a fan of the Battle Tree? Well than yeah, it's not here. Let's Go has Master Trainers here and let me tell you that it's honestly kind of boring. They do provide a neat challenge but I'd rather see GameFreak invest in the next Battle Tree, one of the funnest post-game experiences that Sun & Moon had to offer that will kick your butt, forcing you to carefully make decisions that will make or break your matches. However that's not all. The online multiplayer is fun, balanced and it really is very accessible but that is until freaking Mewtwo & Mew shows up sweeping your entire team as there are no flat rules. In conclusion, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee has one of the worst post-game experiences...

    Sure would be nice if there was more story though

    Battling trainers isn't exactly interesting or challenging

    Give us more on Red, Green, and Blue's journey
    - Why was Blue in Cerulean Cave? What's her interest in Mewtwo?

    - Why's Archer here? Why can't we chase him to the Sevii Islands?

    Is this a reference to a certain videogamedunkey pair of videos...? :V

    As for the topic, lacking. Master Trainers aren't that great, there's only one minigame with the Game Corner nerfed, and not even a bunch of islands to explore ala FRLG. There's less areas to explore than previous remakes!

    Yeah, I suppose that's one way to put it. More of a rip-off really. Got pretty bored to be honest so doing this was a fun change of pace.

    To sum it up. I think Let's Go easily has the best post-game trainer rematches with Gym Leaders, Elite Four Member and other well-known characters but it also easily has the worst post-game in-general since Gen 1 which is a real shame because GameFreak practically laid the groundwork for creating a potentially better Battle Tree with all the well-down trainer rematches.

    Can't you rematch the Elite Four in every single main series game?

    True but as I said before I think Let's GO has the better trainer-rematches because of how it handles it's Battle Legends, Gym Leaders & Elite Four teams pretty well, maintain consistency with the typings while also covering their consistent weaknesses in other ways. Unless of course your overleveled.

    There's a postgame?

    Shoz summed it up pretty well methinks. I traded Let's Go Pikachu back in after completing the game in favor of Pokemon Stadium 2 (which coincidentally I traded in to acquire credit towards LGP). Now I'm just waiting for Sword and Shield to come out and hopefully I can transfer my Pokemon over to it via Bank.

    Let's see...
    No exploration to do aside from Cerulean cave, which is not that big.
    No postgame sidequest like Looker Bureau, the Delta Episode, the Ultra beasts hunt or the Team Rainbow Rocket.
    And no battle facility.

    Basically, it's just a bunch of trainers who give you no reward for defeating them and you will probably only beat a few of them before getting bored.

    Pretty much it is quite lacking. The only new things that are not already present in Yellow are the Master Trainers and being able to fight Red, Green and Blue (as well as rematches with Gym Leaders). You would likely only be bothering with the Master Trainers to defeat enough to be able to face Red.

    I don't consider battling as good post-game content, so I wasn't pleased with what we got. We should've gotten more areas to explore, because Kanto's way too small as things stand.

    I'm underwhelmed with it. Did some item hunting and shiny hunting and a bit of leveling up, but honestly I'm not playing much of it lately.

    So from what I'm getting at, the battles are good or at the very least their not bad but without these single-focused trainer battles, the trainer rematches or master trainers, there's pretty much no post-game.

    It's the worst Post game we've gotten in years.

    It was so stupid they removed the Sevii Isles...
    And there wasn't any bonus story like chasing down the Sages, Looker Bureau, Episode Delta, Ultra Beast hunting, Rainbow Rocket.... it was just the same old content in RBY apart from Green being in the cave.
    No not-Kanto Pokemon... ugh.
    No Battle Facility either

    Only positive thing I can say is Gym Leader rematches, I'm glad they returned and I hope we can rematch against Gym Masters without doing something like the Battle Chateau/Tree

    I'm fine with it simply because I find the graphics dazzling enough to enjoy a couple of hours after work. Last time I had similar feeling was XY era, also being the first introduced game of its' respective hardware, despite lacking post-game content besides battling.

    It really is refreshing to ride my Pokémon, shiny-hunt and re-battle GYM leaders, although more effort could have gone to create an objectively-better post-game.

    The lack of post-game content is easily one of the many things wrong with the Let's Go games. I do think they should have at least made a new explorable area as large as Sevii Islands, with some sort of battle facility there.

    It's pretty effing boring. I didn't expect much obviously since the original Kanto games barely had any post game at all, but you'd think that Gamefreak would have tried a little harder than to just add those gym leader rematches and Green and master trainers.

    The only things about the post game worth noting about is as followed.

    Archer's letter to you, capturing Mewtwo. (Seriously, that pokemon is a challenge to battle even without the +1 to everything.) Fighting best crazy girl Green... and your partners little gift being cute.

    Besides that... there really isn't much of a post game or even a reason to keep playing.

    I like Let's Go... but I question why it exists other than Gamefreak attempting to get their feet wet in the Switch pool.

    I do like Gym Leaders rematches, that is all :/
    Bad that none of them had a Mega Evolution

    Imagine if GF actually improved their games with DLC...I'd pay extra for decent post-game content for LGPE. The lack of ridable Pokémon honestly makes Sw/Sh look kinda lame.

    It’s still early in the reveal cycle. Rideable Pokémon might still be in the games but not yet shown because of some sort of new mechanic that GF wants to show off. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some mini game that allows you to ride Ponyta, Rapidash, And Mudsdale to represent the UK’s history of horseback riding.
