Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

Discussion in 'Let's Go, Pikachu & Eevee' started by ((JAWS)), Jan 30, 2018.

    I thought this too. It was especially difficult leveling up new members, because once they hit a certain stage they would perpetually be stuck a couple of levels behind everything else. The fact that trainer battles gave so little exp didn't help either.

    You can always box your higher leveled Pokemon if you want to create a balance. But yeah, the Exp. Share should have been optional.

    I tried doing that in the later portion of the game with my Charizard that gained boosted experience, but it hardly helped. I'd put it away for chunk of time, only to have to put it back away an hour later. If anything, it made me feel like I could use Charizard even less, as I din't even have the option. And then there was still the issue with having to use my Gyarados way more than everything else on my team. The only way to solve that problem would be to make it the only Pokémon on my team for a while, and that's just too extreme.

    And really, you should not have to take Pokémon off your team to keep balance, so it's still poor design.

    I really want to know why a high ranking Nintendo employee directly stated that we could turn off the EXP. Share on a Pokémon by Pokémon basis on a major live stream. How could he be so horribly misinformed?

    Because it is not a big deal to most people and he was making an educated guess based on past games.

    I just want to know why a few trainer classes share the same animation when defeated. It’s mainly the Lass, Beauty, and Female TR Grunt but all those three just do the same hand gesture followed by putting their hands on their hips. It’s a nitpick I know but couldn’t they have done something a bit different for each of them lol

    This game does nothing but scream "there was no effort put into any of this". Why would it be different with the trainer class animations?

    Still, he, as a Nintendo representative speaking in official capacity, went out and stated something directly which was incorrect. An official live stream isn't really the place to be making educated guesses and passing them off as fact, regardless of how important it is. Even if this were something I personally didn't care about, I would still have to question it.

    The irony of this is, if I remember correctly, he brought up the fact in the first place by saying that some people may not want to use it, so he was acknowledging that it is important to some people.

    That's probably just simple way to save on work. Alternatively, they couldn't come up with anything all that different for the three of them, and decided they could get away with reusing the same animation. I never noticed, myself.

    Because when you're a front-facing PR guy, the reality of the matter is that sometimes the small bits of information get lost in translation or transition and you have to do the best you can with what you have.

    That's it. That's the reality of it. It happens. What's the impediment to moving on, at this point?

    They're not the same at all. They have different hand gestures and postures. They just have similar faces and even them they're still visibly different.

    I actually think the Lass and Beauty have 2 of the best animations in the whole game. Both start out cheery and cute but when they lose they drop that persona and show their hilariously mean looking true self. The Beauty does this better but the Lass is still good.

    There isn't. I was just curious as to what lead to that moment behind the scenes.

    This game has many flaws, but honestly saying that no effort was put in it, it's a bit unfair.
    Mind you, not trying to make you change your mind, as I know your opinion after all.
    You don't like it? Fine, but don't give a judgement on a game that you didn't even play.
    Hope you didn't take my words too badly and if you did then sorry, but it's difficult to tell on'es tone on the internet.

    So I’m half way through let’s go Eevee and so far it’s is so much better than sun and moon. The amount of hand holding feels waaaay less, with some battles being trickier for me. I am constantly changing my team and finding that I have to continuously watch the levels on my team and balance them out. I’ve already ran around with only two Pokémon while catching Pokémon just to level them up to match the rest of my team. Although Eevee is a powerhouse that I won’t box and I only use in battle as a last resort lol so yeah.

    Also I didn’t think I’d say this, but not battling the wild Pokémon is one of my favourite things with the way the game works. I still find captures get me going when they jump around, and it’s not as much repetition with battle after battle. I dont have to worry that my Pokémon will faint while training either which is very welcomed. Yes it does feel a bit easier in that way, but really I don’t have anything to complain about yet.

    I am impressed at your attention to detail. I would never have noticed that lol.

    Daaaaaang lol. I had that thought cross my mind, given how minimalistic some aspects of the game are, but overall, I have really really enjoyed my time with Let's Go Eevee. The nostalgia, new story beats that pay homage to the classics, and a second chance to "catch them all" back on the original stomping grounds. I just hope they recognize that the games are momentum builders and deliver something next level this year. If it is a half hearted effort, I might just pass.

    Because it's not true.

    Just ignore Creyk, my dude. They post that sort of stuff all the time as well as straight up incorrect claims about sales. Their posts have no merit.

    What's your opinion on Let's Go man? It seems like I see a lot of negative commentary surrounding the game, but for what it is, I thought it was fantastic.

    I haven't played a Pokemon game since I blazed through Moon. I like how they addressed your role as the Champion in the post game narrative, and I really hope we see continued story continuity, or a shift in the game world, in the post game. I never really got into the breeding-heavy competitive side of these games. The most I ever really aimed for were to get natures conducive to whatever attack stat I was bulking and then trying to load up on vitamins early on. I never farmed EVs diligently, so the candy system introduced in Let's Go is probably my favorite feature, especially since catching mechanics now have an interactive component beyond battling, and powering up a Pokemon you just caught is easy.

    I loved them. I don't think we'll be seeing any more content for LGPE released but maybe in future Let's Go games we'll see more post-game.

    Oh finally! Me too!

    The only thing I did not like was that we had a Pokemon box in our bag that we could use without restriction. It is far from a deal breaker and the quality of life improvement means I don't think we will see it go, but I missed that feeling of desperation you could get when moving between towns and it was just you and the squad. Granted, without non-trainer battles to worry about, it is even less of an issue too.

    Like I've said elsewhere, I hope they re-look at catch mechanics for Gen 8 and re-integrate our partner Pokemon into the process, but I really like the changes.

    Majority of the community like LGPE, the ones that don't just never shut up.

    I actually really liked the box being accessible at any time. It makes swaps really easy and is pretty revolutionary. My one biggest complaint is that the party is mixed in with the box pokemon. I'd prefer that they have a separate section for the party like other games.

    I'm happy for the buddy system to remain a LGPE exclusive, but following and riding pokemon should be carried over.
