Top Tuesday: Favorite Features In Pokemon Let’s Go! Games

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

A couple weeks ago, Nintendo announced two new Pokemon games for the Nintendo Switch titled Let’s Go! Pikachu and Let’s Go! Eevee.

Both games look fantastic and I can’t wait to play them. From the trailer and what they’ve told us thus far about the games, here’s what I’m looking forward to the most.

3. Co-op Mode

I can’t express how much Kris and I have wanted to play a mainstream Pokemon game together side by side on the same cartridge. While it doesn’t seem like we’ll be able to link up the two games together, it’ll be great to see our characters side by side battling together.

2. Exploring the Kanto region again

When Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow came out, I wasn’t old enough to really play the games and understand them. I mean, I could barely read. So, my Pokemon journey started in the Johto region. As I got older, I played Pokemon Blue and Yellow (I still don’t have my own copy of Red… sad day). I enjoyed them. Then FireRed and LeafGreen came out for the Gameboy Advance. It was great to revisit the original region. Now we’ll be able to explore the region in all its 3D, vivid glory. And I can’t wait.

1. Interacting with your Pokemon

It’s great to have a Pokemon out and following you around (or chilling on your shoulder) but it’s another thing to have that Pokemon out as well as a second Pokemon. While I would love the opportunity to play with all my Pokemon rather than just Pikachu or Eevee, but I’ll take what I can get. The graphics are so realistic and it’s awesome to have two Pokemon out by your side at all times and to interact with both of them at different levels.

  1. Fun fact: You can play with all of your Pokemon in Pokemon Sun & Moon. This feature isn’t new to Let’s Go :). The only way to evolve Eevee into Sylveon in Sun & Moon is to spend some time with it by petting it, feeding it, etc.

    The co op mode isn’t for me, but my kids love it.

    Kanto is literally my least favorite region in Pokemon and I’m tired to death of it lol. I still enjoyed beating the game though. I don’t think I’ll play it again any time soon though. If remake Diamond & Pearl I’ll be all over that. Just… keep the GO elements out of that one.

    My favorite part of the game is battling other trainers. I would say catching new Pokemon, but I really don’t like the GO catch mechanic in the game. I shouldn’t have to throw 40 ultraballs at a Rhyhorn for it to decide to stay in one. I could have put that thing to sleep with spore and threw a single ultraball and it would have been mine :).

    I like exploring too. Seeing Lavender Town again made me nostalgic and the classic music in still there too. Some of the cinematic cutscenes are nice too.

    • Yes, I know it’s in Sun & Moon. But it’s more in depth in Let’s Go with the updated graphics and Eevee purrs, which is great, lol. I definitely wish I could do that with all my Pokemon in Let’s Go, though.

      The co-op mode wasn’t as great as I was hoping it would be… it was a cool concept though.

      I don’t remember Kanto much because I was too young when it came out, but I enjoy the first generation. I would love a Sinnoh remake though!

      I miss the wild battles too… the Pokemon Go concept is cool, but I’d rather play it in handheld mode when you don’t have to do the motions and I totally miss “working” for the Pokemon and widdling down their HP.

      The cut scenes are refreshing, I agree. 🙂

  2. My first Pokemon game was SoulSilver, because I had never convinced my mom before that Pokemon was a “good” game for her to buy for me. She liked the pedometer thing that came with SoulSilver, and I searched my town all over for a copy of it, eventually buying it in a seedy game store in a strip mall. I’ve bought every Pokemon game since then, with the exception of Ultra Sun/Moon and the Black/White 2 games (one edition only, I don’t have the money for both types of games!). I bought Blue on the 3DS virtual console a few years ago, to play with my then-boyfriend, but quickly got bored. I tried it again on an emulator a few months ago, and still couldn’t get into it.

    I bought the special edition of Let’s Go, Eevee! because I wanted Mew and it was only obtainable via the Pokeball Plus accessory. I didn’t expect to fall in love with the accessory, too, and even though I only opened the game last night, I’m loving it. I wish there was more customization (I want a blue eyed avatar with the brown hair, dang it!) like there was in one of the previous games. I haven’t tried the co-op mode, but I’m excited to finally get into the Kanto region and discover it, even if the game is a little pared down from the original versions.

    I’m also super excited for the Pokemon Go linking, especially for Meltan.

    • It’s hard to play the older games because they’re so different mechanic and graphics wise. I have a hard time playing the older games as well because I’m just so used to the modern technology.

      Blue eyes, brown hair, yes! That’s me and I want it! But I’m glad you’re enjoying the Pokeball Plus. I haven’t gotten it yet but I’ve heard mixed reviews on it. A lot of people say the game is hard to control with it. I still want to give it a try at some point though.
