All aboard the Pokémon nostalgia train! *Beep!* *Beep!* With the release of Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, long time Pokémon fans will get many flashbacks and a lot of nostalgia when they play this game.
Nintendo has taken us back to the Kanto region in a whole revamped adventure for Pokémon trainers. And that’s only the beginning…
What is the game about?
At first glance, this game seems like just another Pokémon Go game but made for the Switch. Thankfully, it’s not. These two games are, in my opinion, one hell of a nostalgia trip for returning and loyal Pokémon Trainers.
As you load up the game, you are greeted with none other than the beautiful and vast Kanto region. You start the game just like how you would if you were playing the original Pokémon Yellow, Blue, Fire Red, or Leaf Green.
That’s right, you start off in good old Pallet Town. So basically, in a Poke’ ball nutshell, you get to the play the old classic Kanto games in all of their original beauty, but with the amazing graphics and smooth gameplay of the Nintendo Switch.
Not only that, but after you get into Viridian city, you are greeted with something that players of Pokémon Yellow and Blue will appreciate greatly.
“We’re blasting off again!”
Ring any bells? I sure hope so! You get to see and eventually face off against none other than Jessie, James, and of course Meowth!
So, its a revamp. But is there anything new?
That’s what I wondered myself when I first started the game. It seemed like it was just a remake for the Kanto games. And for some concepts it has in the game are exactly like the old games. Gyms, Pokémon, rivals everything. But, there are a few things that are indisputably new in this game.
- You don’t start off with the choice of Squirtle, Charmander, or Bulbasaur. Depending on which game you chose, you get either Eevee or Pikachu and they get to walk with you or ride on your head.
- If you catch a particularly big Pokémon like Snorlax, you get to take a ride on them.
- The Poke ball Plus
There are many other new features in these two games, but what would be the fun of it if I told you guys everything?
Pros and cons of the game.
And just like any other game, it comes with pros and cons. Let’s take a look at a few of ’em.
- The gameplay is undeniably fun. You can be entertained for a very long time with this game.
- The nostalgia factor
- Graphics look amazing and very crisp.
- Just the overall cuteness factor for Pikachu and Eevee.
- The Controllers are quite sensitive and can take a while to get used to.
- The fact that you catch Pokémon in the way of Pokémon Go is a bit off putting.
Is there a possibility for a new region?
With the premiere of this game, I thoroughly believe that in the future Nintendo can and will make a new Pokémon game with a whole new region for the Switch.
It just makes sense. With how they made the graphics, gameplay and even the fact that recreated Kanto solely for it to be playable for the Nintendo Switch. It’s the perfect set up.
