    Whether it's your Pokémon entry point or you're returning to Kanto yet again, Pokémon Let's Go is for everyone. The lame motion controls aside, this is adventure perfection, not once feeling jaded after dozens of hours' play.

    Nintendo and Game Freak have managed something quite special with Pokémon: Let's Go. It's a game that is so clean and streamlined that it is a near-perfect entry-level Pokémon experience for people new to the series. At the same time, it so perfectly taps into nostalgia that the oldest of old fans - people who really should have moved on, but can't because Pokémon is so damn charming - can find new ways to appreciate their hobby all over again.

    Gamefreak managed to enhance the nostalgia of past games with creative improvements. Regardless if you are a veteran or a beginner, there are loads of incentives to catch em all.

    Game Freak has pulled a Hannah Montana and found the best of both worlds here, solidifiying an experience that embraces newcomers without forgetting the hardcore that will be itching to dive in. Acting as what is essentially a remake of Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow prevents this from being truly groundbreaking, but the foundations established here spell an exciting future for Pokémon on Switch.

    It’s the perfect title for longtime fans who want a relaxed experience, anyone who wants to try a Pokémon title for the first time or is just looking for something on the easier side to try with a younger relative. Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee! might not be a look at what to entirely expect for Pokémon’s future on console, but does a wonderful job as a first step moving forward from traditional handhelds.

    Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! does introduce several good new features, but it fails to address some long-running issues. Though it’s nice to see Kanto brought to life again in this fashion, especially with some really nice new arrangements for the classic soundtrack, the game relies too heavily on nostalgia. It succeeds in making Pokémon more accessible than ever, but aside from the shift away from random encounters, it doesn’t take enough risks. This is a good entry point for newcomers to the series, but it ultimately leaves veterans yearning for more.

    While it’s nearly impossible to hate a Pokémon game, Let’s Go Eevee doesn’t rank with the greats. Rather than forging a new path in the current generation, this quasi-remake relies too heavily on the weak gameplay of the mobile hit and lacks both the strategy and motivation to succeed. Eevee is cute and innocent, but this particular entry has not reached its fully-evolved form.

You have trainer battles everywhere so if you want to fight stuff there are that in spades. There are also tons of battles you need to do just to progress through the game.
    Beside that you catch Pokemons by throwing Pokemon balls at them and this actually mix up the gameplay in a good way. Beside that the hd visuals is really well made.
    So yeah if you like Pokemon or been thinking about getting back into the series this game is a great place to start.

The lack of random encounters and battling wild pokémon is jarring for some, but for myself others it is a nice change. No endless Zubats in Mt. Moon, plenty of trainers to battle for experience (as well as getting experience for catching pokémon), and accurate sizes for all pokémon in and out of battle. As a long time fan of the games, I do not see the reason for hate. Next year we will get Generation VIII games, and hopefully that will silence some of the naysayers. Expand

    I don't know why people are so upset with this game. Yes it's not a perfect Pokemon game, It surely doesn't appeal to the hardcore searchingI don't know why people are so upset with this game. Yes it's not a perfect Pokemon game, It surely doesn't appeal to the hardcore searching fans of Blue,Red and Yellow, but it isn't bad neither! This game was made to bring back great moments for the older generations, but also to introduce the new one to the Kanto Region. Personally I played Pokemon since Blue,Red and Yellow and I must say that I am loving this game. The only thing I wished they would've slow down on is the whole ''Pokemon Go'' type of thing. Not being able to battle wild pokemons to gain XP is the only thing that made this game lose a few points by my standards. Expand

Not really meant for the nostalgic audience. This game was made for toddlers and loses all the challenge and excitement from the original games. I just want to battle Pokemon, not feed them berries. I beat the first gym using 1 Pokemon (Butterfree...Butterfree really????). I do not care about online Nintendo and I will not pay to play. How do you go from Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey to this? Expand

    Nice graphics and music is all good one can say about this game. Everything else is just a big let down. The worst is the menue system whereNice graphics and music is all good one can say about this game. Everything else is just a big let down. The worst is the menue system where you have to click up to 16 times to reach specific functions. Next comes the difficulty that is not existant except for a few unfair battles where I even encountered a trainer that had a Pokemon that was not legitimate (a level 26 Diglett that knows the move Fissure)! Why is there still no options to setup the difficulty as I like it? They could for example have listened to the Pokemon fanbase and build in options for Nuzlock runs where one even could configure the details of it. Instead we get a boiled down version that is even more basic than the original Pokemon Yellow. This was a waste of money. Expand

A simple concept ofOk, first off does anybody even new to the series actually think abilities and items are overwhelming for new players? A simple concept of innate passives and equippable items present in most rpgs, something as basilar as that is somehow hard for people to grasp? When it worked just fine for over 20 years without seeing kids gouging their eyes out at how difficult the mechanics of baby's first jrpg are? Gamefreak apparently thinks they do. Terribly out of touch and having a track record for not listening to players and removing the features they like this time they're insulting the intelligence of kids and go players alike. Masuda is a delirious hack and should resign, I'm a passionate competitive player and I fear and I quote ''let's go will become the pillar of the franchise for the next 20 years''. that would ruin the competitive scene completely, please sends a message to gamefreak to remind them not only this is unneeded but there's a noticeable competitive fanbase that loves the game as it is.
