HOT BUNZ FOR ME

Seriously, they're all so adorable. I wish we got to see a bit more with that trailer, but it definitely seems to be a return to form with their formula. First thing I noticed was random encounters were back (which I think I'm mixed on at this point) in addition to the capturing after weakening returning as well. It doesn't seem like they'll be implementing those Go! features again for this, which may be a relief for most.

But yeah, can't wait to learn more! I'm going to keep my eye mostly on gameplay than the actual Pokemon because I found it quite enjoyable encountering Pokemon I had never seen before when I completely walled myself off of spoiling the Pokemon of Sun and Moon prior to release.

I only saw the evolution's of the main pokemon group myself so I could decide if I really wanted to stick with Rowlet (for S/M) & I still stuck with my choice; cause come on OWLS. xD The rest of the pokemon for the S/M series I didn't spoil myself on since I wanted to see them when playing the game, though the show likes to hype some of them up & some of the bug types in S/M are kinda... lame Not so great; impo. xp

Here's hoping gen 8 learns from it's past mistakes. Or not, I'm not judging.. YET.

Ah, yes the new Pokémon game. Sword and Shield, I was kind of put off by the version titles at first because....I don't know why. Expected something better perhaps. XD Anyway, this Pokémon interests me more than any of the others that have been as of recent, and since Black & White. At the moment mainly down to the visuals, that landscape in a Pokémon game looks sweet! Alright, my choice of if I get the game won't be down to that though. I need more to convince me.

Such as yes, I want to see a lot of past gen Pokémon available to capture for your team. More character customisation and decent story. Plenty of side stuff too. Agree with what Moony, I would like to see wild Pokémon roaming about and not just simply invisible to the eye or hiding in grass. The starters look OK, not sure which one I'd go for between them, but probably not Grookey.

I doubt what I said would happen since the trailer shows the classic encounter mechanics. It's a shame because the world felt more alive in Let's Go, and this was probably also in development before those games were finished and was therefore made with the classic encounter mechanics in mind.

@Queen: I saw that before you posted it, and found it amusing at the time. I won't be shocked if someone mods it into the game, since I just read that people have managed to mod Shrek into Smash Ultimate.

Finally buff Pokemon its all I really needed in my new Pokemon game! I honestly hear a lot about people wanting the Pokemon in the overworld back and I am honestly against it mainly for one reason. It makes it more annoying to find a particular Pokemon let say if you were trying to find a particular Pokemon on the route you literally have to sit and wait for your low % chance of finding it loading in and do nothing while waiting. Eh When its random encounter each individual spawn Pokemon is one roll and doesn't require me to halt and not play until it finally appears and I don't really like how they run out of the grassy area and can force encounter you outside it.

Also I have really been loving the Scottish Pokemon Trainer memes if you haven't seen them you really should they are amazing! Grin

You make a good point about overworld spawning Yuri. I've only judged it on the visual aspect and didn't know it had any negative impacts on gameplay like how you mentioned.

I also like to imagine that second image being the opposite of Ash trying to get Pikachu in his ball at the start of the anime. XD

You see I thought it was cool at first but then I started looking for Onyx and I actually tried doing it the usual way run around until I see it....and let me tell you that was annoying. what you do is you spray those rare sprays and then you sit in one spot and wait for the rare Pokemon to spawn and I honestly hated random encounter in this more mainly because it feels like you can avoid them but if your trying for a certain something or chaining something going to block your way!

Pikachu ain't never going back in there! It dark in there and Pikachu is afraid of the dark!

Yeah the chaining captures to get the rarer Pokemon in the area was probably the worst part about that game. I mean luckily, I could give away those Pokemon to Oak later and he'd reward with candies, but even then, that reward isn't always solid and helpful. I'm glad it's back to just random, and I'd never thought I'd say that XD

I honestly try to avoid doing that in Pokemon Lets go mainly because I don't want to overlevel I'm honestly having a decent challenge, but that because I keep switching out Pokemon regularly to try to complete the pokedex because the game feels definitely a game that you try to complete the pokedex in.

I actually still need to evolve some trading Pokemon, but I am very lazy about getting my switch online. I'm kinda waiting for Pokemon and Animal Crossing to get closer to start my year.
