This game will be so much harder for the people who dont play pokemon!

Yeah their is far to much still not known. I'm still getting the eevee edition regardless. But people need to chill out and quit complaining about the catching system because their isn't enough info yet.

Don’t get me wrong I love Pokémon, but this looks like it’s just full of gimmicks.

They better let us catch pokemon like in other games cause the pokemon go style sucks. Like give us an option to turn it off at the beginning of the game when we're giving our name. If they do that then one of the biggest cons of the games will be fixed

My question is how in the heck do you level your Pokémon up? Without wild battles it takes the entire leveling system out? I’m confused.

So you will need to pay money to play pokemon online.

Can somebody please tell me what are these "hardcore" missing features everybody's talking about?? The only thing they took out from previous games was wild pokemon battling and I wouldn't call that a "hardcore" feature. It was more tedious and annoying than anything.

I thought all social components would be delegated to the Go app. Still, as mentioned in the video, fighting wild Pokémon for XP was the bulk of the core game loop. If that's replaced by a motion control minigame, how does training and evolving actually work in this one?
caleb woolman (1 month ago)
to bad to trade u have to pay for it
Frankie Ortega (1 month ago)
A lot of people are mad that they don’t have wonder trade but it’s the original 151 what difference does it make 😂

I was gonna get this game as an accessory for Pokemon go until they announced it only has gen 1 which I caught all of in Pokemon go, so I'll wait for gen 8 next year

So if that's an analogue stick on the pokeball can you play the whole game using that as a controller?

Really nice video guys. Let's Go Pokémon games having online play is awesome. 4th Edge Out.
UnoriginalValol (1 month ago)
I'm honestly really excited to see how this goes, and I'm glad it has some form of online, and can't wait to try it!
Dean Pan (1 month ago)
Think about this. Online battling won’t require you to breed for 20 hours, this will just be grab a great charizard and go. That’s really cool.
Dean Pan (1 month ago)
Of course there’s online...
C14hurchy (1 month ago)
This is only a very good thing. I expected this but still had my doubts and needed for it to be confirmed. Still really gutted about the lack of wild Pokemon fighting and the grind as this has always been a massive part of original Pokemon. If you do in fact have to battle other trainers to level up your Pokemon what happens if you're constantly battling/getting challenged or challenging trainers with really high Pokemon? Having wild Pokemon to battle/grind/and to weaken with the potential to kill a Pokemon before you capture it really is a big part of the game or at least original Pokemon.
Outer Tsuchinoko (1 month ago)
Can you guys investigate whether shiny pokemon can be catchable in the game. We know from the Q&A that a shiny transferred from Pokemon Go will be shiny in Let's Go, but no clarification on whether or not they can be caught in Let's Go. Many in the shiny hunting community are wondering this because of the new way pokemon appear in the wild instead of being random encounters.
JAMES C (1 month ago)
The haters don't own a switch so does it really matter if they are happy?
Toxzii (1 month ago)
Guys. We will still be getting a new way on how to grind even tho we didnt see any battle vs wild pokemon. Ok? Just get this. We have only been seeing a trailer of the game. After E3 we all will forget about the missunderstandings.
Noel Silva (1 month ago)
I'm glad it having online and nothing else because hacked Pokemon are out the window. And hope they fix that problem with the 2019 game. And I'm a little glad that we still get experience points from catching and battling this just make the game a little harder when it comes to gym battle because u can't just enter and overpowered them u maybe have to plan and error but also if it comes down to it u can ask for help and do the gym in co-op. So can't wait for more info and these games. I already put them both on pre-order. 🤗
Tech Mario (1 month ago)
Well now as we're starting to gain more information about these games that can be great in their own way, I believe now we can all have things to be excited for new mechanics and new regional styles. I feel bad for being disappointed at first. There shall be no more hate for this even if you didn't like pokemon go, Nintendo gained much more profit and fanbases. They can use more profit for better games to follow. It will be the best E3 for a long time!

Now only if they include the pokebank ill have 0 problems. Dont Care about battling wild pokemon cause I run away or repel from those bums as it is

I just wanna fight wild pokes
Siimon (1 month ago)
It will use the online service ONLY for ranking/sending gift... but the Coop part is split screen ONLY. As for PvP... it's confirmed that it won't be like Sun/Moon. I believe the PvP part will be a lot closer to Pokemon GO then anything else. P.S. I love your videos... their really funny!
Brian Dubya (1 month ago)
Whats the point in battling if you have to spend your time pretending to throw pokeballs at your tv over and over to catch pokemon. That's the dumbest facebook mom shit I have ever heard.

1:38 GTS is not the bells & whistles its pretty important
Ya Lai (1 month ago)
gts is great for me on ultra sun. ive bred a couple boxes full of bagon and recieved dragonite, deciueye and charizard for them.
Juice (1 month ago)
The GTS really isn't all that good. Sure, it's been in all games since gen 4; however, in all games, it's also turned out to be incredibly unreliable as time goes on. Full of people asking for mythical pokemon or impossible pokemon when all you want is something uncommon. The only times I've found it useful are for when I'm willing to trade a pokemon for something considerably less rare than it, or when I'm trying to evolve certain pokemon. In these games, there's only going to be pokemon from Kanto, so there's not a lot that evolve through trading - Machoke, Haunter, Kadabra and Graveler - and even then, you'd have to trade *your* Graveler for someone *else's* Graveler, in which case a lot of people would prefer to keep the Graveler they caught and trained up themselves. With such a small pokedex, it won't be very hard to catch 'em all in Let's Go anyway. I don't mean to go all "defend Let's Go with your life" or anything, just want to point out why the GTS wouldn't be so great even if it was in Let's Go. Hopefully it comes back in Gen 8, 'cause that's when it'll help with the pokedex a lot more. :)

Eternal Beauty (1 month ago)
I still need more info on this game as i am quite on the fence between getting it and not. Really leaning towards not getting it but this pulls me back a tad. But only having the original 151 is a huge let down...

I think the message got mixed up because the online won't use the paid Nintendo Online Service, but will have online functionality.
ProfJanks (1 month ago)
Online was the difference between buying or not buying
cloudfair2 (1 month ago)
Actually the inclusion of Nintendo’s online service is definitely a minus for me. (Not saying I don’t want online play I just don’t want to pay for the online service) For the most part I play with an isolationist mentality but I do come out to trade from time to time but that hardly seems worth paying for to me :/

Hey mabie, they didn't get the message mixed. Mabie it will have online fearures, just not using the Nintendo online! HERES HOPEING!

This makes it a bit better for me. I'll see how I feel after the reviews.
Daryl Caruthers (1 month ago)
Btw what core features is this game lacking? Catching, training, and battling are all what attracted me to pokemon and its all in this game so this is a must buy for me. Im just curious what sets it apart from your average pokemon game.
Pixel (1 month ago)
Daryl Caruthers from what we know the only thing that is different is catching other than its a main series pokemon game

Good video Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu WHOA ... Online is Confirmed !! Online Service Battles Trading this from Switch Force other new game come November 16, 2018 that what it show
RossOriginals (1 month ago)
You know, I feel like trading is such an important part of the game that it should be the one thing that you *don't* need a Switch Online subscription for. From Diamond and Pearl up to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon we've been able to trade seamlessly over the internet from anywhere with anyone for free without needing any extra services. Battling online is probably fair to have as part of the Switch Online service, and even maybe the GTS (it'd suck but I could live with it), but trading with friends is SUCH a huge part of the games, it really needs to stay free.

I can only afford smash and another 60$ game. So should i wait for pokemon 2019 and fight online with all gen pokemon or get Lets go and demolish everybody with mewtwo?

Hayden (1 month ago)
This does relieve some stress. I am very scared that leveling is like in Go. If it is somewhat normal I will be much more happy m
Hayden (1 month ago)
I hope so. The real litmus test for me is if the competitive scene (Worlds, etc.) move to Let's Go or if they stay with UltraSunMoon until the 2019 game comes out. If the competitve scene moves over, Let's Go is good enough for me.
Yomoamus nane (1 month ago)
Hayden besides the GO like style of catching, there WILL BE traditional turn based combat plus I'm pretty sure you can level up by battling trainers and maybe they might add a method of gaining exp through catching Pokémon like Pokémon x and y, plus there will be online battles and online trading with other players. It's basically like an HD remake of Pokémon yellow #TeamEevee
Tbh I’m probably going to use two joy-con myself and make the game easier lol
Owen Fairley (1 month ago)
Who else is set on Let’s go Pikachu 😎🔥👌🏼
justinbsi0 (1 month ago)
I really hope that they add an item like the light ball for eevee. Pikachu is WAY more viable with light ball, so I think eevee should get an unique item too. (Light ball only works when being held by pikachu and it doubbles attack and sp. Attack.)

yes! I thought they confirmed it wouldn't have it! there are still many problems obviously, such as no wild Pokemon battles and going back to Kanto, which means no Pokemon past Gen 1, but the games are starting to look somewhat better!

SolgaleoGaming (1 month ago)
I've grown to be more excited for these games. They're gonna be lots of fun while we're waiting for the proper games! I don't mind the go catching mechanic because it'll most likely be gone in gen 8 because it's confirmed the 2019 game is like a regular Pokémon game. I'm hyped for both games and can't wait to see an upgraded kanto, because I was never alive for red and blue. Now online communication is confirmed, these games will be much more immersive and will have more replayability, to keep us engaged for the big gen 8!
rogue trooper (1 month ago)
@Tech Mario agreed, except that Pokemon GO making Nintendo $2 million each day probably doesn't come across as faulty to them ;)
Tech Mario (1 month ago)
SolgaleoGaming I'm just happy that they are finally bringing another kanto remake, and can use these new mechanics to give better insight for what the next real home console game has to offer. And these games will be truly unique even if pokemon go was faulty.

Before the trailer dropped: “Guys we only heard rumours, let’s not judge the game until we actually see it!!!!!” After the trailer dropped: “Guys we’ve only seen ONE trailer, wait till we have more info before judging it as bad!!!!!” Future predictions More info drops: “Guys we still haven’t seen the whole game, it’s not fair to say it’s bad yet!!!!!!!” The entire game leaks: “Guys we know everything about the game but we haven’t actually played it yet, it’s not fair to call it bad if you haven’t played it!!!!!!!” Game finally comes out: “The games not for you, stop calling it bad jeez, what do you mean you’ve paid $60 USD for it and are scared it shows signs of where Pokémon is going in the future, you’re not a real fan!!!!!!!!”

What about those pokemon that need to be trade to evolve?
Tryhardblackguy (1 month ago)
Online Co-op would be cool. Playing the full game in double battles would be great. Most trainers have more than one pokemon. The only reason it looked they were ganging up on the bug catcher in the trailer was because he had only 1 pokemon. If he had more tham one he probably would have taken out 2.

Rav's Reality (1 month ago)
Give eevee an item similar to pikachu's lightball so its viable
Dominique Sunday (1 month ago)
Honestly pikachu is kinda trash even with the light ball. Imo they need to seriously power-up the eviolite and normalise the use of ANY non-fully-evolved pokemon in high-level battles, not just pikachu and eevee.

JDWMGB FOR REAL! No way, was this during an interview???
JDWMGB (1 month ago)
Its been confirmed that you can just press a button instead of using motion controls
Yomoamus nane (1 month ago)
Ian Edwards that's a good question I've been wondering that myself hopefully they reveal more details at E3. I'm pretty sure the pro controller has motion control, maybe you just flick the controller while holding it in a standard grip??? But honestly if I'm doing that while playing for hours and hours my hands will start to cramp up, I'll probably use the single joycon controller so that way my hands don't cramp up, it's a casual game so I'd want to be as comfortable as possible lol
