This is insulting to even the new players. Pokémon is an easy game anyways. If you hand hold throughout the game they'll just get bored midway.

I just don’t understand how this game is alienating classic players. It’s a different experience. I’ve been playing Pokémon since the beginning, and I’m looking forward to trying something different. Just because one game in a 20 year franchise isn’t specifically marketed towards you doesn’t mean you should quit enjoying the franchise.

2020: The first Pokemon game with auto-fight is released, players don't have to battle manually anymore 2023: New Pokemon games now have auto-pilot, player don't have to walk themselves anymore 2026: No player input is required anymore, "playing" the game is more like watching a playtrough on Youtube 2030: No Pokemon games will be released anymore, Nintendo finds it is too diffecult for fans to purchase the games

I pre-ordered Let's Go Pikachu soon after it was announced, so I didn't really know about all the hand holding at the time. With each new trailer I get more and more disappointed because they're over-simplifying it for the "casual audience" that may not even want this game. I myself started out on Pokemon Black and I had no clue what I was doing. I was really confused with it and I got frustrated at times, but that was the best part. The first game I beat was Pokemon Y, but I was still a noob with Pokemon. With each Pokemon game I got, I learned more about how to beat the gyms and catch Pokemon to make an awesome team. I really liked Y and the Kalos region, but looking back, I see why people are saying it was too easy. I was also very annoyed with all of the excruciatingly long cutscenes in Sun and Moon and USUM. I've gotten the older games like Red and Blue just to see how difficult they are, and it really isn't that bad once you know what you're doing. And like this video says, kids these days have YouTube and different walkthrough websites that they can go to if they ever have trouble. Over-simplification can annoy not only veteran players but even some relatively new players as well. I know I would have been very frustrated with the hand holding once I knew what to do. Let's just hope there's difficulty settings or something like that. I might enjoy it more.

I don’t understand why they’re doing this to the game. The fact that people have to now differentiate between Let’s Go and a “hardcore Pokémon game” which is an oxymoron in itself, shows they’ve failed with Let’s Go. Pokémon has ALWAYS BEEN A GAME FOR KIDS. Of course millions of adults enjoy the games, including myself, but the games have ALWAYS been marketed toward kids. Why do they have to make a game like this, and not just a normal Pokémon game? Normal Pokémon games are already for kids. What demographic are they trying to pick up here that a regular Pokémon game can’t? 5 year olds? Shit, I played Yellow and Crystal when I was 5. 3 year olds??? Can they even use a switch??? Yeah it’s easy to say “the Pokémon Go community” but you’re telling me that people who are old enough to own smartphones and walk around town catching Pokémon can’t understand the mechanics of a regular 3ds Pokémon game?

why cant they just make the gym requirements a beginner setting that you can turn off if you aren't completely new to pokemon? lol how hard is something like that

This is fine. Counterproductive to my play style, but fine. This means no Nuzlocke, though...
Ninja amv maker (1 month ago)
Now if new players expect this kind of easy game then the next games will be just as easy, cause if they amp it up, then newcomers to let’s go will struggle without hand holding
Sean Rossell (1 month ago)
they should have an option where you can choose the level of difficulty and assistance you want or need in the game instead of restricting certain people

What i dont get is pokemongo already has type advantages and weaknesses Hell it even has weather effects that change these things up too I play pokemongo and our local group discusses ivs and best pokemon for certain raid battles Pokemongo players dont need this Its a bit insulting to them imo Kids dont need this either i mean we all figured out R/B/Y as children w/o these restrictions Kids are smart enough to figure it out Nintendo needs to give them more credit

I haven’t been following Pokémon lately, I felt like Ultra Sun & Moon was a cheap cash grab, but this is to much. Pokémon is doing another generation reset, and I will not be staying in Pokémon for this gen. I’m to old for Pokémon now.

They could make a hardcore mode or heck even nuzlocke mode unlikely for nuzlocke but I think hardcore would be a good twist especially like not so much hand holding and maybe you could skip tutorials GOD
AJA (1 month ago)
Unless there's some unannounced factor of the game that can redeem the entire experience, these changes towards a more casual Pokemon kind of ruin the game for me. As of right now I know I won't be paying $60 for this game.
MrDeadlyBootz (1 month ago)
I'm sorry but we saw this coming from the day this game was revealed. You youtubers trying to be all super open to this just draws out this stupidity unnecessarily. This game needs to flop if you want to get back REAL Pokémon games. Even if the one next year's is supposed to the more "core" game this train of thought needs to be nipped in the bud. They think we're morons.
godonlyknows13 (1 month ago)
I'm starting to get the impression that this game is nothing but a cheap attempt at distracting people from the fact that pokemon go is utter trash and literally the only reason anyone ever played is b/c its pokemon... which is the same reason gamefreak and nintendo have been able to just coast along for so long and not put out an ACTUALLY GREAT GAME in years.

This game just keeps getting worse no wild battles Certain requirements for gym battles this will be the third Pokemon game in a row I will pass on

Why don't they just make all the handholding crap optional? Kinda like "Kids Mode" in the old school Spiderman games.

Freezehelmet (1 month ago)
Im not getting it, i hate how i have to purposefully restrict myself from doing certa8n things just to have fun, and its also the reason i have to wait another year for one that i have a chance of liking, just because they made pokemon go. Glad to see i cant escape the cancer that is pokemon go anymore, i want a game that actually challenges me. Nintendo, kf youre listening, remove the requirements and just put a sign or something outside the gyms saying what is reccomended instead of forcing others to adapt based on it. I also think its a bit ironic that the gen 1 remake OVER TEN YEARS AGO and was om the gameboy advance is more interesting to me and has over three times more pokemon than the game that was supposed to be revolutionary for the franchise that is on the nintendo switch, giving them more power that ever to do nearly anything they wanted to do with the series. Im just hoping that in the next game, they actually listen to what hardcore fans actually want, and give us something new or refreshing, instead of this steaming pile of horse crap.

Well I understand doing it on the first gym, because it is supposed to teach you weaknesses, and what lesson will you learn if you don't use weaknesses to your advantage.

I actually like some of these changes and rules to be honest. It makes the game more challenging. It seems like they want this game to be around like Skyrim, GTA, and Fallout. They dont want a pokemon game that you can run through in 10 hours and be done with. On the other hand though, some changes forces you to play one dimensional though.

Goosey Q. (1 month ago)
I think we shouldn’t care if they make the game easier for new people. Veterans already know how the game would be. We know who the gym leaders would be and we know the level caps and stuff. This is for new players. If the older players want to “challenge” themselves then if anything this makes it more challenging for veterans because it allows us to think of ways to make it harder for us. Ex. If there’s a Pokémon requirement, that Pokémon can be your weakest Pokémon without the beneficial move. If there’s a level requirement, that can be a Pokémon that only has 1 move. It may make it easier for new players but it also makes it harder for older players to make it harder for them to challenge themselves and that’s what can make the game fun for everyone.

I’d actually enjoy it if it said that to fight Sabrina you need to have a ghost type cause thats how it was in the anime
Jack of Trades (1 month ago)
The thing is, how much is this going to actually affect hardcore players. Theyre already going to be using supereffective and powerhoused pokemon because they know exactly what to do. However the newer age of children and people they want instant gratification and don’t WANT to have to discover supereffectiveness for themselves. They want it streamlined more

You never know, maybe they could finally split Pokémon between children and then the adults who grew up with it. I would much prefer they do a children's one like this then give the rest of us a hardcore in depth game

Christian Henriquez (1 month ago)
I don’t see how hard pokemon is though.. I think they should just add difficulty levels just for it to be easier for starters and a challenge to those who have been there since red, blue, yellow
beez1717 (1 month ago)
Stop confusing accessible with easy Nintendo! We don't want you to make things so easy that the game forces you to win. We want you to make it easier for first time Pokemon players to understand how the game works so it doesn't feel so daunting that it scares them away! We want you to add in more content aimed at the casual market as an addition. We want you to make it easier for players to get into Pokemon so the fanbase expands. As it stands, the let's go Pokemon games are forcing you into situations you'd have a hard time losing in with the gym requirements, and making it trivial to get perfect stats for your Pokemon with the new candy system. They made catching Pokemon trivial so it is super easy to obtain Pokemon you'll win with. No game in my opinion should be going out of it's way to make you WIN. No game should be making it so you have to make a concerted effort in order to lose. Accessible does not equal making things easy and dumbing things down. Accessible is making the game easier to grasp and less scary to novice players so they are willing to accept the challenges in the game. Many novice players aren't afraid of challenges in a game and may want it. Many times novice players are afraid the game might be too complicated and take too much effort to grasp, and it scares them away. As a gamer, I am all for lowering the bar to start playing video games. I believe that systems like the NES and SNES, and the Atari 2600 happened to have games that were easy to grasp and so people weren't afraid to give games a try. Perhaps what Pokemon needs is a way to make the game easier to grasp instead of making the difficulty extremely easy.

People who settle are so annoying because man this is way less ambitious than something like Coliseum. I know there’s another next year but that just makes this even more looking like a cash grab
FurProgrammer (1 month ago)
For the people saying that it's no big deal: This push feels to forced like a tutorial that went into overdrive. It also may make the game more linear at the beginning as it limits what we want to do even more. NOTE THIS IS MY OPINION AND YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO YOURS. pls also give your thoughts.

They just need different difficulty settings. Allow players to choose between hints and "special requirements" or to simply disable them for experienced players. Cmon Nintendo.. make it fun for everyone. They outta know by now not all pokemon fans are 10 year olds xD
Michael Evan (1 month ago)
They should have “Beginner” and “Expert” modes so GO players can easily breeze through Beginner and vets of the core games can just take it like how it should be on Expert

The pokemon franchise is starting to get ruined. This is way too easy, and they’re adding too many bad mechanics, like the go catching. Pokemon had the perfect formula, but after gen 5, it’s changed too much. Nintendo should try to appeal to a larger audience, not just 5 year olds.

I personally think that if they’re gonna add an easier game style that they should have two modes that include one for a novice and one for a experienced player
Tyler Dickerson (1 month ago)
I'm gonna skip this one, it feels like a cheap and lazy way to move pokemon to the switch. Also, I didn't like playing pokemon go as someone who didn't live in a city where there would be pokemon to catch. I'll see what they offer next year, but if it is not drastically better then this I'll probably be looking at other yearly franchises

Let's go is worth getting for me simply because of the possibility of transferring Pokemon from go to let's go and then from let's go to gen 8. It made me play Pokemon go again lol

rhapsody (1 month ago)
One of my most vivid memories as a little kid was when I was around 3 or 4 and I was playing Pokémon Ruby. I didn’t know how to catch Pokémon granted but I understood how types worked and the basics of the game. I remember my level 70 Swampert while I was trying to beat the elite 4. I was quite a young kid at the time and Ruby had not much hand holding which was fine with me. If I was 4 and was able to figure out how to play Pokémon which is not a complicated game at all than Nintendo shouldn’t have to dumb down there gameplay just to be attractive younger kids to play their games. And kids aren’t as stupid as they think. I figured the game out why couldn’t another little kid figure it out too?

Joey Harbert (1 month ago)
I just feel like at every turn there is more and more handholding revealed. If we get to the point where it's so easy you can finish the came in an hour, it no longer feels worth the money, you know? I think the difficulty setting is a great way to allow people to customize their gameplay and make it the game accessible to the new players without alienating the old. I mean, let's be honest here, I've seen 6 and 7 year olds play fortnite better than I can, and I'm 25. I don't think they're going to struggle with typing. And making it easier for the 40+ y/o Go players seems a little unrealistic, in my opinion. I just don't see those players picking up a switch.

Ruairi Blake (1 month ago)
I don't get why people keep saying "but what about the hardcore fans?!" This clearly isn't for them, it very clearly never was. It's to try and convert Go players to the console games. Particularly those who maybe stopped playing as teens because they thought it wasn't cool and since haven't got back into it because there's too much accretion after so many years. If you think this is meant for long time fans who never stopped playing and those that do nuzlocke runs, maybe calm down and wait for the 2019 game

I think this whole “dumbing down a game for the sake of kids” is stupid, for lack of a better word. They’re assuming that today’s kids are dumber than the kids of the 90’s or early 2000’s. It’s insane. When red and blue came out, kids went crazy over it. Because it offered challenge and a game that nobody was used to. In grade school it was satisfying to have been the only one of your friend group to have beaten the elite four, caught mewtwo, etc. With these newer games (pretty much anything past 5th gen) i just don’t feel the challenge anymore. And I know it isn’t because I’m practically an adult and have gotten better or something, because I can go back and play the older gens and get my ass beat. I remember beating moon and feeling as if I’d wasted my time. Sure, the visuals were awesome, Pokémon were well designed, but I can’t really say any of that matters if I don’t remember even breaking a sweat or having to use even two of my brain cells to play it. I don’t know, I’m rambling.
Yannick (1 month ago)
I personally want to see a game which has a nice and good story for casual players and then a update policy for hardcore multiplayer pokemon battles (like patches). Second i want to see special trainers have iv trained pokemon and more complex strategies, for example more switching, hazards and use of weather abilities in a different difficulty level.

Wow but a specific type doesnt mean it has an attack of this type... And inevery gym there was at least one person who told you something about type advantages in this specific arena

2 words; Difficulty Settings............ Easy, Medium and hard settings have been in games since probably before the early 90s why should pokemon be any different. Easy would be; Dumb AI and ridiculous type requirements for gyms. Medium would be: Intelligent AI for battles, No requirements for gyms. and hard would be; same as Medium but trainers have extra pokemon and higher leveled pokemon. It's not difficult to be inclusive Nintendo.

Pokémon is one of the easiest games to figure out. It’s a rock paper scissor type game. And it’s a kids game. I’m tired of the reason being “to help new players” cuz it’s not. Each gym has that guy in front to tell you what to do. And gym requirements only force you to not to stick with your main cast of Pokémon unless all 6 hit all requirements. They fixed the first gym with Charmander issue by giving him metal claw early. Was it metal claw? Idk, point is they gave him a move to beat rock Pokémon. I just used a nidoran boy with double kick cuz Nidoking is awesome. I think this is all a marketing ploy to try and make their dumb Pokémon go ideas take off by giving them new light. It’s another remake of the first game so it’s just made to make money. Judging by Nintendo’s actions, they are more interested in money than redefining video games with a blow our minds game
