I also have Let's Go Eevee, and I've been enjoying it.

It's basically Pokémon Yellow version, but... upgraded. I was worried it would be too easy, but's not really any easier or harder than past games. (I've been keeping my team a bit underleveled and it's decently challenging at times.) The catching system is different, and aiming/throwing is really finicky with the joycon, (In handheld mode it's much better.) but I really like not having to worry about keeping moves like false swipe and sleep powder around for the sole purpose of weakening wild Pokémon enough to capture. And the new box system is great! I normally just use a team of six, but since I can swap out my party whenever I want without going to a Pokémon center, I wound up with around two dozen Pokémon that I use regularly.

On the downside, there does not appear to be much to do once you beat the elite four, but there is a bit more than in the original Yellow. Master trainers, rematches against gym leaders, and a few small events here and there.

I picked up Let's Go Pikachu!, myself. It's fun, it's cute, and it feels like a little bit of a laid back game despite lack of held items and battles being a tad challenging because of the battle system having a bit taken out of it. If you like Pokemon GO, however, it's probably something you'd enjoy. Or if you're a huge nostalgic fan..

The Pokeball Plus is pretty nice with GO, as well, as putting a Pokemon inside has them automatically spin stops for you and can (attempt to) catch nearby Pokemon with the press of a button. The Pokemon you put in gets EXP for it when returned to Let's Go.

I actually haven't finished Let's Go, though... I somewhat dropped it for other Switch titles.

I just want my next Pokemon gen Switch game, man.

Honestly, as soon as I discovered you couldn't breed Pokémon, I was craving Generation 8 and lost almost all motivation to continue playing Let's Go.

Goodness I agree wholeheartedly. I knew it was generally a nicer-looking, GO-related Pokemon Yellow remake but my motivation to play has been 0 since so much of it was painfully watered down. I'd have much rather purchased the originally Yellow from the eShop. But at least I enjoy the Pokeball Plus... I guess. The game is amusing and cute but I just would rather play most other things right now.

The first two generation 8 games have been revealed!

They have revealed the game names, starter Pokémon and the region. The release date, unsurprisingly, is "late 2019".

I am unusually hyped for these games, I think they have a lot of potential! It's nice to see gyms make a return, too.

I'm happy to see you hype about this game, haha! I'll be living vicariously through other people and online content; I never did end up finishing Sun and decided that that would be my "last" new Pokémon title, but that doesn't change the fact for me I enjoy seeing what they come up with.

My first impression of the starters was that they weirdly look like hybrids of already-existent Pokémon, but I like them. The little grass monkey and the sadpole are particularly endearing to me (sorry, bunny -- never been a fan of more "anthro" looking mons).

The graphics are looking especially beautiful. Seeing all that makes me feel like that nostalgic "technology is amazing!" guy in the starting town of every game. How far the games have come!

I am SO pumped for this new gen. My gut's telling me that they learned what didn't work well in Sun/Moon and are gonna apply that here. Or at least, I'm really, really hoping that that's gonna be the case. The game looks beautiful and Sobble is my life and I'm just... really excited for it. Only disappointing bit so far is that they didn't show any Pokemon following the trainer, even though we know from Let's Go that the Switch is 100% capable of handling that. Who knows, there's still time.

This is pretty much how I feel about generation 8. I was expecting the trials to be a one-off anyway, but finally seeing the gyms gave me that extra bit of hope the new games would be very different to the Sun and Moon games.

I wonder if they'll add customizable trainers this time. I am also interested to see what the starter evolutions look like, but I'm not sure if that will be revealed any time soon.

The internet is stinking out over the water starter! sadboi hours whos upp

I usually go with the fire type, and I do like this bunny. Will it become another fire-fighting, I wonder. The monkey is my second favourite, only because I am partial to the Chimchar-Monferno-Infernape line from Diamond and Pearl, which was the last game I owned and played.

Can't wait to see the rest of the Pokemon!

This is one of those games that’s really pushing me to buy a Switch. It looks promising so far! My friend and I were discussing the logos, and the seemingly European/UK themed region. We’re hoping that those wolves on the logos hint at some cool new wolf-legendaries.

What do you guys think of the new Pokes?

Looks like the Legendaries are woofs!

Drednaw is cool. Corvinight looks cool, but the name and the look remind me of Meta Night!
