Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee Review

Saiba Khan

Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee are the remastered versions of one of the most beloved adventures of the series. While some components fans have come to discover are missing like held items, breeding, and abilities. The game has a proper amount of depth. It is focused at a younger audience that has never experienced a Pokemon RPG.  Both video games may not have the similar lasting appeal like the previous titles.  Although re-exploring Kanto and capturing some most iconic creatures of the series makes the journey impressive.

Story lines

Both games take you back to Kanto, the beautiful homeland of Pokémon Blue, Red, and Yellow. Structurally, the game hasn’t much modified, but the last 8bit region has realized in vibrant detail. Once again visiting the most memorable locations of the series, including Saffron City and Viridian Forest on the massive screen is a beautiful joy. Areas of the series that were made up of simple shapes and lines are now detailed cities and colourful jungles. All types of cute monsters are freely-roaming the wild environment, offering a unique personality to the region. The catchy soundtrack also has been modified and, now the sounds is better compared to last games.

Gameplay

Players who are familiar with the originals games or their remakes should have no problem exploring the world they are in a while playing the game. Once you have jumped into the world, the game introduces you to your partner Pokémon. It aims to embark on an adventure to gather Gym Badges. Also, take down the Elite Four and defeat the Team Rocket. You’ll discover some surprises while playing the game such as the design of the region and progression system through it is nearly identical to the main entries. Luckily, the game sheds some of Red, Yellow, and Blue’s old designs.

The game does a perfect job at commanding or guiding you through the vast environment and the storyline. After selected your way through Rock Tunnel in the original games, you had a little direction through locations. Visit places like Celadon, Lavender, Saffron, etc. You could participate in Gym battles and events which are out of orders.

What’s different

Most fundamental changes of the game are how you capture Pokémon. Instead of random encounters and wild battles like the previous games, it adopts catching mechanics of Pokémon Go. Pokémon explores the environment in real-time, and you need to walk into one to catch it. Rather than fighting to take down its health, you just need to throw your Poke Ball at it. The accuracy and timing of your throw enhance the chances of a successful catch. The trading system of the game is also limited. You can trade and battle locally and online with buddies.

It is difficult to come back to the game after the credits roll without fighting mechanics fans are accustomed to and the limited trading system. While there are specific reasons to re-navigate Kanto once again, players have completed, like accomplishing the Pokedex and grinding for Pokémon with accurate stats. Despite these concessions, the games are brilliantly reimagining of the origins of the series. It comes with lots of smart modifications and improvements on the primary Red, Blue, and Yellow video games. The series’ fans might be let it down due to lack of features they’re expecting, but Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! And Let’s Go, Eevee takes the Pokemon formula to new exciting way.
