I hated Neogaf whenever there was a sniff of a direct. Resetera is probably the same.

Plus all the games they shat on, before they even played them, that happened to be really strawberry floating good. A Link Between Worlds, 3D World, strawberry floating Tropical Freeze.

Wankers.


Yeah I find it’s fun to go on there and have a chuckle when browsing some of the threads. Thankfully I rarely go on Resetera, only when a ‘leak’ has been made so I can see how desperate the posts become.

I really hope that Gen 8 is similar to Let's Go and that we get Let's Go, Johto next year. Let's Go, Pikachu and the mobile game have really revived my passion for Pokémon :wub:


I’m really hoping we get a Let’s Go Johto game next year as well, loved LG Pikachu/Eevee.

Saying that while I hope they incorporate some elements of the Let’s Go series (Pokémon appearing in the overworld, optional catching mechanics similar to Let’s Go, having Pokémon follow the player) into the gen 8 games I hope it’ll be mainly like the previous games, again not that the Let’s Go games we’re bad at all!

One area I’m really interested in is which graphical direction they opt for, will it be similar to Let’s Go? Or does the game ‘Town’ potentially show us more of what the gen 8 games could look like?

This is my big hope for the coming year. I would love to finally take part in Master Mario Maker. :wub:

Although my main excitement is for the new Animal Crossing, I think Mario Maker 2 would be my second most-desired title for Switch. It would be so cool to see more folk taking part in Cheeky Devlin's Are You A Master Mario Maker? events :D .

Only thing I want from Let's Go is Pokémon in the overworked and Pokémon following (which has been in previous games, TBF) While I enjoyed Let's Go, it really was a babies first Pokemon

Yeah it was definitely on the easier side (except Mewtwo, who I went in wholly unprepared for as it turned out when it one shotted my entire team, Mega Gyarados to the rescue), I quite liked th catching mechanics as well which is why if they do feature, they should be optional.

Catching mechanics were fine apart from the shitty capture rates. I hope they still do away with wild Pokemon battles in the new games.

Nah, I think you need some way of weakening the wild pokemon outside of just spamming them with balls, it just doesn't make any sense :shifty:

Also get rid of the stupid catching minigame after crippling legendaries! They can't faint but then still break out of 17 ultra balls :x

The berry system works fine for weakening I think, but they could definitely expand on it a bit.

Pokemon Let's Go has the best gameplay mechanics of any Pokemon. I would bring back held items but that's about it.

I hope they don't I strawberry floating hate spending ages trying to catch a Pokémon for it to run and you get SWEET strawberry float ALL for it. At least in the old games you fight a wild Mon and knock the strawberry floater out you get XP.

Honestly, if let's go is the route they go with Pokémon I think I'll be out. Yeah, one person means gooseberry fool, but I'd be so disappointed.

Did the berry effect wear off if the pokemon broke out of the next ball you threw? The ring colour would change to an easier colour when I used a berry but go back to whatever it was if the pokemon escaped, and I don't think it ever really explained if that was what was happening.

Definitely think it'd be nice to have pro controller support/the ability to disable motion controls in the next Let's Go, too.

Yeah, everytime a 'Mon breaks out you have to reuse a berry.

The only thing I want from Let's Go is Pokemon being visible in the wild. I want the rest to be traditional, I want to use my Pro controller too. Otherwise I'm out.

Must admit, the monster adventure in keenest on at the moment is Yo-Kai Watch 4. One simple reason for this: real-time battles.

I think Gen. 8 might change less than people expect, and be happy to use the technology increase to skimp on evolution elsewhere. I hope I’m wrong.

(Also: no more Megas please.)

To be honest, what ever the gen 8 games end up being like there’s a 99.9% chance I’ll be there on day one. It’d have to be something truly terrible to keep me away from a new Pokémon game on launch day.

Town is going to be an eShop only game. And an interesting one at that, but I can't imagine it has too much in the way of resources allocated to it so I wouldn't expect it offer clues to how Pokemon will look.

I'd say it'll probably look fairly different to Let's Go, which I think might become its own series because of how popular it was, and so they'd need to make the mainline games and Let's Go look distinct from each other. Also while the main pokemon games haven't necessarily always pushed their hardware graphically, each new game in a gen has illustrated a leap in graphical quality/ambition over previous similar titles.

I didn’t realise Town was an eShop only game, I still guess if it does launch in 2019 it’ll be in the summer, certainly before Pokémon later in the year so they don’t stand even a remote chance of competing against each other.
