My thoughts on the Pokemon Let's Go Games.

17 March 2019 - 11:16 AM

I recently beat Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and I say it's like Corrin in Fire Emblem Fates Revelations. Middle road.


First of all, since this was a remake of Gen 1's Yellow I was expecting nothing different. But after I got Eevee I started my adventure, expecting nothing special just route 1 filled with Pidgey and Rattata, but then something caught my attention: I found a Bellsprout. I thought "I shouldn't get a Bellsprout this early!" So I checked Serebii.net and discovered all the pokemon locations had been changed, well most anyway. I kinda thought the game was being nice to me, giving me a Grass-type early considering Brock's Gym uses rock types. I played through the game as normal, catching a few new pokemon for my team, battling, etc.


During my visit to Cerulean Gym I noticed there were three bikini girls, as opposed to just a female camper and male swimmer. I battled each of them and noticed something odd yet familiar about the names they were given. The first one was Lily, the second Violet and the third Daisy. I'm kinda glad Gamefreak learned their lesson from Yellow as this is how you make a reference from the anime correctly.


Another unique mechanic I noticed is there are no HM's but your partner knows HM-esque moves, and they're not part of your partners moveset, meaning you can use them freely. This was a change I liked. What I didn't like were requirements for certain gyms, the movesets being re-tweaked (Though having all three Legendary Birds use Sky Attack is nice), and needing a Nintendo membership just to trade.


I remember fondly that after beating Erika, I could access the Power Plant, and acquire Zapdos, which was a key member of my team.


Speaking of, My team at game's end was Eevee, Nidoking, Blastoise, and the three Legendary Birds. Zapdos had amazing stats, Articuno and Moltres only had Great stats.


So while Pokemon Let's go had things I liked there were things I didn't. So I gave my thoughts on this game, what are yours? 

Pokemon Let's Go Johto Edition

15 March 2019 - 08:47 AM

I managed to beat Pokemon Let's Go Eevee. But that got me thinking, the pokemon you can transfer to from Pokemon go is for lack of a better word... Limited. I mean just Kanto pokemon?


So, why not have other Let's Go Editions of the other pokemon games? But how would that work? I mean sure we could have Pokemon Let's Go Marill version or Pokemon Let's Go Togepi version? But would that work?


Also, how can we get the Johto starters in one playthrough? I mean Pokemon Crystal only let's you pick one starter, and how would Silver's team work?


Though it would be nice to see Whitney actually crying instead of just having text read to us about it.


Also, have a mix of all Johto games in this, and have the kimono dancers be based on their anime counterparts.


And this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce Megas of Meganium, Typhlosion and Feraligatr.


What do you guys think?

Best Pokemon Anime So Far

14 March 2019 - 04:48 PM

Well A new set of games means a new anime will be on the rise, but before we move forward let's take a look back and determine which of the anime series was best overall. For Me it was Black and White because Iris was best pokegirl in my opinion. What are yours?


Edit: Also, I think, in my opinion, 4kids should have held on to Pokemon until the end of Season 9, but that's just me.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield Anime

Looks like Ash's school days in Alola will soon be over as a new region has made itself known. Ash will have new friends, new enemies, and new gyms.


Granted this is a placeholder for the anime when it eventually comes out. But in my and most fans opinions this should be better than school Ash.

Miles Edgeworth or Apollo Justice Anime

22 February 2019 - 08:39 AM

With the success of both Ace Attorney anime seasons, I figure why not have Capcom keep the train going?


Something interesting I found: Sam Regal, Phoenix Write Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice, is Furio Tigre in Season 2.


Anyway... I was thinking, why not have anime based on the Investigations games, or Apollo Justice?


In the case of the former, the ators who played Edgeworth, Gumshoe and others from the last two games could reprise their roles. And the anime can be split into two arcs. Or maybe one season can be based on Investigations while the other on Investigations 2, and follow the order of both games and show us in anime form how the Logic System and Logic Chess can be adapted into anime form.


In the case of the latter, Sam Regal would reprise his role as Phoenix and utilize the Jurist system from the start, showcasing the case that destroyed his career, then follow up with an aftermath episode, then Apollo's first trial and follow a pattern of sorts, where it all comes together in the final few episodes. And if Travis Willingham isn't to busy with Disney, he can be Kristoff Gavin.


Anyway, what do you guys think?
