Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee Vermillion City Trailer

Recommended Posts

New trailer showing off a few locales, part of the Lt. Surge gym battle sequence and a "chance meeting" with Team Rocket.

 

Oh yeah, and mega evolutions are a thing in this game, too!

Kinda getting tired of all these reboots, in games and movies. If I really wanted to visit Vermilion again then I'd play Red or Crystal.  I've been there like 5 times in 5 different games from 5 different generations.

... Quoting so everyone else has to see this image again and can confirm that they are not, in fact, hallucinating.

 

For heck's sake, legions of six-year-olds solved this puzzle two decades ago. This is so far beyond hinting or hand-holding.

To be fair, Lt. Surge's puzzle was toss since once you found the first button, you had to guess which can had the second button and if you guess wrong you need to find the first button again. It wasn't hard, but definitely annoying. 

 

Like, I'd rather take a nothing puzzle than a game of chance. Ideally they'd add a sparkle or something subtle to determine which cans have buttons, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I was gonna post this but how many times have we been to Kanto now? This one here makes the fourth time.

 

As much I like Kanto, like the next guy what's shown here is no different the last 3 times we've been here. That's why I didn't post.

 

Cool to see vermilion city and surge in HD but that's about it.

 

And oh yeah there was Mega evolution, welp we know what universe this takes place in Pokemon.

Also, as pointed out elsewhere, this trailer and related information soft confirm held items and abilities will be absent. Specifically:

  • Mega evolutions require the key item be in your bag; no equipping makes sense if held items are gone. 
  • Charizard Y does not cause drought when summoned; abilities are probably gone. 

 

Anyway, it's an easily missed piece of info from yesterday.

"use your brain"
you can't use your brain with the surge cans cause it doesn't even work the way it's described

there's an always present chance that the second can is always the top left, so it's literally a guessing game
even sillier in yellow

Okay, I guess Let's Go was compensating for what was previously bad design. I honestly didn't have that much trouble with the Surge cans myself, but they were definitely worse designed than I remembered. Then again, I guess that was gen 1 in a nutshell, and to some extent, gen 2.
