    So, the Pokemon go club wish to remain untainted so a new thread is born.

    Who else is getting this? Who is going with pikachu (me) or eevee?

    Anyone know if we need to trade for Genger et al?

    Anyway Pokemon switch \o/

    well, i played it for half hour this morning.

    It is clearly a pokemon game, i found myself doing laps on the first patch of grass waiting for a battle to start(a pokemon tradition for me where i get my starter to level 10 in first patch of grass and first evolution by the time i get to the first town), before remembering that there are no random battles (boo)

    I quite like the catch stuff for XP as it has meant i am going to start filling my pokedex pretty quickly and you can change up your team on the fly.

    The inclusion of larger and tiny pokemon (as well as effects in world to show you what type) is decent as i can be a bit pickier in which pokemon i target.

    Motion controls suck when on public transport!, hope nintendo realise this and patch it out of portable, also my left joycon analogue stick is drifting upwards which is being a pain.

    There's no way they are going to patch out the motion controls. Nintendo's attitude to them is absolutely twattish.

    But, yeah, I ordered it for the girl for Xmas but it was delivered and opened this morning apparently, so Christmas seems to have come early.

    Ordered picachu one for my daughter for Christmas too. Do adults actually play them? I was already too old when the first one came out here so missed the boat. The seem perfect for kids though. Are they any good?

    Yeah same and have the same questions. As long as there is more to it then the phone game thing!

    It's got the girls seal of approval! She's just squealed for the last hour or so about how cute everything is.

    And yeah, it's OG Pokémon with a 3D update. The lack of voice acting is now super jarring, though.

    Maybe make her a brew or go to the shop for some bread or other chores of some description. Failing that just threaten to call childline.

    Maybe get on with playing Fallout, Addy.

    It is Pokemon yellow, the only difference seems to be that random Pokemon battles have been replaced with a capturing mechanic.

    I am loving it. In the 10 games thread I mentioned how I had become more of a comfort gamer replaying old titles. This suits me to a tee.

    It’s like a comfy blanket, I have very quickly fallen into my previous Pokemon rhythmn and have pretty much exactly the same team as I had playing Pokemon yellow all those years ago.

    4 days playing and for me personally its GoTY.

    Pure nostalgia. Everything I wanted from the 1st Pokemon on the console.

    Elite 4 beaten with the same 6 Pokemon I had since Cerulean.

    152/153 Pokemon caught. Kanto Dex complete.

    Just the 150 or so Master Trainers left, oh and Red, Green & Blue.

    Not forgetting my Shiny Bellsprout from Viridian Forest.

    @Matt36 Did you fill your Pokedex from the game or did you import some from Pokémon Go? I have been trying to collect every Pokémon and their evolutions in Go, but I am sorely tempted to break up the band to fill my Pokedex in Let’s Go.

    @Saul_Iscariot I caught and traded with friends. I moved 50 over from POGO to see how it worked but kept them in the park until the dex was complete.

    I can help where needed with trades.

    I caught a shiny Bellsprout in Viridian Forest right at the start, Victreebel is still in my team now.

    I also recently caught a shiny Pidgey after chain catching. It won't replace my Pidgeot in my team, Pidgeot has had a lot of candy used on it, but nice to have.
