so ive played about 3 hours or 4 i think.
graphics: they went for a cell shaded look. i put my oled on HDR color mode and things pop nicely. the graphics are much better in person than watching youtube. very pretty in person. albiet a bit simple looking.
difficulty: ok...whoever said this was casual trash is wrong. catching pokemon is even harder now than in the real games. even weak pokemon dont like to get caught and many jump around making motion control throwing hard. not to mention the battles are just as strategic or maybe more. to me this game feels a bit tougher and more rewarding than the original on the gameboy.
con: so far the biggest "issue" is you cant fight random people online. only friends.oh wait... you can fight with anyone BUT they have to know the special code you make up in order to link. so i suppose if you find a community of people who want to play you can exchange the code and fight them. i would have liked a just basic random person finder though.
i like how catching shiny pokemon works or getting high IV pokemon. you have to chain catch pokemon. and honestly some of the pokemon as super hard to catch. so there a is much depth in this game.
what are your thoughts?
