    Not gonna buy a switch for this, but I could see newer fans of pokemon go who didn't grow up on the earlier versions of Kanto buying this and a switch. Not a terrible marketing strategy at all.

    Okay, before I forgot anything,

    How in TCG?

    Will these sets in related to this game still under SM era? I think it is. Since it isn't a Gen 8 game.

    Well I can't say this didn't exceed my expectations. I'm excited for the more casual things, such as walking with my Pokémon, and putting clothes of them. More of the cutesy stuff, I guess. I'm not all excited about the Pokémon selection, story, or region. Even though Gen I was what built Pokémon into what it is today, it's still far from the best (which is subjective of course, but oh well).

    But I have my concerns, almost completely surrounding the sync and adaptations with/from Pokémon GO. I have so many questions about how this will work. Then there's the whole "Kanto only" clause to porting Pokémon between the games. Whether or not that includes Alolan forms effects whether or not I waste the summer away playing Pokémon GO or not, and could very well effect my decision on when to buy a Switch (and this game, by extension).

    There's also this that is a tell-tale sign that this is a spin-off game, and isn't a part of Gen VIII:
    By that extension it's not Generation VII or VIII, it's just it's own thing. A completely unique spin-off game that has no relationships to any of the core games. Honestly, if they continued to make remakes like this I wouldn't be mad. But this also means this game isn't going to take over the meta. Ever. Meaning USUM still rules that for another year, until it's finally passed on to whatever awaits us in 2019.
    This is how they'll have time to bring in Unova and Kanto sets before the Generation officially ends. Then they'll have some sort of Legendary Treasures-esque set and we'll move on to Generation VIII.

    As for someone who played pokemon since the beginning, I am very excited to use my kanto team again but with updated graphics and gameplay. Negative comments will not change my mind

    Okay. How about the Physical-Special split?

    So we will experience "All Grass atks are Special, All Normal moves are Physical" kind of thing?

    Nothing but meh tbh. Visually it's a step in the right direction but that's it, underwhelmed would be an understatement.

    The battling system they showed looks unchanged, and that's a good thing. The running around to catch thing is imo the greatest gameplay change and one they should implement in the main series moving forward.

    Individual opinions on the creatures or the region may bring it down for you, but I really don't see why. This looks really neat, however you slice it. It's not a "main series" game and yet it has the locations and gameplay of one. The cutesy dress up stuff skews young but that's fine.

    Still excited for the main series, but this looks fresh enough. Hyped.

    This looks so dumb but so freaking amazing at the same time. People who still play Pokemon Go will have an advantage though. I play Pokemon Go so I have a ton of overpowered Pokemon I could potentially bring in.

    I don't think you need to worry about the Physical/Special split. HGSS didn't go back to that system, so why would these games?

    I was afraid this was going to be a core game, but now that we know it isn't, I'm relieved. The idea of Go being heavily integrated into the mainline series was just... dumbfounding, to say the least.

    As someone who has never had a desire to play Pokemon GO, these do nothing for me. However, there are plenty of interesting things in these games, and I think a lot of other people will enjoy them quite a lot. As successful as GO was, I think it was smart to make games like these.

    "The Pokemon Company also announced they are working on more core series games that will release for the Switch in 2019!" If that's what it sounds like, thank goodness! =D 2018 seemed too early for Gen 8 or even Gen 4 remakes, so the timing of everything is making more sense now. If assumptions are correct, I can patiently wait a year and hope others enjoy these games in the meantime.

    I still don't fully get that the 2DS XL was recent, yet they are moving to the switch with the games.

    I had a feeling these would be spin-offs, but there are still folks saying it's a mainline game.

    That said, I might pick these up if there's some sort of connectivity with Gen 7/8 but I highly doubt something like that will happen.
