Pokemon Let’s go

So hi guys! I am not dead haha. The curse of being a retail worker has caught up with me and with Black Friday this week I have been forced to focus on my job than playing games. I know I know. It sucks but that’s what happens when you make money haha. But that’s ok. I’m going to start off by saying, I have had a lot of requests for Fallout 76. It’s going to be a bit before I get the game. I’m having flashbacks from ESO with this game…I’m sorry. I do plan on purchasing BO4 here shortly, but enough of that. Let’s get into this review.

 

For those of you who know me, then you’re aware of how much of a Pokemon fan I am. I remember pulling out my TCG and trading them on the playground, or fighting my friends and kicking their butt. I remember getting my first card. It was Ponyta. I got it because my friend knew I like horses, and he had an extra one he could give me. Ever since then, I have loved the series. Something about it, the fact I could do about anything in the game, whether it was to be a trainer, or a breeder. You could learn about all the different Pokemon and felt like YOU were actually changing the world. It was a lot of things that made this game and series special for me.

 

I have been waiting for this game for awhile, and when I finally got my hands on it, I was elated. Why do you ask? Because the new ideas the game had, and the way it makes the game feel to old veteran players, just spoke it me. It spoke the words of love. As I’m sitting here writing this review, I can’t stop but think I could be playing the game instead of typing on my laptop telling you guys how I feel about this game. But at the same time, I could also be playing the game now and typing one handed. You don’t know what I’m doing. You don’t know me!

 

Haha all joking aside, let’s get into this review. The story line, is basically the same from the first games, and the remakes.  Stop Team Rocket while you defeat your rival and Blue even shows up to make you feel like you’re doing things. I really like the old school feeling as well as the feel of some of the newer games. Not only do I get to relive my childhood in 3d, I get one of my favorite Pokemon to follow me through my journey.  I rather enjoy the little tidbits or lore, and other story ideas that are added to the game as well. Reading the different dialog from the different people are fantastic.

 

So what makes the dialog so neat? They refer to the other games, and the other regions.  For example, I came across a trainer that was from the Alolan area, and she talked about how she missed the beauty that was there, but the water on this place is almost as pretty.  The nods to previous games, and to the current ones make it worth talking to everyone.  But, besides talking to people to see what they have to say, some of the special moves from TMs and HMs are only obtainable when you talk to them. So, the idea of having to speak to everyone excites me. I do it anyways, but now I feel like it’s worth it.

 

Battling in this game is different from the other games. Let’s start with Trainer/Gym/other people. The battle system is the same as it has been. You have the same 4 moves, and there’s some fancy animations for each move. They did add some elite trainers you can fight as well as some Coach Trainers that teach you how to do other moves and how to do things during a fight. The Gym leaders are the total same, with some puzzles added in some of the gyms adding to the fun and excitement.

 

When it comes to wild pokemon, this is a bit different. Why do you ask? Because you don’t actually fight them. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Lily, I don’t like Pokemon Go, why would I want to play this game if I don’t fight wild pokemon?” Three words for you. Mount Moon Cave. Now, with that being said, let me explain why I like how they changed the wild fights. Instead of walking through tall grass then realizing that you left all your repels in your other bag…Wild Pokemon now just appear and run round so you can avoid them all together and with the actual lack of wild pokemon fights, making them easier to run away from as well. So, now you see why I’m rather fond of this mode.

 

With the addition of the new Pokeball Plus, it gives you the option to really feel like a real trainer with the option to “throw” the ball to catch the pokemon. On top of that, it’s another controller AND a Pokewalker. You know that little devide from Heart Gold ans Soul Silver? Yeah, you can totally take pokemon out with you. They will call out to you for attention an give you gifts along your trip. I couldn’t help but get one of these, and I am so excited that I did!!!

 

All in all, this is a Pokemon game. It’s a great one and perfect for those starting their adventure and veterans alike. I feel like this is a good title, and up there with Super Mario Party and, dare I say, Red Dead Redemption 2. There’s only been a handful of pokemon games that I didn’t know, and only a few I feel very passionate about. This is one of those titles that I am passionate about.

 

Check out the Nintendo website or any game selling store to pick up your copy. If you’re lucky enough, get the ball too! TOTALLY worth it!

 

I give this game 10\10 rare candy. I literally can’t tell you how special this game is to me without sounding like a child. I absolutely enjoy this game and I can’t seem to put it down.  I highly recommend this game if you’re into the series and own a switch!

Pokemon ORAS

 

I have been smashing my face against my desk for a few weeks now, the real world decided to test me and so far I passed but who knows nowadays.

 

I want to start off the new year with a great step! Well…kind of great. I have, I hope you’re sitting down, lost my POkemon X game, and my plan to transfer over my Eveelution team failed. Miserably…so…That was a thing. After so many hours I got all but one back…so that’s a start.

 

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are your typical Pokemon games, and with every new game there are new features they add. Many of the features that the game has comes from previous games. I.E Pokemon Amie, Training dummies ect. I do, however, like the sneaking around and DexNav. Though I am set in my ways of the Perfect (and Shiny!!) Eevee trainer, I can’t help but want to be a master.

 

The DexNav to me is both exciting and depressing. “But Uni….why depressing? You can catch a pokemon with up to 3 perfect IVs!!!” Yea…I know this but…I’ve thought about it and it appears that other have the same thought as well, these are Breedjects. Pokemon trainers didn’t want because they were imperfect. Though you do give them a second chance to find the love they are looking for, they were still released. But that is just a theory.

 

Getting into the new features, Secret Bases. Oh my gosh…This was a neat little thing they added.  I enjoy the idea of having fake friends that hang out there and give you cool things! They haven’t given me anything too cool yet but I’m hoping!! My favorite part of the Secret Base would have to be the customizable options you have!

 

Other than those two things, it’s a pokemon game. You go around becoming a master by catching them all, defeating the gym leaders and ultimately the Elite 4 ect.  There isn’t anything more to this game beside the fact you are reliving your childhood in color and 3d (gosh if only…it was around back then!)

 

I have found it hard to put the game down, and I must say it’s a lot easier for me to balance my time between Warlods of Draenor, ORAS and work. But I am now a Master of Real life! HAZAH!

 

I’m going to give ORAS a 9/10 PokeBalls. Why not 10/10? This time, I literally feel like certain things are handed to you instead of earning them or finding them as you explore. I like having to work for fancy things instead of them being all “HERE YOU GO BECAUSE IS YOU YES?”  In X and Y i felt more challenged to get certain items and found that the perfect team will get you far. Now I feel like you don’t have to put the time in to achieve greatness.
