In case you weren’t aware, the Nintendo Switch is getting three new Pokémon games:Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee!, Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu!, and Pokémon Quest. Quest will also get a mobile release and it’s a free to start game, which we all know what that means. The best news is we’re getting Gen VIII in late 2019.
Good. Because I don’t see myself actually buying any of those games. They sound downright skippable.
All three feature Kanto Pokémon. The Let’s Go! games are basically just Yellow spin-offs, with features removed. (Apparently, there are no wild Pokémon battles in these.) None of them appeal to me all that much, so I’m thinking that I’m better off just waiting for next year. I have no idea how much either of the Let’s Go! games will cost; anything over $30 seems excessive. But I could be wrong.
At least I can wait awhile on the next generation. I still have a few things to do before Generation VIII. That will keep me busy for a while.
