I dun see much beyond a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of GO players who've only experienced the series on mobile plopping down $300 for a Switch and $60(?) for these games. This move seems very misguided. I think Nintendo still doesn't get mobile gamers. They hit big with GO and FE but their other mobile stuffs quietly faded away. An this'll be another failed attempt to get at mobile gamers. However with Nintendo abandoning cheap handheld gaming they gotta try something. Won't be surprised if Gen 8 sales suffer due to pricing even if Switch does drop by then. There's still that huge difference between $40 games an $60 ones.

This is a weird critism to hear because

A) FRLG had held items
B) This game is going to have the new types, the retcon type changes, and alola forms as well.

No I get you but it doesn't make the game play itself. Obviously Gen I didn't play itself without hold items.

The rest of your complaints on that point are 100% valid though.

Ahh the playing itself comment was that combined with the exp share (which has been confirmed you can turn off) and forcing you to use certain types to enter gyms. You dont fight in wild battles anymore, they got rid of held items, and they hold your hand in gyms like.. what the heck? I want to be optimistic here but they're not giving me anything to work with. Like what the heck is going to happen when you go to the e4?

Overworld Pokemon still has the potential to be cool depending on how that works but.. overworld Pokemon should be a thing in a real open world Pokemon game, not having them confimed to tiny grass on sealed off routes.
