Not the nostalgia you'd expect.
17 November 2018
As a millennial, this game sounded amazing and I bought the Switch just to play this, and pre-ordered it. Now that it's arrived and I'm about £300 lighter, it's not what I expected. Basically, the deal breaker is that you can't fight wild pokemon. You can only throw poke balls and berries at them. This means when you're surrounded by 10 pidgeys, all you can do is catch them and gain exp for your pokemon that way, or run. It just seems totally pointless to me. I have until the end of January to decide whether or not to return it, so I haven't decided yet. Its likely I will.
