Great OT!

I'm literally going to pick this up at 10am tomorrow. I truly hope no one will notice my 30 minutes absence from work while I quickly go to my local game store tomorrow!

5.5 hours left for me to dig in, yay! I don't know if I'll be able to throw a curved ball since I cannot even write very well, lol.

Never played a Pokemon game before but that map seems... very small?
It'a roughly a 1:1 recreation of the map from the original 1995 Gameboy Game. Yes, it's ultra small and I think it makes zero sense and feels too packed and nonsensical when translated to 3D.

Any chance they'll add Pokemon from other gens like they did with Go?
They made clear that (aside for Meltan/Melmetal) they won't

I don't really understand the part in the OP about Meltan and evolving it. So you transfer any Pokemon you want from Go to Let's Go, then you get a Mystery Box in Go or Let's Go? After that you can catch Meltans for 30 minutes and with the candy you can evolve Meltan, right?

You get the Mystery Box in Go, which then works like an incense but for Meltan. Don't expect to catch many in the 30 minutes though, most people are getting about 10. Also you can only do it once a week.

i have turned abit around on this game over the few months, i'm still not gonna be buying on release day but i'll give it a shoot later down the line when i can find a cheaper copy

I dont think they will animate hundreds of pokemon ,but everything possible for sure.
based on footage i have seen the pokemon in the grass are just using there normal walking animation and GF have already made walking animation for every pokemon


they even made them for all the different forms including megas for some reason

Allright, got it. Thanks for clearing that up.

EDIT: Btw, do we know how many candy we need to evolve Meltan?

I think it was 400, which is standard for some powerful mons in PoGo. At an average of 10 Meltans per week, 3 candies per capture, it's going to take roughly 3 and a half months to get a Melmetal, half as much if you use Pinap Berry in all your captures, a bit less if you stick a Meltan as your companion in PoGo and walk to get extra candies.

I guess I'll play it, but this is the first time in... forever... that I'm not looking forward to a Pokémon game. I was kinda interested after the initial unveil but eveything we've seen from this game has been killing my hype step by step.

if its only once a week then nobody is gettting meltan evolved form any time soon seeing as how i believe the number was 400 candies to evolve meltam

This will be a nice game to play in between my long read dead sessions. Will be nice to pick up for 30 mins to an hour rather than red dead which i usually play for over 2 hours at a time.

You can walk for candies and probably use pinap berry from pokemon go. So should be pretty quick if you play a bunch.

Short question about coop, that I didn't find any details about. Is it possible to customize the coop partner as well? I mean, choosing gender, changing cloth etc?

Does anybody know if the physical Japanese version is multi-language or has any kind of IP lock for the online? I have a friend on a trip in Japan and people at stores told him that even though the game will work in the European console, it might give troubles with the online connectivity or something like that. Maybe they're parroting the old "unexpected behaviour when connected to Pokémon games in other languages" from the early gens?

Ugh Melmetal is a great Pokemon but I cannot be bothered to do all that just to get one.

On a more positive note my order was just dispatched so I should be able to start tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

Is map size important in Pokemon games though? How many hours to finish the game are we talking about here?
IIRC Red/Blue/Yellow was on the short side and quite straightforward. This was before there were hundreds of monsters to catch/evolve and before a lot of time-consuming mechanics like berries and breeding were in. With PokeGo style catching being a faster encounter than random battles it could be a bit shorter.

Welp, it's midnight on the 16th in NZ as of four minutes ago and the game hasn't unlocked yet. I guess it's not a midnight release in NZ. I think I'll go to bed.

I don't normally comment on OT titles, but this one...THIS ONE! It's so perfect.

Thanks for the OT!
