Really?

Yes. What’s not to like about a remake of RBY with live encounters? The game was marketing towards people who like Pokémon Go and was a hybrid system to get them ready with Pokémon for the next core RPG. 

 

While I’m not a fan of the pokeball throwing mechanic the difference was negligible as I saw no different in timing a throw than false swipe, sleep a Pokémon and pray for the catch. 

 

Live encounters and the fortune teller should be in every single game here on out. In fact I’m sad we’re back to random encounters in Sword and Shield. 

 

For what it was, LGP was well worth the money.

I'm looking forward to seeing an RPG pokemon game come out. I must admit, I'm really tempted by Pokemon Go but I was not so sure about how much depth the game had above and beyond the Pokemon Go game.

 

When you say 'random' encounters, do you mean similar to how you encounter battles on Final Fantasy 7/8?

Traditional: 

Run into busy, a random number generator tells you which pokemon appears on screen. 

 

Let's Go Pokemon:

Pokemon come out of the grass and walk around. If you don't want to encounter them you just walk around them. (Think of super mario rpg)
