For those that don't know. Autism Speaks is a horrible group. 4% of it's money goes to help autistic people and they stigmatize autistic kids and adults and also think vaccines cause autism.

Pokemon Go news: November's '7 Research Stamp' prize will be Shedinja. What's interesting is that we still can't even get Nincada yet...so this could mean that we might finally see the Nincada line in full.

Nintendo(America) has a weird, cryptic "We're listening, too." thing on their twitter's header now. My interest in saving up for a new switch and the deluxe edition of Let's go, Eevee is rapidly dwindling...

Got Let's Go, Pikachu and I went from "tentatively excited" to "absolutely in love". I actually might be more excited for future Let's Go instalments than future mainline games. Don't get me wrong- the pokeball aiming mechanic is frustrating as heck and absolutely the WORST part of the game. The aiming feels random, laggy and just... not good. But I actually love the way random battles have been replaced with a simple catch game, and seeing pokemon in the overworld vs randomly walking into them makes the world feel way more alive and like a pokemon hunt is really a hunt- and I don't miss seeing my team for every random fight, because they can just follow me around. (Plus there are so many goddang trainers I get to see them plenty anyway)

And the shiny chaining system- oh, do I love thee, shiny chains.

How are other people feeling about the Let's Go games? :D

(Also, for anyone else suffering from the aiming mechanics, holding the switch in handheld mode makes it SUPER SUPER easy and fun again.)

It certainly looks like a good alternative to the main line games. I've been a bit bored at the last few mainly because they are all starting to feel the same to me >.>

But I don't have a Switch yet! There just are not any games on it currently that I think are worth buying a whole console for. Maybe when that No More Heroes comes out or another Monster hunter title if they bring another one out.

Me and my BF have been playing it together.
Its fun. Weird, but fun.
We hate how we cant battle pokemon and have to catch things to really get any good exp. The aiming is a bit dumb, and timing is off some times.
The Pokeball+ is garbage though. There were a lot of oversights with it, unless I'm just not understanding it correctly. It's missing a lot of buttons that the controller would have, so if youre playing with the Pokeball plus, be ready to not be able to access a lot of things that require you to push stuff like the X or Y buttons.
Other than that, its fun.
BF has been using only bedrill and going BZZZZ BZZZZZZZZZ outloud every time he uses fury attack. Had many good laughs so far.

It's okay. Kinda nice to have a real causal Pokemon game.
The catching is... meh at best.
Especially when the Pokemon moves to either side so it's harder to aim with motion controls.
I've mostly been playing it in hand held mode.
Pokemon following you once again is amazing, especially since you can ride the larger ones.
Love seeing the Pokemon in the over world, although it does lag a bit if there's too many on the screen in hand held.
Eevee is drop dead ADOREABLE.
Glad I didn't get the Pokeball+ as all I've heard about it is that it's garbage.

There is one really big grip I have about it...

Been having a great time with it! Lotta fun! Pikachu's cute as heck. Not a fan that we are forced to catch and catch and catch some more to lvl though or train up stats tho.

I even caught three shinies so far! (Bulbasaur, Golbat and Oddish)

Shiny Hunting Methods in Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee.

We love shinies...here's the methods present in these games so you can try to get one!

To get the Shiny Charm (higher shiny chances just for having it), you need to catch all non-mythical pokemon in Kanto's pokedex (don't need Mew, Meltan or Melmetal)

The methods:

Soft Reset: A common tactic for shiny hunting...this is present here too. Soft reset can be used on interactable wild pokemon (Snorlax, Electrode, Legendaries) and gifted pokemon (Porygon, Lapras, Fossils, Hitmons, Kanto Starters) to try for a shiny. The starter Pikachu and Eevee are shiny-locked. Don't even try.

Trading: In Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee, you can trade Kanto pokemon for their Alola form counterparts. What's interesting though is that you can do these trades as many times as you like! No limit other than needing the right pokemon. Not only that, but the trade result CAN be shiny! This is the ONLY way to get shiny alolan forms in these games. Note 1: DON'T TRADE YOUR SHINIES TO THESE PPL! YOU ARE NOT GUARENTEED A SHINY IN RETURN! Note 2: Alolan Sandshrew and Grimer and Pikachu exclusive....Alolan Meowth and Vulpix are Eevee exclusive.

Catch Combo: Catching the same pokemon over and over can get various bonuses! at 11, 21, and finally 31 chains you increase shiny chances as well as other things, such as guarenteed 4 perfect IV's. Combined with Lures and Shiny Charm, this is the best method for shinies. The shiny chance is a blanket, all inclusive buff...it doesn't only effect the pokemon you are chaining. So you could farm route 1 pokemon, then head to like...Victory Road to shiny hunt.

Forgot to mention: The following factors will break a Catch Combo:

1: Catching a pokemon other than what you are comboing. (you have a combo of 11 Pidgey but you catch a Rattatta...you just broke your combo. Catching a pokemon of the same evolution line ends your combo too. Your Pidgey combo will break if you catch Pidgeotto)

2: Other Pokemon runs away. When going for a capture attempt, every pokemon has some animations to be aware of:

A: Dodging. This won't remove the capture circles, but its harder to hit the pokemon with the ball during this animation as they are mobile. Jumping in the air, jumping to the side, Floating/Flying to the side, floating/flying all around are all examples of Dodge animations.

B: Attacking animation: The pokemon stops moving, and instead does an attack. During this animation, the capture circles disappear. Your pokeballs will be wasted even if you hit the pokemon during this animation. Some pokemon, like Charizard and the Legendary Birds, have 2 attack animations, so be mindful of that.

C: Fleeing animation: Similar to an attack animation, the pokemon stops moving around and does a special animation. The difference is that the capture circles are still present, meaning pokeballs still function during this animation. The point of this animation is that the pokemon is signalling that it is about to run away, breaking your catch combo. If you see this animation, the best course of action is to run away first and preserve your combo.

and 3: Turning the game off. Going to the Switch home menu and turning off Pokemon Let's Go via the 'Close Software' option or fully powering off your system entirely will break your combo. Going into Sleep mode is safe however.

Hope this helps!
