Technically this is a remake of Yellow, not FRLG, so no Sevii makes sense kind of ORAS was a remake of RS and not Emerald so no Battle Frontier.
Still, those examples may be technically right but are shit, because less content is always a bad thing and HGSS exists.

How are you gonna defend this guys?
>>
>>36091697
Let's Go is actually already objectively superior to FRLG. It has a larger variety in the Dex during the main game thanks to Alola Forms, quality of life improvements and fan-favorite features like customization and following Pokemon and HD models, Phy/Spe split and updated movesets.

If you think having some dogshit tiny islands for a post-game negates that and is "more content", I dont know what to tell you.
>>
>>36091771
Theres no fucking bike and you're given a bunch of Pokémon to ride instead

Are we seriously going to pretend it'd be better to have a single shitty bike and the retarded cycling road instead of following/rideble Pokemon?
>>
>>36091771
>>36091779
The bike shop is still in Cerulean City so its not like they aren't giving you the option to do both.
>>
>>36091779
this is /vp/ man, there'll always be SOMEONE to take that position, just to be a contrary fucker.
>>
>>36091791
The bike shop is most likely going to be used for one of their new side quests instead. Why would we have bikes when we can ride a fucking Arcanine? The NPC's arent on bikes anymore, Alola had no bike because you could just ride Tauros or Stoutland.
>>
>>36091779
How about both?
How about having a bike and a cool route where you can ride full speed (it was fun in the past version) and you can use your pokemon anywhere else?
I swear GF is basically stripping content out of the game and you still manage to defend it
>>
>>36091720
So can you catch Eevee outside of the one you're given? It would be a hassle to try to get ALL eeveelutions as I assume you can't breed in this game either unless eggs are in game and "found".

So let me get this straight.

Instead of one shitty highway, GF has had to redesign the Cycling Road into an entire route to travel through, with more Pokémon to find, and probably more items to find too.

And instead of one shitty bike, GF has given you the option to ride many different Pokémon at varying speeds.

And this is "less content" ?

>Bait considering as there's no non Kanto mons in the game as well as catching = exp for party.
This isn't bait. Alola forms are confirmed to be in Let's Go, and FR/LG locked off all non-151 Pokémon from the main game.

ergo, Let's Go factually has more variety for your team building and playthrough. I'd say this is much more important than a postgame of shitty islands where about 20 shitty Johto Pokemon show up.
>>
>>36091598
Why would there be Sevii islands? This is a cashgrab.

Just don't buy it, we all know it's going to be shit anyways. The only people who should be buying it are little kids, we all know there's going to be a bunch of retarded adults who buy it anyways, but you don't have to be one of them.

Don't buy shit games. It's that easy.
>>
>>36091828
The microtranscation diamonds and rubies are people memeing that it looks like a cheap mobile JRPG, they aren't actually in the game
>>
>>36091846
>More variety for team building and playthrough
That would be great if it actually mattered.
But it doesn't matter.
Because the game is designed for 2 year olds and there isn't even a modicum of difficulty in the whole package.
It's a fucking baby game.
It's literally built so you don't have to put effort into teambuilding and strategy.
Your "point" is literally worthless because it's a fucking BABY GAME.

>GF has had to redesign the Cycling Road
They didn't redesign shit. They simply removed the bike and added two patches of grass.
The road is exactly the same, the pokemon are the same except that now it's just another generic route with bikers without any bike because they probably aren't allowed to feel scary.

Now don't get me wrong, I never used the bike in R/B/Y, except here because it was needed and the "gravity" gimmick made the road fun and memorable. You can still ride your pokemon anywhere else on the map.
This is less content and another way to make Kanto even more boring

Why does every post like this just conveniently ignore the fact that the game difficulty has been cut down to near nonexistant? Why does every post like this just conveniently ignore the fact that previous remakes had all the new pokemon in them? Even FRLG had the new mons, just locked behind postgame.

This is the new "Defending ORAS for not having a Battle Frontier because they're RS remakes not Emerald Remakes", even when HGSS had all of the crystal content and ADDED a battle frontier.

Because this is a fabrication which is not true. The game has not been made easier. In fact signs are pointing towards GF actually adressing battles to make them harder, such as Starmie now having Scald.

Just give it up man. Stop giving these hacks your money until they make a game that's actually worth your time instead of eating up whatever cashgrab shit they spew out.
>>
>>36092288
I don't get you, are you complaining that a game marketed toward casuals is casual? I mean I would understand the reaction if this was a proper remake of yellow, but is a remake of yellow aimed towards people who played pokemon go, and gamefreak have been nothing but extremely open about it. If they announced that there's going to be another game in 2019 is because they new that people like you would have this kind of reaction, they basically told you from the start that you're not going to lose anything by not buying this game, and that you should wait for next year instead.
>>
>>36092435
I'm complaining about the fact that half the fucking board seems to be trying to convince people who don't want to buy the game to buy it, grown adults acting like this is the best shit since sliced bread

Yes, it's a game for casuals! But when somebody in this thread called someone else an incel for pointing out that it's for casuals, that's when you start to have a problem.
>>
>>36092129
You know remakes don't have to be the exact same regurgitated shit right? You know remakes can change significant designs elements that wouldn't be possible with previous hardware (such as not making every route look like blocky garbage) right?

You'll find that they argue "it's a remake!" when people point out the lazy parts and "you're just afraid of change!" when you point out the changes they made that make the game worse.
Truth is, it's just mobile phone tier shit for babies. Buy it or don't. I pity anyone who does.

>>36092458
Then just don't fucking buy it, I don't understand the need to become the other face of the coin in this horrible shitposting war. I'm not going to buy it, not because I think is casual trash, but because I know I'm not the target for this game.

I know people think that if this game sells well then GF is going to change everything of any upcoming game to be more like go, but honestly is not something that we can know until it happens. Until then I don't really see the point of this kind of threads, with people of one side of the fanbase trying to destroy the other one, it's just shitposting out of control.
>>
>>36092611
It all boils down to the fact that GF really pissed off a big chunk of the fanbase with this. And rightfully so.
In a perfect world, they'll get giant backlash over it and it'll scare them enough to actually bust their ass on the games from now on, making their "number 1 highest grossing franchise worldwide" title worth a shit.

The air of mystery and exploration was amazing. I just wish a lot more was done with the ruins and stuff besides just chucking Unown in them. The ruins themselves were basically a way less fun Ruins of Alph.

Sevii Islands also weren't in Red and Blue you fucking dolt. You realize that that game is 20 years old right? Gaming as a whole has evolved so it's reasonable to think that more content can be in a game nowadays right? And don't give me this it's a remake shit. Game Freak always adds things with remakes. The Sevii Islands, Johto Battle Frontier, Pokeathlon, and Battle resort were ALL in remakes despite being absent from the source material.
>>
>>36091701
The first three islands being mandatory around the 7th Gym was shitty filler you mean. The entire set of islands should have been post-game because the initial placement hurts the pacing of the game too much. But exploring the other islands as bonus material felt right, even if you don't really imagine Red to have gone on an island-hopping adventure between Gen I and II.
>>
>>36093930
Maybe all that stuff in the remakes were shit so they didn’t add them in these new remakes.
>>
>>36093944
What? Are you fucking retarded or something? Sevii Islands were fun, Pokeathlon was fun, Battle Frontier was fun, debatable about Battle Resort, but there's no doubt it was useful with that second day care and infinite loop for easier hatching. Can you seriously defend Let's Go as well? This game is just more vapid horseshit. It has less content that games that predate it over a decade. That's inexcusable. I don't care what content it is, as long as it's more that even barer than bare bones Yellow remake, it's automatically a better game. Not by much, but marginally better.

HGSS are my favorite games but Platinum is right behind them. I fucking love Mt Coronet.
I dunno, different strokes I guess. I really enjoy Johto and the level curve never bothered me much, though it is a valid criticism.
I also liked going to Kanto, but that's mainly because Kanto has a few of my favorite gym leaders, as does Sinnoh and Johto.

>>36094408
>but that's mainly because Kanto has a few of my favorite gym leaders
Mind telling me which ones? Not being sarcastic, I'm honestly curious because Kantos gym leaders (Not counting Giovanni because I'm speaking strictly about gen 2!Kanto) never really stood out out to me besides Blaine because he had some cool lore regarding Mr Fuji and Mewtwo and Blue for being the only gym leader until gen 5 that didn't specialize in one type.
