Want to face off against Brock with just your starter? Think you’re going to be allowed to face misty with an electric type and not a grass type? Well clearly you’re not thinking in the modern day y’all.
With the current Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee games one of the largest differences with Gyms is that you are required to now meet certain requirements. Your pokemon need to be a certain level and you may have to have a specific typing.
Is this a good thing? Do you think it will carryover to the main games? Is it simply a new form of hand holding for Pokemon? Or something you think the company is just trying out?
