Ugh, it's not the same without the associated childhood misery.

I do enjoy when posts that look bizarre without the context end up starting a new page of a thread. Laughing

On the other hand, though, I probably will start using some Lets Go music in LLP. (You misacronymmed it to Luke Plays Pokemon again).

Hey, at least I mentioned it at all. Sulk

I'm not sure about 'better' either! But with the more simplistic graphics, the music had a bigger say in the tone of the piece, meaning that you didn't quite get the same tonal dissonance you do in Viridian Forest. If they'd made the graphics darker and the wild monsters more aggressive it would have absolutely dumped on the original version.

Could arrange a trade sometime next week? But I'd need to get to the point where I have an alternative to offer first.

I've got about ten Pokémon on the (let's) go at the moment, and am rotating them often. Do that, and I'd say the game definitely isn't as easy as it's made out to be!

Well, Drunka or Balla, I have a Graveler and I'm up for trading (and trading back) when you are. First come, first served. Drunka sounds more ready but Balla is more my-time-zoney. Who will win?!

I think you should up the ante. They've got trade you a legendary Pokémon to be worthy of your soon-to-be Golem. It's only fair.

I got to Vermillion City and caught a diglett to hrlp with Surge. Then I decided I dont want to beat him with a Diglett, I want to get my Cubone first. I went up to Cerulean to head East for Lavendar but I needed Cut. So I went back, did eberything on the SS Anne, then headed round to Rock Tunnel. Id planned to go all the way through but I caught Cubone in the tunnel. Onwards to Gym 3!

Rock Tunnel is gorgeous by the way.

I've got my Diglett. It's called Yamada, after the bloke who invented the original version of Whac-a-Mole.

I am of course planning to catch a second Diglett, which I shall trade for one with glorious hair. It's a shame you can only get the Alolans via trading though, meaning I can't carry over my naming convention.

The rival is also a shame.

Surge leathered me a good five times, and the following Grass gym leader beat me even more times than that. I found Let's Go Pikachu to be quite hard going in the early part, but that was due mostly to having a team with Clefairy, Jigglypuff and a Mew with fairly poor stats. I'm doing better now though, with Pikachu, Garadyos, Clefable, Ivysaur, Charmeleon and Hitmonchan. I've just caught Snorlax, that's where I'm at. I'm looking forward to being able to transfer Pokemon from Go to Let's Go though.

When does Clefairy get a Fairy-type move?  I've been carrying one with me for ages because I had one in my first successful playthrough of... Yellow I think, but it's now a Fairy without any moves of its type! It can't learn Scald either, whereas I taught mine Bubblebeam. Aww! At least it's got Thunderbolt now.

Ivysaur, meanwhile, is hilariously good at this point in the game. Leech Seed + Sleep Powder = laughing all the way to the bank.

Going through Rock Tunnel with flash is boring compared to how weird and gorgeous it looks without it.

Clefairy learns Moonblast at around level 28ish, as I remember.

I've taken your advice about Ivysaur, and put it back in my team after swapping it out last night. My team is badly unbalanced though, and I'd quite like to change a couple of Pokemon about. Does anybody have any suggestions as to which ones to add?

Hmm . . . maybe swap out that Hitmonchan for a psychic or a ghost, they're more useful overall. Seeing as you're already past Surge, there isn't much point with a rock or a ground type. My Charmeleon's days are numbered, as soon as I find the NPC for Alolan Marowaks I'm going all in on that good fire and ghost boy.

I really like the sound of Alolan Marowak - I didn't even remember that there was an Alolan Marowak! I've look for that NPC too 👍

Phew! Four levels to go. Then I'll shove a Moonstone down its throat.

Alolawak is definitely joining the team when I get one. Apart from anything else, it's that or Gengar for a ghost type, and I cannae evolve Haunter without a trade...

I liked the cut-scene before Rock Tunnel. Drunka's right, though: it looks like it might be easy enough to get through RT without Flash, and it's much more atmospheric that way!

'Secret techniques', though? Cripes...

Very true.

I have an Alolan Dugtrio now! Also it looks like this particular part of the game's only got darker. Good.

I never found I needed a mixed team as I would normally in a Pokemon game, Eevee being able to learn a move from its evolution chain made the game even easier and I reckon I could have gone the whole game pretty much just with Eevee.

I'd argue it's more taking down a team of 6 Mon with one little Eevee *insert evil laugh*

I'm at Cinnabar Island, cracking on with a team of Pikachu, Mew, Clefable, Garaydos, Alolan Marowak and Alolan Muk. That's not that balanced, I think, and I'm losing more battles than I ever did in Red/Blue/Yellow/FireRed/LeafGreen. Still, I'm hoping to finish this before Smash, so I'll just push ahead (and get my arse kicked).

Level 'em up a bunch through chaining and do it that way?  As far as I recall, a balanced team has always been rather optional in the originals (I'm hoping so since I want to include two Normal types in my final squad).  Speaking of which...

I think Pokémon, more than most other games, emphasises playing it any way you want.  This is definitely a valid way, given how OP the starters seem to be when Candied up.  As long as you're having fun!

Yeah the starters are stupidly OP, it made the game fun in away but ridiculously easy.

I've got a Marowak, Alolan Marowak, Golduck, Alolan Sandslash, Vileplume and of course Pikachu. This is a team I can probably be happy with through to the Elite Four so I can crack on - I've only done the first three gyms! I would like to finish the main quest before Smash, but eventually I plan to finish the Pokedex and take the master rank with each 'Mon.

I've just got a Marowak of my own! With an Atk-Down nature. Sulk Into the trade system it goes...

I've just reached the Game Corner, and... it's been gutted, functionality-wise. There are a couple of areas where this sort of thing is noticeable, such as the Bike Shop (rideable Arcanine is not a fit substitute because it requires having an early-evolved Arcanine in my team) and the house of the man who owns Dux, but this is a pretty bad one.
