They're both children's computer games being sold to grown men to distract us from the intolerable injustice of the world around us as part of the grand capitalist spectacle of bread and circuses, so at the end of the day, what else matters?

Um excuse me it's not a children's computer game it's an interactive electronic art experience

Laughing I think I'm Team Buska - in playing it I think it's totally fine as a remake and not a crushing disappointment like many people are making it out to be, and if I were playing this as a ten year old I'd be having a grand old time too.

Unusually for me, I've spent most of my time playing on the big screen. Playing it in handheld this morning, it does feel to me like it was designed mainly with handheld mode in mind - it looks really rather pretty on the small screen. Been having fun mooching around in the Grand Underground too, which is something I couldn't say about the originals.

Just beat the fourth gym now, and I’ve settled on a team that’ll eventually evolve into Empoleon, Roserade, Ursaring, Medicham, Houndoom and Altaria. I’ve never used any of these Pokemon in any mainline game before, so it’s helping to keep things fresh and different for me.

There’s a lot of this that I don’t remember well, and occasional parts that completely escaped my memory at some point over the last fifteen years. There’s been pleasant surprises – that soundtrack is superb! – but the trainer fights and random encounters are just a pain in the arse. Outside of gyms and the Grand Underground, I’m at least ten levels higher than everything I came across, and sometimes closer to twenty. That’s without grinding too, those days of needing to do that are long past.

There’s no satisfaction from any of the battles, and there hasn’t been for ages. Were the original Diamond and Pearl games always this unbalanced?

I'm a good way ahead of the level cap too*. Having played the originals almost to death, I believe this is down to the mandatory EXP Share. I only have my starter as my definitive team member at the moment (almost at the third gym), as I keep using the remaining slots in my team to grind evolutions for my Pokédex.

And is it just me, or is this game really rather pretty in handheld mode? It's a night and day difference between handheld and TV.

*I am one of these maniacs though who grinds for fun. Mainly for evolutions as previously stated.

I was hoping for more challenge than SwSh but it's not here. Let's Go seemed tougher, I lost a few battles, was it harder or is it just because it was my first Pokemon game?

Would say because first Pokemon as Let's Go seemed to be aimed to be eaiser than normal, which are pretty easy compared to other JRPG's.

I'm probably going to experience this one vicariously through Buska's streams - the art style and my general lack of interest in Generation IV has meant I've not had much desire in picking these up.

As for the comments about the lack of challenge in battles, that's almost certainly going to be linked to the forced XP share, right? I found setting the battling style to Set instead of Switch helped a bit in Sw/Sh to up the sense of difficulty. They're never going to be hard games though being RPGs aimed at younger kids.

Pokémon will never be hard after your first game because you understand types and how to level a team.

I like trying to make Pokémon games harder for myself by having whatever the hell I want in my team, and it's still easy. I just play these games for the fun of progression though, not for any potential challenge as such.

Forgot how much of a dearth of fire types there are in the middle gens, though. Strange when gym two literally recommends them when you speak to the guy at the entrance. Nothing a good flying attack won't sort, though.

Not hard as your first game either now it tells you which type moves are effective to use and your whole team levels up Wink
