I read the spoilers.

I'll still wait for reviews and what other people have to say, but at this point, I just can't seem justified to get it. Honestly, Fire Red/Leaf Green seem to still be relevant and have aged pretty well (that GBA speed FTW). It also had a nice difficulty spike when you rematch the Elite 4, plus I liked the Sevii islands (though my opinion there is an unpopular one).

You think it looks good? I'm skeptical.

It's pretty dumbed down and they've said it's to try and get the Pokémon Go crowd involved.

I love Pokémon Go and love the Kanto region. The wifey and I are getting Let's Go, Pikachu and Let's Go, Eevee respectively but we're keeping our expectations low. The recent games, since about X & Y, have become extremely easy. The Exp Share, forced Legendary captures, etc. I get that the games became far more focused on online battling, micromanaging team building, etc. But we don't really battle online and wanted good adventures.

Just because they have higher levels doesn't mean they're stronger. Trainer Red in HeartGold/SoulSilver had level 80+ everything including a level 88 Pikachu and level 82 Snorlax who has high defense and HP. It only takes a team of mid 50s to beat him, and level 65+ almost guarantees you'll win that fight. That's cause of IVs, EVs, etc. (admittedly, I don't know that IVs and such will be in this game). That's why leveling your team to level 50 using, say, Rare Candies, produces a much weaker team than a team leveled to 50 the old fashioned way.

And on a personal level, I hate that the rival isn't hateable. Part of what made beating Gary/Blue and Silver SO satisfying was just how smug they were towards you. The whole idea of them being all friendly is just a turnoff. They've said it's because they don't want to upset kids, which I get... So if they're aiming the game towards kids I feel like it's not for me, you know? Although I could always hate the rival for not being a scumbag and ruining my game haha

Understood.

Like I said, we'll get it, but I'm skeptical on whether or not it will be a good game. I'm hoping that regardless of difficulty, the game is fun. And it looks like it will be.
