Better to keep expectations low and be surprised

Allll right. That would never happen, at least the latter, but I will legit go bonkers if they do in fact announce Let's Go, Dunsparce.

I am expecting Togepi, Marill, and/or Snubbull to be the most likely mascots though.

I hope it's not Let's Go. Would rather a new remake with switch engine.

Togepi and Marill would be good fits but how about Espeon and Umbreon? That would keep the Eevee trend going. Or better yet: Pichu and Marill!

If a Gen 2 "Let’s Go" game happened, the naming would be based on the starters: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Just as it was for the Gen 1 "Let’s Go" games, which are a remake of Pokémon Yellow. In that game your starter was a Pikachu and your rival had an Eevee. Which is why the Pikachu counterpart is Eevee for Let’s Go.

The problem with using the starters is that one would be left out. You're right though. I forget that Eevee technically is a starter.

Same here, though I was only aware of one of the events as I had stopped playing Go once the initial hype had died down (I was only ever casual; I had never participated in raid battles or anything like that). I don't pay much attention to any of the events. Considering the poor battery life of my phone, I can't see myself getting back into it any time soon unless some friends want to embark on a Go outing.

I would hate for Pichu to be a version mascot. Pikachu is already the most grossly overexposed Pokémon that there is. I would rather that they use the opportunity to popularise two other characters instead.

Espeon and Umbreon could possibly happen, but doubtful as the Let's Go games are more young/casual skewing, and they aren't as cute as many of the other Pokémon introduced in Gen II, which is the angle that Game Freak are going for in the marketing of these games.

I just want a game starring Togepi though, and if the original voice actress reprises her role, it would be a nostalgia trip in more ways than one for many of us, and Togepi is just ridiculously adorable and one of my favourite Pokémon of all time (I was so happy that it got an evolution in Gen IV in the form of Togekiss).

Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee were based on Pokémon Pikachu Version (it is only known as "Yellow" outside of Japan), so if anything, Game Freak would likely choose the two most popular/cute Gen II Pokémon as there isn't a precedent like there was in the form of Pikachu/Yellow version, as Crystal was an enhanced version of Gold/Silver as opposed to a game designed to better reflect the tone and trajectory of the anime.

I wouldn't count on them using any of the babies, though it is a possibility. I certainly wouldn't object to Let's Go, Smoochum!

I can't imagine that they would simultaneously release three variations of what is essentially the same game (for each of the usual starters), but considering the sucker that I am for Gen II, it wouldn't stop me from buying and playing all three. At least with the GBC games, Gold/Silver versions had their own distinct sprites for the majority of Pokémon, with Crystal going further by animating them (Crystal's sprites were predominantly based on the Gold sprites). Without that distinction, I imagine that playing the same game three times over would probably be just a bit tedious (though I did enjoy simultaneously playing G/S/C on 3DS).

I also imagine that it would be a bit of a PR disaster splitting the three starters into their own games when they were available by default in previous installments. I would hedge my bets on Togepi and either Marill or Snubbull, with the three starters being available in specific routes like the Gen I starters were in the Let's Go games (or perhaps gifted by NPCs).

I think the Direct is also likely to reveal more on the Switch version/sequel of Detective Pikachu, which was officially announced, but nothing beyond that had been revealed.

Actually it's called Pokémon Special Pikachu Edition, but just say Pokémon Yellow is easier (and less to type).

Theres a nice sale going on now.

I just grabbed the 'Aladdin & Lion King' 16-bit 2pack for 30% off at $19.99.

Still higher than I'd like, but less than $10 a game plus multiple versions and a lot of extra goodies seems fine for something I really miss playing and enjoyed the hell out of as a kid

Yugioh Link Evolution for $20 is a steal. The included promo card pack is selling for $15 on eBay right now. You can get the game for around $5 bucks after selling the promos, you can't go wrong.

35 minute Smash presentation on Thursday to reveal the 5th character. Seems excessive.

So we've gotten Pokemon and Smash Directs but not one for Switch in general? Kind of weird

I think so. I've completed the Duel Monsters portion of the game. You can play character duels all the way up to the beginning of VRAINS, build your own decks, etc. If you like Yu-Gi-Oh then you'll enjoy it.

I bought my daughter NBA2K20 for Christmas, and she can't even run the game without external storage. If you have the physical game do you just update on the memory card? I must be getting old. I'm not understanding new tech!

Yeah, it needs to go on the larger memory card.
