Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee and Pikachu were launched exclusively for Nintendo Switch on 16 November 2018 worldwide. So it’s been two years since they made their debut on the hybrid console. These titles stand out for being a reboot of the first deliveries and are focused on the capture of creatures, although they can also be fought.
Both deliveries left the community divided, as many were not convinced by their proposal and would have referred to a version more similar to the main games of the saga so far. Well, on this occasion a new leak this December related to these titles has revealed that they were made “easier” before their release.
These are the details that have been shared:
- Game Freak supposedly made RPGs “much easier” before their release. The first version to appear online also shows that content involving the iconic Red protagonist was removed from the final version of the games.
- Twitter user ‘Lewchube’ documented the leak and revealed the changes.
- Among them we can find that “Giovanni’s entire team is 7 levels above the final, while Lance has dropped 5 at launch. Towards the middle of the game, some coaches like Sabrina have fewer Pokémon, like their Jynx that has left” and “it seems that there was a cut-off event for the story involving the chase of the fossils on Mount Moon just after meeting Blue (and Red), but that data has been erased”.
- Finally, although fans may eventually challenge the 1998 protagonist, Red, in a special battle in the final part, it seems that the hero was destined to play a more important role in the 2018 remake. In the filming, there are several scenes that point to players encountering the character in Silver City.
There is no doubt that one of the most common criticisms in the last years of the Pokémon saga, in general, is the low level of difficulty of its deliveries. Although the intention of Game Freak seems to be to reach all kinds of public, a solution that would please everybody would be to include a difficulty selector in future deliveries. This way, each player could adapt the difficulty according to the level of challenge they are interested in facing.
