    Well there is a Pokemon game of sorts to tide the fan over until the next main title is released. I'm still in deep with Pokemon Go with MrsBS so no doubt I'll pick this up :p

    We get physically tangible and (somewhat) functional Pokeball!!!! ZOMG! Even if the Pokeball was not a thing, it's good to see we'd be able to wrist-flick the Switch remote to imitate throwing a Pokeball.
    I wonder if the good ol' UP+A trick will still work to improve success chances.
    November release. That's actually not too far away.

    The Pokemon Global News page on Facebook claims that the game might not have wild battles but capture only (like Go), and no online gameplay.
    How long will it take for people/social media power to quickly reverse those decisions?

    There is a full mainline RPG coming next year.
    I guess the Lets Go games are to introduce a basic RPG version to people that have only played Go.

    This colour scheme is much more easing on the eyes than red and blue ones that make you feel like you're getting stabbed in the retinas.

    Same price as buying individual units, except the switch itself is that scheme. At least they're not gouging.

    4 days to go!
    Apparently they've recently announced a cradle charger for the pokeball. I found it by accident on EB's website the other day and was able to preorder, but seems to have been delisted since...

    Nice find.

    A bit interesting for me, though, since I have the bundle on preorder with EB, and have only $20 left to pay off, so basically I've paid off $10 more than Target's promo. I'm checking with EB now if they'll honour the price match. Not going to demand a $10 refund, but will see if I can put it down towards the cradle, which I have about $15 to pay off.

    And the day has come!

    Forgot to update the other day on this. EB won't price match unless the eligible Target store is within close proximity, but they're open to matching with JB who are advertising for $119.
