WTMG's Leo Faria: "Rather than being a step back from the classic Pokémon games, I came to find out that Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! act more as stepping stones for casual Pokémon Go players in order for them to get used to the series' mechanics before the inevitable arrival of the next generation of games. It's definitely not a deep game and it's even easier and more simplified than the more recent (and already simplified) Pokémon games, but that's fine. I'm not the target audience, and I can definitely see Go players migrating in huge numbers to this title and actually becoming mainstream Pokémon players further down the line."
