Reviewed in Australia on 18 November 2020
As someone who played Pokémon Yellow growing up, it felt nostalgic to be running around Kanto again. Not only has the game been remade from its foundations, extras have been added too. It's the same old Kanto, but there's a fresh feel to the world, like returning to a place you haven't visited in years. The graphics are top-notch too, and the environments are stunning.
You can now catch each starter in the wild, and like in Yellow, you can have one of your pokémon travel with you. Wild pokémon appear on the map, making it easier to avoid battles or specific pokémon.
My only gripe is how wild encounters are handled. Gone is the usual battle mode where you to whittle down a wild pokémon's HP and try to catch them with a limited number of Poké Balls. Instead there is the Pokémon Go mode. Like in the Safari Zone, you only get to throw items at the pokémon to catch them. Since wild encounters were the main way to learn the ropes and train, it may make battling more difficult later on for newcomers to the series.
