KoopaTV Live Reacts: Nintendo Treehouse Live | E3 2018: Pokémon, Let's Go Pikachu + Eevee

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - We're not getting this game.

One bad thing about Nintendo Treehouse Live | E3 2018 is that we'll see a lot of content we don't care about. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee are two of those games, and they're the subject of this log. (Read this for why it's bad.)

Here to half pay attention is myself and Rawk, though Rawk is only talking about other stuff.

E3 Weeks 2018 Schedule!

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WE'RE BACK

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The log article for Smash and the Direct are no closer to being done.

[1:20 PM] RawkHawk2010: Oh hey it's that girl.

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's Masuda and a Pikachu.

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And translator with Eevee.

[1:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Teresa.

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And Bill Trinen.

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: By the way, want to say that Treehouse intermission  playing music from Smash 4 and a "COMING BACK!" screen is better than Sony's intermission.

[1:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Of losers talking.

[1:21 PM] RawkHawk2010: Time to hear what bad ideas Masuda has come up with this time.

[1:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: (everyone go read that no-battle-frontier-in-ORAS explanation he gave)

[1:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: This game is what if Pokemon was for everyone?

[1:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Don't they say that every time?

[1:22 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yes.

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: That was the theme of 2006.

[1:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's talking about how kids don't have smartphones.

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Well here it is.

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Three year olds use smart phones.

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: One was at Red Robin filming itself eating.

[1:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I like that there are Pokémon in the overworld instead of random en-..

[1:23 PM] RawkHawk2010: Wait.

[1:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nevermind there are random encounters.

[1:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They just encountered a wild Kakuna.

[1:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: Razz Berries.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And there wasn't a Kakuna on the overworld.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING POKéMON IN THE OVERWORLD IF THERE ARE RANDOM ENCOUNTERS ANYWAY

[1:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: I forgot what Razz Berries are actually supposed to do.

[1:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: In the real games.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You're supposed to feed them to your Pokémon.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: To improve their coolness.

[1:24 PM] RawkHawk2010: But as a Hold?

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Erm, you make Poké Blocks.

[1:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Out of them.

[1:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So basically everything is like the Safari Zone now.

[1:25 PM] RawkHawk2010: This is gonna get old.

[1:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Why is "you're able to play the whole game with one Joy-Con" an accomplishment?

[1:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You're able to play Pokémon RPGs with a control pad and an A button.

[1:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (You could have a menu button too but that's theoretically optional)

[1:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder that in the new RPG games, you can exp from catching too.

[1:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But you can also actually do battles.

[1:27 PM] RawkHawk2010: I wanna "skip ahead" while watching this but then I realize I can't.

[1:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Trainer battle.

[1:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So is the only way you can grind is by using limited-supply items?

[1:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Poké Balls)

[1:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Quite a difference between catching gameplay and battle gameplay."

That's not a good thing.

[1:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf is that

[1:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SMASH BROS. OFF-SCREEN

[1:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Smash Bros. demo music is invading Let's Go's.

[1:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Smash music keeps doing that.

[1:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu is doing a final smash off-screen.

[1:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: wait hold the phone

[1:37 PM] RawkHawk2010: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=Arw6c0dJHAE

[1:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh whoa they uploaded individual clips of every character?

[1:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That is super useful.

[1:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That means I have one.

[1:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Probably not

[1:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Maybe you and all your siblings in the same one

[1:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: Anyway

[1:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah, that.

[1:38 PM] RawkHawk2010: KRYSTAL IS IN

[1:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With the falling.

[1:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Eh?

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: That's what I just linked.

[1:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...where?

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: The thing you just watched!

[1:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OH WHOS

[1:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: She's an Assist Trophy!

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yes

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: In her Adventures design.

[1:39 PM] RawkHawk2010: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth:

[1:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 2nd player demo person is named "Supporter"

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu Bulbasaur two vs. one battle
This is bullying.

[1:40 PM] RawkHawk2010: I hear a tennis racket in the background.

[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Masuda-san is doing the music.

[1:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: Good

[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For Let's Go.

[1:41 PM] RawkHawk2010: Means Go can be on the real game.

[1:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Teresa hasn't played Pokémon since Game Boy.

[1:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You mean Gō Ichinose.

[1:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: ya Go

[1:42 PM] RawkHawk2010: Didn't wanna search that o

[1:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This rider Onix is gonna clip everyone.

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu Eevee riding Onix overworld clipping characters
It looks worse in motion and with more things on the screen.

[1:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: New character named "Trace"

[1:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's the rival.

[1:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: Masuda's Red/Blue music is actually good so him arranging it is good.

[1:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Trace gives you 5 Potions.

[1:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Instead of smelling you later.

[1:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He's "quite kind."

[1:44 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's just his modern battle themes are all really bad

[1:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So he's another Hau.

[1:45 PM] RawkHawk2010:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Krystal Assist Trophy Star Fox Adventures
(This isn't related to the subject of the log.)

[1:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: ^ this heightens my opinion on Ultimate quite a bit just so you know.

[1:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yo wrong log.

[1:45 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yeah because of course we're not gonna talk about Smash in other logs.

[1:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: :mario_face_palm:

[1:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pictures too?!

[1:46 PM] RawkHawk2010: Yes if they're really important.

[1:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Ridley hits the big time!" is actually funny.

[1:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're going to the Viridian City gym.

[1:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: oh no

[1:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's Pewter.

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I didn't even recognise Pewter.

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pewter City gym now has audience stands.

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not many people in there.

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But I guess there's no battle scheduled.

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You HAVE to use a Grass or Water Pokémon to battle.

[1:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The referee won't LET YOU battle Brock without a Water or Grass type.

[1:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: Hand-holding?

[1:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And you have to show the referee Water and Grass types.

[1:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or he'll kick you out.

[1:49 PM] RawkHawk2010: We aren't buying this are we?

[1:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I sure won't.

[1:51 PM] RawkHawk2010: Fuck this I need to rewatch that Torna trailer that I thought was gonna be Octopath Traveler.

[1:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The demo cut out before Brock's battle.

[1:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: Okay I don't know if they showed this during the Direct but

[1:54 PM] RawkHawk2010: Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country gets its own physical release.

[1:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Not the original game + that.

[1:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: Just that.

[1:55 PM] RawkHawk2010: It's apparently that big/significant.

[1:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...

[1:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, you can buy a season pass which is just a download code for Breath of the Wild.

[1:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which is a card that takes up retail space.

[1:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I hear Rabbids in the background.

[1:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're showing a pre-made video for Let's Go right now on communication features.

[1:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Local wireless or Internet.

Link trades and battles.

[1:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You have "link codes".

[1:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Matchmaking password.

[1:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf

[1:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Tell your friend, pick Pikachu, Bulbasaur, and Eevee, and you can trade together."

[1:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So the passwords are based on your friend's party.

[1:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So you can end up trading with anyone in the world and not your specific friend.

[1:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If they happen to have the same dudes.

[2:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Talking about GO Park and Pokémon GO and transferring but I don't care.

[2:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can transfer from random people's GOs.

[2:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Not just yours.

[2:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 'cause it doesn't know whose smartphone it is.

[2:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Once transferred, they ditch GO, and it gives you candy in GO.

[2:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh...

[2:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not sure what's on-screen now.

[2:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Is this of GO?

[2:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're talking about celebrating the show.

[2:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pikachu Eevee and Let's Go... and Unown...

[2:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Appear in Pokémon GO.

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're ending this.

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: More to come.

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh.

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "One more announcement"

[2:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Amiibo?

[2:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nintendo offering bundle version of Let's Go and Poké Ball Plus controller.

[2:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought that was implied.



The next reaction log is going to be for a game that no one on the staff likes. Have fun?


The previous log, of course, is the main Nintendo Direct itself.

The next reaction log has Fortnite, but also more Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
