How the POKÉMON: LET’S GO PokéDex should look

I’ve decided to play through Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu once more, this time with a more varied team and to a more complete degree. But after watching the movie Pokémon: I Choose You, there are some things about the original Pokédex that I feel need updating.

While the movie is predominantly set in Kanto, it clearly is set in a world that includes all the other regions created since the first generation, unlike Let’s Go, which mostly operates in its own bubble.

Similarly, rather than being a straight-up remake, Let’s Go! meshes in some of the gameplay mechanics of the popular Pokémon GO! mobile game, to create a new-user friendly variant of the classic Pokémon games that hoped to capitalise on GO!‘s huge success.
