Pros: Coming from the analog generation and a first-gen pokemon Red/Yellow player this game does alright as a remake of sorts. Story wise it's more or less similar. I particularly enjoyed the current gen visuals and the familiar soundtrack.
Cons: Having played Ultra Moon just before, the gameplay feels too easy/simplistic at times. Bear in mind this game is not intended to be a full featured pokemon game, as a lot of the game features and mechanics are stripped down to basics to accomodate and newbies to the franchise. Still good fun though.
