The game is great for a first time Pokémon gamer. Evee is actually very strong, it can learn four exclusive techniques that are normal, electric, water and fire. This is really a bonus compare to the Pikachu version that is only electric.
The Pokeball plus was a bit hard to connect to the game but it is easier to catch Pokémon with the ball compare to using the joy-con. The pokeball also looks cool. If you wanna collect all Pokémon you need the pokeball cause it gives you an exclusive Mew. I hope the pokeball is able to be used in other games later.
