Famitsu, the longest running video game magazine in Japan, has reviewed every single mainline Pokemon game since Pokemon Red and Green to the latest entry Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee.
Many have slammed Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee as a “game only for casuals” or a “game only for kids”. To see whether Pokemon Let’s GO is really as bad as it sounds, we refer to the score given by Famitsu reviewers for every single Pokemon game in history:
Pokemon Red/Green 8/7/7/7: 29
Pokemon Gold/Silver 9/9/8/8: 34
Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire 9/8/9/10: 36
Pokemon Emerald 9/8/8/9: 34
Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green: 9/8/8/8 33
Pokemon Diamond/Pearl 9/8/9/9: 35
Pokemon Platinum 9/9/9/9: 36
Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver 9/10/9/9: 37
Pokemon Black/White 10/10/10/10: 40
Pokemon Black 2/White 2 10/9/9/8: 37
Pokemon X/Y 10/10/10/9: 39
Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire 9/10/9/9: 37
Pokemon Sun/Moon 9/10/10/9: 38
Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon 9/9/9/9: 36
Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee 9/9/9/10: 37
Note: Four reviewers give a score out of 10. This gives us a combined score out of 40.
As we can tell from the scores, Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee’s combined review score of 37 makes it the 4th best reviewed mainline Pokemon title in history. It has a better score than Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, the original Pokemon Red/Green games, and even Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green.
