For anyone of a certain age, everything about the original Pokémon games ooze with a level of nostalgia that is surely dangerous to the human mind. As if to have a poke at this, Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! have been confirmed to take place in the same region as the original titles, and this video shows that in style.
Uploaded by the folks over at Nintendo Wire, this side-by-side comparison gives us a look at how places such as Cerulean City, various routes, the Cycling Road, Mt. Moon, and more have been fully re-imagined for the new titles. As you can see, every area is immediately recognisable, with bushes, signs, and pavement patterns being almost identical between the new games and Pokémon Yellow.
It's a nice nod to the early games, and potentially allows players to explore the region in the way they likely imagined it to look in their heads all those years ago.
Now then, how many more times can we play our old copy of Pokémon Yellow before it breaks on us?
