Pokémon has come a long way from its inception on the original Game Boy. Gone are the days of black and white pixels on a green screen. Since we saw those rough-looking 3D Pokémon in Pokémon Snap, we've had to wait until 2013 to play a main series Pokémon game in proper 3D.

Now, a new graphical dawn has begun thanks to the recent release of Pokémon: Let's Go! Pikachu and Eevee, but how do the Pokémon from the Nintendo 3DS games hold up when compared to their HD versions?

Our friend HoodlumScrafty recently took an in-depth look at Pokémon in both Pokémon Alpha Sapphire as well as Pokémon: Let's Go! Pikachu and Eevee to compare and contrast the 'mon. One thing to note is that the Pokémon themselves have the same animation between the games. Regardless, it's incredible to see the Pokémon with the new beautiful graphics on the Nintendo Switch.
