@Inoue79 Of the ones currently available, I definitely recommend either ”Let’s Go, Pikachu!” or ”Let’s Go, Eevee!” to first-time players. The gameplay is significantly more streamlined than other main series titles, and the story is a retelling of the one from the original Game Boy games, not to mention the endearing and heartwarming bond that develops between the player and their adorable partner Pikachu or Eevee.

Once you’ve gotten familiar with the base mechanics, there’s hours of content to be enjoyed in Sword or Shield; alternatively, if you’d like to delve into another classic gem from the franchise’s history, then Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl are amazing recreations of the very first games to be originally released on Nintendo DS.

Oh, and The Pokémon Company recently revealed the newest upcoming versions, Scarlet and Violet, to be released later this year (most likely November), the first fully open world games in the core series, and set in a new region based on Spain and Portugal. They’re sure to be a treat. Clefairy
