The Pokemon Let's Go Launch Trailer is a Wonderful Recreation of the Show's Original Intro

Oh you're my best friend in a world we must defend~

Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are out now and the Pokemon Company just released a launch trailer aimed directly at our nostalgia center.

Some cunning creative over at the Pokemon Company re-created the original North Americna opening to the Pokemon anime using Pokemon Let's Go. It's not 1:1 but each shot from the anime intro is mirrored in Let's Go as closely as possible to the original and I'd be lying if I didn't freak out a little when I realized what was happening. Here's the trailer below:

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are sorta-remakes of the original Pokemon Red and Blue but with more features, a gameplay hybrid with Pokemon Go, and an obvious visual enhancement. The enhancements can be best summarized by how you can ride any Pokemon in Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee, which is basically a dream come true.
