Welcome to our groups, Dev! And I certainly hope you enjoy the games! I've been a long-time player, so I can't sign here, but still, if you've gotten any questions, there are some here happy to answer them for you.

I don't know a thing about Pokémon except what I see in Smash Bros. So I'm very excited to learn the battle system. I just hope it's not too hard to understand.

No it's easy. If you try competitive it gets a little tricky but not to much.

The type chart got rebalanced anyway so plenty of veterans will be confused too lol.

18 types, several hundreds attacks, couple hundred abilities, well over 700 pokemon...yeah piece of cake.

Pokemon is pretty straight forward, if a 9 year old can do it effectively(mostly), you can too.

Once you've been playing for a few days, you'll find it easy to memorise the type matchups. Basically, the battle system itself is very simple: use attacks, preferably super effective, to bring an opponent's HP down to zero or low enough to capture a wild Pokémon.

You'll actually have an easier time memorising the revised matchups than us. I'll still be confused by the old one.

Wow is that 700 pokemon in one game? Well I will start reading more about Pokémon before I buy this game.

Every game starts with the assumption that this is your first Pokemon game. Even Black2/White 2, which were direct sequels.

I've been playing since 1998, and I still love it. Glad you could join us!
