Nintendo sends thank-you email to Pokemon: Let's Go players in Japan, mentions dev team size, challenges during development, and more

Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are sending out emails to Pokemon: Let's Go players in Japan to thank them for playing. The message included with the email comes from director Junichi Masuda. Here's what Masuda has to say in his note to fans.

- Masuda starts off by asking players how their adventure going
- he then asks fans if they're enjoying their time with Pikachu/Eevee
- Masuda asks players if they've tried changing their partner Pokemon’s hairstyle
- Masuda says there were roughly 100 dev team members working on the game
- the team faced many difficulties working on their game
- the result of these difficulties was a game that lets players be close with their Pokemon
- Masuda is happy to see players enjoying themselves with the new Poke Ball Plus and multiplayer features


I don't resent this game like some people do, but I will say that I'm glad it's released and behind us so that we can now focus on getting excited for the REAL next steps in this franchise.

I would like say a big thank you back to Junichi Masuda for what has been my most enjoyable Pokemon playthrough in years. Hopefully the next game blends the best of Lets Go and the traditional series.
