USGamer: Long story short, the return of random Pokemon encounters makes me sadder than a Rapidash with three broken legs. Essential disclaimer: Game Freak showed us an unfinished version of the game today, and for all we know the single random encounter we saw in the trailer is a placeholder. It seems unlikely, though. Pokemon Sword and Shield is already looking quite polished, and I imagine its mechanics are mostly in place. I hope I’m wrong about the random encounters, but I probably won’t be.
