As a die-hard Pokémon fan who genuinely loves all of them: welcome! I really hope you enjoy the games. Let's Go is quite different to Sword in terms of design, but on the plus side, Sword is very accessible. A lot of the new Pokémon games have been going that way, and while it is very much a JRPG made by Fisher-Price, the monster designs are pretty uniformly wonderful.
At least from this weirdo's perspective, anyway. One of my favourites is Vanilluxe, aka "omg why is this literally an ice cream GAME FREAK IS SO LAZY WHY IS THIS NOT A RED FOX OR A DIFFERENT RED FOX". =]
