Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are the newest titles in the Pokémon series coming this fall to Nintendo Switch. Inspired by Pokémon Yellow, which was originally released on Nintendo’s Game Boy in 1999, these two titles are designed for players taking their first steps into the Pokémon video game world. Featuring an innovative connection to the popular Pokémon GO mobile game, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! promise plenty of enjoyment for both newcomers to the franchise and experienced players.
⦁ Pikachu and Eevee—Explore the iconic Kanto region like never before. You can embark on your adventure together with Pikachu as your partner in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or choose Eevee as your partner when you play Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
⦁ Play in a whole new way—Experience intuitive controls by using your Joy-Con to throw Poké Balls at wild Pokémon you encounter. Need some help? Your friend can grab a second Joy-Con to join in on the fun and even boost the chances of catching Pokémon for the first-ever collaborative gameplay in a Pokémon RPG.
⦁ Play even when on the GO—Connect your game for Nintendo Switch with the mobile game sensation Pokémon GO. Players can capture a Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region in Pokémon GO and transfer it into their Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! adventure.
⦁ Have a ball—Take your Pokémon journey to a whole new level with the Poké Ball Plus. More than just a controller, the Poké Ball Plus features motion controls, lights up with a variety of colors, vibrates, and plays sounds. When catching a Pokémon in the game, you will be able to feel it moving within the Poké Ball Plus. The Poké Ball Plus also works as a Pokémon GO Plus for those playing Pokémon GO. Using the Poké Ball Plus, you can bring one of your Pokémon from Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! with you as you explore the real world, even when you’re not playing the game. Additionally, you can receive a variety of rewards once Pokémon are returned to the Nintendo Switch games.
