Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are paired Pokemon games developed by Game Freak for Nintendo Switch exclusively. Both are remakes of the classic Pokemon Yellow, taking place in the Kanto region, and featuring the original 151 Pokemon.
Depending on the game version, Pikachu or Eevee becomes the player’s partner, accompanying them through their adventure by riding atop their head (Eevee) or hanging off their shoulder (Pikachu). The partner can use special moves outside battles to traverse obstacles, and can be petted and fed by the player, strengthening their bond.
The game can be linked with Pokemon GO to transfer the collected Pokemon into Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Let’s Go, Eevee! – but not the other way round.
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! pre-orders on Pokémon Center will receive an exclusive plush key chain of Pikachu or Eevee, respectively. Available while supplies last.
Alternatively, make your reservation at GameStop to receive the double-sided Pokemon Let’s Go poster depicted above.
Poke Ball Plus Bundle ($99.99)
Both Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! can also be purchased bundled with a Poké Ball Plus Pack, costing $99.99 in total. The Poké Ball Plus is a Poké Ball-shaped controller that can be used to play either game in place of the Joy-Con. The device can also replace a Pokémon GO Plus. Separately, the Poké Ball Plus retails for $49.99.
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be out on November 16, 2018 for Nintendo Switch.
