Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!

Nintendo debuted 40 minutes of gameplay from Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! during its E3 2018 Nintendo Treehouse live stream.

Following the reveal earlier today that Mew will be included with the Poke Ball Plus accessory that can be used with each game, Game Freak director Junichi Masuda revealed various gameplay elements during the live stream, including parts of the Viridian Forest and Pewter City, as well as Brock in the Pewter City Gym.

Other features  revealed today include:

  • GO Park – GO Park is enabled as a player progresses further in the game and will help players befriend Pokemon from Pokemon GO in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! This feature allows for Pokemon from Pokemon GO originally discovered in the Kanto region to be transferred to Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! These Pokemon will then need to be caught with a Poke Ball. The player can interact with them in a whole new way in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
  • Candy Jar – Players can use a variety of Candies to strengthen their Pokemon in a training system introduced in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Later in the game, players will be able to send their Pokemon to Professor Oak to receive these Candies.
  • Link Trading and Battles – Players will be able to trade and engage in Single and Double Battles with other players online and via local wireless communication. Trading and battling online will require an active Nintendo Switch Online membership, a paid service launching this September.

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are due out for Switch worldwide on November 16.
