„Pokémon: Let’s Go“ is the newest Pokémon role-playing game, and the first entry of the main series to arrive on the Nintendo Switch.
Launching this November, „Pokémon: Let’s Go“ presents a more interactive version of the Pokémon world, showing wild pokémon running around for the first time in a main-series game, and adding new ways for players to bond with their Pokémon partners.
„Let’s Go“ takes clear cues from the mobile game „Pokémon Go“ and appears to be more accessible for fans interested in the core Pokémon games. Veterans of the series may be disappointed by the limited number of Pokémon and some missing features, but „Pokémon: Let’s Go“ offers plenty of new gameplay improvements.
„Pokémon: Let’s Go“ takes place in the same region as ‚Pokémon Red & Blue,‘ with the original 151 pokémon.
„Pokémon: Let’s Go“ returns to the Kanto region from the first games in the series, „Pokémon Red & Blue.“ This means that the original 151 pokémon will also be making a return, too, along with their Alolan variations from „Pokémon Sun & Moon.“ Players will explore updated 3D versions of the same cities, forests and destinations from „Red & Blue,“ and battle against the classic gym leaders like Brock and Misty. The notorious Team Rocket will play the role of villain once more.
There are key differences between „Let’s Go Pikachu“ and „Let’s Go Eevee.“
While the gameplay and story of both versions of „Pokémon: Let’s Go“ is the same, there are a few key differences. Most obviously, the version of the game you pick will determine your partner Pokémon: Pikachu or Eevee. Each version of the game will also have some exclusive wild Pokémon, and the version will determine how frequently some types of Pokémon appear.
The confirmed exclusive Pokémon in „Let’s Go: Pikachu“ include Oddish, Sandshrew, and Growlithe. „Let’s Go Eevee“ has wild Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth. There are certainly more exclusive Pokémon to be found in both games. In order to catch all of the Pokémon in either game, you’ll need to trade with someone who has the opposite version to obtain the other set of exclusive Pokémon.
Bonding with your partner Pokémon will unlock special abilities, and you can customize their appearance.
Forming a bond with your Eevee or Pikachu is a key part of the game: Players will be able to customize their partner’s outfit, play with them and give them treats. Improving your friendship with your partner Pokémon will unlock special abilities that can be used both in and out of combat. Your partner will constantly follow you throughout the Pokémon world and will react when spoken to.
