Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee! Nintendo Switch 2018 Release Date REVEALED

Adjust Comment Print

The games seem to be spiritual remakes of the classic Pokemon Yellow - where the protagonist is given Pikachu as their starter Pokemon and their rival an Eevee - and also incorporate aspects of the wildly popular mobile game, Pokemon Go. Exeggutor has already been announced, with the Alolan variation appearing in Pokemon GO from today. In the time since Serebii first shared that tweet, Oha Suta's website has been updated to remove those statements you see above, and it now only says that we'll get a segment "full of Pokemon information". In this case, it is no longer necessary to battle and weaken a Pokemon before capturing it. They're created to capitalize on the blockbuster success of the Pokemon Go smartphone game and a solid year of sales for the Switch tablet-hybrid gaming machine. Attract various Kanto Region Pokémon to your base camp by cooking up dishes made with collected ingredients! In keeping with the Kanto theme, the games include the original 151 Pokemon as well as their Alolan forms from Sun and Moon. This hints towards the return of being able to choose a Pokemon to follow you while you go about your business - an exceptionally cute and fan-favourite feature from Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver. That said, there is no option to transfer in the opposite direction.

The next entry in the series was originally announced during the Nintendo Spotlight at E3 2017, with Pokemon CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara confirming Game Freak had begun development. While playing using one Joy-Con, another player can join as a support character when in open areas or a battle by shaking the second Joy-Con.
