New Information on Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu! and Eevee!

Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let's Go, Eevee! releasing on 16th of November will have different Pokémon encounters as per part of the course. With Let's Go, Pikachu! getting: Oddish, Sandshrew and Growlithe. Whilst Let's Go, Eevee! will get: Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth. To note, your starter Pokémon will refuse to evolve and stay in its Pokéball.

Meet new and old returning faces. In the game, you will have a new "friendly" rival who looks to replace Red back from the Kanto region. Whilst not necessarily a negative given this game's main target audience, some fans may be dissapointed by this. Battling will still be a thing though, with local and online battles, the same is applied to trading.

But as part of Pokémon's growing trend, customisation will be a heavy emphasis. With the ability to customise yourself and your starter to your heart's content with hairstyles to boot, the ability to make your starter look like you will never be easier. Plus never explore alone, another tailing you behind, they'll be able to find hidden items for you. And if you feel tired, catch a ride on your Pokémon. Confirmed for riding is Onix and Arcanine from the trailer, but they do say "Ride Select Larger Pokémon" so let's see what else is in store.

Demoed previously, the game will contain the option to play with local co-op on the same game. Grabbing the second Joy-Con will allow a support trainer to join your adventure, making it easier to battle and catch Pokémon. Also, the Poké Ball Plus will allow you to play Let's Go and to bring your Pokémon with you to the real world. Purchased seperately, this will also be out on the 16th November. No further uses for the Poké Ball Plus are announced for the device's release.

Does this get you excited? Can't wait to relive old moments but on the Switch, comment below.
