Pokemon: Let's Go released
A duo of games bring the franchise to Nintendo Switch for the first time
Nintendo has announced that Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games for the Nintendo Switch system are now available.
The Poké Ball Plus accessory – also available today – replicates the look and feel of a real-life Poké Ball. Control your entire adventure using just Poké Ball Plus and make a gentle throwing motion to capture Pokémon. You can even put a Pokémon into the Poké Ball Plus accessory and take it on a stroll in the real world to level it up and receive in-game rewards. In addition, every Poké Ball Plus contains the Mythical Pokémon Mew.
In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, you take on the role of a Pokémon Trainer as you set off on an adventure with Pikachu or Eevee, depending on which version you play. On your journey, you will visit multiple areas throughout the Kanto region, meet up with iconic characters and encounter various types of Pokémon – the true-to-size versions of these Pokémon even roam around the world.
You can also share your journey with a friend as you capture Pokémon and battle Pokémon Trainers together on one Nintendo Switch system in TV mode or Tabletop mode using two Joy-Con controllers or two Poké Ball Plus accessories – or one of each. You can battle and trade Pokémon directly with them via local wireless or online.
