New details revealed for Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Eevee!
12 July 2018 – by Jack Taylor
Information about the gameplay and characters of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! has been revealed, as has a new gameplay trailer.
The new trailer showcases a number of new gameplay elements in the Let's Go! games, including the ability to customise clothing for the Pokémon Trainer and their partner Pikachu or Eevee, as well as hairstyle options for both Pokémon.
Players will also be able to select another Pokémon to join them when roaming out in the field; larger Pokémon like Arcanine and Onix can be ridden around, while some, like Nidoran, will seek out hidden items while following the trainer.
Gym battles return, with Pewter Gym's Brock and Cerulean Gym's Misty both seen in the trailer - and as with all trainer encounters in the games, the gyms will feature fully-fledged Pokémon battles.
As with the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue games, the new pair will feature version-exclusive Pokémon: the Pikachu version will feature the likes of Oddish, Sandshrew, and Growlithe; the Eevee version will include Bellsprout, Vulpix, and Meowth.
Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! launch on 16 November alongside the new Poké Ball Plus controller, which also doubles as a Pokémon GO Plus for players of Pokémon GO.
