After many months of speculation, Game Freak has officially unveiled Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. The new title will be a re-telling of PokÃ©mon Yellow with a twist.
Catching PokÃ©mon will be similar to that of PokÃ©mon GO. Trainers will physically throw PokÃ©balls at PokÃ©mon to catch them in a similar manner to GO. The game will be able to be played with just one JoyCon which will also allow for Co-Op. Gone are the wild battles of the old games, but trainer battles are still in the game. Pikachu and Eevee will be customizable for the PokÃ©Fashionistas.
In addition, there will be connectivity with the PokÃ©mon Go app. Allowing trainers to transfer PokÃ©mon and gifts between the two versions.
There will also be a special peripheral that will work with Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee; the PokÃ©ball Pro. It will act as a JoyCon allowing players to control the game, and it will also transfer PokÃ©mon to it to allow trainers to carry their favorite Pocket Monsters around with them. The PokÃ©ball Pro will retail at $50.
And finally, to those who are itching for a regular PokÃ©mon game, The official PokÃ©mon Twitter has stated that the game announced at last year’s E3 is still coming but will be released in the second half of 2019.
Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, along with the PokÃ©ball Pro, will be released on November 16th for the Nintendo Switch.
