As the first software in the popular Pokemon series for the next-generation game console introduced by Nintendo in March past year, "Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu!" and "Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!" will be released, Pokemon Co. said. It's now not really clear if Nintendo will implement many relationship-building activities in Pokemon Let's Go similar to Pokemon-Amie, though at the very least you'll be able to explore Kanto alongside your cuddly pal of choice.
No other details on the game have been revealed at this time.
Two new titles in the Pocket Monster game series will be put on sale on November 16 for the Nintendo Switch console, an affiliate of Nintendo Co. said Wednesday.
Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are both based on Pokemon Yellow, the old Game Boy title that featured Pikachu as the player's starter Pokemon. While the Go Plus can last for weeks at a time, the Pokemon Pokeball Plus only lasts for 3 hours at a time. We'll update the article if that changes at any point down the line.
Functionality with Pokemon GO will be identical to that of the "Go Plus" device, though battery life will be much, much shorter.
Revealed by The Pokémon Company as part of a press conference held in Tokyo May 29, the new title is confirmed for Nintendo Switch and is slated for release in the second half of 2019. It's a controller for the games, but it's also a sort of container. It also has a gyroscope inside so users can affect the device's functionality via motion controls.
Pokemon Let's Go will have Pokemon Go connectivity, with players able to transfer the Pokemon they have captured in Pokemon Go to Pokemon Let's Go's Go Park.
