Take a closer look at the upcoming Pokémon titles for Nintendo Switch
Return to Kanto with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
A bundle pack containing Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! and a Poké Ball Plus accessory will launch for Nintendo Switch on November 16th. Also available separately.
Experience a classic Pokémon journey in a whole new way with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! These two titles were created by GAME FREAK, the developers of the Pokémon core RPG titles. Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! introduce a new play style that anyone can enjoy, combined with the fun of collecting Pokémon.
Befriend your partner
At the start of your tale, you will encounter either Pikachu or Eevee, depending on which game version you choose. This Pikachu or Eevee will join you as your partner in your adventures, growing together with you on your journey.
Catching made easy
The practice of catching Pokémon has been changed dramatically from previous titles. Now you can use your Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con to toss a Poké Ball at your target with one hand, either by pressing a button or flicking your wrist. With fewer buttons and intuitive action, it’s never been simpler.
To really capture the Pokémon spirit of these titles, the new Poké Ball Plus accessory allows you to interact with the games like never before.
Play Pokémon together
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! also feature two-player simultaneous play. By sharing one of the Joy-Con controllers with a partner, two players can adventure at the same time. Throw Poké Balls together when you encounter Pokémon to boost your chances of successfully catching them, or have a friend lend a hand by joining you in battles against Trainers in your game.
Poké Ball Plus
The Poké Ball-shaped device can be used to play Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! in place of your Joy-Con. In addition to motion controls, the device lights up with a variety of colours, vibrates, and plays sounds.
When you try to catch a Pokémon, you’ll feel it moving inside its Poké Ball, and if your catch is successful, you’ll even hear the cry of the Pokémon you just caught. As a controller, the Poké Ball Plus will bring a new level of fun and immersion to these games.
But the Poké Ball Plus does more than just function as a controller. Take one of your favourite Pokémon from these games for a stroll in your Poké Ball Plus, and you can bring it with you as you go about your daily life in the real world. You can spend time with your Pokémon even when you’re not playing Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! — and you’ll be rewarded in various ways when you return them to your game.
Plus, the Poké Ball Plus works as a Pokémon GO Plus. That’s a lot of pluses for one little Poké Ball!
