Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu / Eevee Buying Guide (Nintendo Switch)

Which edition to choose?


Right now, you can buy the brand-new Nintendo Switch games Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee. These titles are designed for newcomers to the franchise and for players who got their start with the mobile game Pokemon Go.

Developed by Game Freak, the makers of the core Pokemon titles, the Let's Go games aren't quite what you're used to. Instead of battling the monsters to catch them, you'll collect them by tossing Poke Balls at them, just like you do in Pokemon Go. You can even transfer your pocket monsters from Go to Let's Go via Bluetooth. We also know that the first 150 Pokemon as well as their Alolan forms from Sun and Moon would appear in the Let's Go titles.

This version of the game comes with a Poke Ball Plus accessory bundled in. Poke Ball Plus is basically a variation of a Joy-Con that has a wrist strap on one end and an analog stick on the other. It also contains a motion sensor, so you can "throw" it at Pokemon in the game world.
