Hey everyone, confirmed that Pokémon Let's Go is coming to the Switch, which is connected to Pokémon Go, and like the mainline games, comes with two versions, Pikachu and Eevee, which are the starter pokemon you have to start off with.  Also stated, that there is still a mainline, core RPG coming out in 2019.  These two games aren't the ones GameFreak has been teasing the public with, more like an extension, using these two as a way to bring in new audiences, young and old, into the series.

The graphics look like something from Pokémon Go, and while not much else has been given, except the game, like Pokémon Go, has it's own little external device like the Pokémon Go Plus, a Pokeball Plus.  The release date is for November 16 of this year, and there is already a website for it, check it out.

There were some really exciting things about this that were announced

 

I'm really excited for the two player aspect! Plus, the Poké Ball Plus is one of the coolest things - you use it to capture in-game, can use it in Pokémon GO, and apparently if you carry it around with you, "you’ll be rewarded in various ways when you return them to your game."

 

Which version will everyone choose? Pikachu or Eevee?

Tough choice, although if it's like Pokémon Yellow any, then chances are, the Pikachu you get doesn't evolve.  With Eevee, would be a really tough choice of what you would like it to evolve into, since there are about 8 choices.  One thing curious on, is how they would approach the Alolan Pokémon, and how you get them, along with the ones that evolves into one.

Hey there, GrewupGeek!

 

Thanks for the announcement. I think the Pokeball is pretty cool. I am looking forward to November!

I find the official description of the Pokeball hilarious.   "Hey, hey!  Want to hear something totally radical?  The device 'lights up in a variety of colors!'  And guess what?  It 'plays sounds,' too!  I can't believe they're being this specific- the info drops are usually sooo vague.

 

:P

The truth waits for no one.  That which you refuse to see, TPCi, slips past you.  The chat function was never your problem, yet through your blindness, you have made it one.

Maybe once additional details are released, it'll be an easier decision. I think I will probably be waiting at least a few weeks before picking up the game. I'm certain there will be those who pick up both versions!

 

I know that right now you can get Alolan Exeggutor in Pokémon GO, and you will be able to transfer Pokémon from GO to Let's Go. Maybe that's how it will be done?

This is not one of the main games, but a new game for a new target. The main games will be released in 2019.
But the concept is no less interesting and revives interest in Pokémon Go.

Hello godson00869,

 

That is a good point. We can also expect a main game next year! So many reasons to be excited!

I'm gonna choose Eevee. It's probably not going to be capable of evolving, like the Pikachu from Pokemon Yellow, which, if anything, is a good thing for me.

I'm holding off on my decision, but I think I am leaning toward Eevee.

 

 

I know that it's very tempting to get the Poké Ball Plus to get Mew! (News story https://www.pokemon....oke-ball-plus/)
