These two titles introduce a new play style that anyone can jump in and enjoy, with plenty of fun adventure and Pokémon for all fans. The games are based on Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition, which first launched in Japan in 1998. Much has changed since then, and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! include many new modern game elements that a wide range of fans can appreciate. The games bring the intuitiveness of catching Pokémon that we've seen in Pokémon GO to a familiar Pokémon adventure, enhanced by an updated graphic style. These titles are the first that Mr. Masuda is directing himself since Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, the famous Pikachu will travel alongside the main character. And in Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, the adorable Eevee will be your partner. Your partner Pokémon doesn't go back in its Poké Ball when it's not battling. Instead, it rests on your shoulder or your head, and occasionally wanders around to help you out.
The practice of catching Pokémon will change 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 just by flicking your wrist. With fewer buttons and intuitive action, it's never been simpler.
Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! also feature two-player simultaneous play. Each player uses one Joy-Con to explore together. When they cooperate on something, such as catching Pokémon or challenging Trainer battles, the task becomes even easier.
To really capture the Pokémon spirit of these titles, a new accessory was also unveiled at the show by Nintendo's Shinya Takahashi. The Poké Ball Plus is a Poké Ball-shaped controller that you can use to play Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! instead of the Joy-Con. The Poké Ball Plus is so much more than that, though. You can use it to carry around your partner Pokémon—or any other one you catch—in the real world when you're not playing. Mr. Takahashi promised more details on the incentives for this feature down the road.
Mr. Nomura of Niantic took the stage next to expand even further on the deep connection between Pokémon GO and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! The Poke Ball Plus is fully compatible with Pokémon GO, sharing the same features as the Pokémon GO Plus. Also, Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region that you have caught in Pokémon GO can be brought into Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! And Niantic CEO John Hanke promised via a video presentation that even more secrets about this connection functionality will be revealed soon. Mr. Hanke finished with one last surprise for fans: right now, Alolan Exeggutor is available to catch in Pokémon GO.
Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, along with the Poké Ball Plus, are scheduled to be released worldwide on November 16, 2018.
