Check out the new trailer.
The Pokemon Company International and Nintendo have revealed a new trailer, detailing some of the features coming to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games, including exclusive Pokémon moves and Secret Techniques.
Celadon City has been revealed as one of the locations in the games and is known as the “City of Rainbow Dreams.” The city boasts an arcade and a department store and is home to Erika, “the Nature-Loving Princess,” who specializes in Grass-type Pokemon.
Speaking of which, both Pikachu or Eevee can help make travel a whole lot easier with Secret Techniques. Used by the player’s partner Pokemon, you’ll be able to clear away trees using Chop Down, travel across water with Sea Skim and return to places that you’ve already explored using Sky Dash.
Additionally, the player’s partner Pikachu or Eevee will have access to exclusive moves that no other Pokémon can use, helping you overcome challenges. When your relationship with your partner reaches a certain level, the partner Pokemon will occasionally send a sign during battle that one of its exclusive moves can be used. Even if the partner Pokemon is not in the battle, it may still send a sign. If the player responds, the partner will bolster the Pokemon in battle by boosting its stats.
Two of Pikachu’s exclusive moves are Pika Papow and Splishy Splash. Pika Papow is also a partner power, so it’s performed when the partner sign appears during battle. The power of Pika Papow can increase depending on how strong the player’s bond is with their partner Pikachu. The Water-type move Splishy Splash can paralyze opponents.
Eevee’s exclusive moves include the partner power Veevee Volley as well as Bouncy Bubble, Buzzy Buzz, and Sizzly Slide. When Eevee uses Veevee Volley, its power can increase depending on Eevee’s relationship with the player. Bouncy Bubble, a Water-type move, will heal Eevee for half the damage dealt to the opponent. The Electric-type move Buzzy Buzz paralyzes the opponent. An opponent will always be left with the burned status condition if it is hit with Eevee’s Fire-type move, Sizzly Slide.
Players will be able to interact with their partner Pokemon when not in battle by selecting the Pikachu or Eevee icon on the main menu. Spending time with the partner Pokemon will improve the relationship with Pikachu or Eevee, which in turn allows you to receive in-game benefits.
And if that’s not enough to keep you going, a special bundle that includes a Nintendo Switch system, Pikachu- and Eevee-themed Joy-Con controllers, a pre-installed copy of Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, and a Poke Ball Plus is on its way! The front of the dock features Eevee and Pikachu, while the back of the console has silhouettes of both partner Pokémon.
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s go, Eevee! as well as the Pokemon Nintendo Switch bundle will be available on November 16, 2018.
