Nintendo went more in depth with Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee during their Nintendo Treehouse Live segment. There it was shown that catchingPokémon is the key to leveling up. This is a little different than how leveling up works in GO, and thankfully there’s a lot of things that work a little differently from the popular mobile game.

For one, Nintendo confirmed that any of your Pokémon can follow behind you. This was a popular feature in HeartGold and SoulSilver that many fans were hoping to see the return of. Wild Pokémon can also vary in size, and they will have an aura surrounding them that will let you know how large or small they are.

They also showed the game’s rival, who is incredibly different than Blue was in the original Red and Blue titles. The rival in this game is actually quite nice, and he’s easily scared of things.

They also showed off the first gym in Pewter City for a bit. Some gyms are said to be completely redesigned from the original games, but Pewter remained intact. However, they did add spectator seats that line the gym floor.

Bill Trinen ended the segment by confirming a bundle that includes the game and the Poké Ball accessory. This bundle will be available for $99.99.

What do you guys think of Let’s Go! so far? Are you excited for the game? Will you be waiting for the next core title next year? Let us know in the comments below!

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
