Each year the same question arises for Pokémon trainers all over the globe. Which edition of the latest RPG should we get? The choice gets infinitely harder this year with with Pokémon Let's Go. Utilizing the power of the Nintendo Switch, the impossible has happened, Pokémon managed to get even cuter!
What is Pokémon Let's Go?
Pokémon Let's Go is a remake of the beloved game Pokémon Yellow, which was released for the Gameboy in 1998. It's set in Pallet Town in the Kanto Region where the first 151 Pokémon are based. It's also where the Pokémon Anime character, Ash, started his adventure. So, all generations of players have the chance to go back and experience the Kanto Region again in this journey.
Similarly to the original Pokémon Yellow, your companion for your journey is a partner who is not too fond of their Poké Ball. Instead, they ride around with you on your shoulder or hat! They also have a dislike for evolution. So your starter Pikachu or Eevee will not evolve. Fear not, completionists! Any other Pikachu or Eevees you stumble upon during your journey will be able to evolve. So you can still catch 'em all!
What are the differences between Pokémon Let's Go Eevee & Pikachu?
