Pokémon: Let's Go Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Charming World

Gameplay Refresh

Motion Controls

Pokémon: Let's Go isn't your typical Pokemon game; turn-based combat has been swapped out for the "Go-style" mechanics popularized in Pokemon Go. However, a nostalgic and charming world have won the critics over.

The perfect introduction to ‘proper' Pokémon games for GO players but also an enjoyably nostalgic remake for existing pokéfans.

A fun stroll down memory lane for hardcore fans, and a strong entry point to the series for newcomers

A beautiful reimagining of one of the series' most beloved adventures.

Pokemon Let's Go is engineered to let youngsters play along with their parents, but there's a lot here for veterans to enjoy, too. It's relentlessly cute and colorful, and while the challenge level won't blister your skin, the new Coach Trainers will keep you hopping. We're still not sure about the Go-style method of catching wild Pokemon, but Pokemon Let's Go's ability to link-up to Niantic's app offers a quick and easy way to fill out your PokeDex. Game Freak is clearly getting the hang of the Switch, so bring on Gen VIII!
