Summary: 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.

AN EXCITING NEW POKÉMON RPG FOR NINTENDO SWITCH! Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! bring the experience of a classic Pokémon RPG to Nintendo Switch with gameplay that is easily approachable for newcomers to the series, but is also deep enough to keep veteran Trainers on their toes. These games also have two-player simultaneous play, so you can take the journey with a friend! And there’s a deep connection between Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon GO, so fans of the hit mobile game will find even more to enjoy. CATCH POKÉMON LIKE NEVER BEFORE! The Poké Ball Plus (sold separately) is a Poké Ball-shaped device that can be used to play Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! in place of your Joy-Con. You’ll be able to throw Poké Balls in-game with a flick of your wrist! In addition to motion controls, the device lights up with a variety of colours, vibrates, and plays sounds. With the Poké Ball Plus, you can also take one of your favourite Pokémon from these games for a stroll as you go about your daily life in the real world. The Poké Ball Plus even works as a Pokémon GO Plus when playing Pokémon GO.

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