If you haven’t started any adventures in these games yet, now you can find out what all the excitement is about. The free demo will let you explore Viridian Forest to catch wild Pokémon and battle Trainers with a randomly selected partner—either Pikachu or Eevee.
The content is slightly different from that of the full games, but you will be able to see just how much fun exploring Kanto can be on Nintendo Switch! Game data from the demo cannot be transferred to the full game.
Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu & Let’s Go, Eevee are the first mainline Pokémon games on the Nintendo Switch. These games are remakes of and so are games set in the Kanto Region following an altered version of the game’s story.
In the game, you get a specific starter Pokémon: Pikachu in Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee in Let’s Go Eevee. These partner Pokémon are with you always and cannot evolve. In addition to this, you can have other Pokémon of your team follow you in a manner akin to previous games.
These games also include a Brand new Pokemon which can also be sent to Pokemon Go
These games feature co-op locally as well as a new device like a Poké Ball called the Poke-Ball Plus that lets you take your Pokémon around with you in Pokémon GO and be used as a GO Plus. You can also send your Pokémon from GO to Pokemon Go Park to get them in Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee. They can be played with just one Joy-Con and capture is done by flicking the Joy-Con like Pokémon GO.
The game only features the first 151 Pokémon and some Alolan Form Pokémon. Wild Pokémon are no longer battled but rather just captured using similar mechanics to Pokémon GO. However, there are still battles with Trainers and Legendary Pokémon
The game will feature online functionality for battles and trades and requires a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play. It lacks the GTS, Wonder Trade and Battle Spot features of past Pokémon games.
