Several new details about the heavily anticipated Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! have been unveiled at E3!

The bulk of this information comes from Nintendo Tree House Live where Junichi Masuda and a panel played through the new Viridian Forest, as well as a small chunk of Pewter City. Be sure to check back throughout the day as more bits of information are revealed!

Story

  • Your rival is called Trace and is less confrontational than traditional rivals
  • The Pewter City Gym attendant won’t let you challenge the gym unless you have a Water or Grass-type Pokémon on your team
  • Helping the lady and her Slowpoke at the northwest corner of Pewter City will yield you a Big Pearl as a reward
  • GO Park will replace the Safari Zone in Fuchsia City

Mechanics

  • Your partner Pokémon will wag its tail when in the overworld when a hidden item is nearby
  • The strength of the Pokémon you capture determines the amount of experience you earn in Let’s Go – stronger Pokémon get more experience
  • Like in GO you can use a Razz Berry to make Pokémon easier to capture
  • All of your Party Pokémon gain experience from each capture
  • As you walk around the overworld each Pokémon will have an “aura” surrounding them – they indicate the Pokémon’s size. Red means big, blue means small
  • Stats and natures are featured in the game just like regular main series titles
  • To connect with other players over local wireless or the Internet you need to share a Link Code. The Link Code is incredibly similar to GO’s Raid Battle lobby code asking for a three “digit” code consisting of Pokémon sprites
  • The higher the CP of a Pokémon in Pokémon GO, the higher its level will be when transferred to Let’s Go!
  • There is a new mechanic where you can give your Pokémon special candy to strengthen them, and boost their stats
  • You get this special candy by sending Pokémon you’ve caught to Professor Oak
  • You capture Pokémon in GO Park simply by talking to them
  • Pokémon sent over to GO Park from Pokémon GO can’t be sent back!

Other

  • There will be a bundle for the Let’s Go! games that come with the Poké Ball Plus peripheral for $99.99
  • Each Poké Ball Plus purchased comes with a special Mew for Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee!
  • A Mew captured in Pokémon GO cannot be brought to Pokémon Let’s Go
  • Pikachu can learn Double Kick at Level 9

Gavin has never really been good at writing bios, nor does he think he ever will be. When he's not playing Pokemon he enjoys long walks on the beach and reading romantic novellas by candlelight. He's in his Sophomore year of his Marketing Major.
