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!
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
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!
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
