Earlier today, Pokemon Company International and Nintendo dropped new information on features in their upcoming Nintendo Switch games, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!.
Included in the games’ features is one that all Pokomon GOfans are going to enjoy. When the games release November 16, GO players will be able to bring the Pokemon they caught in the Kanto region into the Let’s Go games.
The uploaded Pokemon will appear in the GO Park complex in Fuchsia City, which is made up of 20 individual GO Parks. Up to 50 Pokemon can be kept in each of the individual parks. Players aren’t limited to uploading from their own GO account either. Pokemon can be shared by friends and family.
There is — kind of — a catch, however. In order to take the Pokemon with you on your journeys, you’ll have to catch them in the parks after they’ve been added to them.
To make things even more interesting, a special minigame has been added to the park system. When 25 of the same Pokemon species are in the GO Park complex, players will be able to play the game to win Candies that can be used to power up Pokmon and raise specific stats. Different candies affect different stats.
Launch day for both Pokmon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokmon: Let’s Go, Eevee! isn’t all that far off. In fact, it’s just two months until November 16, when both games are available exclusively on the Switch.
So, if there are some Kanto region Pokemon you’d like to pull in from GO, but don’t already have, you might want to get to work. And in the meantime, you can find more information on Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!on the games’ site.
Nintendo released a bevy of details surrounding the game, as well as a Pikachu- and Evee-themed Nintendo Switch at their latest Direct.
