The Pokémon Company released another trailer for Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee showing off new gameplay and revealing more information on these Nintendo Switch games. There’s quite a bit to go through in this new trailer but take a look at the latest Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee gameplay below
In the brand new trailer, Jesse, James and Meowth of Team Rocket are confirmed to be involved in the story of Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. Team Rocket has a big part in all of the games that take place in the Kanto Region but the inclusion of the anime antagonists is unique to Pokémon Yellow , which Let’s Go is modeled after.
Another new aspect of Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee revealed in the trailer is how it appears players can confront Legendary Pokémon like Zapdos and Moltres in a traditional battle.
One of the major battle changes coming to Let’s Go is how wild Pokémon are caught. Instead of roaming through grass for random encounters, Pokémon are walking, crawling, swimming and flying in the overworld and only when your character touches them do you go to a capture attempt. Unlike the usual Pokémon games, your team is not used to weaken the wild Pokémon. Instead, like Pokémon Go, catching is based on how well you throw the Pokeball.
With the Legendary Pokémon, though, the new trailer shows Pikachu attacking them so it would seem a battle to weaken some of the most powerful Pokémon in the Kanto Region will be necessary.
Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee are set to release Nov. 16.
