Nintendo Announces "Pokemon Let's Go" RPG for Switch This November
May 30 2018
On top of this Pokemon can also be moved between the Pokemon GO mobile game, although it's not clear if this includes any sort of trading mechanic with fellow players.
If you need to get your fix now, today also marks the launch of a free-to-play game, Pokemon Quest, that you can download on the Nintendo eShop.
Alolan Exeggutor appears to have been added specifically to celebrate the announcement of Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee, which will feature Pokemon GO integration as previously rumored.
PokemonLet's Go will allow players to unlock a brand new Pokemon when they link their game to Pokemon Go.
The news about the new games was revealed at a special event in Japan, and also promised in a press release that another Pokemon game was still in the works. But at least we only have a few days' wait to find out, as the "shocking" news will finally be unveiled when the next episode of Oha Suta airs on May 31.
Let us know in the comments how excited you are about this confirmation. Remember that Pokemon Go's huge success was thanks to it being available for smartphones, and thus not requiring a proprietary piece of hardware. The new games (there's a Pikachu version and an Eevee version) are remakes of Pokemon Yellow geared specifically for casual fans. Likely to maintain the integrity of regional Pokemon in the mobile game. Instead of battling wild Pokemon, players can use motion controls to throw PokeBalls at it, complete with a shrinking target ring like in Pokemon Go. Players can also give presents to their Pokemon Go accounts. The same company is listed as the registrar of Pokemon.com as well.
