With Nintendo E3 and Treehouse directs going down in LA, we have gotten some fresh news about the incoming Nintendo Switch Games Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee! Alongside this, there is an Unown event happening right now at the event, for an undetermined time.
For an ‘unown’ amount of time, the Unown characters of L-E-T-S-G-O-! will be appearing in LA around the Los Angeles’s Convention Center. This is the very first time that we have seen the ! Unown, as both ! and ? have been unreleased until now.
As well, there appears to be increased spawns of Pikachu and Eevee to go with the Unown, so if you are in the LA area and needed that elusive shiny Pikachu or a good Eevee for current or future Eeveelutions, now is a good time to go hunting!
We finally got some actual gameplay for these new games, and a few different things that we did not know before, were observed. We will go over a few of the more important ones that we noticed!
Pikachu was shown to learn the move ‘double kick’ during the gameplay of the LGPE demonstration, which is has never been able to learn previously. This could be huge, or it could be nothing, as Pokémon get new moves in games all of the time.
When you purchase the Pokeball Plus accessory, which doubles as a control for catching Pokémon in the Let’s Go games as well as functioning as a Pokémon Go +, you will be able to import a Mew into your Let’s Go copies. This does NOT mean that you get another Mew in Pokémon Go, as there has been a lot of confusion surrounding that topic.
We knew a little about Go Park, but now we have more information as to how it will work.
This was a big kicker when the public thought there would be no online features for Pokémon LGPE, but the confusion has been officially lifted! Online gameplay was featured in the demonstration, where you can either connect locally or through the internet to battle and trade! However, instead of using a Friend Code, like in the past, you instead are given a 3-Pokemon code, similar to when you make a private raid battle lobby in Pokémon Go. You communicate your code to the person you wish to connect with, then you are free to play.
And there we have it! Are you excited for these games? Let us know in the comments or join us on Discord to discuss the news!
