Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu And Eevee’s Legendary Pokemon Encounters Work A Little Differently

The Pokemon Company has shared another new trailer for Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eevee. While the last video focused on Celadon City and some of the new attacks your partner Pokemon can learn, the one above provides another look at the Go Park–the facility where you’ll transfer monsters from Pokemon Go–as well as the Legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.

As hinted at in a previous trailer, while the Let’s Go games don’t feature wild Pokemon battles, you will be able to fight the Legendary birds. Just as in Pokemon Go, however, you’ll only earn a chance to capture them if you first defeat them in battle. There appears to be another caveat; in the screenshot below, you can see a timer in the upper lefthand corner of the screen, suggesting you’ll only have a set amount of time to defeat the Legendary birds.

The trailer also shows off more of the Go Park. As previously revealed, this facility replaces the Safari Zone in Fuchsia City. Any Pokemon you transfer over from Pokemon Go will appear here, and you’ll be able to recapture them and add them to your team. If you store 25 of a particular species in the Park, you’ll also be able to play a minigame that rewards you with Candies, which you can then use to power up your Pokemon.

Finally, the trailer provides our first look at Alolan forms in Let’s Go. These are tropical variants of familiar Pokemon native to the Alola region in Sun and Moon, meaning they can’t be found in the wild in Kanto. However, you can transfer any Alolan forms that you’ve obtained in Pokemon Go to Let’s Go. The Pokemon Company says you will also be able to trade for the Alolan variants with certain NPCs you’ll encounter on your adventure.

Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eevee launch on Nintendo Switch on November 16. That same day, Nintendo will also release Pikachu and Eevee-themed Switch console bundles, which come with a digital copy of the game, the Poke Ball Plus, Pikachu and Eevee-colored Joy-Cons, and a Switch dock with Pikachu and Eevee designs.
