Okay everybody, the day has arrived, its official; Pokemon will arrive on the Nintendo Switch in November of this year. In a surprise announcement made by Nintendo they revealed the title of the game(s) as well as a trailer (which can be seen below). Pokemon Lets GO: Pikachu & Pokemon Lets Go: Eevee will hit our shelves November 16th.
The games are re-imagined versions of Pokemon Yellow which originally came out in 1998/99. The games also have two-player simultaneous play, as well as a deep connection with Pokémon GO, so fans of the hit mobile game will find even more to enjoy.
Return to the Kanto region and experience a classic Pokémon journey in a whole new way with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! on the Nintendo Switch! Coming November 16, 2018: https://t.co/kXLdxUMjjA #PokemonLetsGo pic.twitter.com/EKzQsTbDuE

Each game returns players to Pallet Town, where you can once again begin your journey to become a Pokémon master; keep in mind only the original 151 Pokémon will be available. Catching your favourite Pokemon requires use of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers, or the all new Poke Ball Plus.
“With the Poké Ball Plus, you can also take one of your favourite Pokémon from these games for a stroll as you go about your daily life in the real world. The Poké Ball Plus even works as a Pokémon GO Plus when playing Pokémon GO.“
Depending on which game you buy will determine who your partner in crime is and will tag along with you on your journey. I think i’ll be buying both!
I am so excited for this game, and the fact it will be coming out this year is too much to handle. I can easily see this being game of the year, move along Kratos.
Let us know how excited you are in the comments below.
