With the November release date of Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu & Let’s Go, Eevee! fast approaching, the official Pokemon youtube channel has dropped a trailer giving fans a better look at the opening section of the game.
As well as introducing your oxymoronic “Friendly Rival” and Professor Oak, The Pokemon Company showcased the range of ridiculous pokemon you can ride including Onyx.
Further, you will be able to customize both your partner pokemon and your character with clothing items, including a ridiculously cute explorer outfit for Pikachu.
Trainers will also be able to style their Pokemon’s hair, meaning you can give Pikachu or Eevee the hip quiff they deserve.
As per every mainline Pokemon game, there are version exclusives for both Eevee and Pikachu that you will only be able to acquire through online trading.
In Pikachu, players will be able to catch Oddish, Growlithe and Sandshrew, whereas Eevee players will be able to catch Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth (That’s right).
As well as the new features coming to the game it’s been revealed that players will be able to battle famous gym leaders like Brock and Misty straight from the anime, as well as locking heads with Team Rocket.
An important point to note is that if players want to battle online or trade with friends they will have to purchase a subscription to Nintendo’s online service, launching in September.
Get ready for your trip back to Kanto when Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee launch on November 16th this year.
