Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee Details Pokemon Go Transfers, Legendary Pokemon | Gaming News
New details have emerged regarding the Pokémon GO Park in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! and now we know more about Pokémon GO transfers, the Candy system, Legendary Pokémon battles, and much more.
In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, trainers will be able to link their Pokémon GO accounts and transfer Pokémon from the Kanto (Generation 1) region to the new Nintendo Switch title.
These Pokémon will arrive in the GO Park complex that holds 20 individual GO Parks that can hold up to 50 Pokémon each. To take these Pokémon with you on your adventure, you will need to find them in the GO Park complex and capture them.
Even though you will not be able to transfer Pokémon back to Pokémon GO, you will be able to connect multiple Pokémon GO accounts to Let’s Go, Pikachu! and/or Let’s Go, Eevee! to help complete your Pokédex.
Once 25 of a particular Pokémon are in the Pokémon GO complex, you will be able to play a minigame that involves gathering up and leading those Pokémon to a specific point and if you win you will earn Candies that will allow you to power up your Pokémon.
There are different types of Candy and they focus on improving a specific stat, such as Attack, Speed, or Defense. In addition to the games in GO Park complex Play Yard, you will be able to earn candies by transferring your Pokémon to Professor Oak or walking with them with the real-life Poké Ball Plus device.
As for Legendary Pokémon, including Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, trainers will have to battle these Pokémon before they have a chance to catch them.
At the end of the above video, Mew, who will be given as a bonus to those who purchase the Poké Ball Plus, is shown and is said to be able to learn “almost any move!”
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! will both be released for the Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018, and will arrive with a special edition Nintendo Switch bundle that includes Pikachu and Eevee engraved on the back, yellow and brown Joy-Cons, and a Switch dock that has both Pokémon on the front.
