Yes, the rumors were true. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee have been officially confirmed for the Nintendo Switch. The game will release on November 16th, 2018. Local 2-player co-op play is included, as well as the ability to “swing your Joy-Con to toss a Poké Ball and catch the wild Pokémon that appear before you”. Indeed, Kanto is returning, and the game will be linked to Pokemon GO with a “Pokeball Plus” device that will launch with the games the same day. It can be used as a Joy-Con, and “good things may happen if you place one of your favorite Pokémon into the device and walk around with it in the real world”. If you caught any Kanto Pokemon in Pokemon GO, they can be brought over to Pokemon Let’s Go. They are based on Pokemon Yellow, which first released in Japan in 1998. A trailer was released, so we’ve included it down below.
