Nintendo has unveiled new details on Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee. We now have more details on how Candy is going to work compared to Pokemon GO. We also found out more about how transferring Pokemon from your Pokemon GO account into Pokemon Let’s Go is going to work, as well as how you’ll be catching Legendary Pokemon, like Zapdos, Moltres, and Articuno.
Let’s start with linking Pokemon Let’s Go and Pokemon GO. You’ll be able to transfer Kanto Pokemon from your Pokemon GO account into your Pokemon Let’s Go via Bluetooth. This includes Alolan forms, too. Best of all, this isn’t limited to just one account; there’s no limit on how many accounts you can transfer from. Transferred Pokemon will go to the GO Park complex in Fuchsia City. There are 20 Go Parks in one complex, each storing up to 50 Pokemon. Once their transferred, you’ll have to go and catch them in the Park. When you have 25 of the same species in the Complex, you can start playing minigames with them in order to earn Candies. Speaking of…
Next up, Candies. They are going to work differently than in Pokemon GO. In Pokemon Let’s Go, you’ll use Candies to level up your Pokemon. They level up after battle, yes, but Candies are a great way to keep leveling. You can earn Candies in several different ways. For example, like in Pokemon GO, you can transfer Pokemon to Professor Oak. You can also complete minigames in the Play Yard of the GO park, or walk your Pokemon with the Poké Ball Plus (sold separately). There will be several different types of Candies, each of which will affect a different attribute of your Pokemon, such as Attack, Defense, Speed, etc.
Last, but not least, Pokemon Let’s Go is, of course, going to have Legendary Pokemon. There will be several of them in this version of Kanto, including Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, the Legendary Birds. The process of catching them is going to be slightly different than the rest. You’ll have to defeat them in battle first to even earn the chance to capture them. And, for the most dedicated trainers, even Mew will be in there somewhere. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee is coming in November 16th, 2018. Until then, you can check out the new trailer below.
