New Let’s Go Pikachu! & Eevee! Trailer Shows More of Kanto Region and Familiar Faces

Pokémon released a new trailer for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, revealing strong gym leaders, more of Kanto Region and the return of Jesse, James, and Team Rocket. The official website has been updated with new details.

  • Prepare for Mega Evolution!
    • Many Pokémon can evolve into new Pokémon, but were you aware that there is also “the Evolution that transcends Evolution”? It’s called Mega Evolution, and it’s a way to gain power beyond even what normal Evolution would grant. The might of Mega Evolution momentarily unleashes the energy within a Pokémon, and it can only be accomplished through a strong bond between a Pokémon and its Trainer.
    • In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, you can Mega Evolve certain Pokémon once per battle if you have a Key Stone and a Mega Stone that corresponds to that specific Pokémon. Deciding which Pokémon to Mega Evolve—and when—will be a critical factor in deciding who wins a battle.
  • Mega Venusaur
    • When Venusaur Mega Evolves into Mega Venusaur, the flower on its back grows larger and its legs become thicker and stronger to support its extra weight. Its Defense and Sp. Def greatly increase, allowing it to withstand just about any attack thrown at it.
  • Mega Charizard X / Y
    • Charizard can Mega Evolve into two forms: Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y. In each battle, choose the form that will give you the most advantage.
    • Mega Charizard Y retains its orange coloring, but it gains sharp horns, a longer tail, and larger wings. It can fly faster than a jet plane!
  • Mega Blastoise
    • Blastoise normally has two water cannons on its shell, but when it Mega Evolves, the two cannons merge into a single large cannon that uses the power of Mega Evolution to launch superpowerful blasts. Its Sp. Atk greatly increases as well, allowing for more aggressive tactics in battle.
  • Vermillion City
    • Vermilion City is the largest port city in the Kanto region. This charming seaside location is home to the Vermilion City Gym. Be on the lookout for the luxury cruise liner the S.S. Anne, which stops here once per year.
  • Lt. Surge
    • The tough-looking Lt. Surge is the Vermilion City Gym Leader. Known as the Lightning Lieutenant, he’s an expert on Electric-type Pokémon, including his partner Raichu. This cautious Gym Leader has set up his Gym in a way that prevents challengers from getting to him easily!
  • Team Rocket Brings Trouble!
    • During your travels through the Kanto region, you’re bound to cross paths with members of the sinister organization Team Rocket. This dastardly group plots to steal and use Pokémon for their own nefarious ends! You can easily recognize Team Rocket Grunts by their black uniforms and the large R on their chests.
    • You’ll need to fight Team Rocket on several occasions to hamper their plans. With enough determination, you may even discover the leader of this band of ruffians.
    • Although you’ll battle many Team Rocket Grunts throughout your adventure, a particular trio of troublemakers will repeatedly rear their mischievous heads. Jessie, James, and Meowth are frequent foes in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
    • These notable Team Rocket members like to send out their Poison-type Pokémon Ekans and Koffing, so make sure you’re prepared to fight!

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are launching on November 16 to the Nintendo Switch.

Every year, the townspeople gather to celebrate the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, who brings the wind that saved the town from destruction many years ago. The festival is a time for celebration, with a Pokémon Catching Race and a ceremonial flame burning brightly to summon Lugia. But when a series of incidents threatens not just the festival, but all the people and Pokémon who call the town home, it’s going to take more than just Ash and Pikachu to save the day. Will these people be able to put aside their differences and work together to rescue their town? Or will it all end in destruction?
