Like every other Pokemon game in existence, Nintendo’s “Pokemon Let’s Go!” games are going to have a number of differences in them that will make each game a somewhat different experience from one another. These Pokemon Let’s Go differences include version-exclusive Pokemon and other details that we’ll be detailing here.
Version-exclusive Pokemon have been a thing since the very first Pokemon games, as in Pokemom Blue you could catch six Pokemon that you couldn’t find in Pokemon Red, and vice-versa, to encourage players to build friendships with other people who owned the game and trade Pokemon in the spirit of cooperation.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee are no exception. In Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu, you can capture Oddish, Sandshrew, and Growlithe, while in Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee you’ll be able to catch Vulpix, Bellsprout, and Meowth. While we don’t know if other exclusive Pokemon will be coming as part of the Pokemon Let’s Go differences, it’ll still encourage players to find other people to play the game with.
There’s still a lot of other details to go for both games too. Character customization from Pokemon Sun and Moon is back, and you’ll be able to customize your character’s looks and clothes to make them feel like you. You’ll also be able to play around with your Pikachu and Eevee in a similar way to the Pokemon Refresh mechanic, being able to play with, pet, feed, and even tickle your Pokemon.
The Pokemon Let’s Go games won’t be coming out until November, so there’s still plenty of time left before the games release, so we’ll be able to find out what other possible Pokemon Let’s Go differences there are deeper within the game.
The Pokemon Let’s Go games are designed to be for newcomers to the Pokemon series, so there likely won’t be too many differences between then and now, but we’ll be sure to give out more information as it develops. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee will be coming out on the Nintendo Switch.
