Earlier today, Game Freak and The Pokémon Company announced Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! for Nintendo Switch. These games are compatible with Pokémon Go, and a “Special Pokémon” that will become available in Pokémon Go when these titles are connected was teased at the end of the announcement trailer

Shortly after the game’s reveal, the Official Pokémon Twitter account confirmed that this Pokémon will be a brand new, never-before-seen one:


While no more details about this Pokémon were revealed, it could possibly be connected to the new mainline RPGs coming to Nintendo Switch next year. The franchise has teased Pokémon from future generations before. Both Ho-Oh and Togepi are some of the earliest examples, as they appeared in the anime before Pokémon Gold and Silver were even announced.

As an avid fan of the series, I am defintely looking forward to finding out what this new Pokémon is, espeically if it is teasing a future mainline title. In the meantime, I can play Pokémon Quest, a new free-to-play title that’s already available on Nintendo Switch.

Check out the part of the reveal trailer that teases this new Pokémon below. Both Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! can currently be pre-ordered on Amazon, and will be available for Nintendo Swtich on November 16.
