Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee's Latest Trailer Focuses on the Three Key Points of a Pokémon Adventure

The new Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee trailer is a joyous trip through Kanto filled with memorable faces and classic evolutions.

The latest entries in the iconic monster battling series Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and its counterpart Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! has recently landed on Nintendo Switch bringing with them a wave of nostalgia and adventure. Both of these elements have been perfectly captured in the games’ post-release trailer.

The trailer opens up with both of the titles’ trainers spending time with their personal pokémon companions. As the female trainer reaches for a pokéball in Professor Oak’s laboratory, we are whisked away on a journey through the many great things that the Kanto region has to offer as we learn about the three important elements in the lives of trainers and pokémon alike.

Firstly, we see a large number of pokémon on display spanning from enormous rock types such as Onix to cheeky ghost type; Haunter and the ever adorable Snorlax. This section of the video concentrates on the fun of catching pokémon in the wild; a key attribute of the long-running franchise.

Next up is the art of training the newly caught pokémon to level them up and make them stronger. We see the fruits of a trainer’s labor here as a frail little Magikarp evolves into a ferocious Gyarados. The evolutions continue with a Growlithe, Exeggcute, and even an Alalon variation of Vulpix growing into their superior forms.

Finally, we come to battling. The battle system in the incredibly popular Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! revolves around each creature’s typing, which makes them strong against various attacks but weak to others. Here we see trainers taking on everyone from local gym leaders to the nefarious Team Rocket.

Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are available now exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Whether you’d like to journey alongside Pikachu or Eevee, each of these titles can be purchased via Amazon. These remakes of the original generation are also compatible with the mobile app Pokémon Go. Keep an eye on Dualshockers for our upcoming full review which will be arriving soon.
