The Pokémon Company and Game Freak have revealed a few more customization options that will be available to trainers in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Plus, we now know the Pokémon that will be exclusive to each of the Nintendo Switch games.
In a new trailer for the upcoming RPG, it was announced that players will have the ability to give Pikachu and Eevee different hairdos, including some impressive bangs on the Normal-type Pokémon or a yellow curl on the Electric-type mascot. The creatures and trainer characters will even get different outfits, such as a safari romper, that can be mixed and matched. Check out the clip below to see the different clothing options.
Also teased was more of the Kanto region and the challenges that will be awaiting trainers, including a new rival and the return of Gym leaders Brock and Misty from the original Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen games. It was also confirmed that trading and battling will be available locally or online, but as The Pokémon Company previously announced, a paid subscription to the Nintendo Switch Online service will be required for the online features.
Apart from a different starter Pokémon in each of the titles, it appears there will also be Pokémon exclusive to the Pikachu and Eevee editions. Oddish, Sandshrew, and Growlithe will only be obtainable in Let’s Go, Pikachu, while players with Let’s Go, Eevee will have the chance to catch Bellsprout, Vulpix, and Meowth. Of course, trainers will be able to nab the exclusives via trading or by bringing them over from Niantic’s mobile game, Pokémon Go.
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are set to launch for Nintendo Switch on November 16th.
