Pokémon trainers with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! will get a special treat in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

One of the new features in Ultimate is the addition of Spirits, characters that appear in Spirit Mode and grant new abilities and boosted stats to your main fighters. These Spirits consist mainly of Nintendo characters that didn’t make the cut to become fighers. For Nintendo fans who’ve already purchased Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee!, they’ll be able to start Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a Partner Pikachu or Partner Eevee Spirit.

Both Partner Pikachu and Partner Eevee are Support Spirits. That means that you’ll pick a fighter, add a Primary Spirit to boost your fighter’s attack power, and add Support Spirits to your Primary Spirit to grant even more extra abilities. From the screenshots Nintendo showed off, Partner Pikachu will slightly boost your attack and movement speed while undamaged, while Partner Eevee will greatly boost your attack, defense, and movement speed after eating.

These spirits will be granted based on the game detecting Let’s Go save data on the same Nintendo Switch used to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This means you’ll likely need to have played a little bit of the Let’s Go games, in addition to just having purchased them. While Pikachu players will start with Partner Pikachu and Eevee players will start with Partner Eevee, the Spirits aren’t exclusive. All players will be able to unlock both Pokémon by completing challenges. Those who own the Pokémon games will just get them a little earlier.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases on December 7th, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
