The Internet Reacts To Pokémon On Switch

Last night Nintendo announced Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee, two new Pokémon games coming to Switch in November. They may not be what people were expecting or hoping for, but any time there's new Pokémon games, the internet is gonna freak out.

Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee are both based on Pokémon Yellow, where you had a Pikachu that followed you around outside of its Poké Ball. In this upcoming game, meant for newer players more familiar with Pokémon Go, either Pikachu or Eevee will join you on an adventure through the Kanto region, collecting the original 151 Pokémon. Given the popularity of these two Pokémon, people are excited.

Some people noticed some cool things in the trailer, like Pokémon that follow behind your trainer and ones you can ride around the map. Other fans were hoping for a few other series callbacks to Kanto. Others still knew a good joke setup when they saw one.

Not everyone is overjoyed with the new game, but fans who want a new core game on the Switch will be getting on in 2019. As for me, I know where I stand on the matter:

    If your eevee evolves into one of its many heavier variations, do you start getting neck damage, or does it trot along beside you?

      in the original if you tried to force evolve your pikachu he would refuse to evolve, if you traded him out with a different pikachu or traded it to another trainer and then back it would stop following you. likely in this version they will also disable evolution for the starters.

      I've heard you cannot evolve them, which takes away the entire point of having an Eevee.

        You take that back! You have at least one unevolved Eevee. Then you breed the rest for all the evolutions >_>

        =P

    I am so going to get Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu for the Nintendo Switch as for connecting the Nintendo Switch to the Pokemon Go app on your smartphone developed by Niantic Labs that's out. I'm so not downloading the Pokemon Go app because it's going to use up all of my data. I'm so definitely all in for Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu on the Nintendo Switch and the Pokeball Plus I am so wanting to get that Pokeball Plus so I can take my Pokemon with me whenever I'm out and about. But connecting the Nintendo Switch to Niantic Labs Pokemon Go app not worth my cup of tea.
