In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, your partner Pikachu will always be by your side, growing and learning as you go. Pikachu can learn Secret Techniques to use outside of battle, like Chop Down, Sky Dash and Sea Skim to reach new places, as well as partner powers to use in battle!
The more time you spend with your partner, the more it’ll grow to love you! You can pet, feed, tickle and dress up your partner with different outfits, accessories and hairstyles.
You’re bound to meet many Pokémon wandering throughout the Kanto region! Simply approach a Pokémon and you’ll have a chance to catch it – just use the motion controls of the Joy-Con or Poké Ball Plus accessory (sold separately) to throw a Poké Ball!
Be prepared! When a Trainer sees you, it’s time for battle! Battles are a great way to train your Pokémon and grow closer to them. Meanwhile, Gyms are places for Trainers to test their skill in battle. Defeating a Gym Leader will earn a Trainer a Gym Badge.
You can also trade with friends nearby or around the world to complete your Pokédex. Oddish, Sandshrew and Growlithe only appear in the wild in Let’s Go, Pikachu!, while Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth only appear in the wild in Let’s Go, Eevee!
The Kanto region is a varied locale, filled with small towns, cities, mountains, rivers, forests, and seas. There is a wide variety of places to explore and plenty of Pokémon to be found.
Team Rocket is here
During your travels through the Kanto region, you’re bound to cross paths with members of the sinister organisation Team Rocket. This dastardly group plots to steal and use Pokémon for their own nefarious ends!
