Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee! – Overview trailer, footage, details, more

With just two weeks left until release, The Pokémon Company has revealed an overview trailer for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee! in Japan. It lasts nearly 6 minutes, and gives us a good look at what the game has to offer.

Here it is:

And here’s no less than 4 TV Commercials for the game:

Also, yesterday, the game was showcased during the latest Nintendo Treehouse Live presentation, right after the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct. We got some new tidbits from the presentation, including the name of two new moves for Pikachu and Eevee: Glitzy Glow and Baddy Bad.

A brand new feature was also revealed: the Fortune Teller, that helps you when you want a Pokémon of a specific Nature. You go talk to them, and you get to choose colours to increase / decrease: this determines the Nature of the Pokémon you will encounter in the wild for the rest of the day. Unfortunately, this is not free: you have to use some PokéDollars.

A feature from previous entries was also confirmed to make its comeback: the IV Judge. It appears on the stat screens, but it first needs to be unlocked.

Finally, we learned that the Mystery Box used to get Meltan can only be obtained once a week.

Here’s the recording of the segment dedicated to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee! from the Nintendo Treehouse Live presentation:

Next, here’s one more screenshot for the game:

If you want to learn more about the game, The Pokémon Company has shared an official interview with the developers, and more precisely Junichi Masuda (Director) and Kensaku Nabana (lead environment designer).

Here’s an excerpt: Mr. Masuda, you previously directed another pair of games set in the Kanto region with Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen on the Game Boy Advance. What lessons did you learn from that experience that you were able to bring to these games? And what different goals did you have in mind for the Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! video games?


Masuda: The base concept behind Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen was very different from what we are going for with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Back then, the primary focus was to creates games that could connect with Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, which were the other titles available on the Game Boy Advance. This time around, we’re defining what the modern living-room Pokémon RPG experience might be when you play on a home console on a big-screen TV. We’re starting from very different places, and as a result, I think you’ll see the direction is quite different.


At the same time, probably because of the popularity of Pokémon the Series, I think most Pokémon fans prefer the less scary, kind of cuter, and more inviting look that the animated series provides. So the feel of the world changed to be a little less scary, and the Pokémon started to look less monsterlike and more like the impression that people get from Pokémon today. We’re taking those ideas and continuing to implement them in these new games.

But that’s not all! Here’s the latest video for the game, showcasing Lavender Town:
