Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee!
Interested in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee!? If yes, you can now download a demo from the Nintendo eShop!
This demo is the same one that was playable at various events around the world last year, and takes place in Viridian Forest. You can catch wild Pokémon, battle other trainers, and also play with your partner Pokémon. Unlike the main game, you can choose whether you get Pikachu or Eevee as partner Pokémon, by moving the stick up or left when the GameFreak logo appears on the screen.
You can download it from one of the following links:
- Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! (Nintendo) [Europe / North America / Japan]
- Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! (Nintendo) [Europe / North America / Japan]
A few notes about the download:
- the placement of items is not the same in the demo, compared to the full game
- you cannot transfer save data from the demo to the full game
- you cannot trade or battle against other players
- there’s only one demo, which is the same for both games.
Here’s a few screenshots:

Pokémon The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution
The latest issue of CoroCoro comes out this Friday, and the latest Pokémon movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, is featured in it. Unfortunately, it does not look like there’s anything really interesting in this particular issue, though we do get a good look at Mewtwo and Mew.
Here’s a scan from CoroCoro magazine:
Pokémon The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution coems out on July 12th in Japan.
Yesterday, a new feature was announced for Pokémon GO, called GO Snapshot. It allows you to take photos of any Pokémon you have in your Pokémon Storage. This feature will be added soon to the game, and will be available when looking at a specific Pokémon or accessing the camera in your Bag of items.
Here’s how it works:
- select a Pokémon
- tap on the screen to throw its Poké Ball to that spot
- move around that spot to find the best angle for your photo
- brush across your Pokémon to get its attention to make sure it’s facing you (if you want)
- take as many photos as you want
Once you’re finished, all the photos are saved automatically, and they can be shared via social netwrosk with a couple of quick taps.
The long-awaited Z-Powered Update for Pokémon Duel is now avaialble. You can find more details about it, along with the official patch notes, on this page!
Here’s the launch trailer:
