Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee!
Today, The Pokémon Company revealed a long commercial for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee!, featuring some new footage for the game. We get to see our first look at Team Rocket, and more precisely Jessie and James. We also get to see Zapdos, with what seems to be a battle against it. However, it’s not clear whether this is an actual battle, or just a cutscene.
Here’s the commercial for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee!:
And here’s a screenshot with Jessie, James, and Meowth:
Also, it’s been announced that digital pre-orders for the game will go live on October 22nd. You will need 4.6GB of free space to download each game.
Pokémon The Movie
Today, the very first details about the next Pokémon movie, opening in theatres next year, have been revealed. The short teaser shown at the end of the latest movie, Pokémon: Everyone’s Story, reveals that the next one will be called “Mewtwo Stikes Back Evolution”. The very start of the movie can be seen in 3DCG during that teaser, but it’s not clear if that’s the case of the whole thing or not.
Hopefully, The Pokémon Company uploads this teaser trailer on YouTube sooner rather than later!
A new Queen’s Cup event went live yesterday, and runs until July 17th. It allows you to get Alolan Vulpix (R) and Alolan Ninetales (EX) as rewards.
