Both Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee will be released on the 16th of November on Switch.
"Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee will have online play functionality". It turns out that the gentle tossing motion isn't just recommended.it's required to catch Pokemon in the upcoming Pokemon games.
The Pokemon Company also told the site that the region of Johto will not be a bonus feature in the game (as it was back in Gold and Silver).
Pokemon: Let's Go borrowed at least a portion of the catch controls from Pokemon Go, which required players to use their phone's touch screen to catch a Pokemon. While the games will still largely be playable without one, there's reason for Pokemon fanatics to consider paying Nintendo's $20 asking price for Switch Online.
While the jury is still out on Let's Go as a whole, it's clear that as a spinoff of sorts, it's not going to be as comprehensive as a mainline entry.
It notes that while the two Pokemon Let's Go titles won't have features like the Global Trade System, Wonder Trade, or Battle Spot - which have all been offered by other modern Pokemon titles - players will still be able to battle and trade with one another.
