Pokemon Let’s Go Version Exclusive Pokemon: which Pokemon can only be found in the Pikachu and Eevee-themed games

By Alex Donaldson, Friday, 16 November 2018 08:21 GMT

While Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee are a departure from some traditional aspects of Pokemon adventures, one classic element of the older games remains unchanged: version-exclusive Pokemon. Here’s a full list of which Pokemon are only found in both games – and where to catch them.

The concept behind version exclusive Pokemon is pretty simple: Pokemon is about talking to and playing with others as much as it is your solo journey to become a Pokemon Master, and as such the developers want players to meet up with and trade with other players in order to catch ’em all. Pokemon has been like this since the nineties, and it’s not going to stop any time soon.

Both Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee offer up eleven version exclusive Pokemon that can only be caught in that version of the game – and surprisingly, this doesn’t include the starter species Pikachu and Eevee, who can actually be caught separately in both games. It is worth noting that Pikachu and Eevee found in the wild aren’t identical to your partner Pokemon, however – your partner is special, so can learn an expanded move set and other unique abilities.

For the other exclusive Pokemon, however, you’ll need to either need to trade with somebody who has the other version or transfer these Pokemon over from Pokemon Go in order to catch ’em all. Here, we’re going to list the version exclusives, plus exactly where to catch them in each game alongside other useful information. Let’s get to it:
