Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee were released into the wild last week as the first Pokemon games for the Nintendo Switch.
Based on Pokemon Yellow’s story, Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee has you travelling around the Kanto region with some old friends in a beautiful 3D Pokemon world fans have been dreaming about for years.
The game features a few elements from the mobile game Pokemon GO and allows you to transfer Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Let’s Go.
Pokemon Let’s Go: Pokemon
- Gift Pokemon from NPCs
- Where to find Rare Pokemon
- Kanto starter Pokemon: Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle

Just like in the original games, these NPCs will give you their Pokemon to keep forever.
