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.
