Mega Evolution And More Revealed For Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu And Eevee

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced new details about Mega Evolution and much more in the highly anticipated Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games, releasing later this year on the Nintendo Switch™ system. Both games are designed for players taking their first steps into the Pokémon video game world as well as longtime fans wanting a new way to play Pokémon.

Don’t Just Evolve—Mega Evolve

In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, players will be able to Mega Evolve a Pokémon once per battle if they have a Key Stone and the Mega Stone corresponding to that specific Pokémon. Mega Evolution, known as “the Evolution that transcends Evolution,” momentarily unleashes the energy within a Pokémon and can only be accomplished when a strong bond exists between the Pokémon and its Trainer. The first three Pokémon that fans will be able to Mega Evolve during their adventure will be Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise.

Explore Iconic Kanto Region Location Vermilion City
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will bring players to a variety of interesting locations in the Kanto region, including Vermilion City, where the luxury cruise liner the S.S. Anne docks once a year. In the Vermilion City Pokémon Gym, players can battle Gym Leader Lt. Surge, who is also known as the Lightning Lieutenant.

Here Comes Team Rocket!
Team Rocket, a nefarious organization set on using the world’s Pokémon in despicable plots to make money, is another example of the diverse cast of characters that players will encounter in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! This includes the most famous members of Team Rocket—Jessie, James, and Meowth!

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018. For more information, please visit

  1. I know these words are cruel and I apologize in advance if anyone gets offended by this but…I really just want these games out of the way so we can get on to Pokemon 2019.

    1. Oh don’t feel bad and I’m sure not offended about it at all. I totally get it, yet I look forward we already have some Pokémon game in couple of months.

      I never played a bad main or remake Pokémon game. Smash and Pokémon means a good winter to keep us busy.
      One is an RPG and other is like arcade you can play and pratice for the next years to come, both full of content.

      1. The thing I don’t like about these games is Gamefreak are treating them as “Core-Series” which to me is wrong as Core-Series games have always retained all playable Pokemon from past games while bringing in new ones. And while the gameplay is very similar to the games we know, it’s also not because of how you capture Pokemon.
        If Gamefreak came out and declared these as a core-series on it’s own and nothing to do with the core-series we know, I would be open to the idea but they aren’t, they are treating these as what’s coming after generation 7 which, for some reason, really rubs me the wrong way.

    2. No offense to you or anyone, but people need to keep their expectations in check for Pokemon 2019. They are just setting themselves up for disappointment by thinking Let’s Go is just a deviation rather than a clear sign of where the franchise is going.

      1. The developers themselves have said Lets go is a deviation, and that POkemon 2019 will be what core fans have been waiting for. They said that almost verbatim.

      2. But that’s the thing, Gamefreak in the press conference did straight up say Pokemon Let’s Go is a “New Main Series Pokemon RPG for Nintendo Switch”. I think the reason the confusion has come in is because the graph they showed gives the impression that when he’s talking about the 2nd game he’s referring to the Pokemon 2019 game but no, he is actually referring to Pokemon Let’s Go.

    1. Oh & this “mega evolution needs both human & Pokemon to have a strong bond” is just bullshit as you can get a Charizard from someone else & mega-evolve it all in the same 5-10 minutes. They need to fix it to where you got to get your friendship up with that Pokemon to mega-evolve it. Otherwise, this “strong bond” tagline is just hot air.

      1. Well, it’s all kind of BS ever since capturing wild pokemon became, in concept, “showing the pokemon how powerful you are so it’ll join you”. I mean… yeah… that’s probably more kosher than “attacking them, throwing a trap at them, and then forcing them to battle other creatures.” Still… most of the themes are a bit anime-cliche now…

        Side note… I’d like to go on record and bet that fusions will be a future thing.
