Pokémon Let’s Go Trailer Explores Kanto
Nintendo started off this wonderful Wednesday with a fresh look at one (or two?) of their most anticipated games. A new Pokémon Let’s Go trailer hit the web this morning giving us a closer look at our upcoming revisit to the Kanto region. And the trailer features a few big time cameos too.
The latest Pokémon Let’s Go trailer does a fantastic job of quickly, yet effectively showing how differently we’ll be exploring Kanto this time around. It begins with our character’s introduction to Professor Oak before we get greeted with our starter Pokémon. In Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu, that’s Pikachu. And in Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee that’s, of course, Eevee.
We then get a few seconds of the trailer showing us how we can customize both our male and female trainers, as well as Pikachu and Eevee themselves. You can also take time to love on your Pokémon in order to boost your bond with them.
You’re primary Pokémon (outside of Pikachu or Eevee) will follow along behind you as you venture through Kanto. In the trailer we see a Magikarp flopping along, a Squirtle racing to catch up, and our trainer riding on the back of an Arcanine and Charizard in different segments.
We get to see the inside of a few gyms as well in today’s Pokémon Let’s Go trailer. First is Brock’s Pewter City rock gym, with the gym leader himself making an appearance. Then Misty makes a cameo in her Cerulean City gym with a Starmie standing in front of her ready to do battle.
The trailer then shows us what it looks like to have a second player controlling a support character in the game. They too have a Pokémon following them as they traverse the map, and they battle alongside you as you come across random trainers throughout the game.
The countdown is on before we finally get our hands on Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee. Both versions of the Pokémon Yellow remake hit stores for Nintendo Switch on November 16th.
