Nintendo announced new details for the upcoming games “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!,” which are set to release on November 16 on the Nintendo Switch. To celebrate the games, Nintendo is releasing a special bundle that includes a Nintendo Switch system, Pikachu and Eevee themed Joy-Con controllers, a digital copy of “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” or “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!,” and a Poké Ball Plus. The special bundle will be released on November 16th, the same day as the game. The front of the dock features Eevee and Pikachu, while the back of the console has silhouettes of both partner Pokémon. You can see the new console and all its cuteness above.

You can also compare the bundle with the other popular Nintendo Switch bundles here on Amazon.

Another big announcements was “Secret Techniques,” where Pikachu or Eevee can help players overcome obstacles they encounter and make travel easier in “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!”. These special skills can be used by the player’s partner Pokémon outside of battle to clear away trees (Chop Down), glide across water (Sea Skim), and quickly revisit towns and cities that have already been explored (Sky Dash). There will also be Partner-Exclusive Moves which allow Pikachu or Eevee to help players face any challenge during their adventures. Once the player’s relationship with their partner reaches a certain level, the partner Pokémon will occasionally send a sign during battle that its partner power (one of its exclusive moves) can be used. You can use these even if the partner Pokémon is not in the battle. If the player responds, the partner will bolster the Pokémon in battle by boosting its stats.

Two of Pikachu’s exclusive moves are Pika Papow and Splishy Splash. Pika Papow is also a partner power, so it’s performed when the partner sign appears during battle. The power of Pika Papow can increase depending on how strong the player’s bond is with their partner Pikachu. The Water-type move Splishy Splash can paralyze opponents.

Eevee’s exclusive moves include the partner power Veevee Volley as well as Bouncy Bubble, Buzzy Buzz, and Sizzly Slide. When Eevee uses Veevee Volley, its power can increase depending on Eevee’s relationship with the player. Bouncy Bubble, a Water-type move, will heal Eevee for half the damage dealt to the opponent. The Electric-type move Buzzy Buzz paralyzes the opponent. An opponent will always be left with the burned status condition if it is hit with Eevee’s Fire-type move, Sizzly Slide. Players can interact with their partner Pokémon when they are not in battle by selecting the Pikachu or Eevee icon on the main menu. By petting and playing with their partner Pokémon, players will improve their relationship with Pikachu or Eevee and can receive in-game benefits such as presents. When the game is in handheld mode, players can use the touch screen to play directly with their partner Pokémon.

Celadon City is one of the many interesting locations in the Kanto region that players can explore, the large city, known as the “City of Rainbow Dreams,” has an arcade and even a department store. Erika, sometimes called “the Nature-Loving Princess,” is the Gym Leader of the Celadon City Gym and specializes in Grass-type Pokémon.
