Nintendo during its E3 2018 Nintendo Treehouse live stream debuted over 40 minutes of Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! gameplay. 

View it below:

Here are some features:

  • GO Park – GO Park is enabled as a player progresses further in the game and will help players befriend Pokemon from Pokemon GO in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! This feature allows for Pokemon from Pokemon GO originally discovered in the Kanto region to be transferred to Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! These Pokemon will then need to be caught with a Poke Ball. The player can interact with them in a whole new way in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
  • Candy Jar – Players can use a variety of Candies to strengthen their Pokemon in a training system introduced in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Later in the game, players will be able to send their Pokemon to Professor Oak to receive these Candies.
  • Link Trading and Battles – Players will be able to trade and engage in Single and Double Battles with other players online and via local wireless communication. Trading and battling online will require an active Nintendo Switch Online membership, a paid service launching this September.

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will launch for the Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 16.

I'm not watching the whole video because it looks really boring, and that's simply because there don't seem to be any random fights. Whoever thought it was a good idea to replace fights with Pokemon Go's throwing mechanic must've been on some really special stuff. I don't mind the throw mechanics, but if that's the main gameplay feature, something's wrong.

Whilst I've come around to the graphical style, I'm still really out off but the mandatory motion controls and lack of wild Pokemon battles.
