You and your partner Pokémon

In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, your partner Pikachu will always be by your side, growing and learning as you go. Pikachu can learn Secret Techniques to use outside of battle, like Chop Down, Sky Dash and Sea Skim to reach new places, as well as partner powers to use in battle!

The more time you spend with your partner, the more it’ll grow to love you! You can pet, feed, tickle and dress up your partner Pokémon with different outfits, accessories and hairstyles. Good things might happen as the two of you become closer.

Prefer to have Eevee as your partner?

Catch

You’re bound to meet many Pokémon wandering throughout the Kanto region! Simply approach a Pokémon and you’ll have a chance to catch it – just use the motion controls of the Joy-Con or Poké Ball Plus accessory (sold separately) to throw a Poké Ball!

Battle

Be prepared! When a Trainer sees you, it's time for battle! Battles are a great way to train your Pokémon and grow closer to them.

Meanwhile, Pokémon Gyms are places for Pokémon Trainers to test their skill in battle. Defeating a Gym Leader will earn a Pokémon Trainer a Gym Badge.

Trade

You can also trade Pokémon with friends nearby or around the world to complete your Pokédex. Oddish, Sandshrew and Growlithe only appear in the wild in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, while Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth only appear in the wild in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

Explore

The Kanto region is a varied locale, filled with small towns, cities, mountains, rivers, forests, and seas. There is a wide variety of places to explore and plenty of Pokémon to be found.

Some Pokémon will even let you ride them, allowing you to move faster around the world. It’s a great way to experience the adventure with your Pokémon!

Team Rocket is here

During your travels through the Kanto region, you're bound to cross paths with members of the sinister organisation Team Rocket. This dastardly group plots to steal and use Pokémon for their own nefarious ends!

Alolan Forms

Some Pokémon have travelled to Kanto from the Alola region. Due to Alola's unique climate, they look a little different from their Kanto-region counterparts!

Play with friends

Pass a Joy-Con to a friend for multiplayer fun! With the Support Play feature, two players can explore, battle and catch Pokémon together – and both players can even have a Pokémon travel alongside them as well!
