This past weekend brought the release of Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee! and Let’s Go Pikachu. Being a life-long fan of all things Eevee, the choice was easy for me. When I was a little kid, playing the original RPG that introduced the world to a whole new way of fun, I never imagined that one day I would be able to experience a game like this. Here are three reasons why I love Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee!
One: It is absolutely adorable. The way interactions with your Eevee are incorporated into the game are so charming. Eevee will summon you at times for a quick pet, or to react to things happening in the story.
Two: You can play the game on your TV. If you’re a fan of Pokemon, you’ve probably had dreams about being able to play through an RPG style game on a big screen. The graphics are spectacular. Not your style? It easily translates to handheld.
Three: You see what you want to catch. I remember the days of walking around caves, constantly running into Zubats and being very frustrated. After awhile, you just don’t want to catch any more of the same Pokemon. In this game, you can see the Pokemon walking in front of you, see the size differences, and choose what you want to attempt to catch. It’s a really great mechanic, that I believe, improves the overall experience of the game.
All in all, I highly recommend this new addition to the Nintendo Switch family. Grab your copy of Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee today and if Eevee isn’t for you, Pikachu is available too!
