Default Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu! & Let's Go Eevee! - November 16, 2018 Details in OP!


E3 Update!

Hey guys
In order to combat the inevitable spread of fake news and misinformation, I thought I'd compile a summary of the new stuff we discovered from the Nintendo Treehouse presentation of Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Evee. I have included some screenshots but all this info is from the Treehouse stuff. If you want to know more, watch it on Youtube.

Without further ado, let's get cracking.

Levelling up
  • Pokemon gain levels through experience as usual.
  • Capturing a Pokemon grants experience. Bonuses to the amount of experience gained can be earned through particularly good throws / other modifiers.
  • EXP share spreads EXP through your party. It is NOT CLEAR whether EXP share can be turned off at this time.
  • It seems like ALL pokemon gain exp when you capture one. EXP share kicks in during battles with trainers.
  • Pokemon gain new moves as they level up, just like in the mainline games. We saw Pikachu learn Quick Attack at level 6.
  • Overall, it feels like grinding will still be a thing, except you will be catching Pokemon to gain levels rather than fighting wild ones.
Capturing Pokemon
  • Works like GO as we knew.
  • Berries can be thrown to make Pokemon easier to catch
  • Lower level Pokemon are easier to catch and don't move much. More powerful Pokemon later in the game will be more difficult - they mentioned moving around the screen more often / more quickly/.
  • Multiple different types of throw - underhand, overhand and side throws. Seems like each give bonuses.
  • Different throws will work better depending on how the Pokemon is moving.
  • Overall it seems like the capture minigame may be slightly deeper than it first appears.
  • In hand-held mode, where waving the joycon obviously isn’t practical, you use the gyro to align a reticule on the target and press a button to throw.
Available Pokemon
  • Demo area showed Viridian Forest and the patch of grass just after it, before Pewter City.
  • Pokemon seen in the wild in Viridian Forest were: Caterpie, Weedle, Metapod, Kakuna, Butterfree, Pidgey, Pikachu and Oddish.
  • Oddish is clearly there to give new players something to handle Brock more easily.
  • Pokemon seen between Viridian and Pewter were: Pidgey and Rattata.

Battles
  • Seem to work in an identical manner to the mainline games. Nothing more to be said here really - it's a shiny mainline game battle system. 3 options in battle - FIGHT, POKEMON and BAG. So just like the mainline games.
  • If you send out your Companion (Pikachu or Evee, who sit on your shoulder), you get a cool animation of you sending them in and them leaping off your shoulder into battle.
Gyms
  • Gyms are in. Brock is the leader of Pewter gym.
  • On arrival, you are asked to have at least one water or grass type in your team before continuing.
  • THIS IS LIKELY A TUTORIAL. See screenshots below. They strongly hint that this is just for the first gym.
[



  • Note how it said "for trainers who have never challenged a gym before". This suggests it is just for Brock.
  • After he says this, you have to select a water or grass type in your team. Then he lets you in. It is not clear if you have to use it though. I guess you can show him one of the right type, then box it again if you wanted as you can box Pokemon any time, any place now.
  • This is almost certainly in the game to teach new players about type advantages. Remember, many people have not played the previous mainline games and don't instinctively know that, for example, grass beats rock.
Stats
  • The full spread of mainline STATS are in. HP, Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk. Sp. Def and Speed.
  • These stats add together to give you a creature's CP value. They said in the video that the CP value was the total of a Pokemon's stats.
  • In this screenshot, however, the stats add up to 247, yet the Pikachu has a CP value of 277. It is not clear what causes this. It could be that there are some hidden stats which we don't know about yet.
Here is Theorymon’s thinking on the stats issue:
  • Candy is used to increase these stats, a little like the drugs in the mainline games such as CARBOS, PROTEIN, IRON etc.
  • Candy is obtained by sending Pokemon you have caught to the Professor. If it works like in GO, which I assume it will, this will effectively "release" the Pokemon.
  • Pokemon can be sent in bulk, up to 30 at a time.
  • The more Pokemon you send, the more candy you get back.
  • There is one type of candy for each stat.
  • Overall, it seems like there will be some more in-depth training than just levelling up, though we have not heard anything about IVs or EVs.
  • The core powering up loop seems to be: catch lots of Pokemon, all the time (which you will do as you need to to grind exp); send them to the professor for candies; use candies to increase your Pokemon's stats.
GO Park
  • Pokemon sent from GO will appear in the park.
  • You can wander the park freely, walk up to them and initiate a capture minigame if you choose.
  • The CP level at which you transfer them from GO affects their LGPE game level. The higher the CP, the higher their level and the harder they are to catch.
  • It is unclear if Pokemon can run away from you and, if they can, it is unclear if that means they will leave the GO Park as well. This seems unlikely but it is possible - we just don't know.
Other random stuff
  • You have a rival. Their name is Tracie. They give you 5 potions when you enter Viridian city. They seem to be less of an arse-face than Blue. It is unclear whether you can rename them. I hope you can.
  • Following Pokemon will waffle their tails to notify you about nearby hidden items.
  • It is HIGHLY UNLIKELY that you will have the sort of team they had in this video by the time you reach Brock in the main game. They had a Pikachu, Evee, Onix, Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. It seems almost impossible that they could have had all of these before Viridian Forest (which is where it started). This was likely just for the demo.
  • Mystery gift is in.
  • You can to local trading / battling with people nearby on their Switches or trade / battle with people over the internet. At the moment we don't know the extent of the features which will be behind the online sub. I would GUESS that you will be able to trade / battle locally for free but internet stuff will be paid for through the online sub.
  • Lots of the features are designed to make it easy for people to play with their kids (e.g the co-op battling).
  • Nuzlocke won't work. We will need to come up with a new set of SUPER SRS BSNS HARDCORE RULES.
  • Onix is MASSIVE. Riding him is HILARIOUS.
  • Riding a pokemon like Onix happens automatically when you take them out of the Pokeball. It seems any Pokemon can be chosen to follow you. You just go into the menu:

  • Go into your party menu, select the Pokemon as usual and a standard menu pops up which lets you take them out of the ball.


That's all for now. I hope this helps clear up any misunderstandings etc. I will add more screenshots and details over time.














FEATURES
  • Pokémo Go like catching
  • In docked or tabletop mode, capture is done by flicking the JoyCons and in handheld you move around to aim and press A to throw the Pokeball. At present there is no word of any non-motion control to capture.
  • Pokémon box is no longer only accessible through the PC at Pokémon Centers, but rather you can check the Pokémon and make switches from anywhere through your Bag. (Source: Serebii)
  • Can transfer Gen 1 Pokémon from Pokémon Go to the Switch games
  • Inspired by Pokémon Yellow, not a remake
  • Following Pokémon return
  • Eevee and Pikachu customization
  • Eevee and Pikachu do NOT evolve. You can catch another Pikachu or Eevee and evolve them, though.
  • No random battles
  • Local co-op. While playing using one Joy-Con, another player can shake the second Joy-Con and join as a support character when in open areas or battle. This player can help you catch Pokemon and can battle alongside you. (Source: GameSpot)
  • Thanks to the Switch, you can have multiple save files (up to 8 accounts)
  • Pokéball Plus device announced ($50)
  • No wild battles, you can only battle pokémon trainers
  • OG 151 available + Alolan forms
  • No HMs, if the Pokémon is big enough, you can ride it.
  • There is no Pokemon breeding (and therefore no eggs) in Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee. (Source: GameSpot)
  • One completely never before seen pokémon will be in the game
  • Online requieres Nintendo Switch Online Subscription. There's local and online trading with friends. No GTS, wonder trade and no battle spot.

Original Post Below

A new version of Pokémon Sun and Moon will launch for Nintendo Switch.

Multiple sources tell Eurogamer the game is already well into development, will launch in 2017, and currently holds the codename of Pokémon Stars.

Earlier generations of Pokémon games have featured a third title launched later with expanded features - Pokémon Yellow followed Game Boy originals Red and Blue to start this trend, which continued through until Pokémon Platinum followed Diamond and Pearl on DS.

With Pokémon Stars, this idea will be revived - but for the first time we'll see the mainline Pokémon series spanning separate Nintendo consoles within the same generation of games.

Indeed, Switch will be the first Nintendo "home" console to receive a main Pokémon adventure. It only took 20 years.

Nintendo's new 3DS duo Sun and Moon, available today in North America and Japan or next week in Europe, have shared much of their development with their Switch bigger brother.

As you might expect, Pokémon Stars is being developed by the Sun and Moon team at Game Freak, the studio behind all main Pokémon games since the series' Game Boy beginnings.

In fact, you may have already seen something from the Switch version. Sun and Moon's February reveal teaser culminates in split-second shots of Game Freak staff such as series boss Junichi Masuda and director Shigeru Ohmori working on Sun and Moon spliced with quick flashes of in-game concept art and models, including this HD in-game model for new bird Pokémon Pikipek. We've heard this is for the Switch edition:



This parallel development structure has allowed the work-in-progress Pokémon Stars to already feature working versions of Sun and Moon content. I'm told that GameFreak largely paused work on the Switch version a couple of months ago to polish Sun and Moon in time for their launch this month, but that work on Stars will now resume with the development of features not found in the 3DS versions.

Pokémon Stars' development shouldn't be seen as taking anything away from Sun and Moon's launch - this is how all third entries in the Pokémon franchise are developed.

And there will be reason to play both: Pokémon will be tradable between Sun/Moon and Stars via the Pokémon Bank app. We've also heard suggestion there will be more creatures to collect in the Switch version, although not all of our sources could confirm this.

Expect the Switch version of Sun and Moon to feature the same map - the same routes and cities - and the same art style, although be built using separate, higher-resolution assets.

It may be some time before Stars releases, however. We heard the game was initially a summer 2017 launch for Nintendo Switch, but has since been pushed back to later in the year.

Both Nintendo and The Pokémon Company declined to comment for this article, although I asked Sun and Moon director Ohmori about the possibility of a mainline Pokémon game for Switch (then still code-named NX) back in September:

"We've always made [main] Pokémon games on Nintendo hardware," Ohmori said. "Something which has been important to us recently has been the communication and wireless features. So when we consider whether we should bring something to one thing or another, it really depends on is the hardware itself.

"What might change about Nintendo hardware in the future is something we're really looking forward to - and if the hardware is suitable it's definitely something we want to consider using."

This was, of course, before the Switch was publicly confirmed as a portable home console. The form of the device makes perfect sense for a proper Pokémon game.

Previously, Game Freak has always preferred to keep the main Pokémon series on Nintendo handhelds to focus gameplay around trading and battling other players while on the go. This is something that's now possible on Nintendo's home console too - it all makes a neat fit. And it's another major piece of the Switch's first-year software line-up sure to appeal to Nintendo's audience.

Last week we reported on the fact that the long-awaited The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will miss the Nintendo Switch's March launch date and instead be released several months later, and that Mario would likely take its place at launch as Nintendo's big first-party title.

Before that, we also published word of Nintendo Switch features which are still yet to be detailed - such as the console's 6.2" 720p multi-touch screen.

As for Pokémon Sun and Moon - it's your choice whether you want to play the game now or wait the best part of a year for Stars on Switch - or get both. Either way, the 3DS version comes highly recommended.

I've made up my own little theory about this 3rd entry.

As we saw in a previous trailer, as well as many leaks this past summer, there are no Gyms in Sun and Moon, and the Alola region is in fact in the process of building a Pokemon league of their own during the events of Sun and Moon.

I haven't read any spoilers for the games but I am guessing that if we don't actually see the league completed this game, then I would imagine Stars would pick up where this left off. League fully implemented as well as 6 Gyms set up.

Whatever the case, I can't wait to finally get a "home console" Pokemon. It only took 20 years

The original list of leaked info from a few months ago. Note that it mentions an NX version, as well as Kalos being added. That would lend itself quite well to todays Eurogamer article claiming there will be more pokemon to catch in Stars. Adding another region will vertainly add to the pokemon count.

This is the list of rumours that was leaked back in early August.
  • Alola is made up of 4 islands, Melemele, Poni, Ula’Ula, and Akala.
  • Post game has 4 “Island Districts” that aren’t viewable on the map. Ekahi Island, Elua Island, Ekolu Island, and Kalola Island.
  • Kalos is not available post-game, but Hoomaka Cave on Kalola Island holds a huge easter egg I believe. Deep inside there is a dark entrance guarded by a backpacker that states the railroad is closed for now and only a Pokémon that emits a special light can ignite the way to the other side. No Pokémon in your party will allow you to enter for now.
  • Rockruff has 3 evolutions similar to Eevee in RBY. All of them require learning “Howl”.
  • Salandit has a split evolution line at level 36, one for Male and one for Female.
  • There are 16 Z-Stones, 18 total, with a Trial Captain for 16 of the types. Guzma and Plumeria are holders of the missing Dark and Poison Z-Stones.
  • Some Pokémon can change shape/stats after they perform a Z-Move. These include Greninja (Rainbow), Solgaleo (Radiant), Lunala (Full Moon), Marshadow (Eclipse), Espeon (Dawn), and Umbreon (Dusk).
  • All 47 Mega Stones are accessible on the island districts. There aren’t any new Mega Evolutions.
  • There are a total of 128 new Pokémon and 23 Alolan forms. These Alolan forms are all Gen 1 exclusive Pokémon.
  • Alolan form Pokémon that are capable of Mega Evolving can do so, Alakazam and Kangaskahn are among these.
  • Marshadow, an extremely gorgeous dolphin, has a jewel on its head that emit sparkles so bright, that its seen as the emissary of light. It’s stats are pretty underwhelming, but it has a cool ability that allows it to have any Psychic type combination. The second type is random every time it enters the battle field. Even switching out causes it to change.
  • The Strange Souvenir item in XY depicts a Ghost/Rock Pokémon from Alola named Gigareki. It’s a giant tiki (different from the Tapu lines) that has an amazing laughing animation when you battle with it. It is said to be the oldest living Pokémon, and seen as a “Teacher” in many ways.
  • The NX will be a dual handheld/console set for release next year. Sept 2017 there will be a parent game that features both regions of XYSM exclusive to this console.
  • Rainbow Greninja will be revealed by TPC on Aug 21.
  • Alolan Alakazam family are fighting type. Alolan Alakazam can mega evolve, keeps the fighting type, and gains No Guard.
  • Yes. The Z-Bracelet is a key item in your backpack. Selecting it allows you to place 1 mega stone and 1 z stone inside of it. This allows for more crazy strategies because your Mega Pokémon can now hold items like Rayquaza due to this.
  • The first district you’re taken too has a slightly upgraded Battle Maison. One of the districts has a Lugia/Ho-Oh depending on your version.
  • All Champions from previous games are able to battled on the S.S. Anne while they’re bored. The S.S. Anne brings you to the districts.
  • Rainbow Greninja is technically Ash Greninja but with a name change. It will be revealed in the closing ceremony at World’s 2016.
  • Meowth that knows “Happy Hour” and OT Alola will be distributed at World’s. Cherish Ball.
  • If you add 128 to our existing 721 roster, that means Generation 8 will only need to introduce 151 Pokemon (like a reboot) to bring our total count to 1000.

Hoping it's not simply an exact copy of S/M with some added story, features. Would like to see some graphics worthy of the Switch and a console Pokemon game.

Been enjoying Moon and can't wait for this if it's true.

As I said in the main Switch thread, I hope that rumor about having 2 regions is true to make the console version more unique and larger in scope. I would also hope they allow us to download all of the other games from the Switch's digital store, whatever it will be called




It's going to be one heck of a 2017 for Nintendo.

3D Mario
Mario Kart 8.5
Smash Bros Switch (most likely)
Breath of the Wild
The 1st console traditional Pokemon



When they first announced Switch I was interested but was also on a wait and see to see if I would be able to play some of the Wii U games I missed on it...but with this line up just for the 1st 9-12 months (plus more), I'm fully on board. Digital versions of other Wii U games will just be a bonus at this point.


Only question is when is Zelda finally going to drop because that will most likely dictate when I pick up the console.

There's a new rumour doing the round that the Switch version is going to get 20 new pokemon that weren't in Sun or Moon.

Would be interesting if true, there has never been a new Pokemon added mid generation before.

I'd be kind of surprised if that was the case, but given it would be the first true Pokemon game on a console, anything is possible.

The phrase is "doing the rounds" – you forgot the "S" (if you even knew it belonged there in the first place)

Wow. Not sure what else it could be? Although at only 8 minutes, that has me wondering what they could even show if it is Stars.

Probably some update for the mobile game.

latest rumours from here http://m.neogaf.com/showthread.php?t...87&page=100000 take with a pinch of salt.

https://imgur.com/2AwcGdQ

In-game image was posted yesterday and the concept art was posted today. Some details

i'm a translator working on the upcoming pokémon game which you know as codename "pokémon stars".
I'll be leaving here few infos because u'll soon get an official announcement.

the new game will be available both for 3DS and Nintendo Switch. Only one title, not a couple of games.
the two versions can, of course, communicate.
Game will be again set in Alola, no visiting Kanto. Most of the characters will be grown up, such as Gladion that now fully runs Aether Paradise on his own.
Gyms are now built up. No more Alolan trials.
there will be no new pokémon or megas. Necrozma is getting a new form though. there will be new exclusive Z-moves. Won't say
anything more on them.
while the game is a sequel, plot is heavily focused on past events, such as black & white 2: you'll know more about how Mohn lost his memories, and how Necrozma fell into our world. (hint: "stars"!)
the game is heavily filled with cutscenes, even more than Sun & Moon.

what you see here is a grown up Gladion in his new suit. Feel free not to believe, i don't want any troubles on leaking things. Do not ask anything, I won't be saying more than what's already in the post.

boy is called kaosu, girl is called hoshi
