As the protagonist you will start your journey through Kanto with your favourite sparkly companion. Where you always jealous of your rival/Gary? Let’s Go Eevee is the game for you! You start the new game on the Nintendo Switch with the fluffy Eevee.
Let’s go! Pikachu and Eevee
You have the ability to let your Pokémon walk right next to you just like in the animes, Pokémon Yellow and SoulSilver/HearthGold games. Pikachu or Eevee will sit on your shoulder on your head or walk right behind ofcourse there are other Pokémon you can go on an adventure with.
We don’t know anything about the Pokémon which are exclusive to the Pikachu game just yet. But if you take a look at the older Pokémon games it is almost a given that there will be some kind of exlusives. If you want to catch them all you might want to buy both versions of the games.
Pokémon Let’s Go! and Pokémon Go

So you can play with your Pokémon both on your Switch as on your smartphone. This is only the case for the first 151 Pokémon for now, including Mew and Mewto. The Pokémon Company promised us to tell more about this connectivity on a later date.
