Description

The next step in your Pokémon™ journey starts here

Take a Pokémon™ journey to the Kanto region with your energetic partner, Pikachu! Become the best Pokémon Trainer as you battle other Trainers, Gym Leaders, and the sinister Team Rocket. Catch Pokémon in the wild using a gentle throwing motion with either a Joy-Con™ controller or a Poké Ball™ Plus accessory, which will light up, vibrate, and make sounds to bring your adventure to life. You can also use button controls in Handheld Mode. Share your adventure with family or friends using a second Joy-Con or Poké Ball Plus (sold separately). You can even connect to the Pokémon™ GO app* using a compatible smartphone to bring over Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region!

Explore the vibrant region of Kanto—home to beloved characters like Brock, Misty, and the nefarious trio Jessie, James, and Meowth! Throughout the story, your bond with your partner Pokémon grows stronger as you care for it and travel together. See the world in style by customizing Pikachu and your Trainer with a selection of outfits. True-to-size wild Pokémon roam around in the game—catch them like a real Pokémon Trainer by using timing and a well-placed Poké Ball™. Battle and trade with other players who own the game via local wireless or online**. Go on a stroll with your favorite Pokémon in your Poké Ball Plus to level them up, and to receive in-game rewards after returning them to the game. Connect to Pokémon GO* to transfer caught Kanto-region Pokémon, including Alolan and Shiny forms, as well as the newly discovered Pokémon, Meltan, from that game to this one!

Q: Does this game require online membership to play?

submitted by jlphil - 4 years ago
  • A: It doesn't require online membership. But, I think you will have to get it in order to trade with other people around the world. To answer your question, the game is playable, even if you don't have the membership. Your Welcome!

    submitted byAllKnowingPokemonSensei - 4 years ago
  • A: The “AllKnowingPokemonSensei” hardly seems to know what they’re talking about. Allow me to make it clear: you DO need Nintendo Online membership if you want to Battle or Trade online with people around the world. You DO NOT need online membership to trade and battle people next to you, your systems can connect with BlueTooth. To play the regular game quest, obviously No, you don’t need Internet lol.

Honestly I love the game but no star just because you can’t play the digital game if there is no wifi I bought it so I didn’t lose the physical one on this long trip but I should have bought the physical one but chose the cheaper option now I’m on this 23 hour road trip with no entertainment

I don't like that you don't battle the Pokemon to catch them. It gets repetitive fast!

My kiddo is 5 and has learned how to play this game and absolutely loves it!! I wouldn’t say he is a Nintendo switch master by any means so if he can do it I’d say it’s for ages 5+

It's very nostalgic for sure, but aside from that, it's been very fun to play. There's plenty to work for even after the main storyline. Then, of course, there's the cool gimmick of being able to transfer your pokemon from Pokemon Go. It comes in handy especially if you're unable to trade with others online. And it's nice to be able to play solely with Gen 1 every once in a while. Overall, just very enjoyable and relaxing.

Game comments I wasn't a huge fan of Let's GO P/E at the beginning but they are pretty good games. Fresh style, design and it makes you feel like you're in Kanto. Liking them a lot. Give them a try. Target review Recieved everything digital in almost 5 minutes. Glad of the service of Target.

Greed213 - 4 years ago
This game would be the Activision tactics of game release for Nintendo. Worse tatic than EA. This game is beautiful Graphically and the nostalgia is up there. Unfortunately this game is a blank slate. Basically carbon copy of the original yellow version. Had I known how bad this game was going to be I would have never even considered buying this. This game is not worth $60 it would be a cool $29.99 maybe even that. The pokemon go Mechanics ruin the game entirely, I hate not having wild pokemon battles and that you have to catch the same pokemon over and over to level up. Please do not buy this game. There are so many better games than this for the switch.

Overall I think this game is really good the only thing that I am disappointed in is to trade online or battle online you need Nintendo online which is 20$ so overall you are paying 80$ total and you need Nintendo online if you want to get certain Pokémon like alakazam or gengar an alternative to this is Pokémon go but if you don’t have it those Pokémon on it either it will be a rough ride. But overall the thing I am most disappointed about is GTS it’s not in this game so you can look for a certain Pokémon that you need so there is no way to 100% complete this and if you do you need to pay minimum of 120$ for the Pokeball plus accessory that can come bundled with the game for about 100$ and you need the pokeball plus for a sing Pokémon. So overall if you are a casual player who doesn’t want to 100% complete the game go for it just pay 60$ for the game and that’s it but if you are wanting to 100% you either will spend a lot of time on Pokémon go to get all gen 1 Pokémon of spend a whopping 120$
