The Pokémon Company has been releasing more and more information about Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go! Eevee as the release date of November 18th quickly approaches. Switch owners were able to see a new promotional commercial which was released today via the Nintendo Switch News Network. While this video does not contain a great deal of new footage, the same cannot be said for other recent Let’s Go! videos.
We learned about the new Master Trainers, a new type of NPC who specialize in just one type of Pokémon. Defeating these trainers will earn you the title of Master Trainer of that type of Pokémon, however this is no easy task. Master Trainer battles are 1 verses 1 battles where items are not allowed, and their Pokémon come equipped with special and often unexpected moves.
We also got a special look at the new Mythical Pokémon, Meltan. This elusive Pokémon has spotted inside of Pokémon GO, but transforms into the shape-shifting Ditto whenever it is captured. Players will be able to attain the strange, metal-loving Meltan by receiving a special box from Pokémon GO, then transferring and opening it inside of Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu or Pokémon Let’s Go! Eevee.
