Voting ends on Monday, Nov. 26 with the winner being announced on Monday, Dec. 3. Players can cast their vote online through the official Google Play store here.

Your Exciting Pokémon Adventure Through the Kanto Region Begins Today

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! for Nintendo Switch and the Compatible Poké Ball Plus Accessory are Now Available

Pokémon Trainers of all ages have a very important question to answer today: “Team Pikachu or Team Eevee?” That’s because the Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games for the Nintendo Switch system are now available in stores, on Nintendo.com and in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch. No matter which version of the game you choose, you will embark on a fun journey through the vibrant Kanto region, catching and training Pokémon and battling Pokémon Trainers, Gym Leaders and the sinister Team Rocket – all with your partner Pikachu or Eevee by your side.

Check out the launch trailer

Feel like a true Pokémon Trainer when playing with the Poké Ball Plus accessory – also available today – which replicates the look and feel of a real-life Poké Ball. Control your entire adventure using just Poké Ball Plus and make a gentle throwing motion to capture Pokémon. You can even put a Pokémon from Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! into the Poké Ball Plus accessory and take it on a stroll in the real world to level it up and receive in-game rewards. In addition, every Poké Ball Plus contains the Mythical Pokémon Mew.
 
“For newer Pokémon fans, these games offer a great entry point to the Kanto region with a rich story full of memorable characters and RPG gameplay, while longtime fans can revisit the place where it all began to compete in tough new challenges and earn the title of Pokémon Master,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the ability to play the games anytime, anywhere on Nintendo Switch, Pikachu and Eevee are the perfect travel companions this holiday season.”
 
Last night, Nintendo threw an epic midnight launch party at Nintendo NY in Rockefeller Plaza to celebrate the release of these two new Nintendo Switch games. The store was decorated top to bottom with Pokémon décor, transporting visitors to their own mini Kanto region. Fans who came to the event got to meet the stars of the game, Pikachu and Eevee, and snap photos with other notable characters like Professor Oak, Brock and Erika. Pikachu and Eevee even posed for a photo with the first person in line to purchase the game.
 
In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, you take on the role of a female or male Pokémon Trainer as you set off on an adventure with Pikachu or Eevee, depending on which version you play. On your journey to become the best Pokémon Trainer, you will visit multiple areas throughout the Kanto region, meet up with iconic characters and encounter various types of Pokémon – the true-to-size versions of these Pokémon even roam around the world. Seeing some of the larger Pokémon, like Onix, is quite the sight!
 
You can even share your journey with a friend as you capture Pokémon and battle Pokémon Trainers together on one Nintendo Switch system in TV mode or Tabletop mode using two Joy-Con controllers or two Poké Ball Plus accessories – or one of each! If your friends or family members also own one of the games and a Nintendo Switch system, you can battle and trade Pokémon directly with them via local wireless or online*.
 
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! and Poké Ball Plus are also compatible with the Pokémon GO app**. By connecting with Pokémon GO, you can transfer Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region into the game, including Alolan and Shiny forms, as well as the newly discovered Mythical Pokémon, Meltan and Melmetal. You can also use the Poké Ball Plus accessory with Pokémon GO to catch Pokémon and gather items from Poké Stops without looking at your smartphone.
 
Starting today, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! can each be purchased in a bundle with the Poké Ball Plus accessory at a suggested retail price of $99.99, or separately at a suggested retail price of $59.99 each. For those who don’t yet have a Nintendo Switch, there’s also a special-edition bundlefeaturing a Nintendo Switch system with themed Joy-Con controllers, a download code for either Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, and the Poké Ball Plus accessory, available at a suggested retail price of $399.99. Quantities of this adorable hardware bundle are extremely limited, so make sure you shop early.
