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!
*Using as a Pokémon™ GO Plus requires installation of the Pokémon™ GO application on a compatible smartphone. See pokeballplus.nintendo.com for details.

I brought Let's Go, Pikachu plus a Poke Plus Ball for my daughter's Easter gift. Our girl practically jumped so much of excitement when she saw this game she had always wanted for a while! Perfect gift especially on Easter Day! She been playing with it since she received it!
I bought this one for my kids for Christmas and they've never played an actual Pokémon RPG before this. This was a great way to introduce them to the ways of the game , outside of the card game. I also picked up Evee for myself at launch. I'm glad I did. Great game to bond with the kids.
Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu is a very fun game and also a remake from the gam boy version of Pokémon yellow. This game has new Pokémon visuals and battle animations. You also get to interact with pikachu and feed him berries and give him cool clothes to wear. I had fun playing this and now I’m ready for Pokémon Sword and Shield!!
This game is great! It has the same story line as the original Pokemon, with a twist. The one thing that is new, which I didn’t like is that to catch Pokemon, it is the same as Pokemon Go. You just throw Pokeballs hoping to catch them, rather than battle and then catch them. This was a let down for me as that was a big part of the strategy when playing the old games. Also it spreads out the XP during battles and catching amongst all your party Pokemon, rather than just the Pokemon you are using at the time. It is hard to level up just one of your Pokemon to be strong enough to take on the other trainers.
