The games are the first installments of the Pokémon RPG series for the Nintendo Switch. They are enhanced remakes of the 1998 Game Boy video game Pokémon Yellow. They will also contain influences from Pokémon Go, as well as integration with Go, and will support a new optional controller called the Poké Ball Plus. The games are scheduled to be released worldwide on November 16, 2018 Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! are set in the Kanto region and will include the original 151 Pokémon creatures in addition to their respective Mega Evolved and Alolan forms from Pokémon X and Y & Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and Sun and Moon. Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! will feature common elements of the series, such as battling non-player character Pokémon Trainers and Gym Leaders with caught Pokémon creatures. However, instead of battling them like the traditional battle system of other major Pokémon role-playing games (RPGs), the catching of Pokémon creatures uses a different mechanic that is based on the mobile spin-off game Pokémon Go where players throw Poké Balls at a wild Pokémon by using the motion controls of the Joy-Con controller.

It's not as hard as he is making it....handheld is actually a great way to play this game, and is actually the easiest and most precisest way to catch them as well. You can turn off gyro as well in handheld.
Oh god. The thumbnail looks like an iPad

lol handheld is infinitely better than single joycon controls. I’m not sure what this video is even trying to say.

Jared Ellis:
Can't you go to the menu and click on Pikachu/Eevees head to interact with them?
My game was supposed to come today in the mail, it didn't ( ͠° ͟ ͜ʖ ͡ ͠°)
Damn .. How could u miss the literal button in the menu which takes off 2/3's of the screen .. also i like catching pokemon in handheld alot more, cause it has alot less rng in it.. you just look at the pokemon and press A, while in joycon mode the ball just sometimes flies off to the site
After school tomorrow I"ll pick up my copy of Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu. Can`t wait! I`ve already pre-ordered this game.

Well...#&*^ that perpetually fluctuating target reticle.

You can access your partner from the X menu, you only need to select the icon with the face of either Pikachu or Eevee.
Where’s my pre order gang
I don’t even have a switch and I know that you have to go in the menu and click the button to play with pikachu lol

Can't you just go to the partner in your menu, or go to change partner outfit to interact with your partner?
"R3" acts like A because of the poke ball thing, its easier to make it universal instead of how the pokeball controller would work

I preloaded it, I should be able to play at 10pm since I live in the mountain time zone. Or at least it's worked like that for some games like Mario odyssey and Octopath
I play h field just because I play literally every game in hand held, and when you first enter a battle, most Pokemon that don't move much you're already set perfectly in the middle, I can get am excellent every time, and if it's not in center usually I just have to aim up a tiny bit

Thank you for this video! Thanks for your time and your work :)
I cant wait for tomorrow😭
If you can use the touch screen for certain features in handheld mode why don't they just have it swipe to throw pokeball?

Ok, what a rough start with the game, there are already some errors with the handheld mode.
Catharina Broes
Catharina Broes:
So my Switch's battery ran out super fast while playing this game in hand held mode, and even when I plugged it in the battery kept depleting. Is my charger just broken or is this an actual thing?
This video really gives me a perspective in playing in handheld mode if I really miss out something. Handheld Mode === Pokemon Battle Only. My Nintendo Switch can't connect to the joycons in handheld mode I really think it has something to do with the rail. I tried brushing the rail but still not working that is why I used a piece of paper to cover it and play it in Bluetooth Handheld.

Hi Austin i love your channel 😀😀😀😀 are you ok dude ?
SO Pumped to get this tomorrow :D
Oof, I’m used to taking advantage of the circle stopping in pokego. That’s going to be an adjustment @[email protected]

At least handheld mode isn’t as bad as we thought it’d be. Small blessings.

Nate Falso
Nate Falso:
The first thing he tried, talking to Pikachu, he literally just did it then said he couldn’t figure out how to do it. You take the joycon off and shook it and it worked. That’s what you do. Duh.

I just really want to Pokeball Plus lol
Im already playing, theres a place in NYC that has games two days early or so
I have tried play with Pokémon let’s go, it had some glitches by when in tilting mode to throw ball, I hold my switch still and it went tilting up and down by itself also when I use left joycon, my character walking by himself when I stop moving the circle analog for no reason. So technically handheld mode isn’t good with Pokémon let’s go

To interact in handheld mode with your partner hit x save options comes up click up to play with eevee/pikachu and techniques are on the side :). Also I feel like throwing poke balls are easy 😂

You can access everything from the main menu in handheld including the option to play with pikachu. Catching pokemon is also so much easier on handheld you just press a. The game is really simple on handheld you dont need to work about gyro cause pretty easy.
