Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu And Eevee will require a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to access key gameplay features, it has been revealed. 

You'll need a paid-for sub - which arrives in September - to access online battles and trade monsters with other players.

Speaking to Eurogamer, a Pokémon Company spokesperson said:

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! will have online play functionality. Battling and trading with other players over the internet or locally will be available in these games. However, the feature set will be somewhat simplified in comparison to previous games in that there is no GTS, Wonder Trade, or Battle Spot (Rating Battle, Free Battle, and Online Competition, etc.) for example. Further details will be revealed at a later date. An active membership for the Nintendo Switch Online service, which is scheduled to begin in September of this year, will be required to access these features.
