Lets Go Pikachu Eevee

Continuing the steady drip feed of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! footage and information, a set of short videos have been shared on YouTube demonstrating how a range of different Pokémon will follow your trainer.

We already know that Pikachu or Eevee will accompany you, sitting on your head or shoulders, and one other Pokémon can be chosen to follow you from behind, just as Pikachu did in Pokémon Yellow - the game that these titles are based on. Sticking true to their nature, each Pokémon has its own distinct style of walking, and these differences give you a real sense that these are living, breathing creatures, rather than just a set of pixels programmed to follow your every move.

First up are Venusaur and Onix, two of the larger monsters on offer. As we've seen before, Onix can be used as a method of transportation, even barreling down the city streets next to Poké Marts and more, while Venusaur follows the normal trend of galloping behind you.

Next up we have Golem and Electrode, two spherical Pokémon. Electrode has no choice other than to roll, thanks to its lack of limbs, but it's interesting to see Golem using the same tactic to keep up with you as run around.

And finally, we have Caterpie. Being the tiny Pokémon that it is, Caterpie struggles to keep up, forcing the trainer to occasionally check back and make sure it's still wiggling along. We suddenly find ourselves wanting to set up a Caterpie rescue centre, the poor things.

It's certainly a nice touch that adds a little bit more personality to proceedings. Remember, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Let's Go, Eevee! hit store shelves on 16th November.
