The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have released even more information regarding the upcoming Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! games coming to Nintendo Switch, this time exploring legendary Pokémon battles and the games' connectivity with Pokémon GO.
In the new titles, players can use a Bluetooth connection to bring monsters they’ve caught in Pokémon GO to the big screen. Pokémon that are transferred to the new games will appear in a place called the GO Park complex, which is located in Fuchsia City. This park is made up of 20 individual GO Parks, and you can keep up to 50 Pokémon in each one. Interestingly, you're not limited to connecting with just your own Pokémon GO account - there's no limit to the number of Pokémon GO accounts that can be tied to a single save file, so you can receive Pokémon from your friends and family, too.
Once you have 25 of the same species of Pokémon in the GO Park complex, you'll be able to play a special minigame to win Candies. These Candies can be used to power up your Pokémon, altering specific stats such as Attack, Speed, or Defence. You can get these Candies by transferring Pokémon to Professor Oak, successfully completing games in the GO Park, or by taking your Pokémon for a stroll in the fancy Poké Ball Plus controller.
Elsewhere, as you can see in the trailer above, it has been confirmed that legendary Pokémon will need to be battled and weakened before capture - in a move that resembles the more traditional approach seen in the core series. Of course, the Kanto birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are all available, and once you've beaten them in battle, you'll get the chance to throw Poké Balls just like in any other wild encounter.
As a reminder, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! will launch exclusively on Switch on 16th November.
