The Pokémon goodness just keeps coming, this time in the form of yet another brand new Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! trailer.
Yes, on top of the brand new limited edition Switch console design featuring Pikachu and Eevee, and the promise of a world exclusive trailer airing next weekend, this trailer shows off Secret Techniques, partner-exclusive moves, and much more.
As you can see in the video, Pikachu or Eevee can help players overcome obstacles they encounter by learning Secret Techniques. These special skills can be used by the player’s partner Pokémon outside of battle to clear away trees (Chop Down), glide across water (Sea Skim), and quickly revisit towns and cities that have already been explored (Sky Dash), essentially replacing the need for HMs as seen in previous titles.
The player’s partner Pikachu or Eevee can also use exclusive moves that can help players face any challenge during their adventures, reminding us a little of Pokémon Sun and Moon's Z-Moves. Once the player’s relationship with their partner reaches a certain level, the partner Pokémon will occasionally send a sign during battle that its partner power can be used. Pikachu can use 'Pika Papow' and 'Splishy Splash', while Eevee can use 'Veevee Volley' and 'Bouncy Bubble', 'Buzzy Buzz', and 'Sizzly Slide'.
The trailer also gives us our first look at Celadon City, including the Gym Battle which takes place there against Erika. Across all trailers presented so far, we've now seen half of the game's Gyms in action - perhaps the intention is to show all eight before the games are released?
What a day for Pokémon fans! Is this the end of the news for today?
