Remember Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!? The launch of the first mainline Pokémon games on Switch feels like a small lifetime ago now, but The Pokémon Company has treated them to a charming festive new TV spot.
The games were hit with mixed reactions from fans when they were first announced – the ties to smartphone title Pokémon GO and the stripped-back nature of the games' RPG mechanics left some a little underwhelmed, but a cute reimagining of Pokémon Yellow's Kanto region and the introduction of Pokémon appearing on the overworld were real plus points.

It makes sense for a new ad to appear over Christmas; according to the latest official figures from Nintendo, the Let's Go titles haven't sold nearly as many copies as Pokémon Sword and Shield have. That's to be expected – historically, Pokémon remakes never sell as well as new generation games – but it can't hurt to give them another push over the holiday period.
Do you own a copy of one (or both) of the Let's Go games? Did you enjoy your time with it? Let us know in the comments.
