New Trailers and Screenshots for ‘Let’s Go,’ Mega Evolving a Bit Different!

New trailers for Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee have been released! They showcase Vermilion City, the S.S. Anne, Lt. Surge, Mega Evolutions, Team Rocket, and of course the games’ beautifully updated music!

It seems Mega Evolutions will be part of the main storyline. According to TPCi’s press release, “The first three Pokemon that fans will be able to Mega Evolve during their adventure will be Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise.”

The Japanese trailer also reveals that you can choose to Mega Evolve Charizard into either Mega Charizard X or Mega Charizard Y during a battle. In previous games, you would have only been able to choose one depending on the corresponding Mega Stone attached to Charizard at the time.

TPCi also released a host of HD screenshots…

…as well as large artwork of Lt. Surge. Love how they’re channeling the old Ken Sugimori artwork with the stockier body proportions!

  1. X every time on Charizard, less damage from water and rock in exchange for more from ground is fair to me.

    I really hope this doesn't mean that held items wont be a thing. I haven't seen any shots in any trailers with held items yet, and now you can seemingly mega evolve with no stone. hopefully I'm wrong about this, but they already drastically changed wild encounters to match pokemon go, so I could certainly see this as a possibility.

    No, unless you catch one in the wild. You can't evolve the one you get at the start of the game

    Does this mean the next block of cards will be Mega GXs following the tradition of how X Y did it or-

    I saw the trailer. I love how non-Gen 1 moves are inthe game like Charge Beam on Raichu.That means this is better than the old one.
     
  8. Now you've got me worrying. Are they gonna cancel GXs and do EXs again!?!?!
     
  9. Of coarse not. They won't mega gx's either as that would be worse than lvl xs. A four card evolutionary line for two prizes will never work.

    Lol I'm surprised that they didn't just do Charizard out of the three original starters

    Seems likely that I wont get Mega Pidgeot. I know it said during the main story but why force people into the starter megas? I want my Mega Pidgeot during the story.

    I thought they confirmed that your starter can't evolve? Only ones you caught from the wild. I wonder also whether you can evolve eevee into all the evolutions, or if it is limited to the kanto evolutions. All remakes have included all evolutions available at the time of release for each pokemon, but I've heard some others say otherwise. I mean, you can have alolan forms, so I dont see why not the evolutions from other gens

    Also, I'm surprisingly excited that surge's mouth was moving as he spoke in the jp trailer, even if it wasnt a whole lot. Did anybody else notice that?

    These games are looking like Pokemon Yellow merged with the Pokemon Origins Anime and a splash of Pokemon Go.

    They're keeping it to Kanto Pokemon only for this game. That includes Alolan formes since they're technically Kanto Pokemon, just different formes of them.

    But yeah, they definitely confirmed you can't evolve your starter Pokemon (like in Pokemon Yellow). You'll be able to get other Pikachu and Eevee that you can evolve but one of the mechanics of this game is to have your partner Pokemon on your shoulder, not that you can't do that if you evolved them, but they want your partner to stay the same form the entire game since there are mechanics exclusive to them, such as finding hidden items.

    As for Eevee's evolutions, you'll only be able to evolve into it's Gen 1 evolutions. While every remake has allowed you to evolve to Eevee's most recent evolutions, this isn't exactly a remake, and even Nintendo considers it more of a spin-off.

    Yeah, Venusaur worked well in the original games, that is untill you reached the elite four. Wow, different experiences then. Only trouble I had with B2 was keeping myself interested enough to keep playing. What a bore.

    I just realize. Will this game mean another Gen 1 like TCG set (like Evolutions) will be released somewhere in the near future? Probably not, but one can hope :D (this time with the original galaxy holo please!)

    The option to choose which M Charizard to evolve into doesn't actually sound that bad; I love Charizard Y's weather based power, but it's very situational (especially when Tyranitar is running around and sandstorming everything), so being able to choose whether I want M Charizard X or Y is nice- even if M Charizard specializes in Physical attacks rather than Specials. ( mixed M Charizard anyone?)
     
  19. I think so, don't know about the OG galaxy hole though.
