E3 2018 shed some new light on the upcoming Pokémon games, Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee. We saw plenty of gameplay and now have a better idea about how some of the game's mechanics work. It was also announced that a bundle with the Poké Ball Plus controller will launch for $99.99 alongside the games on November 16, 2018.

Below is what we've found out about the games since the beginning of E3. If you want some basic information about the game, check our our previous article about the announcement of the games.

  • Catching Pokemon is done in a similar fashion to Pokémon Go, you'll be using motion controls to toss a Pokéball at a Pokémon. No need to weaken it at all. Whether you miss or not is based on the timing of your throw.
  • Experience points are gained from catching Pokémon and distributed evenly amongst your party. Better throws earn more Exp. when catching.
  • A second player can join you in co-op by shaking their Joy-con controller.
  • The size of a wild Pokémon can be determined by the color of its aura when seen in the overworld. Effects on gameplay are not yet known.
  • Pikachu or Eevee, depending on your version, will shake their tail if you're near a hidden item in the overworld.
  • An overhaul of the stats system seems to have taken place. All of a Pokemon's stats will start out the same and can be altered with various candies.
  • Pokémon can be transferred from Pokémon Go after a certain point in the game. It appears that your Pokémon will be in the Lv. 30-40 range when this happens.
  • When transferred from Pokémon Go, Pokémon will be held at an in-game location called Go Park. You'll then need to catch them from the park, sort of like a Safari Zone.
  • You'll be rewarded with candy in Pokémon Go for transferring Pokemon to the Let's Go games.
  • Pokémon can be stored on the new Poké Ball controller called the Poké Ball Plus. If you pre-order this controller it will come with the legendary Mew already on it.
