With less than a month to go until the released of Pokèmon Let’s Go, more information is slowly being leaked with regards to what we should expect. During a recent interview with Eurogamer, developers Junichi Masuda and Kensaku Nabana spoke about the post-game content, in the form of Master Trainers. These trainers can be challenged to a 1-on-1 battle specialising in a single Pokèmon with 151 of the trainers to be found around Kanto. Defeating each trainer earns you the title of Pokèmon master for that particular monster.
The Pokèmon Company have now released a video giving us a first look at this content and how it’ll work. You’ll first have to become Pokèmon Champion for these trainers to appear but with the sheer amount of them, it should keep us busy whilst trying to complete our Pokèdex, something which lacked a little from the original releases 20 years ago.
With each encounter set to be an epic battle for dominance…….we await to so see how Magikarp on Magikarp will pan out!!!!
Another interesting snippet from the interview is regarding Meltan, the mysterious Pokèmon that appeared and subsequently was announced in Pokèmon Go a few weeks back, take a read below:
“Junichi Masuda: So, well this info will actually be released on the 10th of October, but you know, we’ll tell you now – you’re under embargo, so you know don’t go talking about it at the bar or whatever! [laughs].
So, after you transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Go to Pokémon Let’s Go, you’ll receive a Mysterious Box in Go, and then if you open that box, for a limited time, you’ll be able to encounter Meltan.
Is it possible to transfer Meltan back to Let’s Go?
PR clarifies: Yes, via the usual method.”
It’s not long now until we can get our hands on the newest member of the Pokèmon family it seems
Pokèmon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Pokèmon Let’s Go! Eevee are set to release on 16th November 2018 on the Nintendo Switch.
