A fun game for new up-and-coming Pokemon trainers. It allows the potential for great co-op play and an easy intro to the Pokemon universe.

In terms of the tried and true Pokémon formula, this one has some interesting quirks on the system. It's a much more relaxed experience than other Pokémon titles, but in that aspect it presents literally no challenge. That can be a benefit in some ways - especially if you're looking for just an enjoyable, relaxing time. If you're a hardcore Pokémon fan who looks for a challenge this one isn't it. It's geared almost exclusively toward casual Pokémon fans and children, and there's nothing wrong with that in and of itself, it just requires a tempered expectation.

Despite my original misgivings, I ended up having way more fun with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! than I ever expected. The Go-inspired catching system certainly has some issues, but nothing game-breaking, and while the battle system is streamlined, it is still classic Pokémon gameplay at heart. All of it comes together for a faster, less grindy Pokémon game that is absolutely perfect for newcomers to the genre.

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! are beautiful reimaginings of a video game classic, updating a 20-year-old game in ways which make it infinitely more accessible and user-friendly for a modern audience, while keeping the magic first discovered all those years ago. On the downside, the newly-introduced motion control mechanic is fun but flawed.

Pokemon Let's Go is a superb surprise, a fully-fledged Pokemon RPG with interactivity that brings the series to life in a way that's never been done before.
