You can even connect to the Pokémon™ GO app* using a compatible smartphone to bring over Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region! Explore the diverse and vibrant region of Kanto! True-to-size wild Pokémon roam around in the game, so catch them like a real Pokémon Trainer by using motion, timing, and a well-placed Poké Ball™.

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.

The Pokemon Go catching system is a more relaxing way to fill out the Pokedex and grind for experience, and I never felt like I was missing out on battles because of it. Kanto is littered with charismatic trainers ready to fight. Some irritating UI design and issues with its motion controls add up to be a minor annoyance, but the addicting capture cycle and great challenges in the post-game keep me coming back to play.

Pokemon Let's Go is engineered to let youngsters play along with their parents, but there's a lot here for veterans to enjoy, too. It's relentlessly cute and colorful, and while the challenge level won't blister your skin, the new Coach Trainers will keep you hopping. We're still not sure about the Go-style method of catching wild Pokemon, but Pokemon Let's Go's ability to link-up to Niantic's app offers a quick and easy way to fill out your PokeDex.

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.
