Press Release - Secret Techniques, Exclusive Moves, and More Revealed in Latest Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Announcement

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced new details about exclusive Pokémon moves, Secret Techniques, and much more in the highly anticipated Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games, releasing on November 16 on the Nintendo Switch system. Both games are designed for players taking their first steps into the Pokémon video game world as well as for longtime fans wanting a new way to play Pokémon.

Clear the Way: Secret Techniques
Pikachu or Eevee can help players overcome obstacles they encounter and make travel easier in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! by learning Secret Techniques. These special skills can be used by the player’s partner Pokémon outside of battle to clear away trees (Chop Down), glide across water (Sea Skim), and quickly revisit towns and cities that have already been explored (Sky Dash).

Powerful Partner-Exclusive Moves
The player’s partner Pikachu or Eevee can use exclusive moves that no other Pokémon can use. These exclusive moves will help players face any challenge during their adventures in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! And once the player’s relationship with their partner reaches a certain level, the partner Pokémon will occasionally send a sign during battle that its partner power (one of its exclusive moves) can be used. Even if the partner Pokémon is not in the battle, it may still send a sign. If the player responds, the partner will bolster the Pokémon in battle by boosting its stats.

Two of Pikachu’s exclusive moves are Pika Papow and Splishy Splash. Pika Papow is also a partner power, so it’s performed when the partner sign appears during battle. The power of Pika Papow can increase depending on how strong the player’s bond is with their partner Pikachu. The Water-type move Splishy Splash can paralyze opponents.

Pika Papow Veevee Volley

Eevee’s exclusive moves include the partner power Veevee Volley as well as Bouncy Bubble, Buzzy Buzz, and Sizzly Slide. When Eevee uses Veevee Volley, its power can increase depending on Eevee’s relationship with the player. Bouncy Bubble, a Water-type move, will heal Eevee for half the damage dealt to the opponent. The Electric-type move Buzzy Buzz paralyzes the opponent. An opponent will always be left with the burned status condition if it is hit with Eevee’s Fire-type move, Sizzly Slide.

Best of Friends: Befriending a Partner Pokémon
Players can interact with their partner Pokémon when they are not in battle by selecting the Pikachu or Eevee icon on the main menu. By petting and playing with their partner Pokémon, players will improve their relationship with Pikachu or Eevee and can receive in-game benefits such as presents. When the game is in handheld mode, players can use the touch screen to play directly with their partner Pokémon.

Explore the Kanto Region: Celadon City
Celadon City is one of the many interesting locations in the Kanto region that players can explore in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! This large city, known as the “City of Rainbow Dreams,” has an arcade and even a department store. Erika, sometimes called “the Nature-Loving Princess,” is the Gym Leader of the Celadon City Gym and specializes in Grass-type Pokémon.


Special Nintendo Switch Bundle
A special bundle that includes a Nintendo Switch system, Pikachu- and Eevee-themed Joy-Con controllers, a pre-installed copy of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, and a Poké Ball Plus will be released on November 16. The front of the dock features Eevee and Pikachu, while the back of the console has silhouettes of both partner Pokémon.

Switch Switch Switch

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018.

Pokémon Center and Store Temporary Closures / September 2018 Nintendo Direct Delayed

Posted by Sunain | September 7th 2018 at 08:23 AM EDT
Tags: Pokémon Center, Twitter, Pokémon Store, Nintendo Direct, Pokémon GO
Comments: 0
On September 4th, 2018, Typhoon Jebi made landfall over the Kansai region of Japan causing massive flooding to Kansai International Airport. On September 5th, 2018, a 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit Hokkaido, Japan. Due to these disasters, The Pokémon Company and Nintendo announced temporary closures to some Pokémon Center and Stores as well as rescheduling the September 2018 Nintendo Direct.


Pokémon Store Kansai Airport

The Kansai International Airport Pokémon Store recently announced that they were expanding, but due to access to the airport being very difficult due to a bridge being damaged, the store will be closed for the time being. It will be announced on the Voice Pokémon website when it will reopen again.

Pokémon Center Sapporo

Due to the earthquake impacting the local power grid, the Pokémon Center will be closed and hopefully reopen on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 at 10am JST.

Pokémon Store New Chitose Airport

The New Chitose Airport Pokémon Store was also affected by power outages due to the earthquake and it will be closed for the time being. The stores reopening will be announced on the Voice Pokémon website.

September 2018 Nintendo Direct

Nintendo originally announced that a Nintendo Direct would take place on September 6th, 2018 at 6pm EST but that was mere hours before the earthquake in Hokkaido. Due to that powerful earthquake, Nintendo decided to delay the planned Nintendo Direct and informed viewers that they would provide a new time and date for the broadcast.


Pokémon GO - September 8th - 10th, 2018 - Moltres Day and EX Raids Canceled for Hokkaido Japan

Niantic also posted on the Japanese Pokémon GO Twitter account that Moltres Day and EX Raids scheduled for September 8th, 2018 to September 10th, 2018, were canceled in the Hokkaido region of Japan due to the earthquake. No rescheduled events were announced.

Pokémon GO - Enjoy Guaranteed Lucky Pokémon!

Posted by Sunain | September 5th 2018 at 05:07 PM EDT
Tags: Press Release, Pokémon GO, Niantic
Comments: 0
Niantic has announced that as of today, if a player trades a Pokémon that was in storage from July 2016 to August 2016, the launch month of Pokémon GO, that traded Pokémon will be guaranteed to become a Lucky Pokémon! Lucky Pokémon that were the result of a trade are also more powerful than before.


Enjoy Guaranteed Lucky Pokémon!

Trainers, How many Lucky Pokémon do you have so far? Professor Willow has unearthed another discovery related to the nature of Lucky Pokémon, and now trades that result in Lucky Pokémon are more beneficial to both Trainers!

The nature of Lucky Pokémon remains the same: the more time a Pokémon spends in a Trainer’s Pokémon storage, the higher its chance of becoming a Lucky Pokémon when traded. Starting now, if you trade a Pokémon that has spent time in a Trainer’s Pokémon storage since July 2016 to August 2016, it is guaranteed to become a Lucky Pokémon!

Plus, Lucky Pokémon that result from a trade will be more powerful than ever before! Lucky Pokémon will still require less Stardust to power up, so your new Lucky Pokémon can quickly become much stronger!

If either you or your friend has received 10 or more Lucky Pokémon, the guarantee won’t be in effect, so keep that in mind! Now is the perfect time to bring old friends back to Pokémon GO and work together to complete your Kanto Pokédex!

So best of luck, Trainers! Stay safe, and happy exploring!
