We're just weeks away now from the next evolution of the Pokémon franchise. Game Freak will launch Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee on Nintendo Switch next month, giving players a blend of the traditional Pokémon formula and more modern GO-style gameplay. In the meantime, we got two more updates on the upcoming switch adventures today.
First up is a new "Adventure Awaits" trailer that gives us another extensive look at the Kanto region in HD. There isn't much new in terms of gameplay reveals here, but there's plenty of footage of trainers and their favorite Pokémon running, riding, surfing, and flying through the region that started it all. There are also plenty of looks at battling, catching Pokémon, encountering Legendary monsters, and even an appearance by Mewtwo.
Additionally, Pokémon producer Junichi Masuda gave fans a little teaser in a statement published by Polygon today. Masuda addressed the game's additional content that will only be accessible after beating the Elite Four, and it sounds like there are some challenges in store.
"A good portion of the more difficult stuff is in the post-game. There's ways to strengthen your Pokémon, and the reason you wanna do that is, you take on these master trainers, these really powerful trainers that you encounter after the main story." — Junichi Masuda
It sounds like famous trainers from other generations could be making a re-appearance, which is something fans of the core series have grown accustomed to seeing. Hopefully, there's plenty of interesting content to keep players hooked long after the credits have rolled.
