This holiday season the Pokémon franchise is evolving once again with the launch of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! on Nintendo Switch. The twin games are remakes of Pokémon Yellow with modern graphics and game mechanics, as well as some features from Pokémon Go. Because they're revisiting Kanto, the Let's Go games are sticking to the original 151 monsters, but they're not going entirely old school with the roster.
Thanks to new scans from Japanese publication CoroCoro, we have confirmation of something fans have been speculating about for a while now. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! will feature Mega Evolutions! Originally introduced in the sixth generation of games, Mega Evolution is a mechanic that allows your Pokémon to take on a new form that surpasses its normal, fully-evolved form for the duration of the battle.
CoroCoro has confirmed that the Key Stone and Mega Stone items will return from previous games. Each Pokémon with a Mega Evolution must be equipped with the appropriate stone to unleash it. So far CoroCoro has confirmed that Venusaur, Blastoise, and Charizard (both versions) will have their Mega Evolutions in Let's Go.
