Pokemon News Issue #141

Welcome back to another newstastic issue of Pokemon News with me, Viger. I’ve got some interesting developments with Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee, and a little movie news as well. So let’s get right into it.

Two new trailers dropped yesterday for Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.


Both trailers showcase new gameplay footage as well as new aspects to the games themselves. For starters, literally, just like Pikachu, Eevee is receiving a gender difference in the form of a heart styled tail for the female version. Along with this slight change, both Pikachu and Eevee can be given different haircut styles along with the outfits that they can wear. To be fair, Eevee with styled hair looks cute, but Pikachu with styled hair looks a little creepy.

It was also revealed that, as expected, there will be version exclusives for each version, with specific Pokemon only being found in specific games. So far Oddish, Sandshrew, and Growlith are exclusive to Let’s Go Pikachu, while Bellsprout, Vulpix, and Meowth go with Let’s Go Eevee. With these exclusives revealed, I stand by my decision with going with Eevee.

A few other things were confirmed for the games. Legendary Pokemon will be encountered and fought with in the wild as opposed to simply trying to capture it like all the other Pokemon, and it has been confirmed that Jessie and James, and by extension Meowth, will be encountered in the game as well.

They even got the rose. All I need is to fight a giant mech that looks like a specific Pokemon, and we are good to go.



Now onto the little bit of movie news. “Pokemon: Everyone’s Story” was released yesterday in Japan. Like all other Pokemon movies that preceded it, a small teaser was revealed at the end of the movie for the next Pokemon Movie. This one wasn’t anything like the Zygarde tease before it, but it has got fans thinking. The teaser simply showed the title of the first Pokemon movie “Mewtwo Strikes Back”, but added “Evolution” to the end of it, giving it the changed title of “Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution”. Could this be the first time that the Pokemon Company is remaking one of their movies? If that is the case, what will they change with this remastering? No other information has been revealed, but as always, it is expected to release next year at around the same time. Until then, we can only speculate.


One final bit of info regarding Pokemon GO. Niantic recently released an anniversary picture that depicted the two trainers with each team leader and a bunch of Pokemon from Generations 1 through 3. But what is VERY interesting is that Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup are also seen in the picture as well, confirming that Generation 4 is coming soon to Pokemon GO. As to when it will drop, no further details have been given. #Gen4.

And that is it for Pokemon News. What do you think of the new changes to Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee? What do you think “Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution” will be about? Are you excited for Gen 4 in Pokemon GO? Let me know in the comments below.

And as always, I’ll see you guys in the next issue!
