As the name (and past leaks) suggest, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company see the Let's Go games as the evolution for players brought in by Pokemon Go to continue the series and thus, the catching mechanics and designs are similar.
Nintendo Switch owners have been waiting for a proper Pokemon game to land on the hybrid handheld ever since the system first released back in March of a year ago.
Alolan Exeggutor appears to have been added specifically to celebrate the announcement of Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee, which will feature Pokemon GO integration as previously rumored.
The news about the new games was revealed at a special event in Japan, and also promised in a press release that another Pokemon game was still in the works. While Pokemon Go and even Super Mario Run can be considered one-hit wonders, this cross-platform strategy and accessories could be just what Nintendo and Pokemon Co. need to secure ongoing revenue.
"For many people, Pokemon Go was their first experience with the Pokemon brand, so we have crafted these two new titles to be an accessible entry point to our core RPG series while giving our longtime fans a new way to play Pokemon". The new games will also be able to link up with the smartphone app via Bluetooth to transfer pokemon caught out in the real world from players' phones to their Nintendo Switch.
Three new Pokemon titles will be introduced for Nintendo's Switch console later this year.
Alolan Pokemon were first announced for Pokemon GO last week, and Niantic has now made at least one Alolan Pokemon go live in the game.
In theory, owners of accessories are more likely to pay for further games and in-game items.
Using the Switch's touchscreen controls, players can battle their chosen Pokemon against other pocket monsters in the area simply by tapping on the enemy creature.
It'll be free-to-start, according to the official Pokemon account.
