Pokemon Let’s Go – Which one to get, Pikachu or Eevee?

Today marks the release date of Pokemon Let’s Go. This piece of news made all kinds of trainers from all over the world to set off on a new adventure through Kanto with their fellow Pokemon. Or this would be the case if they could decide between the Pikachu and Eevee versions of the game.

That’s exactly this article is being written. You could go either way and hopefully we can help you decide. In the end the decision will consist of a personal preference. Despite the fact that Pokemon Let’s Go represents a remake of the old Pokemon games, they are far from being traditional.

Exclusive Pokemon

Each version of the game, Pikachu and Eevee, comes with a list of exclusive Pokemon which you can come across solely in that respective version. So, let’s see what is in store.

Since you can easily transfer Pokemon from one device to another, exclusive Pokemon are not that important. The biggest deciding factor remains and that is which of the two partners you prefer. Both of them are extraordinary examples of their species and are capable of learning some special moves that no other Eevee or Pikachu could.

By the end of the game you will see that both Pokemon end up being some ridiculously powerful mutant pocket monsters, being far stronger than their normal versions. They both gain access to some special partner moves represented by powerful elemental attacks that can cause various effects on the status of your opponents. Pikachu can learn Fally Fall, Zappy Zap and Splishy Splash, while Eevee can learn five, Sizzly Slide, Glitzy Glow, Darky Dark, Buzzy Buzz and Bouncy Bubble.
