Rumors: Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu & Pokémon Let’s Go! Eevee Are Yellow Remakes For Switch
You know it’s getting close to E3 when rumors drop out of the sky every day. The latest round of Pokémon Switch rumblings suggest that the new games (there will be two like usual) will be: Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go! Eevee. They will supposedly be remade versions of Pokémon Yellow for the Switch.
Perhaps most enticing is that the game, again according to rumors, will have Pokémon Go integration. Players will receive rewards in the Switch game and in Pokémon Go for linking the two together. A new accessory would facilitate the transfer of data.
Earlier we had mentioned that Emily Rogers said the new Pokémon Switch titles would be announced before the end of this month. She also hinted that many people would be surprised by the names, which falls in line with these new rumors.
Obviously it’s a good idea to view these rumors with skepticism. Even if they turn out true, let’s not jump to conclusions about how the games will play, what they’ll look like, etc. It’s best to see the full reveal and then make some opinionated judgments, right?
