Smash Bros. Ultimate/Pokemon: Let's Go to bump Switch sales

The revelation that Eevee could have bangs and Pikachu could rock a bouffant curl very much broke the internet, but that hasn't stopped me wanting to give my personal Pikachu a new do. Just remember, with the exception of Meltan, the new mythical Pokemon, this is a one-way process - Pokemon can travel from Go to Let's Go, but not the other way around.

One of the most appealing aspects of the original Pokemon Yellow game was the ability to catch all three of the original starter Pokemon from Red and Blue, including the popular fire-type starter Charmander.

To transfer Pokemon, you need to reach Fuchsia City in Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu & Eevee! Scroll down to and select the "Nintendo Switch" option and then select "connect to Nintendo Switch". It's here that you'll be massaging your Pokemon's scalp to bring forth the full spectrum of hairstyles, which seem to be the same across both games, as far as I can tell.

The result is a nice entry point into role-playing games for younger players and genre novices, with enough nostalgia to interest veteran Pokemon fans. And while the "Let's Go" games are less demanding than core Pokemon titles, it is still necessary to power up Pokemon and construct a balanced party of six.

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! are now available for the Nintendo Switch.

Caution: Pokemon can not be transferred from Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu & Eevee! to Pokemon Go. Take control in Let's Go on the Switch and head to the GO Park complex in Fuschia City. Hit that, then transfer Pokemon by pressing on them and confirming.

"Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu!" and "Let's Go, Eevee!" are rated E, meaning suitable for all audiences and each game retails for around $80.

Special event Pokemon like Pikachu with sunglasses or Squirtle with sunglasses can not be transferred to Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu & Eevee!
