Is Let’s Go a Remake of Pokemon Yellow/Blue/Red?

Loosely, yes. It shares the same story with minor events changed throughout the journey. There are also new features, such as how you encounter wild Pokemon, which therefore makes it a new game and not a remaster.

What Other Differences Are There?

To name a couple, there are no HMs in Pokemon Let’s Go. Moreover, there is also XP share from the start (which can be turned off).

Can Let’s Go Be Played on the TV? (Graphics details)

Yes, Pokemon Let’s Go can be docked and played on TV. Furthermore, when played on TV the resolution will go up to full HD (1080p). When played on the Nintendo Switch the game is outputted in 720p.


Is Getting The Poke Ball Plus Worth It?

That depends on what you get out of it. We discuss what the Poke Ball Plus is and all its details below.

Can you Catch All 151 Pokemon?

Yes, but with a bit of work. The aforementioned Poke Ball Plus is the only way to get Mew. Of course you can transfer it from a friend and send it back to complete the Pokedex but that would be the only way. You’ll also need to trade to acquire the version exclusives. A full list of spawn locations can be found below.

Are there any New Pokemon?

Pokemon Let’s Go is based on the first generation and therefore the first 151 Pokemon. However, there is an exception to this. A new Pokemon has been discovered and its called Meltan. Meltan also has an evolved form Melmetal. You can read more about this new Pokemon and how to capture it in Pokemon Let’s Go below.


Even More Pokemon?

Pokemon Customisation?

Most definitely! Further customisation becomes available throughout the game.

Is There Pokemon Mega Evolution?

Yes! More details below.

Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Let’s Go?

What To Do After You Beat The Elite Four?
