Come on, Pikachu! enjoy old and new fans, Top News & News Games & Applications


The Pokemon hype is far from subsiding, with the launch of a pair of new and highly anticipated Pokemon games – Pokemon: Let 's Go, Eevee! and Pokemon: Come on, Pikachu! (tested version) – two weeks ago.

The two games are exclusive to the Nintendo Switch and, like the first Pokemon role-playing game released in the 1990s for the Nintendo Game Boy, put players in the role of a young Pokemon trainer in Pallet Town that penetrated the Kanto region by starting Pokemon.

This mission is simple: Collect eight Pokemon sports badges in this area, defeat the Elite League Four Pokemon coach and capture all 151 first generation Pokemon to become Pokemon masters.

The two titles are similar, except for one starting with Pikachu and the other with Eevee. This first Pokemon is also your partner Pokemon. It will stick to your shoulder (if it's Pikachu) or sit on your head (Eevee) as you explore the world of the game in the perspective of a third person.

You can pat your partner Pokemon and feed him fruit to increase your friendship. This extra attention will pay dividends during the battle because it can avoid attacks if the level of friendship is high.

While the original Pokemon Game Boy game requires you to defeat Pokemon in battle before getting a chance to capture them, the capture mechanism here is simplified.


    PRICE: $ 79.90 (Nintendo Switch only)

    FLOW: Role playing



This is similar to the Pokemon Go (Pogo) mobile game, where you throw a Pokeball to catch Pokemon. This helps reduce the sway of the game because there are many trainers in the game, including Jesse and James of Team Rocket, who are trying to fight you.

You can remove the Switch Joy-Con controller and use gesture controls to simulate the throw-ball to catch Pokemon. Or when the controller is installed on the Switch console, you can use the A button to throw.

Unfortunately, you cannot use the Nintendo Pro Controller to control your character or throw a Pokemon when you insert the Switch on the television.

Or, you can use the new Pokeball Plus ($ 89.90) device Nintendo has released. This device is shaped like a Pokeball and is equipped with a joystick that you can press and control movement. The biggest selling point is that it comes with a Mew Pokemon that is hard to find.

In Pokemon: Let 's Go, you no longer face Pokemon randomly, unlike the previous games. You can really see Pokemon walking or flying in the game world. Thus, you can move your character towards Pokemon to start the capture sequence.

However, for stronger Pokemon like Snorlax or Articuno, you must fight before you can catch it.

You can take up to six Pokemon into this turn based battle. Each Pokemon has up to four skills that can be used in battle. You can change Pokemon during battles, which are useful – especially when you find an opponent that doesn't match. For example, when your water Pokémon is worried that Pokemon Onix appears against Pokemon Blastoise water.

The graphics of the game world, characters and Pokemon are amazing – not photo-realistic, but fantastic in the sense of an anime. All Pokemon move as they should while their battle animations are detailed and entertaining.

Next, I finally feel like Ash Ketchum, the main protagonist of the Pokemon cartoon series. This is because my Pikachu can defeat a much stronger opponent, which doesn't happen with Pogo.

If you are a Pogo trainer, you have an additional incentive to transfer your Pokemon Pogo to this game. Doing so not only enhances your experience, but you will also receive a mystery box in Pogo. Opening this mystery box allows you to capture the newly sought Pokemon Meltan. Enough said.

• Verdict: With a balanced blend of old game mechanics and new capture mechanisms, coupled with great graphics and games, Pokemon: Let 's Go, Pikachu! (or Eevee) will appeal to Pokemon fans both new and old.
