Pokemon: Let's Go Will Require Use of Motion Controls

Eevee will feature online gameplay which is really good to have but everyone has been confused about whether or not we will have to subscribe to Nintendo's online service to play the game online on Nintendo Switch.

Revealed in March's Nintendo Direct, the company will kick off their online service this September.

Importantly, Ishihara wants fans to say "this is what I've been waiting for" when the game emerges from its Poke Ball, and promises 'plenty of new Pokemon to encounter.' Sounds like a victor to us.

This means that if you're playing the new Pokémon Let's Go titles while on the go, even in awkward places like public transport and the like, you'll still be required to move the console around - even if only slightly to line up your throw. Instead, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee will launch with less liberty than previous games, no BattleSpot included.


In a new statement to Eurogamer, The Pokemon Company confirmed the Switch Online requirement.

Obviously, in order to play online, a Nintendo Switch Online subscription will be required.

It has been also made clear that the functionality will be limited as it will not include Battle Spot or Global Trading System which has been a part of older games. Additionally, due to Pokemon: GO connectivity, Pokemon are easier to obtain from the get-go.
