Choosing between Eevee and Pikachu can be tough, but decide to play Pokémon: Let’s Go easy. The game takes you back to Kanto, where the first three Pokémon games started. This setting will be familiar to anyone who has played Yellow Pokémon, and the capture sequence will be familiar to fans Pokémon GO.
Pokémon: Let’s go combine the main game and the mobile phone, creating its own identity somewhere in between. The game wants you to notice by providing a lovely setting for the various catch sequences, leveling up animations and generally going your way around Kanto. For coaches who are just starting their adventure, we have some tips and tricks to help you become a Pokémon League Champion.
How to catch Pokémon in Let’s Go
Let’s go Eliminate both random battles and fighting wild Pokémon. Instead there is a fishing minigame in which you throw a Pokéball at a wild Pokémon. A ring appears around each Pokémon to note the pitching position. The second loop gradually shrinks on the loop. Your goal is to get your Pokéball inside when it’s big enough for the Pokéball to fit inside. The better time you get, the more likely you’ll be to protect the wild Pokémon. You will know you’ve got a good pitch based on the text on the reading screen Pretty, Great, or Clever.
The other thing you must pay attention to is the color of the shrinking ring, be it green, yellow, orange or red. Green means the Pokémon should be easy to catch, while the red is on the other side of the scale. The color can be changed by feeding the Pokémon a berry to soothe it or by switching to a different Pokéball.
Not much has to do with the actual catch sequence, on the contrary. Just make sure you’re working fast and keep logging those Pokéball balls before it runs away. If you’re having problems with the motion controls in docked mode, handheld mode will largely remove the motion controls. In our experience, though, it’s easier to accurately throw in handheld mode.
How to earn more XP
Since random battles are gone, catching is the main source of XP. In fact, you can catch more XP than you fight if you persevere. Since catching Pokémon usually takes less than a minute, we recommend catching any Pokémon you see. You get more XP when catching quality (excellent rating), but you can rank the deck with a few tricks.
Getting the same kind many times
Getting combos can increase XP a lot. When you catch the same species more than once, the catch will increase to increase the XP you earn with each consecutive catch. Getting more than one of the same species also increases your chances of finding a Pokémon of that species with really good stats. So it pays off when it comes to hunting diligently.
Loves small and large Pokémon
Some Pokémon have a sparkling aura around them. Prioritize these ones over others, as this marker indicates that the Pokémon is small or large. By default, small and giant Pokémon generate more XP.
Switch Pokémon in your party
Since you don’t have to fight wild Pokémon, you don’t have to have the best Pokémon on your team. Thanks to the new Pokémon storage system that allows you to swap party members right from the menu, you can play the system a bit by leveling up Pokémon that normally don’t thrive in battle when caught. For example, if you want to upgrade your Nidoran to Nidorino, throwing it at your party while catching a wild Pokémon is faster than wasting a spot for it in battle, where it will earn less XP. more thanks to sharing experiences.
Send Pokémon to Professor Oak
Just because we recommend catching tons of Pokémon, doesn’t mean you should keep all of them. In the Pokémon box, you can send unwanted Pokémon to Professor Oak. In return, he will give you candies that you can use to upgrade the stats of your other Pokémon.
Travel with an additional Pokémon by your side
You’ll have a Pikachu or Eevee always on your tail, but you can also drop an extra Pokémon from its Pokéball. We started with Eevee but still have a Pikachu that we caught early on on our heels tour. The bonding level of your companion Pokémon increases when it comes out of the cramped Pokéball, and you can increase this even further by stopping to interact with it. You will be rewarded in battles at times when the Pokémon self-heals from its state conditions, refuses to faint, or avoids attacks.
Another benefit of having a Pokémon spying on you is that it will find hidden berries. When it stops and there is a text bubble on top, you’ll usually get a few berries.
Use Pokémon for you to ride
The bike shop is still in Kanto, but you can’t ride a bike. Never mind, however, there is a much more enjoyable travel option. Confusing Pokémon. If you release a Pokémon from its mountable ball, you will automatically jump on its back instead of seeing it follow you. There are regular Pokémon like Rapidash and more humorous options like Onix. Complete list of solvable Pokémon:
Talk to everyone you see
Many of the NPCs you meet between towns will want to fight you, but when you get to town, they are usually much less competitive. You will want to talk to everyone you see, wherever you go. NPCs sometimes offer you Pokémon, offer deals, or gift items. You can even get three initial starter Pokémon – Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur – by talking to the NPC.
After catching 30 Pokémon, you can talk to the person standing next to Bulbasaur in Cerulean City to receive grass-type Pokémon as a gift. On Route 24 just across the bridge, you can catch a Charmander if you have 50 species. Immediately after entering Vermillion City, Officer Jenny will offer you Squirtle if you have caught 60 Pokémon.
In addition to the beginners, you can also get Alolan versions of certain Pokémon by talking to NPCs in the Pokémon Center that want to trade. You can’t find these variations in the wild, so being a productive person pays off!
How to make cash
Your main source of income comes from combat coaches. You can earn enough throughout the game so you don’t have to worry about running out of money to buy Pokéballs and health items. But if you are grasping everything you see, you could start running out of money. Skip our tip on talking to all the people you see, don’t just talk to them once. Specifically, if you come across someone giving you a valuable jewelry like a Big Pearl or Nugget, keep in mind that location as you can come back tomorrow to pick up another one.
Compare strengths and weaknesses
Let’s go Designed as a more casual experience than the main entries in the series. That means it’s easy, even for late gym goers and the Elite Four. But you can still lose the game if you are careless with your strengths and weaknesses. In Let’s go, “Super efficient” moves are really effective. You need to pay attention to the type of Pokémon you are fighting to not only take them down quickly, but also prevent yourself from being knocked out. So yes, put a water-type Pokémon against fire, but don’t choose water-type when you’re against a grass-type Pokémon. Make sure you know which one gets the bonus in comparison to the other.
Search for Coach coaches
Coach coach is a new addition at this point in the game and asks you to take the initiative for battle by approaching them first and talking to them. You can spot Coach coaches by text bubble filled with ellipses above their heads. These coaches are often more challenging than the usual coaches in the same area. However, defeating them usually rewards you with TM (new moves to teach Pokémon), special candies, and more cash.
