Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee May Be Forward Compatible- Game Freak Says

The one thing that Game Freak and The Pokemon Company have been very clear about next year’s Pokemon game, widely assumed to be a new generation, is that it will be more like the traditional handheld Pokemon games that fans have come to know and love, and less like Pokemon GO or its Switch brethren, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, which are due out in November this year.

Speaking in an upcoming issue of Famitsu (with some early snippets kindly translated by NintendoEverything), Game Freak's Junichi Masuda who has directed multiple Pokemon games, including the upcoming Let’s Go games, has hinted at the possibility of forward compatibility. It appears that Masuda was asked about how players might be able to trade Pokémon from the Let's Go titles to others - here's his response “There have been times where you couldn’t bring Pokemon over from previous titles – I imagine that created some bad memories. I want to try and change that, if I can,”.

Now, this at least makes sense- Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee mark the debut of a brand new Pokemon, presumably the first Gen 8 Pokemon- so it makes sense that they will have to have some kind of connectivity with future games.

Masuda also provided a small comment on the 2019 core RPG release, suggesting that Game Freak is still treating the game primarily as a handheld experience with players using their own individual systems. “As for the 2019 title, we’re working with the idea that everyone will be playing on their own Switch. It’ll have the same kind of feeling as the previous games on handheld systems.”

Would you like to see the Pokémon Let's Go titles connect with the 2019 RPG? Let us know with a comment below. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee launch on Nintendo Switch exclusively, on November 16 this year.
