A couple of months after launch, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee have received their first update. Version 1.0.1 is now live.

Today’s update primarily addresses an issues with Mystery Gift. We have the full patch notes from Nintendo below.

Pokemon made its proper debut on Switch last month with the two Let’s Go games. Traditionally a handheld-focused series, the franchise finally had a mainline entry on a console.

Pokemon president Tsunekazu Ishihara spoke about this in an interview with Dime. He pointed out that Switch has a few different playstyles, causing it “harder to make a new mainline Pokemon game than I had originally thought.”

Compared to some other recent RPGs, reaching the “end” of Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee doesn’t take terribly long. Director Junichi Masuda was asked about this in the Japanese strategy guide, which was then published in the English version.

Masuda explained that he didn’t want Pokemon: Let’s Go to entirely monopolize your time – especially in the age of smartphones and the fact that people play other games. The team therefore increased the walking speed “and kept the playtime needed to reach the Hall of Fame on the shorter side.”
