With each new Pokemon game, there tends to be an official guide. That will again be the case with Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee.

Amazon provides the following description:

In a recent issue of Famitsu, the Japanese magazine published a pretty lengthy interview with Pokemon president Tsunekazu Ishihara. Ishihara had plenty to say about Pokemon: Let’s Go: Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee as well as the 2019 entry, the Poke Ball Plus, Pokemon GO, and more.

We’ve gone ahead and prepared a full translation of Famitsu’s interview. Read the full discussion with Ishihara below.

The official Pokemon website in Japan has uploaded screenshots and some information for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee showing off two new customization options for Pikachu & Eevee. Customization allows you to put items such as flowers to your Pokemon’s ear, body or tail.

Pokemon CEO and president Tsunekazu Ishihara has explained why the new Let’s Go games are based on the Game Boy classic Pokemon Yellow.

In an interview with Famitsu in one of its recent issues, Ishihara mentioned that they wanted to expand the idea of walking around with a partner Pokemon, which was featured in Pokemon GO. Pikachu can also be seen with Ash in the anime, while Eevee has been popular since it can evolve in various ways.

Pokemon CEO and president Tsunekazu Ishihara wasn’t always a believer in Switch. In fact, he told Nintendo prior to its release that it wouldn’t be successful. He felt that “in the age of the smartphone, no one would carry out a game console.”

Switch did end up becoming a success in the end having sold close to 20 million units as of Nintendo’s last fiscal year. Ishihara came to understand that “the key to a successful game is quite simple: software with absolute quality leads sales of hardware.”

Alongside Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee, Nintendo will release Poke Ball Plus. Both games can be played entirely with the accessory alone. You’ll get the same functionality as you would from a standard controller, and perhaps a bit more.

According to Pokemon: Let’s Go producer Junichi Masuda, who appeared during a play session event in Japan, the Poke Ball Plus’ is superior to that of the Joy-Con – HD Rumble and all. This is due to what’s included inside the device, allowing for stronger vibration.

You’ll be able to pick up the Poke Ball Plus when Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee launch on November 16.
