It's Pokémon Let's Go Launch day, and trainers around the world are setting out on a new adventure through Kanto with their partner Pokémon. That is, unless they can not decide between the Eevee and Pikachu versions of the game. We're here to help. You should definitely choose Eevee. Or maybe Pikachu.
Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal preference. Pokémon Let's Go games are remakes of the original Pokémon games, they are far from traditional entries in the series. Pokémon Go world, where anyone can catch monsters as long as they have a compatible mobile device. And once caught, those monsters can be transferred to the Nintendo Switch version of their choosing.
Pokémon game versions-exclusive Pokémon. In older games if, say, Sandshrew were only available in one version, players would have to trade online or in person for one. Pokémon Go and transfer it over.
Pokémon below Pokémon Go. If you do not, however, then carefully consider the two lists and see if you can. If I did not have mobile phone, I might have gone away with Pikachu, because I can not live without Sandshrew and can not be bothered to trade with people.
Pikachu Version Exclusive Pokémon
Eevee Version Exclusive Pokémon
With exclusive Pokémon not being that important, the greatest factor in the decision is which of the two partners you prefer. If it's Eevee, then you're a good person deserving of respect and love. If it's Pikachu, then you could be a monster, I really could not say.
Only kidding. I love all of you Poképeople equally, no matter what horrible mistakes you make. There are plenty of reasons to choose Pikachu over Eevee. Ikone Ōtani, the voice of Pikachu, for one of the dulcet sounds. Every "pika pi" from the electric mouse's mouth is ridiculously adorable. And since Pikachu has been seeking a star in the animation, its version feels more official.
That said, we've had Pikachu following a game before. The little zaprat had his own game in Pokémon Yellow . We need some new blood. We need Eevee.
Eevee is ridiculously cute, especially when wearing a hat and glasses. Its voice, while not quite as iconic as Pikachu's, is light and charming. Voice actress Aoi Yūki what is the voice of Pascal in Nier Automata along with countless other anime and video game roles. As an added plus, if your Eevee turns out to be a female, she'll have a heart shape on the tip of her tail. How cute!
A lot of this is personal preference, as many normal deciding factors between the two pocket monsters are zero and void. Neither of the partners Pokemon evolve-they simply refuse. If you want a Raichu or a Vaporeon, you'll have to catch an extra Pikachu or Eevee. And both of them appear in catchable form in each other's game, so it's not like you're on the other hand.
Both partners are exceptional examples of their species, capable of learning special moves no other Pikachu or Eevee can. By the end of the game, both wind up being ridiculously powerful mutant pocket monsters, far stronger than normal.
Both gain access to special partner moves, powerful elemental attacks that cause status effects on opponents. Pikachu can learn three (Zippy Zap, Fally Fall, Splishy Splash), while Eevee can learn five (Sizzly Slide, Buzzy Buzz, Bouncy Bubble, Darky Dark and Glitzy Glow). The powers each Pokémon winds up with the end of the game depends on the player.
Pokémon are not important, it comes down to which two you like better. Who do you want to see in cutscenes? Pikachu?
Shoulder or head? Electric or normal? Evil or good? (Maybe not that last one.) Just pick the one you love the most. Find someone else with the game. Or flip a coin. They're both good games, Brent.
Eevee, because we love you. And if all else fails, you can always pull a 'Why Not Both?'
