New Pokémon: Let’s Go Trailer Showcases Customization and Gym Leaders

Seemingly out of the blue Kanto sky, The Pokémon Company has let loose on another trailer for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! that highlights customization, Pokémon bonding, Gym Leaders, and more.

The trailer and information was relayed earlier this morning via the social media channels for both Nintendo and The Pokémon Company. The footage goes into showing fans a bit more of what has already been known about the games, but with some areas and scenes not seen yet in previous demonstrations.

Most notably, the video and subsequent images released give an early glimpse of how both trainer and partner Pokémon customization will work. Either Pikachu or Eevee can be male or female, with visible differences to mark the gender. Many outfits for the trainer and Pokémon to wear will be available, and unique hairstyles can even be selected for Pikachu and Eevee.

This trailer is also the first sighting of Cerulean City Gym Leader and fan favorite character Misty, who has received a redesign from her past appearances. Once again, she will be the second Gym Leader that trainers will encounter after departing from Pewter City after taking down its Gym Leader, Brock.

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are still expected to launch alongside the Pokeball Plus accessory on November 16 for Nintendo Switch.
