Nintendo has announced that a free Pokémon Let’s GO, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let’s GO, Eevee! demo is now available on the Nintendo eShop.
This will let you get a feel for what it’s like to become a Pokémon Trainer, with the chance to explore Viridian Forest with Pikachu or Eevee by your side.
The games are based on Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition and, based on which game you choose to buy, Pikachu or Eevee will hang on your shoulder or ride on your head.
You can swing your Joy-Con to throw a Poké Ball and catch the wild Pokémon that you encounter, a gameplay mechanic that will be familiar to those that have played Pokémon GO. There is also the chance to share the Joy-Con between two players in local co-op, letting you explore, catch Pokémon and battle together.
Pokémon Let’s GO, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let’s GO, Eevee! are now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
