When viewing the Pokemon Let's Go trailer, it's quickly obvious that Game Freak turned to the Pokemon Go mobile games for inspiration.

The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have announced that two new games in the long-running Pokemon series, titled Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, will be released for Nintendo Switch on November 16.

Update: Pokemon Quest is available now for Nintendo Switch and will come to mobile at the end of June 2018.

"Chances are that Nintendo will dominate holiday sales not only this year, but also next year", said Serkan Toto, founder of Tokyo-based games consultancy Kantan Games Inc. Players also benefit from a new local multiplayer function, which makes catching Pokemon and battling NPCs a lot easier, similar to how players can take down gyms quicker when playing with a friend in Pokemon Go.

Dedicated trainers can also splash out on a Poke Ball Plus, a special controller that will let you feel your Pokemon prey trapped inside it, and has motion controls, lights vibration, and sounds.

An "all-new core series" Pokemon RPG is also in development, due out in the second half of next year. The gadget will initially be sold only in Japan. A leaked list of Alolan Pokemon in Pokemon GO appeared earlier this week, confirming that basically every Alolan Pokemon is already prepped to launch in the game. The Let's Go games have been made as home console experiences hinting that 2019's Pokemon games would be more focussed towards handhelds. According to a report from Nintendo-focussed gaming site, Nintendo Everything (via ResetEera) it's been discovered that domains for these two possible titles - PokemonLetsGoPikachu.com and PokemonLetsGoEevee.com were registered by CSC Corporate Domains.
