Later this year, The Pokémon Company and Nintendo will be releasing two new Pokémon titles, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!. Ahead of the launch, today we get a closer look at what to expect from the role-playing games.

Pikachu and Eevee won’t be evolving in these contests. Instead, the characters will travel on their trainer’s shoulder or head, free from their Poké Balls. You’ll be able to pet, feed, and tickle your Pokémon, in addition to changing their hairstyles.

Professor Oak, Pewter City gym leader Brock, and Cerulean City gym leader Misty are all returning, but the game’s opponent will be an all-new character.

Trainers will also have the opportunity to challenge one another and trade Pokémon. In addition, two people can play simultaneously on one system for the first time.
