Pokemon: Let’s Go Has Mega Evolutions, Lt. Surge Still Has Raichu

The Pokémon Company debuted a new trailer for the upcoming Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee games today, which gave us our first taste of Mega Evolution, which will indeed be coming back for this new iteration. Mega Evolution is a temporary transformation that can only be triggered once per battle, but it grants the Pokemon a significant stat boost and often changes their type. Interestingly enough, it appears that there aren't any special items to get your Pokémon to hold such as Mega Stones this time around, or perhaps they're utilized in a different way.

So far only Mega Venasaur, Mega Blastoise and both versions of Mega Charizard have been shown, though fans can most likely count on seeing more as the game's release date nears. The Mega Evolutions are popular increasing a Pokemon's statistics in the battle.

Each of the three can be seen showcasing their mega forms in what looks like a stadium location of sorts with something in the background that looks strikingly similar to the Gyms in Pokemon Go. Whereas, it was previously only possible for a trainer to evolve their Pokemon once in any battle.


Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu and Evee launches for Nintendo Switch on November 14.

Jessie and James, the classic, iconic Team Rocket duo, from everyone's childhood also make their triumphant Pokemon Let's Go debut, sporting their usual team of low-leveled Poison-type Pokemon.
