Pokemon Let’s GO! will feature a new Pokemon
Yesterday, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company officially announced Pokemon Let’s GO! Pikachu/Eevee. Taking inspiration from the classic Pokemon Yellow and Pokemon GO, Let’s GO! is an all-new way to play.
It was also revealed that the next entry in the core Pokemon series will be released in 2019.
Pokemon Let’s GO! is designed to bring back the feelings of those classic Pokemon games. It’s set in Kanto, it features the original 151 Pokemon and allows your Pokemon to follow behind.
It was thought that only the first 151 Pokemon would be included, but today we’re learning that that’s not the case.
At the very end of the trailer for Pokemon Let’s GO!, players are told to prepare for a special Pokemon. It’s now been revealed, by the Pokemon Company CEO and the Pokemon Twitter account, that this is a new Pokemon.
This new Pokemon is one that’s never been seen before and will make its debut in Pokemon Let’s GO!
Pokemon CEO: one completely new Pokemon will be in the game. Completely all new

No additional details about this new Pokemon have been revealed as yet, but it has been confirmed that the new Pokemon is entirely new and not just a new form of an existing Pokemon.
Given that there’s a Pokemon Let’s GO! Eeevee edition, an obvious suggestion as to the new Pokemon is a brand new evolution of Eevee. If that was the case, it would make a lot more sense to get the Eevee version over Pikachu’s.
Whatever this new Pokemon is, we’re going to have to wait to find out.
