New Pokemon Let's Go Moves Have Names Only a Kindergartner Could Love

Pokemon Let's Go have some juice and then take a nap.

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are remakes of Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow, but there's already a lot of new content in this Switch adventure. Nintendo's not done giving Pokémon Let's Go upgrades, though. A new trailer for the game and an accompanying Twitter thread reveals a host of new abilities that'll help you make your mark on Kanto.

First are "Secret Techniques" you can use outside battle. You can chop down trees, surf across water, or—for whatever reason—float away with the aid of balloons. Do not attempt to fly with helium balloons unless Eevee is supervising; things might not go well otherwise.

Also new to Pokémon Let's Go are "Partner Powers." If you treat your Pikachu or Eevee well, an icon might appear in battle instructing you to wave your Joy-Con. Doing so causes your pal to unleash a unique move: The thunderous "Pika-Papow" for Pikachu, and the fiery "Veevee Volley" for Eevee.

The fun with devastating moves bearing silly names doesn't stop there. Pikachu can also use "Splishy-Splash," a wave attack resembling Surf. Eevee has command of Bouncy Bubble (a Water-type attack), Buzzy-Buzz (an Electric-type move), and Sizzly-Slide (a Fire-type attack).

Well, those are certainly some fun kiddie words for attacks capable of flooring an Onix in one hit! I look forward to Pokémon Let's Go's kindergarten apocalypse. Look at our Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee for everything you need to know about the games. They arrive on November 16.
