Pokemon Let's Go Version Exclusive Pokemon Revealed

Will you join Club Pikachu or Club Eevee?

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee each have Pokémon exclusive to their game. That means filling out your PokéDex requires some trading with friends who own the version you don't have. You're probably not surprised: Version-exclusive Pokémon is a tradition that goes way back to Pokémon Red, Blue, and Green on the Game Boy.

Nintendo outlined how Pokémon Let's Go's version exclusivity works in a press release distributed earlier today. Some of Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu's exclusives include Oddish, Sandshrew, and Growlithe, while Pokémon Let's Go Eevee's exclusives include Bellsprout, Vulpix, and Meowth.

In other words, I need to make a choice between Vulpix / Ninetails and Growlithe / Arcanine. Sigh. Why must Game Freak resurrect these knotty feelings of despair I felt when I was forced to choose between Pokémon Red and Blue in 1998? Oh well. Sorry, Vulpix. I'm Team Arcanine—er, Team Let's Go Pikachu.

Thankfully, trading in Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee appears to be much easier than it was in the original Pokémon Red and Blue. In other words, choose the version of Let's Go that speaks to your heart. Don't stress. Just enjoy how damn cute it is. And don't forget to consult our Pokémon let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee guide for everything you need to know before its November 16 launch date on the Nintendo Switch.
