The New Trailer for Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee is So Cute, You'll Barf Rainbows

Bulbasaur's legs! His tiny little legs!

There's a new trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee on the Nintendo Switch, and it's so cute, you might just die upon viewing it. Viewer discretion is advised.

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee is, without a doubt, tailored for younger players, especially younger players eager to explore Kanto with an experienced guardian. If you're an old and jaded Pokémon trainer who decided you're going to skip this candy-colored adventure, however, think again. The trailer dropped earlier today by the Pokémon Company will rip apart your thorny exterior like a Charizard's flame blasting through a Venusaur's leafy scales.

The new trailer demonstrates how you can customize your trainer and your partner Pokémon. That's interesting on its own, as is the new footage of Brock and Misty in their home Gyms. But the sight of Kanto's starter Pokémon trundling behind you as you walk around Kanto is enough to make you gasp and slap your hands against your cheeks. Look at how Charmander waddles! Look at how Bulbasaur lopes! Look at how Squirtle tries to keep up with you on those stubby little legs of his! Oh my gosh!

The trailer also gives you a glimpse of select Pokémon you can ride on as you explore your surroundings, including Lapras, Onix, and Arcanine. Arcanine. Pardon me while I turn around and ugly-cry at the prospect of riding on the back of my favorite Pokémon.

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are coming to the Nintendo Switch on November 16. Our Pokémon Let's Go guides tell you everything you need to know about the game other than "It's SO. ADORABLE."
