Does Size Matter in Pokemon Let’s Go? What You Need to Know
Pokemon Let’s Go is a wonderfully-nostalgic trip back to Kanto for fans of the series. Essentially remakes of the Red and Blue games with shinier visuals, Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee largely keep a lot of features the same, albeit with some changes to cater to the more casual players that flocked to mobile title, Pokemon Go. As such, you may be wondering whether size matters in Pokemon Let’s Go.
Don’t be rude, you, laughing at the back! Well, here’s what you need to know.
Ultimately, yes, size matters in Let’s Go. There’s actually a couple of reasons why it matters too, so we’ll run you through them down below.
First off, size matters in terms of the rewards you’ll receive by simply catching these ‘mon in Let’s Go. Each time that you catch a smaller or bigger Pokemon, you’ll be granted additional experience than you would for catching a standard-sized version of that Pokemon.
You can figure out which ‘mon will reward you with a size experience bonus by keeping an eye out for any in the wild with a blue or red aura surrounding them. If they do, go ahead and snag them for a nice bit of bonus experience, alongside any additional bump you’ll get for your throw or chaining same Pokemon catches.
There is another reason why size matters in Pokemon Let’s Go, and that’s all about the amount of damage they’ll dish out when using specific moves. For example, the likes of Low Kick, Body Slam, and Grass Knot are all capable of dishing out a bit of extra damage if they’re being used by a ‘mon that is heavier than average.
From what we’ve gathered, there’s no buffed stats to Pokemon that are smaller than the average for their particular species. However, if we come across anything in Pokemon Let’s Go that states or suggests otherwise, we’ll be sure to update this guide and let you know.
That’s all you need to know about whether or not size matters in Let’s Go. For more tips, tricks, and guides for your return trip to Kanto, be sure to check out our ever-expanding Pokemon Let’s Go guide wiki.
