How to Battle With Friends in Pokemon Let’s Go
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, the newest installment in the Pokemon franchise has released for the Nintendo Switch. Set in Kanto, Let’s Go puts players on a journey to relive the original Red and Blue, but this time, it features integration from the widely successful Pokemon Go.
Catching wild Pokemon has changed this time around. Gone are the days of having to weaken your enemy before capturing them. Now, there is no more battling the Pokemon you see in the wild. You will still be tasked with capturing them, and encouraged to capture multiples.
After catching a handful of your favorites, it’ll be time to challenge trainers around Kanto. Once you’ve defeated all of them, you’ll want to take your team online against friends.
How do you do that exactly, though? Well, look no further because we have the answer right here.
