Best Multiplayer and Co-Op Games of November 2018
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee
The Pokemon series made its debut on the Switch with the release of Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee this November.
While each game can be played entirely alone as you return to the familiar Kanto region to search for the original 151 and fight the Elite Four, there are also options for you and a friend to play through together in local co-op.
Two players can each use one Joy-Con controller to catch and fight Pokemon alongside each other in-game, and the Poke Ball Plus accessory also works as a separate controller as well. The second player will essentially be a support character when walking around in the wild, but can directly aid the first player in battles and when trying to catch Pokemon using the Pokeball throwing mechanics from Pokemon Go!
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on Nov. 16.
