Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee changed things up quite a bit for being mainline Pokemon games. Yea, Let’s Go might be a Pokemon GO-influenced remake of Pokemon Yellow, but according to series producer Junichi Masuda, these two games are not spin-offs and are core titles just like any other Pokemon game.
Some big changes that Let’s Go brought to the series are the removal of random encounters, Pokemon battles with wild monsters, and the connectivity to the mobile game, Pokemon GO, letting players transfer their Pokemon over from their smartphone into their Switch.
Masuda states in an interview that not only are these games not spin-offs but that the Pokemon GO connectivity might see a return for future titles:
“These games aren’t spin-offs. These are core Pokemon titles. As for whether we would make other games that could connect to Pokemon GO, that will depend on how the games are received. If we hear a lot of people saying that they enjoyed being able to bring Pokemon to these games from Pokemon GO, then we’ll think about maybe having future titles also be able to connect to it.”
