How to Get Pikachu or Eevee from Let’s Go in Pokemon Sword & Shield
Pikachu and Eevee are two of the most popular Pokemon in the entire franchise, and you’ll have an opportunity to get them very early on in the game if you played either of the Pokemon Let’s Go games that released last year.
First, you’ll need to progress through the story until you’ve met the Professor at Route 2 and proceed on to the train station. The train will eventually stop at the Meetup Spot, where you’ll get your first taste of the game’s Wild Areas.
Once you leave the train, to the left of the screen you’ll see a boy and a girl standing to the side. If you played Let’s Go Eevee, talk to the boy and he’ll hand over an Eevee. If you played Let’s Go Pikachu, talk to the girl and she’ll hand over a Pikachu instead.
Both can be added to your party immediately, and they also have Dynamax powers. Do note that you need to have your Let’s Go save files present on your Nintendo Switch, or the NPCs won’t hand over the Pokemon.
To recap, here’s how to get Pikachu or Eevee from Let’s Go in Pokemon Sword & Shield:
- Progress through the story until you take the train to the Meetup Spot.
- Get off the train and talk to the girl and boy to the left side of the screen.
- The girl will give you Pikachu, while the boy gives you Eevee.
