Pokemon Let's Go: How to Play Co-Op and How It Works

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are out now, and even though the games are technically a remake of Pokemon Yellow, they brings with them some major changes to the franchise. One of the biggest changes in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee is the inclusion of 2-player co-op, though some players may be confused about how to activate it and how it actually works.

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee players can't start a co-op game right off the bat. They have to play long enough to get their Pokedex, and shortly afterwards, they should notice a green icon at the bottom right corner of the screen. Once that icon appears, the second player can shake their controller, whether it be the PokeBall Plus accessory or a Joy-Con, and then their avatar will appear on the screen.

The second player in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee will be the opposite gender of the main player character. They can't get their own party of Pokemon, talk to NPCs, or pick up items. If players want the second player to have a Pokemon following them around, it will be whatever Pokemon is second in the player character's roster.

It's also worth pointing out that playing Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee in co-op will make the game significantly easier than it already is. That's because the second player will participate in battles, meaning most fights against NPCs are 2 on 1 affairs, so the NPCs basically don't stand a chance.

There are other advantages that players can get from playing Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee in co-op as well. For example, when catching wild Pokemon, players will get a catch bonus if they manage to throw their Pokeballs at the same time. Overall, those playing in co-op should be able to get through the game much faster than those playing solo.

On the downside, the co-op partner in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee can't transfer any progress to their own game, and as previously stated, they don't get a Pokemon party of their own. Essentially, the second player is just there in case someone wants to drop in and "play" for a little while, but it doesn't really seem like a true co-op Pokemon experience some were hoping for.

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee is out now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
