The first maneuver is the best known, and that is the exchange with friends through Pokémon GO on your android smartphone mobile device or iOS device, and the Nintendo Switch.
GOTTA CATCH'EM ALL
Unlike the previous chapters of the series, in these versions it is really necessary to capture as many wild Pokémon as you will find, as, by doing so, you will receive Experience Points which will come in handy when you challenge the Gym Leaders and Trainers with a higher level Party than yours. Try to take as much as possible, even doubles and triplets do not interest, the important thing is that from the beginning you stock up on every creature you cross on your way. Each time you send Pokémon to Professor Oak, you will get candy. Giving the latter to Pokémon will increase their stats, such as Attack, Defense and of course also HP. More catches equals more benefits, like when you have caught 30 species, even the same, if you go to Celestopoli a lady will give you a Bulbasaur. As you increase your prey, move to Route 24 and you'll receive a Charmander after 50 captures, Agent Jenny in Orange City will give you a 60-capture Squirtle, and so on. Always talk to whoever you meet, many of them will just have a chat, but many others will reserve you pleasant surprises, such as Potions, new Pokémon and valuable tips. Anyone who has played Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun, or Pokémon Ultra Moon has experienced variations of the original forms of Pokémon in Kanto in the tropical region of Alola. In the Pokémon Centers you will meet Trainers who will offer you an exchange between a Kanto specimen against an Alola variant with dissimilar characteristics, as well as physical also instrumental. Since this will be an excellent opportunity to enrich the Pokédex, try to catch as many monsters as possible of different types. During the story, in the gaps between one path and another, you will cross paths with Professor Oak's assistants who will want to see how many different species of Pokémon you have captured. If you show them that you have registered a certain number of Pokémon in the Pokédex, you will be rewarded with items and new game features.
By catching the same Pokémon several times in a row, the new feature called Combo catch will be activated. This means that following the consecutive capture of the same pet you will have a greater chance of encountering a rare one or even the evolved forms of wild Pokemon. Catching a lot of Pokemon becomes even more beneficial when doing catch combos. To start one, just catch the same Pokemon species several times in a row. As your combo increases, you will have a greater chance of encountering rare Pokemon, even those not normally found in the wild, such as evolved forms, or with higher stats. And not only, the longer the catch combos are, the more likely you are to spot Shiny Pokémon. In order not to break the chain of combos, as soon as you meet a different Pokemon, just flee until you see the same one again. Keep in mind that if he is the one to escape, unfortunately for you, but you will have to start all over again, so it is advisable to save the game after each consecutive capture.
NATURE AND STATISTICS
After you have entered 30 different Pokemon species in your Pokédex, go to the building located between Route 11 and Route 12, where you will meet an assistant to Professor Oak, who will grant you the Judge function. From now on you can examine the basic stats of your Pokemon directly from the game menu and keep an eye on the natures of your Pokemon. Looking at each Pokémon's stats graph you will notice that the pink one is favored by nature, while the blue one is penalized. Most of these natures can raise a stat, like Attack, Defense, or Speed, but at the same time they decrease another. Fortunately, there is a way to make wild Pokémon have the desired nature. Go to the Pokémon Center in Celadon City and talk to the Seer, give her some money and she will ask you two questions: one will decide the favored stat while the other the penalized one. Once you give your answers, the wild Pokémon that you will encounter for the rest of the day, corresponding to that of the real world, will have a characteristic nature. Have fun giving the Seer different answers to get a complete picture of which natures they correspond to and which statistics are affected by them.
NOT FOR MONEY BUT FOR MONEY
Since, as we already know, it will be essential to capture prey to level up, it will also be essential to buy the very expensive Poké Balls, or the Invitation Perfumes, essential to favor certain complicated captures. Unfortunately, the few pennies earned at the end of each fight will not be enough to cover the costs, so the best solution is to sell everything that is salable and even better if of value. Search everywhere, do not miss even a small space and always keep a watchful eye on your travel companion, Pikachu or Eevee, because when it starts to wag its tail it means that there is something interesting nearby to collect. Also remember to always talk to everyone, you will receive items, money or tasks for which you will be rewarded with something to resell.
Owners of Pokémon GO certainly know the Aroma tool whose property is to attract wild Pokémon for a limited time, especially the rarest. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! this item has another name and that is called Invitation Perfume, which you can buy in the Pokémon-Market or at the Celadon Shopping Center, after you have won two Medals. The scents make more wild Pokémon appear nearby for a while, especially the rarer ones. After obtaining four Medals you can buy the Super Perfume, and after six Medals you will have access to the Max Perfume. Using this tool will make the path impractical due to the high number of Pokémon that will appear, but do not forget that it is important to catch them. as much as possible, both for Experience Points and for rewards.
WHO FINDS A FRIEND FINDS A TREASURE
In addition to your starter Pokemon, in Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! E Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee! You can also get another companion out of the Poké Ball. Walking through the Kanto Region next to you will strengthen your friendship, help you find hidden objects, will also improve its performance in battle and will be able to self-heal during the fight. Do this in rotation with your entire Party, and the whole team will benefit from it.
If you are in a hurry to finish a mission and the best way would be to move faster, open the Poké Ball and let out a Pokémon, such as Arcanine or Onix, jump on it and run away. Keep in mind that the Pokemon you are riding will find no hidden items. In addition to moving faster, you will find that this is also the best way to get noticed by wild Pokémon, so if you do not want interruptions in the race, you will have to use a Repellent, exactly the opposite of the perfume invitation. Also in this case there are the increased versions, namely the Super Repellents and the Max Repellents.
In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! The Kanto Region will be very recognizable to those who have played the original adventure, but in reality there are different environments that affect the way to find specific Pokémon, which in the primary game was only possible to find in certain areas. The most noticeable examples are in the Rocket Arcade of Celadon City and the Safari Zone of Fuchsia City, where Kangaskhan, Tauros, Porygon, and Dratini could be obtained. In the new guise, some of these species can be found in other ways, even in the wild. In addition, some of these rare Pokémon, such as Scyther or Pinsir, show up only in one of the two versions of the game, so to complete the Pokédex you will have to resort to the exchange.
