'Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee' Version Exclusives Revealed

Following the release of the new Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee trailer, The Pokémon Company revealed some new information about the Nintendo Switch titles, including each game's version exclusives.

Version exclusives have been a staple of the Pokémon games since Red and Blue released in 1998. Each version will have certain Pokémon that can only be caught in that game to foster trading between players to fill up their Pokedex.

Game Freak and The Pokémon Company continue the trend with Let's Go and those familiar with Red and Blue may recognize the Pokémon separated between the two versions.
