'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' Gets 'Pokémon Let's Go' Collaboration

If you've played Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu or Let's Go Eevee, you'll be able to obtain special Spirits in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Spirits in Smash Ultimate are equippable accessories that can augment a character's powers and how they fare in certain battles. And according to the official Japanese Pokémon Twitter account, having a save file from Pokémon Let's Go on your Switch will give access to a free Spirit, depending on which version you have.

If you have a save file for Let's Go Pikachu, you'll receive a partner Pikachu Spirit. Use a Let's Go Eevee file and a partner Eevee Spirit will be your gift. Check out the tweet announcing the Pokémon Let's Go collaboration and how the Spirits will look in Smash Ultimate.

The Let's Go Spirits won't be available when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases, but can be obtained by those with the save file starting Dec. 14. If you don't have a copy of Pokémon Let's Go, you'll still have a chance to obtain both Spirits through future events in the Spirits Board.

Spirits can be obtained in Smash Ultimate at the end of battles or by accepting limited-time challenges on the Spirits Board.

One of the new features coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the World of Light adventure mode. Starting with Kirby, players navigate a game board fighting enemies to unlock new Spirits and free other Smash fighters taken out by the game's bad guy.

World of Light mode also acts as a way for players to collect and train their Spirits. Some even have the ability to "evolve" into a more powerful form. (Check out everything we know about Spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, here.) Expect more information on Spirits and how they operate to release once the game comes out.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release on Nintendo Switch Dec. 7. Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee are available now.
