Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee! has just arrived for the Nintendo Switch platform. Some of you were worried about having to use motion controls to catch Pokemon while playing the game in handheld mode.
Follow the motion
However, that fear has been alleviated, as a Redditor had the game early and says you are not forced to use them.
We where somehow under the impression that it was going to be required to throw motion for catching Pokémon but that is not the case. For people playing fully portable; a press of A at the right time can help you in catching, instead of trying to get the motion working correctly.
It must have been a somewhat later correction as people where mentioning having a lot of issues with getting the motion right. We still have to give the game more of a run using both, we also ordered the Poke Ball Plus … because of the desire to throw a ball … yep … kids at heart still you know.
