Pokemon Let's Go Will Require Nintendo Online Subscription For Online Features

The news comes from Eurogamer, who claim to have received a statement confirming the actions required to capture Pokémon in the game. Nintendo has announced that Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu! and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee! will both require a premium subscription to the online service for some of their features.

Like many traditional games in the series, Nintendo Switch's upcoming Pokemon RPGs-Let's Go, Pikachu and Let's Go, Eevee-will feature online play.

This isn't the first time that a Nintendo Switch game has required motion controls.

Players of either titles will only be able to trade Pokemon and battle with friends. Further details will be revealed at a later date.

Get ready to shell out for a Nintendo Switch Online subscription if you want to enjoy the platform's two new Pokemon games to their fullest extents.

It has been also made clear that the functionality will be limited as it will not include Battle Spot or Global Trading System which has been a part of older games.

The service is set to launch sometime in September with several pricing plans including one ($3.99), three ($7.99), and 12-month ($19.99) memberships for individual accounts as well as a 12-month family membership ($34.99) for a group of up to seven accounts.
