Mega Evolutions confirmed for Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee

Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise confirmed

Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee & Pikachu sound better with each passing week. Although I was initially down on the idea of injecting Pokemon Go elements in like simplistic catching methods and pulled back multiplayer, the more charming elements like riding various creatures and having them follow you around in different ways is enticing. Mega Evolutions are another bonus.

According to CoroCoro magazine, Blastoise, Charizard, and Venusaur will all sport Mega Evolutions, which are spurred by “Key Stones” as well as the traditional Mega Stone item. The return of Lt. Surge at the Vermillion City Gym is also confirmed. Brock, Misty, and Team Rocket’s involvement are also re-confirmed in the magazine.

I’m still not sure if I want to drop $100 on the “game plus accessory” bundle yet, but picking up one version is making more sense.
