With the new Support Play feature in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee, two players can game together simultaneously. It’s old school couch co-op or multiplayer reborn! Simply shake the second joy-con on the Nintendo Switch to bring a second player on screen.
This co-op function allows two Trainers to explore the same area, but the “camera” will stay on the first player. If the second player goes too far away, they will transport back to the first player.
Two Trainers can also team up in battle, essentially making it a handicap match. The six party Pokemon will be shared between the two Trainers.
Finally the two Trainers can team up to capture wild Pokemon. Using the same Poke Balls from the main character’s bag, throw a Poke Ball at the exact same time to boost its capture powers!
