But then Pokémon Go happened, and millions of new players discovered the joy of Pikachu through a completely different lens. Let's Go, then, bridges that gap between the core series and the wildly popular mobile game, by turning the experience of catching Pokémon into a Go-style minigame.If you somehow haven't played Pokémon Go, the whole experience will be alien to you.
