This is a sub-page of Proto:Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.
This page details one or more prototype versions of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.
|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Need to update with all areas.
Although the build is still fairly close to release date, various areas lack NPCs, have different items and some were cut from the game entirely. If a location isn't here, that means it's the same in the final. For Wild Encounters, see our page on the differences for all areas in the game. For Trainer Battle differences in each location, see here.
Many differences will have images associated with them, which can be found through clicking their text.
- 1 Pallet Town
- 2 Viridian City
- 3 Route 22
- 4 Viridian Forest
- 5 Pewter City
- 6 Route 3
- 7 Mt. Moon
- 8 Route 4
- 9 Cerulean City
- 10 Route 24
- 11 Route 25
- 12 Celadon City
- 13 Pokemon Centers
- Many areas (particularly in the early game starting in Pallet Town) feature water that doesn't animate.
- Wild Pokemon from Route 21 can be seen from Pallet Town, which does not happen in the final game.
- The Viridian Trainer's School is missing an NPC in the bottom left.
- Plenty of NPCs dotted around Viridian City are completely absent in this build.
- The camera in Viridian Forest is noticeably closer to the player for the most part when compared to the final.
- The exit Gate lacks NPCs and have the camera at a different angle.
- Many signs don't begin with the "Trainer Tips" text that they should in this build.
- This Bug Catcher has a different placement in the final build.
- Includes Coach Trainer Kareem, who was moved to Route 3 in the final.
- The Bug Catcher at the first split in Viridian Forest is completely absent.
- A girl and her Butterfree are missing in this build.
- Some NPCs that are intended to be playing on Nintendo Switches simply are missing them in this build, despite the text still being similar to the final.
- Many other NPCs are missing around Pewter City, such as the Hiker & Poke-Mart employee.
- Oddly, the Super Nerd at the counter is replaced with a Scientist in the final.
- In the Pewter Pokemon Centre, a girl mentions that Brock is a "ground-type Pokemon user!" - Whilst this is the case, it has been corrected to Rock type in the final. Strangely, this NPC doesn't appear to be a leftover from a previous game, like many other mistakes of a similar nature.
- The lady with a Slowpoke that can give you one Nugget per-day is missing, though her text seems to be present in the game's script.
- Instead of giving you 5 Great Balls like in the final, Blue instead gives the player 5 Rare Candies.
- A completely new Bug Catcher named Colton is found here that is missing in the final.
- Coach Trainer Kareem was originally in Viridian Forest in this build, but was moved to Route 3 in the final.
- Mt. Moon has many overhangs that obscure the player's view. They're significantly pulled back in the final to the point where they're barely noticable.
- Lass Evelyn (known as Lass Hana in this build) has a different placement to the final. Interestingly, her placement is near-identical to a Lass in Pokemon FireRed & LeafGreen.
- TM30 (Bulk Up) is on BF2 instead of the Celadon Department Store.
- Coach Trainer Oberon has been moved down in the prototype build.
- A Hiker is missing next to the Pokemon Center in this build.
- In the center of this plateau, one Poke Ball item is present as opposed to the x5 in the final.
- The player cannot interact with various signs around Cerulean City.
- During your Rival battle in Cerulean City, the Battle Background is largely a work in progress.
- Obtaining Bulbasaur requires the player to have caught at least 50 Pokemon, as opposed to a lesser 30+ in the final. This house is also missing a Sandshrew and Oddish.
- The girl that will trade you an Alolan Rattata for your Kantonian Rattata is not present in this build, and instead can be located in Vermillion City's Pokemon Center.
- A house containing the Hiker and his Clefairy that teach you about how to style your Partner Pokemon's hair are both completely missing.
- NPC Placement within the Pokemon Center is vastly different.
- The lady with an Onix has an empty house in this build.
- There is no Rare Candy in the backyard of the Gym Badge man's house - but a hidden Potion can be found instead that wasn't there in the final.
- Obtaining Charmander requires the player to have caught at least 90 Pokemon, as opposed to a lesser 50+ in the final.
- TM16 (Thunder Wave) can be found here, whereas in the final it's located behind a Cut Down bush on Route 25. In the final, it is instead a bundle of 3 Razz Berries.
- An X Sp. Def can be found here, which was instead made TM16 (Thunder Wave) in the final.
- Behind this bush there is a Super Potion that was not present in the final.
- TM30 (Bulk Up) is in Mt. Moon instead of the Celadon Department Store.
- All Pokemon Centers heal for the same length of time as if the player had a full team of six Pokemon, whereas in the final, the animation scales appropriately with the amount of Pokemon on your team.
- The back wall of every Pokemon Center does not feature a poster depicting the GO Park, suggesting that it was implemented later on than the visuals for the Center were.
