In Pokémon Let's Go, you can change your Pikachu or Eevee's hairstyle

The latest trailer for Pokémon Let's Go: Pikachu and Eevee has shown off more of the game's opening sections - including our first look at trading, more footage of battling, and the debut of water gym leader Misty.

Pikachu?

What caught my eye was the ability to give your partner Pokémon - either Pikachu or Eevee, depending on the variant of the game you get - a hairdo. Eevee has a curly haircut or odd fringe design, while Pikachu has a hipster curl.

The Pokémon Company has now confirmed the critters exclusive to each version. In Pikachu, you'll be able to catch Oddish, Sandshrew and Growlithe. Eevee owners will be able to nab Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth.

I played Pokémon Let's Go's Pikachu version back at E3 and found it a pretty but rather basic reboot of the long-running series.

Recently, Nintendo confirmed you will need a Nintendo Switch online subscription to use Pokémon Let's Go's internet trading and battling features.
