We discuss the surprising Pokémon Let's Go and Pokémon Go's best year yet

Pikachuing the fat in the latest Eurogamer Podcast.

It's an exciting week if you play Pokémon, with the arrival of the first fully-fledged game on Nintendo Switch, Pokémon Let's Go, and a series of new updates topping off a very strong year for Pokémon Go.

We gathered Eurogamer's most obsessive fans (Matthew Reynolds, Tom Phillips and Emma Kent) to discuss Chris Tapsell's Pokémon Let's Go review - a game he enjoyed far more than originally expected - share some of our Pokémon Go stories and experiences, and ponder where we think Pokémon is, well, going.

We also share our collective horror at the first look at next year's Detective Pikachu movie. It's certainly an interesting time to be a Pokémon fan!
