And the mascots have cool new toys to play with

Pokemon Let's Go has announced new hardware and features.

The Switch bundle has been announced for release on November 16, and will retail for US$399.99. The hardware bundle will include a dock adorned with Pikachu and Eevee, tan and yellow Joy-Cons, the Poke Ball Plus controller, and a pre-installed copy of one of the games.

The title Pokemon in Let's Go will be able to replicate the functions of Hidden Machines in the original Pokemon titles, such as cutting trees and Surfing. They will also have a partner meter that allows for exclusive techniques.

This is about $10 fewer than getting each separately.

I’m not feeling the look of it, but I rarely like special edition consoles unless it’s just a straight color change.

Justin Berube has been talking about the high price of the Switch leaving out a large portion of the market (particularly kids) that the quick fading 3DS targets. When I see a $400 price tag, I do wonder how many of these will be bought for children. My understanding is that preorders for the game are pretty low so far in Japan (for a Pokemon game). I'm beginning to think that sales for Let's Go won't be nearly as high as many expect due to the Switch's price rather veteran gamers wanting a more traditional Pokemon game.

Are there any stats about the age demographics for Switch users so far? The only stat I've heard is that 70% of Switch owners as of March 2018 had either a PS4 or XB as well.
