There’s no need to pinch yourself, you’re not actually dreaming. Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Eevee are coming out on Friday!

The first Pokémon title on Nintendo Switch is set in the world of Pokémon Yellow, the first Pikachu-centric game from 1998. Go on an adventure across the Kanto region with your new best friend Pikachu. Or Eevee, depending on which version you get. Catch Pokémon, fight trainers, and even ride a Charizard. And for the first time ever, you can adventure alone or with a friend in local co-op.

Because of the success of Pokémon Go, Gamefreak is implementing some of the mobile game’s best features into the new game for Nintendo Switch. Not only can you swing your Joy-Con to toss a ball at wild monsters, but you can also import the ones you caught in Pokémon Go to the Switch. To top it all off, the game is rendered in full HD, offering the most majestic Pokémon experience ever. 

Pokemon Let’s Go! Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go! Eevee come out November 16 and both are available for pre-order on Amazon for $59.
