A re-imagining of Pokemon Yellow Version with Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pikachu is certainly a good move by Nintendo and The Pokemon Company in the eyes of longtime fans. Returning to the Kanto region makes more than enough sense when considering how popular the original generation of Pocket Monsters still is today, but one of the most important factors of revisiting this particular iteration of the franchise is that all of the original starter Pokemon (Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle) can be captured.
That's right, there's no need to go through the heart-breaking process of picking just one of them. While it's great that the decision was made to keep this element intact for these newer Pokemon titles, it can be a little tricky for newcomers to find them. That's why Screen Rant has put together a guide to help trainers start building their dream team as soon as possible.
All of the ways players can catch each creature varies, but it's reminiscent of the original games. Of course, those who would rather try their luck can actually find Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle roaming the wild, but it is quite a bit more challenging than the below alternatives.
How To Unlock Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle
Bulbasaur – After having captured a total of 30 Pokemon, enter a house in Cerulean City and speak with a woman. Provided you've accomplished this task, she will give you a level 12 Bulbasaur that knows the moves Scratch, Growl, Vine Whip, and Leech Seed. As a side note, this Pocket Monster is also especially helpful when taking on the Cerulean City Gym Leader Misty.
Charmander – After having captured a total of 50 Pokemon, head over and speak with a man on Route 24 just North of Nugget Bridge. Provided you've accomplished the task, he will give you a level 14 Charmander that knows the moves Scratch, Growl, Smokescreen, and Ember.
Squirtle –After having captured a total of 60 Pokemon, go Vermillion City and speak with Officer Jenny. Provided that you've accomplished the task, she will give you a level 16 Squirtle that knows the moves Tackle, Tail Whip, Bubble, and Withdraw.
It all seems simple enough for any trainer to secure a stellar line of Kanto starters to train and bond with. It also can't be overlooked that Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle can all follow behind trainers as they explore the classic region on Nintendo Switch hardware. Plus they look adorable waddling behind the main character, so that's a nice added bonus.
Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pikachu arrived exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018.
