Summoning a partner to walk alongside in Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pikachu is a major highlight for anyone setting off on their adventure. While Eevee and Pikachu, respectively, will ride trainers as they walk around, there are actually a few Pokemon that players can be summoned and then rode in order to get around the Kanto region much more quickly. There are quite a few of these monsters-turned-friends available for this, so we here at Screen Rant decided to summarize them.
The beauty of mounting up on these creatures is that players need only summon them to their side. As a result, they'll find themselves atop the Pokemon they've chosen to accompany them. Interestingly enough, there are mounts exclusive to either Pokemon Let's Go Eevee or Pikachu, with Arcanine being a clear favorite for gamers hoping to ride around on what equates to a giant fire dog. That beast (and the creature it evolved from, Growlithe) is exclusive to the Pikachu version in particular, while Persian and Meowth are only found in Let's Go Eevee.
There are a number of wacky Pokemon players can ride in Let's Go, but a complete list can be found below:
Something interesting to note for those that want to take their rides to social media to brag, is that shiny versions of each Pokemon will actually appear in the overworld map. This means that it's possible to saddle up on a black Charizard or a red Gyarados, much to the envy of any onlookers you opt to share the moment with.
Another important take away is just how funny it is to actually see aspiring Pokemon Masters riding on the shoulders of a Machamp or clinging to the massive belly of a Snorlax as they walk around to the intended direction of the player. The ingenuity of the developers at Game Freak in implementing these rideable Pokemon is applaudable. Additionally, since Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pikachu are shattering sales records, this means a lot of consumers will get the opportunity to appreciate these mounts for themselves.
While some Pokemon are funny to see in action, it's very weird to see how large Haunter is as it carries players around on its back. Also, isn't it a ghost? How do players ride it if it can phase through walls? Perhaps these questions are better left unanswered in the face of novelty. Furthermore, it would be great to ride on a Legendary Pokemon in Let's Go, but maybe that's best saved for another game.
