Pokemon Go news: Let’s Go Pikachu combo warning and December Community Day update

UPDATE ONE: A new warning has been made by Nintendo for those who are planning to switch their prized pocket monsters from Pokemon Go to Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu.

As many fans will already know, it’s possible to transfer Pokemon caught on Android and iOS, to Pokemon on Nintendo Switch.

However, this also comes with a warning from Nintendo on the process and what can happen. This includes the fact that if a transfer is interrupted, the Pokemon can be lost.

“If the Pokémon GO app gets disconnected while transferring Pokémon to Nintendo Switch, there is a chance that the resume transfer function would no longer work.

“It is also possible that the Pokémon GO app in which this issue occurred will no longer connect to any supported games on Nintendo Switch.

“To prevent this issue from occurring, ensure that you have a stable connection between the smart device and the Nintendo Switch game when transferring Pokémon.”

ORIGINAL: Pokemon Go fans on all platforms can now grab new rewards and access new options if they the recently released Nintendo Switch game – Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu.

Fans of the mobile smash hit can now transfer their Pocket Monsters to the Switch title, and they can also enjoy some new in-game bonuses.

It can prove a great combo between the two games, especially if you have been an active Pokemon Go player.

And it looks like the new Pokemon adventure could sell a lot of copies for Nintendo, according to the latest data.

A new report from NPD analyst Mat Piscatella suggests that a lot of Pokemon Go players are interested in buying Let’s Go Pikachu.

The number could be as high as 15% of the Pokemon Go playerbase, a massive amount if proved true.

Here’s what the report reveals on the new Nintendo Switch games release and the Pokemon Go affect:

“Of currently active Pokémon Go players, 24 percent are also active Switch players. Further, 65 percent of this Pokémon Go player/Switch owner group intend to purchase and play Pokémon: Let’s Go. This works out to be roughly 15 percent of total current Pokémon Go players that intend to purchase and play the Switch version of Pokémon: Let’s Go.

“In addition, more than 13 percent of Pokémon Go players who do not currently play games on Switch intend to purchase and play Pokémon: Let’s Go.

“This is a large group of individuals that intend to buy Nintendo Switch primarily due to the presence of Pokémon: Let’s Go…

“The data further suggest that the multi-pronged approach the Pokémon brand has taken to engage with fans across mediums has been successful in growing the total potential market. Mobile and console offerings appear to be working together to make the total pie much larger.

“Because of these efforts, Pokémon as a franchise has far more sales potential than were it to only focus on one specific platform or another.”

This could mean that around 7 million Pokemon Go players are interested in Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu, which could equate to a massive sales boost.

It’s still early days, but more data released by Nintendo in the future should confirm just how big an impact Pokemon Go has had.

In other Pokemon Go news, it looks like fans will soon find out more about the official December Community Day.

Niantic typically announces the Community Day date and featured Pokemon just a few days after the previous event ends.

But nearly a week removed from the November Community Day event starring Cyndaquil, fans are none the wiser about the date or featured Pokemon.

Some fans have even speculated that the December event has been cancelled due to the holiday season.

Fortunately, however, it looks like the announcement has simply been delayed and the event hasn’t been cancelled.

That’s according to Niantic Support, who told one fan that the announcement is coming soon.

Asked for more details about the Community Day event, Niantic Support tweeted: “We’ll be making an announcement with all of this information soon, keep an eye on the @PokemonGOApp channel for details.”

The December Community Day event is expected to take place on the weekend of December 15/16. If it’s anything like past events, it will take place between 10am and 1pm.
