Nintendo and The Pokémon Company keep referring to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as the very first “open-world” Pokémon game, and the region of Paldea looks to give players a huge area to explore as we gather up those adorable ‘mon. But battling can end up taking quite a lot of time, so we now have the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet let’s go feature.
As you explore, you can call out one Pokémon to walk alongside you, and when you activate the let’s go feature they will hunt for local ‘mon and battle them without initiating a full battle, so you can continue to wander, explore, and gather resources. This handy feature means you can spend more time exploring Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, gather sandwich ingredients, and can even speed up level grinding.
