Pikachu and Eevee Special Moves in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee mix things up a little bit with their introduction of special moves for both Pikachu and Eevee which eschew any type of logic in the Pokemon universe. Want Pikachu to be able to fly because he loves you so much? You can! These special moves are incredibly devastating and simply own in most fights. Below you will find a list of the Pikachu and Eevee special moves.
Pikachu Special Moves (3 Total)
Pikachu has a total of 3 special moves he can learn from the move tutors (tamer) in Pokemon Centers in Cerulean City, Celadon City, and Fuchsia City. These moves forgo reality, making Pikachu a killing machine with moves having secondary effects that can be pretty bonkers. The special moves you can teach Pikachu are:
- Zippy Zap (Cerulean City Move Tutor): This electric-type/physical damage attack always goes first and always results in a critical hit (think quick attack on steroids). Stats for Zippy Zap are 50 power, 100 accuracy, and 15 PP.
- Floaty Fall (Celadon City Move Tutor): Ever wanted Pikachu to be able to fly, but then realized he’s basically just a yellow rat so he’s physiologically unable to? Well I have good news for you. Instead of succumbing to its evolutionary lot in life, in Floaty Fall Pikachu rigs up an insane balloon contraption which causes it to fly high into the sky like some type of bird of prey. This flying-type/physical damage attack has the potential to make the target flinch. Stats for Floaty Falls are 50 power, 100 accuracy, and 15 PP.
- Splishy Splash (Fuchsia City Move Tutor): If you found the two moves I mentioned above to be a bit on the boring side, fear not, Splishy Splash may be just what you’re looking for. Historically water and electricity have never mixed well in the Pokemon universe, but the folks over at Game Freak decide nah, this time they are gonna mix… hard. In Splishy Splash Pikachu jumps on a surfboard and rides the waves like he’s Kelly Slater. This water-type/special damage attack can paralyze the target. The stats of Splishy Splash are as follows 90 power, 100 accuracy, 15 pp.
- Pika Papow: This is a partner exclusive move to Pikachu which never misses and grows stronger the more love Pikachu has for you. Unlike the moves listed above, this move is not learned, but rather appears at random during fights and simply requires wiggling the joy con to trigger.
With these 3 special moves above, you basically have the perfect Pokemon specimen in Pikachu. Oh and it can wear hats and glasses which is pretty cool as well.
Eevee Special Moves (8 Total)
Looks at number of special moves, spits out drink. 8 special moves? Am I seeing this right? Guess I bought the wrong version… Anyways. Eevee has a total of 8 special moves it can learn from move tutors in Pokemon Centers in Cerulean City, Celadon City, and Fuchsia City. These moves (much like Pikachu’s) are basically Game Freaks way of making the game easily beatable. The special moves for Eevee are:
- Bouncy Bubble (Cerulean City): Eevee sucks the healing waters out of enemy pokemon, leaving them with lower health in the process. Half the damage deal by the move is recovered as HP. This water-type/special damage move features these stats, 90 power, 100 accuracy, 15 PP.
- Buzzy Buzz (Cerulean City): Essentially Thunder Wave but with a side of damage. Eevee electrocutes the enemy pokemon dealing damage and paralyzing it. This electric-type/special damage move has these stats, 90 power, 100 accuracy, 15 PP.
- Sizzly Slide (Cerulean City): Like a flaming kamikaze, Eevee launches itself at the opposing enemy pokemon in a shroud of flames which leaves them with a burn (along with dealing damage). This fire-type/physical damage move has the following stats, 90 power, 100 accuracy, 15 PP.
- Glitzy Glow (Celadon City): Eevee sends out a psychic blast at the enemy pokemon. Pretty vanilla if you ask me. Besides doing damage, this move also lowers the opposing team’s special attacks. Stats for Glitzy Glow are, 90 power, 100 accuracy, 15 PP.
- Baddy Bad (Celadon City): A ray of light shoots up out of the ground in gulfing the enemy pokemon in pure dark energy. Using this move deals damage and weakens the opposing team’s physical attacks. Stats for this move are, 90 power, 100 accuracy, 15 PP.
- Freezy Frost (Fuchsia City): Think of leech seed on steroids, but with the initial attack also dealing damage. Seems good right? This grass/physical damage move has the following stats, 90 power, 100 accuracy, and 15 PP.
- Sappy Seed (Fuchsia City): Attacks the enemy pokemon with a crystal made of cold frozen haze. Alongside dealing damage, this move also eliminates any stat changes among the Pokemon engaged in battle. This ice/special damage move has the following stats, 90 power, 100 accuracy, and 15 PP.
- Sparkly Swirl (Fuchsia City): Wraps the enemy Pokemon in a fairy twister that deals damage to the enemy pokemon and heals the status conditions of the user’s party. Very nice. Stats for this fairy/special damage move are, 90 power, 100 accuracy, and 15PP.
- Veevee Volley: This is a partner exclusive move to Eevee which never misses and grows stronger the more love Pikachu has for you. Unlike the moves listed above, this move is not learned, but rather appears at random during fights and simply requires wiggling the joy con to trigger.
Each Eevee special move reflects a possible evolution form of Eevee. Since there are a literally a ton of Eevee evolutions, there are ton of special moves for those trainers that picked up Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee to teach them.
All Special Moves in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee Video (via Nintendo Unity)
If you are curious about seeing the all moves described above in action, this video from YouTuber Nintendo Unity shows each and every one of them. Revel at the beauty of Pikachu and Eevee crushing foes with their unlimited power.
Ok, this is late, but the move strength of Eevee’s exclusives needs to be put in better context. 90 power, 100 accuracy, and 15 PP are the equivalents of Surf, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, Ice Beam (most were reduced from 95 power a few gens ago) and their ilk with -guaranteed- special effects.
Buzzy Buzz, for example, is not just Thunder Wave with a little damage: it is Thunderbolt with guaranteed paralysis (so Thunderbolt plus Thunder Wave). Sizzly Slide is a physical Flamethrower plus a guaranteed Burn (that’s better than Sacred Fire). Bouncy Bubble is Surf plus Giga Drain-level leeching.
Both partner-mons get ridiculous Tech. Your description of Pikachu’s exclusive being a near perfect in-game Pikachu are spot-on, though. Electric for STAB, Flying for Grass types, and Water fot Grounds.
Also you said eevees partner move grows stronger the more love pikachu has for u
