It turns out that Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee can be played in handheld mode without motion controls, as pointed out by a Reddit user named LiarInGlass:
Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee can be played in portable mode without motion controls
Not sure if this will get deleted or not because of random rules or not, but if it doesn’t just giving a tip that the game can be played in full portable mode without needing motion controlling for catching Pokémon.
I thought a while ago I read that the motion controls were going to be required but maybe I’m just completely wrong.
Either way, I was somehow under the impression that it was going to be required to throw motion for catching Pokémon but that is not the case. I’m playing fully portable and can use a press or A at the right timing to do better catching than trying to get the motion working correctly as I was having a lot of issues with motion.
Just thought I’d give a tip.
