Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

Summary

Pokemon Let’s Go is currently in a playable state.

In order to have the best possible experience, please follow the instructions below:

  • Dump and use your NAND and keys from your console following our quickstart guide.
  • Choose the Custom Preset option in Emulation > Configure > Controls and Map/Use ONLY the Joycons Docked Controller Do not enable Docked Mode.
  • Enable Use Asynchronous GPU Emulation option.

NOTE: In its current state, Pokemon Lets go is stable with the Use Asynchronous GPU Emulation option enabled, This setting offloads Emulated GPU instructions to an additional CPU core/thread, so please try this option to improve your gameplay experience

Additionally, there are a few instances in which Pokemon Let’s Go will crash or softlock. The known ones are listed below:

Crash = can possibly happen.

Softlock = is guaranteed to happen.

  • Crash while loading disk shader cache (FIX: Disable Use disk shader cache in configure/graphics tab) NOTE:This issue is mostly resolved in the latest canary but shader cache currupts everytime whenever you dump save files in the yuzu. If you are one who generally uses different saves in game it is recommended to use the above fix.
  • Possible crashing may occur when moving from one large area to another (Possibly related to high RAM usage)

As with most emulators, your in-game performance is highly dependent on the power of your system, especially the single core power of your CPU.

HARDWARE ISSUES

  • AMD GPU users who run Windows OSs may experience graphical glitches in the game. They are caused by AMD’s proprietary drivers, and therefore, you either need to wait for AMD to fix drivers, or install a Linux distribution (not recommended if you have no experience with Linux) and use Mesa drivers.
  • Intel GPU users will not get reliable performance. Due to being integrated graphics is generally built on the efficiency and power saving perspective. Use of dedicated GPUs is highly recommended.
