Let's Go Pikachu Eevee Legendary Pokemon

Tips for catching legendaries in Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee

  • It's a good idea to save before going into a battle. If you fail to catch one of the Legendary Birds on your first attempt, you'll need to wait until you've defeated the Elite Four to try again.
  • The catch rate of the Legendary Birds is quite high, so a few Ultra Balls should be plenty. A Master Ball is the easiest way to catch Mewtwo, but is not required. Keep in mind that you can obtain multiple Master Balls.
  • All legendary encounters in this game can be shiny, but you won't be able to tell until the battle has begun. Unlike other Pokemon in these games, there is no overworld indication that a Legendary Pokemon is shiny.
