A Catch Combo (Japanese: れんぞくゲット Consecutive Catch) is a chaining mechanic in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! that awards players for consecutively capturing the same Pokémon species. After capturing two or more Pokémon of the same species in the row, the game will start keeping track of the Catch Combo, which is displayed in the upper-left corner during a wild Pokémon encounter and after a successful capture. A Catch Combo is broken if one of the following occurs:

  • A wild Pokémon flees
  • Pokémon of a different species is caught (including one of the same evolutionary family)
  • Exiting the game

Catch Combo chains are not broken if the player runs away from a wild Pokémon, by going to a new route or city, and the Catch Combo effects can still be seen in a new location. However, if a Pokémon of a different species is captured, the effects are not carried over. Captures made in the GO Park complex contribute to the chain, but do not affect the Pokémon contained within, as their stats are mostly pre-determined upon being transferred from Pokémon GO.


Having a high Catch Combo yields a variety of rewards for the player. These include:

Chain length Exp. Bonus Perfect IVs Rare spawn
Shiny chance
