LGPE Secret Techniques

Secret Techniques (Japanese: ヒジュツ Secret Technique) are special skills in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. They are used for clearing obstacles and transporting the Player, similar to HM moves and Poké Ride. They are only used by both Partner Pikachu and Eevee in those games.


According to the captain of the S.S. Anne, Secret Techniques are typically performed by humans, but the player's partner has an unusual affinity for the abilities, and is able to perform them for the player.

After the player has become Champion, they gain the ability to ride CharizardAerodactyl, or Dragonite in the sky, allowing them to bypass Chop Down and Sea Skim obstacles.
