Pokemon Let’s Go: Where to Get Strength and How to Push Boulders

Strong Push replaces Strength, and here's how to get it

by Kyle Hanson


Pokemon Let’s Go is basically a revamped and remade version of Pokemon Yellow, from the Game Boy. This has lead to a lot of people knowing exactly what to do, as they’ve played the game before. But for those of us who haven’t, or those who played it so long ago that the details are fuzzy, there’s lots of tricky spots in the campaign that cause trouble. One of these comes about halfway through your journey, as you encounter large boulders in the cave on the Seafoam Islands. Here’s our guide on where to get Strength and how to push boulders in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.

Strength, which for Let’s Go has become Strong Push, can be found before you ever arrive at the Seafoam Islands. It’s actually found in Fuchsia City, just to the east of the Pokemon Center. Fly here, if you aren’t nearby. Once you arrive at the Pokemon Center just walk to the east, jumping off the nearby ledge. Head inside the first house there and hand the Warden his Gold Teeth, which you will have if you’ve been working on the main story quest. He’ll then teach your companion Pokemon Strong Push, or Strength if you prefer the old school name.

You can now push boulders no matter where you are, but Seafoam Islands is where you really need the technique. Head there and all you need to do now is activate the ability as usual. Open the menu and select Play with Pikachu/Eevee, then choose Secret Technique. Pick Strong Push and your companion will now be able to push boulders at will. Walk up to one and hit A to do so.

And that’s where to get strength and how to push boulders in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. Once you know all of this, you might be wondering how to catch Articuno, who is hiding in the Seafoam Islands.
