In Pokemon: Let’s Go, you can change your partner Pokemon Pikachu and Eevee‘s hair while playing with them. To change Pikachu or Eevee‘s hairstyle you must be playing in handheld mode. Use two fingers to pet the Pokemon‘s head. The way you pet them changes the hairstyle you’ll get, as does the number of fingers you use.
Petting the head with an up and down motion often results in this spiky hairdo:
Then, petting in a swirling motion clockwise often yields the tuft of fur:
The final two sideswept looks are most easily obtained by making counter-clockwise motions. The first is a subtle cowlick:
And the other is a far more dramatic flipped out bang or styled look that can sometimes also be achieved by petting the head from left to right
To get the next hairstyles, you’ll need to pet your Pikachu or Eevee with five fingers. This comes via GamesRadar. These hairstyles can be a little tricky to get depending on whether or not your switch registers how you’re petting the Pokemon.
We’ve found it’s best to make sure your fingers are spread out a bit with at least two fingers on your partner’s head. You must start by touching your partner’s head or the Switch will register you as just petting your partner normally.

Swipe up and down with your hand to get these straight bangs:
Swiping diagonally toward the right or swirling yields this nearly fierce mohawk or spiky hairdo:
This last know hairstyle for Pikachu and Eevee requires 8+ fingers to achieve. Start with at least two fingers on your partner’s head and swirl your left hand clockwise and your right hand counterclockwise to imitate a tousling motion to get this afro hairstyle:
If you find you’re not getting this style, just keep trying!
