Pokemon Let Go Go Pikachu and Let's go Eevee have been out for a few weeks now, giving Pokemon coaches around the world plenty of time to explore the Kanto area, face the Elite Quarters and potentially even catch them all. We now have a pretty good idea of the time it takes to beat the last Pokémon adventures, thanks to the data collected by the aggregated recreation site How Long to Beat.
According to the data of How Long to Beat, Pokemon Let Go Go Pikachu and Let's go Eevee It will take a little over 20 hours to beat the main story. Completists looking to catch all Pokémon (it is unclear if catching all bright Pokémon are considered "completist" data) can expect to add 15 hours over, about 35 hours. The average playing time of all styles is about 25 hours.
While this may seem like a decent amount of content, it should be noted that Pokemon Let Go Go Pikachu and Let's go Eevee seem to take less time to beat than other games in the franchise. According to the same site, Pokemon Sun and Moon take almost 120 hours to complete, and Pokemon X & Y Apparently, it takes about 200 hours on average for the finishers to conquer.
Compared to these figures, the time to finish beating Pokemon Let Go Go Pikachu and Let's go Eevee seems very short. However, it should be emphasized that Pokemon Let Go Go Pikachu and Let's go Eevee are intended for a more casual audience than the other games in the series, so it makes sense that beating them requires a much smaller investment in time.

This more relaxed approach to Pokémon Game Freak and Nintendo seem to be a wise decision, as the games are already breaking sales records at Switch.
