There’s a whole bunch of new Pokemon games coming to mobile devices and the Nintendo Switch. One of them, Pokemon Quest, is available now for free on Switch and will soon be available for iOS and Android.
In Pokemon Quest, gamers go on expeditions with a team of three Pokemon across Tumblecube Island in search of loot.
Afterwards, you head back to base camp where you can use your new loot to befriend more Pokemon. Attract different Kanto Region Pokemon to your base camp by cooking up dishes made from ingredients you’ve collected, and decorate your camp with fun items that provide helpful bonuses during your expeditions.
This game also introduces a cute cube-shaped art style that’s unlike any previous Pokemon title.
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are due to launch exclusively for Nintendo Switch in November. This new pair of games lets players partner up with either Pikachu or Eevee ,and embark on an adventure where you’ll catch and battle Pokemon, meet other Trainers, and discover the vibrant region of Kanto.
There’s also a new way to play these games on Switch through the Poke Ball Plus. This controller replicates the look and feel of an actual Poke Ball, along with the throwing motion of capturing Pokemon in the games. Players can even send one Pokemon at a time from their game to the Poke Ball Plus and bring it along with them for a stroll in the real world. The games also feature cooperative play on a single system.
Nintendo is also connecting its Switch and mobile Pokemon experiences by allowing players to transfer their collection from mobile game Pokemon GO to the Switch games. Poke Ball Plus will also be compatible with the Pokemon GO app.
Rounding out the landscape is a new untitled Pokemon RPG that’s in development at Game Freak for release in late 2019.
