Pokemon Quest Announced For Switch, Smartphones: Available Now On Switch

Pokemon Nintendo Switch

Although we were initially skeptical about the announcement, after consulting a few Pokemon franchise veterans and a few fellow gaming journalists, we are inclined to believe that this announcement will reference Pokemon GO in a number of ways. The first two are Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! One game that's been getting a lot of attention in the lead up to E3 is the upcoming mainline Pokemon title for Nintendo Switch. They will be available from November 16, 2018 - so not too long to wait. If you don't see the listing under the "Recent Releases" section of the store, you can head to store page on Nintendo.com, log in, and download from there instead.

One of the main differences from previous Pokemon games seems to be the battle system. Players can also give presents to their Pokemon Go accounts.

"With the launch of Pokemon Go in 2016 and the global sensation that ensued, millions of new players were introduced to the world of Pokemon", said Junichi Masuda, director at developer Game Freak. This player can help you catch Pokemon and can battle alongside you (though it doesn't appear to initiate a double battle). It's a little Pokeball that functions a bit like the Pokemon Go Plus wristband.




In-keeping with recent rumours, the games will take place in the Kanto region (the setting of the original 1996 games) and represent a full 3D reimagining of 1998's Pokemon Yellow, which allowed players to buddy up with the iconic electric rat Pikachu.

Rather than choosing between a set of three, your starter Pokemon in Let's Go will be determined by the version of the game you're playing.
