Pokemon Quest Announced for Switch and Mobile, Available Now

NINTENDOPokemon Nintendo Switch- Tease could suggest release date announcement imminent

First on the docket is a free-to-play game for both the Nintendo Switch and mobile devices called Pokemon Quest, and it looks nothing like other recent Pokemon titles. This would make sense, and bring the games closer to Pokemon Go, but mean that battling trainers would be the only way to level up your Pokes; it'll be interesting to see if you can actually grind.

The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have announced that two new games in the long-running Pokemon series, titled Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, will be released for Nintendo Switch on November 16. The new games (there's a Pikachu version and an Eevee version) are remakes of Pokemon Yellow geared specifically for casual fans. However, Pokemon now appear wandering around the map; instead of hiding in long grass like they normally do in these sorts of games. We've heard reports that some players can't find the game using the full title, so barring that, players can also simply type in "quest" and search for Pokemon Quest in the returned search results.

A new page has gone up where you can provide your email to specifically get news and info on Pokémon for Switch. Quest can be downloaded now on the eShop and in by the end of June in the app stores, and is a free-to-start title.

The news will apparently be "a moment a new story begins", which could well be a reference to it being the reveal of the new Switch games. "The next introduction to its popular core RPG series, which was teased previous year at E3, will arrive in late 2019 on Nintendo Switch for the first time", it said.
