Nintendo bringing Pokemon franchise to the Switch

  • Nintendo launches first Pokemon game for the Switch

This success is interesting, because the only things Pokemon Quest has in common with mainline Pokemon games are its name and characters.

For anyone of a certain age, everything about the original Pokémon games ooze with a level of nostalgia that is surely unsafe to the human mind. The role-playing game will be followed next year by a more ambitious Pokemon-based title that will debut in the second half of 2019, Nintendo said.

A NEW free-to-start mobile Pokemon game is due to be released in June - but the best news is you won't have to leave the comfort of your home to play it.

Pokemon, which is partly owned by Nintendo, has sold more than 300 million games based on the franchise since 1996. Pikachu or Eevee will also stay by your side the whole game instead of waiting in a Poke Ball. Back when Pokemon Go was first released in 2016, a similar leap in shares was reported. The Pokeball allows players to catch a Pokemon with the press of a button and hand motion of throwing. However, you won't be able to transfer Pokemon from Let's Go to Pokemon Go.

Additionally, you can buy the "Pokeball Plus" accessory to act as an additional "Joy-con" controller for your Switch to capture Pokemon.

Finally, it will be possible to send Pokemon as gifts on the mobile application. In selling the game will be on 16 November 2018.

Additional details are being released slowly as this was the Japanese reveal, and we will update this article if any come as the English version of details are presented. Be sure to experiment to unlock more of them, and no worries - there is a catch-all generic recipe if you don't use a combination of ingredients that corresponds to any of the others. Meanwhile, Epic sets its sights on esports and hopes to dominate E3 Expo with a Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am tournament featuring Ninja, Markiplier, Myth, and more. Because of this, a new core RPG game is expected.

However, one downside to the game was the fact users needed to leave the house to complete their Pokemon collection.
