Something that will impress you with this first title is that the characters and the world in which you will play literally seems to usher in a new era of Minecraft. Pikachu is square, and so is everyone around him. The company says that this is an easy and free version, because it does not have a starting price, although you can make payments to make expeditions, get more food for your pokémon or more modern balls to catch them all much faster.

There are at least nine packages that are already available:

  • Expedition Pack (US $ 4.99)
  • Great Expedition Pack (US $ 9.99)
  • Ultra Expedition Pack (US $ 17.99)
  • Broadburst Stone (US $ 2.99) Scattershot Stone (US $ 2.99)
  • Sharing Stone (US $ 2.99)
  • Stay Strong Stone (US $ 2.99)
  • Wait Less Stone (US $ 2.99)
  • Whack-Whack Stone (US $ 2.99)

The ideas behind this video game of square characters is that with simple touches on the screen you can start your battles. According to a press release, “players will have to search for treasures, fight wild pokémon, discover unexplored territories and even cook tasty treats to tempt new pokémon to join the party.”

“This new Pokémon title, developed by GAME FREAK, allows players to explore the island of Tumblecube with its team of cute cube characters known as Pokéxel,” said Shigeru Ohmori, director of GAME FREAK. “Players will be able to customize their Pokémon and develop a strong bond with them as they struggle on their way to adventure … With simple touchscreen controls, Pokémon Quest is a game that Pokémon fans of all ages can pick up and play.”

Pokémon Let’s Go : connect Pokémon Go with the Nintendo Switch

This second title is called Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee! And it is able to connect Pokémon Go with the Nintendo Switch, in addition it releases a new device called PokeBallPlus.

Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee ! they are based on Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition , which was first released in Japan in 1998. Pokemon collected in Pokemon Go for mobile devices can be incorporated and used in the Nintendo Switch version.

The games allow players to use the Joy-Con controller to launch pokébolas physically in the same way they do in the original Pokémon Go . They can also use PokeballPlus to cause the same effect.

Pokémon Let’s Go is not the basic role-playing game (known as RPG) that Nintendo has promised for Nintendo Switch. That title has been relegated to 2019, although this concept is interesting. Simultaneously resumes the game for Pokemon Go mobile devices, while taking advantage of the value of its name for a new console title.
“With the launch of Pokémon GO in 2016 and the global sensation it achieved, millions of new players were introduced to the world of Pokémon,” said Junichi Masuda, director of GAME FREAK. “For many people, Pokémon GO was their first experience with the Pokémon brand, so we created these two new titles to be an accessible access point for our main RPG series, while providing our enthusiastic fans with a new way to play Pokemon”.
Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and P okémon Let’s Go, Eevee! they have a global release date scheduled for November 16, 2018.
