Pokemon Quest for Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS Announced

Highlights

  • Pokemon Quest is out now on Nintendo Switch
  • It is free-to-start with multiple downloadable packs for purchase
  • Pokemon Quest for Android and iOS is due late June

Aside from lifting the lid on Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, Nintendo also announced Pokemon Quest. It's a free-to-start action game for the Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. It's available on the Nintendo Switch as a download via the eShop right now - May 29. Pokemon Quest download size is 221MB and the Pokemon Quest release date for Android and iOS will be in June. As for the game itself, it takes place on Tumblecube island which Nintendo claims is "filled with hidden treasure and items". Pokemon in Pokemon Quest have a boxy appearance and you can customise and build base camps to attract new Pokemon to add to your team. Trainers can take three Pokemon into battle but with a twist. Instead of the usual turn-based combat, Pokemon Quest limits your control of your Pokemon to tapping attack metres once full. Otherwise, the Pokemon go at it on their own.

"Take on the help of Pokemon originally discovered in the Kanto region in the new Pokemon Quest game! In this free-to-start Pokemon entry you can search for treasure, battle bosses, and more," tweeted the official Nintendo account.
