Nintendo brings together Pokémon, Switch, and smartphones

Posted May 30, 2018

The Pokemon press conference has been filled with new game announcements, but that wasn't the only news that was revealed.

Pokemon Let's Go will come out on November 16th.

The games seem to be spiritual remakes of the classic Pokemon Yellow - where the protagonist is given Pikachu as their starter Pokemon and their rival an Eevee - and also incorporate aspects of the wildly popular mobile game, Pokemon Go.

The Let's Go games also allow for two-player co-op, a new feature for the Pokemon RPGs.

Pokemon Quest is available now for the Nintendo Switch and set to launch on mobile devices in June.

Along with a new Switch controller in the shape of a Poke Ball, the variety of gaming scenarios involving the various gadgets and games might risk befuddling many adults, but will make ideal sense to kids and Pokemon-generation gamers. You'll also be able to trade Pokemon with other players, though Masuda did not comment on whether the Let's Go games would be compatible with other Pokemon games (past or future) or Pokemon Bank.
