How to Download Pokemon Quest on Nintendo Switch

Both games are due for release in 2018, but obviously, there will be far more excitement around the main Pokemon game release. The game is advertised as "free to start" so we'd expect some pay options, but it also includes new Power Stones that can upgrade your monsters and help them become any kind of Pokémon you'd like.

"For many people, Pokemon Go was their first experience with the Pokemon brand, so we have crafted these two new titles to be an accessible entry point to our core RPG series while giving our longtime fans a new way to play Pokemon". The new Pokemon RPGs, which are not the "core" Pokemon RPG announced previous year, can connect to Pokemon Go via Bluetooth and utilize Go's capture mechanics.

Let us know in the comments how excited you are about this confirmation. While Pokemon Go and even Super Mario Run can be considered one-hit wonders, this cross-platform strategy and accessories could be just what Nintendo and Pokemon Co. need to secure ongoing revenue.

"As developers of Pokemon games, we had a strong feeling and responsibility of trying to our hand at the new Switch hardware and make it succeed", said Tsunekazu Ishihara, chief executive officer of Pokemon Co. It began with the reveal of Pokemon Quest, which is being released on smartphones as well as the Switch.

According to Serebii, The Pokemon Company made an announcement via TV Tokyo that on Thursday 31st May, they would be revealing some "shocking" news about Pokemon on the program Oha Suta. Pokemon Quest will let trainers explore Tumblecube Island with "a team of up to three Pokemon". From there, Pokemon Quest will be added to the home screen and downloaded automatically, assuming the player has enough available storage space on the device.
