'Pokémon' GOes To Nintendo Switch (Updated)

We Kanto believe it!

Since E3 2017, we've known that Pokémon was coming to the Nintendo's current flagship system, the Switch. Today in Japan, The Pokémon Company held a press conference announcing not one, but three (and a half?) Pokémon games heading to Switch. And they're coming sooner than you might have expected (well, maybe not the last one).

The first game is Pokémon Quest, a title that is going to both the Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms. The free-to-start game displays Pokémon and other objects as cubes. You can battle wild Pokémon, find treasure, and befriend Pokémon on Tumblecube Island.



Pokémon Quest is available to download now on Nintendo Switch, and in late June for mobile platforms.

The next game is one that leaked on April first of this year, but being that day, didn't pick up steam until mid-May. This game brings you back to the original Pokémon game's region of Kanto and has some ties to the mobile game Pokémon GO. The Switch game comes in two flavors: Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's go, Eevee! and is based on the game Pokémon Yellow. You can play with one controller (Joy-Con), or use the new accessory the Pokéball Plus to play. You can also take your favorite Pokémon along with you "in" the Pokéball Plus. Not only that, but use the other Joy-Con on your Switch and have a friend join you in the game. Kanto Pokémon caught in Pokémon Go can be brought into Pokémon Let's Go.





Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! will be catchable on store shelves November 16, 2018.

When the rumors about the Let's Go games surfaced, fans were a bit worried that the "core RPG" title that was announced at E3 2017 would be a watered-down Pokémon GO clone. That brings us to the third game that was (not fully) revealed. There was no final title or any screenshots, but The Pokémon Company confirmed that the all-new core game that was teased in 2017, will be released in the second half of 2019.


Get ready to catch them all trainers!


UPDATED: The full press conference is now online.
