Nintendo Announces Pokemon For The Nintendo Switch; Complete With Pokemon Go Integration

30 May, 2018, 11:25 | Author: Jeannette Greene
  • Pokémon: Let's Go is a new Nintendo Switch game that connects to Pokemon Go

According to the announcement, Pokemon: Let's Go will play on the Nintendo Switch like it does on the 3DS. The trailer had a lot of information and because the event wasn't live-streamed, a wealth of information trickled out without much context. If all that weren't enough, Pokemon GO fans can now catch their first Alolan Pokemon in the game. And while Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! are still some months away, players can download the free-to-start title Pokemon Quest right now.

Pokemon Quest is a fun little game, if not a little lightweight for users who might be expecting the depth offered in other series entries or even the hit mobile title Pokemon Go. Nintendo's partnership with Pokemon is deep.

The game will support drop-in and drop-out co-op for two players, and can connect to Pokemon GO so you can bring your Pokemon Go team into Pokemon Let's Go. 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.


Nintendo also unveiled the 4,980-yen Poke Ball Plus, a controller for the Switch that vibrates and lights up in the same way that Poke Balls behave in the Pokemon world, where the spheres are used to store Pocket Monsters. A leaked list of Alolan Pokemon in Pokemon GO appeared earlier this week, confirming that basically every Alolan Pokemon is already prepped to launch in the game.

Players will also be able to link their Pokemon Go and Pokemon Let's Go games together, allowing players to transfer Pokemon into a special "Pokemon Go Park" in Pokemon Let's Go.

While there aren't any new details on the upcoming game, it does hint that more details on the game may be shared soon.
