Pokémon Quest Announced

Pokémon Quest is the first game announced tonight during the conference from Japan and will be on the Nintendo Switch.

Pokémon Quest will feature free-to-play mechanics and takes place in a new region of the world called Tumblecube Island. You can battle Pokémon, and cook for them and give them items, as well create a camp and find collectibles. This is a departure from the main games and will require you to form bonds with your Pokémon and find and use a new item called Power Stones to beef up your Pokémon’s stats.

The cube-style art is a departure from what we’re used to, but I don’t particuarily hate it at all and can’t wait to see more of this game at E3.
