The aesthetics of the game are very similar to Minecraft. It allows you to explore Tumblecube Island, battle and set up camps via touch control. The Pokemon available are mostly from Red and Blue franchise, meaning the action takes place in Kanto.
Pikachu, is that you?
Pokemon Quest allows you to have three beings. You can upgrade them to make the team stronger, or you can swap any member of the trio with other critters youve caught. The free-to-start game will have in-app purchases and will allow you to fight other Trainers.
The new game will be first of three new announcements in 2018, the other two being Pokemon: Lets Go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Lets Go, Eevee!. They will be released worldwide on November 16, with additional info soon to follow.
