While Pokemon Quest may be overshadowed by Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu, Let's Go Eevee, the core RPG set to release in June 2019, and Pokemon GO, it may prove to be a great intro for younger Pokemon fans. The new Pokemon RPGs, which are not the "core" Pokemon RPG announced a year ago, can connect to Pokemon Go via Bluetooth and utilize Go's capture mechanics. But that's not all.

Pokémon Go was donloaded 800 million times, Ishihara says.

"Players will be able to personalize their Pokemon and develop a strong bond with their Pokémon friends while battling their way through the adventure".

If you need to get your fix now, today also marks the launch of a free-to-play game, Pokemon Quest, that you can download on the Nintendo eShop. In this case, it is no longer necessary to battle and weaken a Pokemon before capturing it.

World Health Organization said that the natural hosts of the virus are fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family, genus Pteropus. A nurse who treated some of the victims died Monday from the disease, according to the BCC.

Pokémon Let's Go! is expected to be released at some point this fall. You also have the option to transfer Pokemon from Go to Let's Go via a Bluetooth connection; Pokemon you transfer from Pokemon Go will be catchable in a specific area within the Let's Go games. Players can also give presents to their Pokemon Go accounts.

Pokemon Quest is in development for mobile devices and available now for the Nintendo Switch.

This new side-game puts the player in direct control of their preferred Pokemon, and seems to revolve around fighting other types using the attacks we all know and love.

Although we were initially skeptical about the announcement, after consulting a few Pokemon franchise veterans and a few fellow gaming journalists, we are inclined to believe that this announcement will reference Pokemon GO in a number of ways.
