The blocky Pokemon Quest, which was previously only for the Nintendo Switch, recently made its way to iOS and Android devices, joining the growing plethora of mobile Pokemon games. The Official Pokemon YouTube Channel released a trailer with the game’s launch.
Announced the same day as Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee in Nintendo’s Direct, Pokemon Quest is a free-to-start game that takes place on a cube-shaped island where everything, even the Pokemon, are adorable cubes. Much like the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games, players take control of various Pokemon to explore Tumblecube Island and take on more powerful Pokemon. Though, unlike the Mystery Dungeon games, Quest allows Pokemon to freely roam while the player simply controls their attacks, creating a new strategic dynamic in this Pokemon spin-off.
As opposed to defeating Pokemon in hopes of befriending them, players must cook dishes in order to draw Pokemon to their camps while some Pokemon may appear randomly. The power levels of Pokemon in the player’s team are added and accessed before being able to enter a new section of the island, and these levels can fluctuate depending on the different items the Pokemon are holding.
In an article, we complemented the game on its many unique properties and depth of its seemingly simple gameplay. For those that may be unfamiliar with the game, Twinfinite already has many guides detailing how to acquire certain Pokemon and how to evolve the Pokemon players may be particularly fond of.
