Pokémon Quest was a surprise release for the Nintendo Switch (also coming to mobile phones) which came alongside the announcement of a new Pokémon Game series, Pokémon: Lets Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Lets Go, Eevee! which is to be released on the 16th November 2018.

Pokémon Quest is a free to start app like game which allows you to befriend and create a team of Pokémon to battle your way through Tumblecube Island in search of treasure.

In this game you own a base camp which you can decorate and customize and also cook food to attract different kinds of Pokémon. To obtain the different ingredients used to make this food,  you have to go on expeditions with your Pokémon.

Going on expeditions is what this game truly focuses on. With a team of three Pokémon, you go out and explore an area, while fighting other Pokémon. On these expeditions you can find different ingredients for food recipes and also items to power up your Pokémon to make them stronger.

Personally, I am really enjoying this game. Even though it looks like it was made to be a mobile app, I think it makes itself home very well on the Switch. The fact that it has the first 150 Pokémon in the game, plus their shiny variants really appeals to my collecting loving heart.

Check out the trailer below and see what you think. It is a cute little game that should keep the Pokémon hype going for November.
