The upcoming Pokémon “strategic team battle game,” Pokémon UNITE, has been confirmed to release in July 2021 for the Nintendo Switch and September 2021 for mobile devices. Cross-platform play will be available as long as players link their Pokémon Trainer Club account or Nintendo Account on both devices.
More information on the upcoming Pokémon Masters game for iOS and Android has been revealed today in a video presentation, including some gameplay footage as well as a special anime short showcasing some of the Trainers that appear in the game.
The animation features Trainers such as Brock, Misty, Rosa from Black 2 & White 2, Erika, Red, Blue, Iris, Barry, and many others. The gameplay footage is brief, but shows off features such as a Move Gauge being used for Pokémon to use their attacks in battle and Trainers having special moves that they can use as well for support or healing.
The final major announcement during the Pokémon 2019 Press Conference was the announcement of a new Pokémon mobile game coming to iOS and Android devices called Pokémon Masters.
Pokémon Masters features many of your favorite Pokémon Trainers from the Pokémon video game series, such as Cynthia, Blue, Red, Brock, Misty, and even several protagonists such as Rosa — the female player character from Black 2 & White 2.
You’ll be able to interact with and battle alongside these Trainers in battles, although from the gameplay footage shown, these battles do not appear to be in the style of traditional Pokémon video games and have a three-vs-three real-time battle style.
Pokémon Masters launches later in 2019, with more information to be unveiled in June.
What would have been a perfect announcement for April Fool’s Day is indeed not a joke and was announced during the Pokémon 2019 Press Conference: Pokémon Sleep. Yes, that’s right, Pokémon Sleep, an upcoming app for smartphones that revolves around sleeping. Yes, that’s right, sleeping, in real-life.
A new cloud-based service was announced during the Pokémon 2019 Press Conference and it’s called Pokémon HOME, coming to iOS and Android devices in early 2020.
Pokémon HOME will serve as a hub for players’ Pokémon across a variety of platforms, giving players the ability to connect with Pokémon Bank, Pokémon 3DS Games, Pokémon GO, Pokémon Let’s Go, and the upcoming Pokémon Sword & Shield.
