Pokemon Masters Has a Tentative Release Date, Pre-Registration is Live

Just be aware that it isn't set in stone.

The newest Pokemon mobile game is set to launch soon, and possibly sooner than you might think. While it was initially set for summer 2019, it sounds like we have a closer idea of when the trainer battling game will on iOS and Android, thanks to the App Store.

The Apple storefront currently lists Pokemon Masters with an "expected" release date of August 29, 2019, rather than the general window of summer 2019. When we reached out for clarification, a spokesperson told us that August 29 is the current tentative scheduled launch date, but it is subject to change without prior notice.

Either way, that's coming up pretty soon. If you're anxious to check out the three-on-three Poke-battling game, you can pre-register on the App Store for iPhone users, or Google Play for Android.

Pokemon Masters is a three-on-three Pokemon battle game with a gacha-style system for gathering new trainers to join your team. You join up and fight alongside series favorite trainers like Brock and Misty, and you can even co-op with friends. It won't have player-versus-player battles though, as the developers want the focus to be on working together and making friends. You won't be seeing any new faces from Sword and Shield just yet either. I mean, there are plenty of old trainers to meet up with, so we can wait a while to recruit newcomers like Nessa and Bea.

We'll see whether Pokemon Masters hits the August date. In the meantime, be sure to read up on our guide to all the news released so far.
