Pokemon Masters is a New Smartphone Game That Lets You Team Up With Famous Gym Leaders

A new DeNA Pokemon game that focuses on famous trainers.

The Pokemon Company gave the first look at its new upcoming smartphone game developed in partnership with DeNA. Titled, Pokemon Masters, the new smartphone is coming to iOS and Android later in 2019.

Not much is known about Pokemon Masters other than that it was designed by longtime Pokemon artist Ken Sugimori. The concept seems to revolve around famous Pokemon Gym Leaders from throughout the Pokemon series.

Not only can you battle with leaders like Brock, Misty, Cynthia, and Gary, but there seems to be what looks like some kind of social or partnership element to the game as well. Sugimori designed a new key art used to announce the new mobile game.

Not much else is known about the mobile game currently, but the Pokemon Company says more details will be revealed in June. Presumably we will hear more about Pokemon Masters at E3 this year alongside several other Pokemon announcements.

Pokemon Masters is being developed alongside DeNA, the mobile developers behind Nintendo's mobile games like Fire Emblem: Heroes, Mario Kart Tour, and Super Mario Run.

Other news announced at today's Pokemon Company press conference includes Detective Pikachu coming to the Nintendo Switch, a new sleep mechanic in various Pokemon and Pokemon Go titles, and a new Pokemon Home app that will connect your Pokemon across games and console.
