Pokemon Quest Releasing on iOS and Android Next Week

Pokemon Quest will finally be coming to mobile devices, and you won't have to wait long to play it.

Pokemon Quest might have launched for the Nintendo Switch in May, but now it's coming to iOS and Android devices for the first time. The free game will be launching on mobile devices worldwide on Wednesday, June 27.

Pokemon Quest is an entirely free RPG from Gamefreak, announced and released on the same day by Nintendo earlier in May as part of their Pokemon-centric Direct. At the start of Pokemon Quest, you'll have to choose between Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Pikachu and Eevee as your starter Pokemon.

After this, you'll have to complete daily quests and challenges, in order to level up your Pokemon and earn PM Tickets. However you can also earn PM Tickets by the bucket load, or buy them if you're willing to shell out the cash in a variety of microtransaction options.

We played the game on its launch for Nintendo Switch and found an experience quite unlike anything else in the Pokemon franchise. Caty thought Pokemon Quest was a bit of a grind-fest, unless you're happy to spend money.

We've got a ton of guides here at USgamer already covering the game, which start off from our Pokemon Quest beginner's guide. In addition to this, you can hit up our Pokemon Quest recipes guide for how to cook up a storm, or our guide on how to catch a shiny in Pokemon Quest.

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He's so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
