The new Pokemon game for the Switch hasn’t come out yet, but something tells me that these cute little monsters will be around. Niantic, the company that helped develop Pokemon Go, is reported to have earned at least $1 billion last year. It’s safe to say that The Pokemon Company and its many game developer partners, will not grow too tired of making games anytime soon.
On this article, we list down all of the games that are currently available to play on your smartphone. Every game on this list is available on both Android and iOS.
Something of a board game echoing Go and Chess, Pokemon Duel is the company’s reply (for now) to their users’ cry for a mobile game in which Pokemon fight. In the game, you control Pokemon as pieces which have corresponding range and power. The goal is to get to your opponent’s side of the field.
Pokemon Go is an event. The Pokemon Company must have known there would be peaks and valleys coming into this venture because more than a year after the game’s launch, it is still racking up new users. In it, players are required to go places in order to find Pokemon—just like a real Pokemon trainer would. What the users would/could do with these Pokemon is still a bit premature. You can’t battle other trainers, only gym leaders. And when you battle, you simply tap like a madman on the screen. That said, Go is a fresh experience I’d be lying if I said I didn’t find interesting.
Pokemon TCG Online
Few know that this game exists. For a time being, it had been exclusive to iPads, but as it turns out it’s also now available in smartphones too. The underwhelming graphics notwithstanding, this game does the job if you want a simple virtual version of the iconic TCG.
Pokemon: Magikarp Jump
The newest kid on the block is the oddest one yet. In this game, you get to fish-sit a hungry Magikarp by tapping on food around the flailing little fellow. It is an obvious reply and a bid for nostalgia by the Pokemon Company to the Tamagotchi.
Pokemon Shuffle Mobile
If you haven’t played the DS version of this game, fret not. Not much has changed; in fact, taking a crack at it is a breeze. Little Poke-bobbleheads are presented to you on a board. You eliminate bobbleheads by tapping on the same Pokemon next to each other.
I’m leaving you with these too:
