As usual, story in Pokemon (2018) for SWITCH focuses on a novice pokemon trainer who begins their adventure with a pokemon of their choosing. Our hero explores more and more locations and faces other trainers in order to prove that he/she is the best pokemon trainer in the region.
Gameplay in Pokemon (2018) for SWITCH is not that different from what we could see in the series’ previous installments. As we play, we explore more and more locations where we can find and catch new types of pokemons. Each pokemon has its own unique stats, attacks, and abilities that influence its capability in combat against other trainers (controlled by A.I. or other players) and pokemon. The combat here is turn-based.
