The newest Pokémon game is available right now for Nintendo Switch owners. Just announced at a press conference in Japan, Pokémon Quest features creatures from the series' Kanto region, but with a Minecraft-ish blocky appearance. The game is advertised as "free to start" so we'd expect some pay options, but it also includes new Power Stones that can upgrade your monsters and help them become any kind of Pokémon you'd like. Plus, if you don't have a Switch, Nintendo plans to release versions of Pokémon Quest for iOS and Android.

Beyond that free-to-play game, the company also announced a new "core series" game that will be released in the second half of 2019, and two new Pokémon Let's Go games for Switch that connect to the Pokémon Go mobile game.
