The next big mobile Pokémon game is launching this summer. This morning, the Pokémon Company provided some proper details on Pokémon Masters, its upcoming collaboration with DeNA. In addition to a release window for the iPhone and Android game, we also learned a bit about how the game will play, and it sounds like a big departure for the series.
Pokémon Masters takes place in a new region called Pasio, which is described as an “artificial island.” The real shift, though, is that you’re not collecting pokémon; instead, you’re forming teams with other trainers. “The idea was to create a gameplay experience where you could befriend not only pokemon, but trainers,” Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara explained during the presentation.
