Every Pokemon Game On The 3DS, Ranked (According To Metacritic)

Not counting the Pokedex, or Dream Radar apps, there were thirteen Pokemon games on the 3DS. That is a record for the franchise although not far from the norm. Since the series debuted over two decades ago, Nintendo and Game Freak have been eager to experiment and release mainline games and spin-offs aplenty for almost every Nintendo console since the original Game Boy.

The 3DS then is no different. That number thirteen isn’t even counting the multiple versions of each generation of games like Pokemon X & Y. In the rankings, they will only count as one to make things simpler. So, of these thirteen titles, which can be skipped and which are the must-play classics?

Updated June 8, 2021, by Tom Bowen: There have been some truly fantastic Pokemon games over the past 25 years, many of which came during the 3DS era. It's here that the mainline games finally made the leap to 3D, with many new mechanics also added to the series in the process. There were a fair amount of Pokemon spin-off titles created around this time too, although not all of them landed quite as well as their developers would perhaps have liked. Even so, for those looking for a way to fill the gap between now and the release of the Diamond & Pearl remakes, the 3DS Pokemon games are arguably a great place to start.

13 Pokemon Shuffle (56)

Release Date: February 18, 2015

Region: N/A

Starter Pokemon: N/A

Pokemon Shuffle is a free-to-play match-three puzzle game that released for the 3DS in early 2018. Players use special Pokemon blocks to fight other Pokemon in the hopes of "catching" them. It is by no means awful, but the free-to-play trappings certainly weigh the game down quite a bit more than they need to.

As with other freemium games, the game is loaded with poorly priced microtransactions, which didn't sit too well with fans or critics. That didn't stop more than six and a half million people from downloading the game though, making it one of the most played Pokemon spin-off games of all time.

12 Pokemon Rumble Blast (56)

Release Date: October 24, 2011

Region: Toyland

Starter Pokemon: Pikachu

While Nintendo has worked with Koei Tecmo on Dynasty Warriors spin-offs like Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors, they are yet to collaborate on a Pokemon Warriors project. Pokemon Rumble Blast follows a similar gameplay concept but unfortunately has a far greater monotonous wheel.

Though undoubtedly a big step up from the first Pokemon Rumble game, Blast still has a lot of problems. The graphics are poor, the gameplay is repetitive and the story is incredibly lackluster too. It's not bad in short bursts but lacks the substance required to justify the decision to release the game as a full-priced title.

11 Pokemon Rumble World (58)

Release Date: April 8, 2015

Region: The Kingdom of Toys

Starter Pokemon: Pikachu

Four years on from the release of Rumble Blast, another Rumble game arrived in the form of Pokemon Rumble World. Sadly, the developer Ambrella didn't seem to learn much from its past mistakes, although did at least opt for a free-to-play approach, which was a slight step up from the game's predecessor.

RELATED: Pokemon Console Variations You Never Knew Existed

It may not have felt like a waste of money like the previous game, but it still had a lot of issues. Like Pokemon Shuffle, the trappings were too high to really sink time into the game without paying money and the overall experience remained fairly underwhelming even for those who did.

10 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity (59)

Release Date: March 24, 2013

Region: The Pokemon World

Starter Pokemon: Pikachu, Oshawott, Tepig, Snivy & Axew

Gates to Infinity was the first Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game to grace the 3DS. For a roguelike game, it offers up a very kid-friendly take on the genre, which, although great for children, did not sit well with some older players. Critics were generally in agreement on this front, with many bemoaning the game's shallow combat and overall lack of difficulty.

Though none of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games are bad, some feel that they just don’t offer enough of a challenge to seasoned fans of the genre. The games all tend to feel incredibly similar to one another too and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is no different in this respect. 

9 Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon (69)

Release Date: November 20, 2015

Region: The Pokemon World

Starter Pokemon: 20 Available

Two years on from the North American release of Gates to InfinityPokemon Super Mystery Dungeon made its way to western shores. Spike Chunsoft seemed to learn a lot of lessons from the previous title too and even evolved some concepts, from gameplay elements to graphics.

Again, it’s not a spin-off that one has to play in order to become a mega fan, but the series was at least getting better at this point. It certainly helped that the game included all 720 Pokemon that had been introduced to the series at the time and also provided plenty of unique customization options for people to play around with.

8 Pokemon Battle Trozei (70)

Release Date: March 20, 2014

Region: N/A

Starter Pokemon: N/A

Pokemon Battle Trozei is a lot like Pokemon Shuffle, but it is not free to play. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, it’s a far better game for it. It won’t have any Tetris fans jumping ship, but Pokemon Battle Trozei at least manages to blend the concept of Pokemon and puzzle games together in a coherent way.

RELATED: Co-Op Games For Gamers That Love Puzzles

The strategic combat system works incredibly well and is just one of many great mechanics to have found their way into the game. The art style is solid too, although is let down somewhat by the game's poor music and the lack of online multiplayer functionality.

7 Detective Pikachu (71)

Release Date: February 18, 2015

Region: Ryme City

Starter Pokemon: Pikachu

The idea of a Pokemon-themed adventure game may have seemed a little ludicrous to some, yet Detective Pikachu ended up being a pretty solid game. It looks great, it has plenty of funny moments and it can be fairly challenging at times too. Most importantly though, it's a lot of fun.

Even though it is extremely easy to get through, the story is strong enough to keep players hooked. It was so good, in fact, that it spawned the series’ first ever live-action movie, which was also fairly well-received by fans and critics. Whether or not fans will ever get a sequel to either remains to be seen though.

6 Pokemon Picross (75)

Release Date: December 3, 2015

Region: N/A

Starter Pokemon: N/A

For those looking for a more traditional Pokemon puzzle game, Pokemon Picross is a fairly decent shout. Much like the Mario Picross game which came before it, the game doesn't really have too much to do with Pokemon, but thanks to the strength of the Picross formula, that needn't really be an issue.

Granted, the Pokemon skin doesn't really bring much to the table, but it certainly doesn't detract from the experience either. The end result is an excellent puzzle game that's aesthetically pleasing and capable of keeping players entertained and mentally stimulated for hours at a time.

5 Pokemon Art Academy (76)

Release Date: October 24, 2014

Region: N/A

Starter Pokemon: N/A

Pokemon Art Academy is another 3DS game that's effectively just been given a Pokemon skin. In all fairness, it at least offers tutorials demonstrating how players can draw their favorite Pokemon, although the 3DS itself can be somewhat limiting when it comes to the actual drawing part.

In a lot of ways, it’s more like a coloring book than an actual game, but it’s arguably a very good coloring book with high production values all around. Older players may not enjoy the experience all that much, but those aged below five or six will likely have a great time with the game. 

4 Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire (83/82)

Release Date: November 21, 2014

Region: Hoenn

Starter Pokemon: Treecko, Torchic & Mudkip

Though the likes of FireRed, LeafGreen, HeartGold & SoulSilver were all perfectly serviceable, Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire really raised the bar when it came to Pokemon remakes. Pretty much everything about the original games was improved and many newer series mechanics were added into the mix.

RELATED: Pokemon Diamond & Pearl: Major Issues That Must Be Fixed In The Remakes

Mega Evolution was perhaps the biggest addition, with many gen 3 Pokemon being treated to Mega forms. Mirage Spots allowed players to add a ridiculous number of Legendary Pokemon to their Pokedexes too, while the leap to 3D made returning to Hoenn an absolute delight.

3 Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon (84)

Release Date: November 17, 2017

Region: Alola

Starter Pokemon: Rowlet, Litten & Popplio

The decision to release Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon so soon after the base versions of the games went on sale was seen as a little strange by many, especially considering how little was actually changed. Granted, there is more content available in the updated titles, but there is also plenty of stuff missing as well.

One of the most noticeable additions is the concept of Ultra Beasts, with four of them available across the two games. There are also two new forms added for Necrozma, with players able to combine the Pokemon with Solgaleo or Lunala in much the same way that they could enhance Kyurem in Black 2 & White 2.

2 Pokémon Sun & Moon (87)

Release Date: November 18, 2016

Region: Alola

Starter Pokemon: Rowlet, Litten & Popplio

While not quite as innovative as the first two mainline Pokemon games on the 3DS, Pokemon Sun & Moon still have a lot to offer. The biggest changes came in the form of the games' gym battles as well as the idea of Pokemon having alternate, Alolan versions of themselves.

The concept of regional forms of Pokemon is one that has stuck with series since, with the latest generation of Pokemon games also featuring regional variations. The Alola region is a lot of fun to explore too, even if some of the Pokemon introduced there are a little uninspired when compared to those found in earlier generations of Pokemon games.

1 Pokemon X & Y (87/88)

Release Date: October 12, 2013

Region: Kalos

Starter Pokemon: Chespin, Fenneki & Froakie

As previously mentioned, Pokemon X & Y marked the series' debut on the 3DS and did so with a rather emphatic bang. This was the first time that players got to experience the mainline games with a more traditional 3D gameplay style and they were also treated to a brand new art style.

The sixth generation Pokemon games introduced Mega Evolutions, which have completely changed competitive play. There are plenty of other big changes too, like customizable protagonists and the introduction of Fairy-type Pokemon, all of which combine to make X & Y the very best Pokemon games available on the 3DS.

Pokémon (video game series)

Japanese video game series

This article is about the main RPG Pokémon video game series. For the Pokémon media franchise, see Pokémon. For a list of Pokémon games, see List of Pokémon video games.

Video game series

Pokémon[a] is a series of video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company under the Pokémon media franchise. Created by Satoshi Tajiri with assistance from Ken Sugimori, the first games, Pocket Monsters Red and Green, released in 1996 in Japan for the Game Boy, later released outside of Japan as Pokémon Red and Blue and the main series of role-playing video games (RPGs), referred as the "core series" by their developers,[1][2][3] have continued on each generation of Nintendo's handhelds. The most recently released core series games, Pokémon Sword and Shield, were released worldwide on the Nintendo Switch on November 15, 2019.[4] The upcoming core series games, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will be released in late 2021, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus in early 2022, both for the Nintendo Switch. They are remakes and a prequel of the 2006 Nintendo DS games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, respectively.

The core games are released in generations, each with different Pokémon, storylines, and characters. Remakes of the games are usually released around a decade after the original versions for the latest console at the time. While the main series consists of RPGs developed by Game Freak, many spin-off games based on the series have been developed by various companies, encompassing other genres such as action role-playing, puzzle, fighting, and digital pet games.

Pokémon is the world's largest media franchise,[5][6][7] with successful anime series, movies, and merchandise, with spin-off game Pokémon Go having crossed 1 billion mobile game downloads worldwide.[8] By November 24, 2017, more than 300 million Pokémon games had been sold worldwide on handheld and home consoles, across 76 titles, including spin-offs.[9] As of March 2021[update], the series has sold over 380 million units worldwide.[10] This makes Pokémon the fourth best-selling video game franchise, behind Nintendo's own Mario franchise, Tetris and Call of Duty.

Generations

All of the licensed Pokémon properties overseen by The Pokémon Company are divided roughly by generation. These generations are roughly chronological divisions by release; when an official sequel in the main role-playing game series is released that features new Pokémon, characters, and possibly new gameplay concepts, that sequel is considered the start of a new generation of the franchise. The main games and their spin-offs, the anime, manga, and trading card game are all updated with the new Pokémon properties each time a new generation begins. The franchise began its eighth and current generation with Pokémon Sword and Shield, which were released worldwide for the Nintendo Switch on November 15, 2019.

First generation (1996–1999)

The original Pokémon games are Japanese role-playing video games (RPGs) with an element of strategy and were created by Satoshi Tajiri for the Game Boy.

The Pokémon series began with the release of Pocket Monsters Red and Green for the Game Boy in Japan. When these games proved popular, an enhanced Blue version was released sometime after, and the Blue version was reprogrammed as Pokémon Red and Blue for international release. The original Green version was not released outside Japan.[11] Afterwards, a second enhanced remake, Pokémon Yellow, was released to use the color palette of the Game Boy Color and more of a stylistic resemblance to the popular Pokémon anime. This first generation of games introduced the original 151 species of Pokémon (in National Pokédex order, encompassing all Pokémon from Bulbasaur to Mew), as well as the basic game concepts of capturing, training, battling and trading Pokémon with both computer and human players. These versions of the games take place within the fictional Kanto region, though the name "Kanto" was not used until the second generation. Spin-off first-generation titles include Pokémon Pinball; an adaptation of the Pokémon Trading Card Game for Game Boy Color; an on-rails photography simulator for Nintendo 64 titled Pokémon Snap; a Nintendo 64 Pokémon-themed adaptation of Tetris Attack, Pokémon Puzzle League. A 3D Nintendo 64 incarnation of the handhelds' battle system, Pokémon Stadium; and a co-starring role for several species in the Nintendo 64 fighting game Super Smash Bros..[12] At the Nintendo Space World in 2000, a game was revealed briefly with Meowth and Team Rocket singing a song. This was one of the earliest introductions of the Pokémon Togepi and Bellossom. This game was called Meowth's Party, but was not developed into a playable game. Instead, the song/video was played at the end of an episode of Pokémon, and a CD was made for retail in Japan for a limited time. This is the first time Missingno. was discovered.

Second generation (1999–2002)

The second generation of Pokémon video games began in 1999 with the Japanese release of Pokémon Gold and Silver for the Game Boy Color, with Australia and North America getting the game in October 2000 and European release date of April 2001. Like the previous generation, an enhanced version, titled Pokémon Crystal, was later released.

This generation introduced 100 new species of Pokémon (starting with Chikorita and ending with Celebi), for a total of 251 Pokémon to collect, train, and battle. New gameplay features include a day-and-night system (reflecting the time of the day in the real world) which influences events in the game; full use of the Game Boy Color's color palette; an improved interface and upgraded inventory system; better balance in the collection of Pokémon and their moves, statistics and equipable items (a new addition); the addition of two new Pokémon types (Dark and Steel) to better balance the strengths and weaknesses of each Pokémon; Pokémon breeding; and a new region named Johto. After exploring Johto, the player can travel east to explore the adjacent Kanto region.

Spin-off games in the second-generation include Pokémon Puzzle Challenge, the adaptation of Pokémon Puzzle League—a puzzle game created by Zoppf industries—made specifically for the Game Boy Color; the Nintendo 64pet simulatorHey You, Pikachu!; the Pokémon Stadium sequel, Pokémon Stadium 2, for Nintendo 64; several Pokémon mini-games for the e-Reader; and a co-starring role for several Pokémon species in the Super Smash Bros. sequel Super Smash Bros. Melee for the GameCube.[13] The Pokémon mini was a handheld game console released in December 2001 in Japan and 2002 in Europe and North America.

This generation started a trend among even-numbered generations, giving the Pokémon Eevee new type evolutions beyond the original three of the first generation.

Third generation (2002–2006)

Pokémon entered its third generation with the 2002 release of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire for Game Boy Advance and continued with the Game Boy Advance remakes of Pokémon Red and Green, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen (Red and Green representing the original Japanese first generation games; territories outside Japan instead saw releases of Red and Blue). An enhanced version of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire titled Pokémon Emerald followed after.

The third generation introduced 135 new Pokémon (starting with Treecko and ending with Deoxys) for a total of 386 species. It also features a more visually detailed environment compared to previous games, "natures" which affect Pokémon stats, a new 2-on-2 Pokémon battling mechanic, a special ability system applying to each Pokémon in battle, the Pokémon Contest sub-game, the new region of Hoenn, the ability to select the protagonist's gender and Secret Bases: customizable "rooms" where the player can display items they have collected in-game and battle against real friends. Secret Bases can be found in bushes, trees, or small cave openings in landscapes by using the Pokémon move, Secret Power, which can be taught to virtually all Pokémon. However, this generation also garnered some criticism for leaving out several gameplay features, including the day-and-night system introduced in the previous generation (which was removed due to internal-battery save problems), and it was also the first installment that encouraged the player to collect merely a selected assortment of the total number of Pokémon rather than every existing species (202 out of 386 species are catchable in the Ruby and Sapphire versions). Around this time that the franchise was regaining its popularity and it managed to ship over 100 million games worldwide.[14][15]

Third-generation spin-off titles include Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire for Game Boy Advance; Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team and Red Rescue Team for Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS; Pokémon Dash, Pokémon Trozei! and Pokémon Ranger for Nintendo DS; Pokémon Channel and Pokémon Box: Ruby & Sapphire for GameCube; and two role-playing games for the GameCube, consisting of the games Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.

Fourth generation (2006–2010)

In 2006, Japan began the fourth generation of the franchise with the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl for Nintendo DS. The games were released in North America on April 22, 2007 and in Australia on June 21, 2007. The game was released in the UK and Europe on July 27, 2007.[16] Other main series games in the fourth generation include Pokémon Platinum, a director's cut version of Diamond and Pearl in the same vein as Pokémon Yellow, Crystal, and Emerald.[17][18] It was released for the Nintendo DS in Japan on September 13, 2008,[19] in North America on March 22, 2009,[20][21] and in Australia and Europe on May 14, 2009[22] and May 22, 2009[23] respectively. It was also announced that Pokémon Gold and Silver would be remade for the Nintendo DS as Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.[24] Released in Japan on September 12, 2009, the games were later released to North America, Australia, and Europe during March 2010.[25][26][27]

The fourth-generation introduces another 107 new species of Pokémon (starting with Turtwig and ending with Arceus), bringing the number of Pokémon species to 493. This generation is the first to have 3D graphics in the main series game, although it is still a mixture of both 3D graphics and sprites. New gameplay concepts include a restructured move-classification system, online multiplayer trading and battling via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, the return (and expansion) of the second generation's day-and-night system, the expansion of the third generation's Pokémon Contests into "Super Contests", and the new region of Sinnoh, which has an underground component for multiplayer gameplay in addition to the main overworld. Secret Bases also appear in Sinnoh but can only be created and housed in Sinnoh's underground. HeartGold and SoulSilver also introduced the Pokéathlon to the Johto region, which consists of many Pokémon based sporting events making use of the stylus.

Spin-off games in the fourth generation include the Pokémon Stadium follow-up Pokémon Battle Revolution for Wii (which has Wi-Fi connectivity as well[28]), Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia and Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs for Nintendo DS, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and their sister game, Explorers of Sky all for the Nintendo DS, and a co-starring role for Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Lucario, and a Pokémon Trainer (who uses Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard for fighting) in the 2008 Wii fighterSuper Smash Bros. Brawl.

Fifth generation (2010–2013)

The fifth generation of Pokémon began on September 18, 2010 with the release of Pokémon Black and White in Japan. They were then released in North America, Europe, and Australia in March 2011. They have released on the Nintendo DS, the same console as its predecessing generation.

The games take place in the Unova region. New features include the C-Gear, a feature where players can use Wi-Fi options and customizations; two new battle methods ("Triple Battles", where three Pokémon are sent out at once, and Rotation Battles, where three Pokémon are also sent out at the same time, but the trainer can switch one Pokémon out of the three that are present); "Battle Tests", where trainers battle each other to see who has stronger Pokémon; the Pokémon Musicals (similar to Pokémon Contests), which have trainers use their Pokémon to dance in a theater with other Pokémon; and the ability to not waste Technical Machines (TMs), also when found the first time.

This generation introduced a total of 156 new Pokémon (beginning with Victini and ending with Genesect), the most of any generation so far. It was also the first generation where the first new Pokémon in National Pokédex order (Victini) is not a starter. It also introduced another new feature, the seasons, which two Pokémon (Deerling and Sawsbuck) represent. Unlike previous generations, which would introduce some species of Pokémon that were evolutionary relatives of older-generation Pokémon, the fifth generation's selection was all-original, in an attempt to make the primary versions feel like a brand-new game.

The other main series games, and the additions to Black and White, titled Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, are direct sequels. They take place in the Unova region two years later and were released in Japan on June 23, 2012, and in North America, Australia, and Europe in October of that year for Nintendo DS. They are somewhat different of their predecessors; there are different protagonist trainers, and many of the other important characters have changed as well. The games also introduced a new feature, the "Pokémon World Tournament", where trainers can battle gym leaders and champions from older regions, including Unova. The games also broke the tradition of releasing a third version as an addition to the primary versions.

Spin-off fifth generation games include sequels Pokémon Rumble Blast and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity for Nintendo 3DS, PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond for Wii, and Pokémon Rumble U for Wii U, a downloadable game. Others include Learn with Pokémon: Typing Adventure (a typing game) and Pokémon Conquest (a crossover game) for Nintendo DS, and downloadable reference applications Pokédex 3D, Pokédex 3D Pro (for Nintendo 3DS), and Pokédex for iOS (for iOS devices), which allows players to view information of Pokémon species while they have 3D models. Various fifth generation Pokémon have appeared in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate including Reshiram and Zekrom, Klinklang, Axew, Druddigon, and more.

Sixth generation (2013–2016)

On December 24, 2012, Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream posted a greetings card sent out by Game Freak. In the card, Junichi Masuda exclaimed that during 2013, they intend to further evolve the world of Pokémon. On December 29, 2012, a new Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 commercial aired in Japan, and ending with a message, informing Pokémon fans that the latest news would be announced on January 8, 2013. On January 4, 2013, both the Japanese and English Pokémon website confirmed that an announcement would be made on January 8. On January 7, 2013, the Japanese website explained that the Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata would hold a 10-minute "Pokémon Direct" video conference to announce the big Pokémon news. On January 8, 2013, Satoru Iwata announced the sixth generation of Pokémon, with the new paired games, Pokémon X and Y, which were released on the Nintendo 3DS on October 12, 2013 worldwide.[29] The X and Y games are rendered in full 3D;[30] however, only select parts of the game can be displayed in stereoscopic 3D.[31] The video introduced the player characters, the starter Pokémon; Grass-type Chespin (Japanese: Harimaron (ハリマロン)), the Fire-type Fennekin (Japanese: Fokko (フォッコ)), and the Water-type Froakie (Japanese: Keromatsu (ケロマツ)), and two other Pokémon, not named until later; a bird-like Pokémon called Yveltal (イベルタル, Iberutaru) having a shape similar to the letter Y and a deer-like Pokémon called Xerneas (ゼルネアス, Zeruneasu) with X-shapes in its eyes. A month later, Sylveon (Japanese: Nymphia (ニンフィア, Ninfia)), a new evolved form of Eevee belonging to the games' new Fairy-type was revealed and is currently the last Eeveelution to be revealed.[32][33]

This generation introduced a total of 72 new Pokémon, the new Fairy type, Mega Evolution, the Kalos region, Trainer customization, Super Training, and three new battle modes: Sky Battles, Horde Encounters, and Inverse Battle. This generation is also the first to be compatible with Pokémon Bank.

Greninja, the final evolved form of Froakie, would later go on to represent the sixth generation of Pokémon in the hit fighting game, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

On May 7, 2014, Nintendo revealed the games Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in a teaser trailer, remakes of the third generation games Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. They were released worldwide in November 2014.[34]

On August 26, 2014, Pokkén Tournament was announced and was released on July 16, 2015 in Japanese arcades and was released on March 18, 2016 worldwide for Wii U. It was developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment.[35] In July 2016, Niantic and Nintendo released a free-to-play augmented reality game titled Pokémon Go which was released for Android and iOS devices.[36]

Seventh generation (2016–2019)

During a Nintendo Direct presentation on February 26, 2016, two new Pokémon titles were announced, titled Pokémon Sun and Moon. The games were released on the Nintendo 3DS on November 18, 2016, in Japan, North America, and Australia, and in Europe on November 23, 2016.[37] The games were the first since the second generation to be backwards-compatible with other titles, including Pokémon X and Y; Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire; and the Virtual Console re-releases of Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow. On June 6, 2017, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon were announced. The two games offer new additions to the story of Pokémon Sun and Moon, including new features, and was released worldwide on the Nintendo 3DS on November 17, 2017.[38] On May 29, 2018, two new Pokémon games in the main Pokémon franchise, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, were announced. They are remakes of Pokémon Yellow with gameplay mechanics borrowed from Pokémon Go and were released worldwide on the Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018.

In total, this generation introduced 88 new Pokémon, Alolan forms, trials, Z-moves, Poké Pelago, and Festival Plaza. It was also the first one to introduce Pokémon mid-generation, with five new Pokémon making their debut in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and two new Pokémon debuting in Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!

Eighth generation (2019–)

During E3 2017, Nintendo and The Pokémon Company announced that Game Freak was developing a new core Pokémon role-playing game set to release for the Nintendo Switch[39] in "2018 or later."[40][41] The game is the eighth generation of Pokémon.[42]

Along with the announcement of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! it was confirmed that another core Pokémon role-playing game would be released in late 2019. It was clarified that the 2019 game was the one mentioned during E3 2017, not the Let's Go games. Game director Junichi Masuda stated that it would also "follow in the tradition of Pokémon X and Y and Pokémon Sun and Moon".[43][44] The CEO of The Pokémon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara, also confirmed that the upcoming core title would not have influences from Pokémon Go like Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! had.[45][46]

On February 27, 2019, on the 23rd anniversary of the franchise, Pokémon Sword and Shield were confirmed for Nintendo Switch, which were released worldwide on November 15, 2019.[47][48]

The eighth-generation takes place in the Galar region and introduced 81 new Pokémon, Galarian forms, the Champion Cup, Dynamax, Gigantamax forms, Max Raid battles, and Pokémon Camp.

On January 9, 2020, two expansion packs titled The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra were announced. The Isle of Armor was released on June 17, 2020, and The Crown Tundra was released on October 22, 2020.[49]

On November 26, 2020 at the Macy's Thanksgiving parade, Pokémon teased its 2021 25th anniversary logo and details for its special celebration "soon".[50]

On February 26, 2021, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl were announced, remakes of the fourth generation games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl developed by ILCA and set to release later that year. On the same day, Pokémon Legends: Arceus was announced, a prequel to Diamond and Pearl.

On May 26, 2021, it was announced that Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl would be releasing on November 19, 2021, and that Pokémon Legends: Arceus would be releasing on January 28, 2022; the boxarts for the games were also revealed.

One of the consistent aspects of most Pokémon games—spanning from Pokémon Red and Blue on the Game Boy to the Nintendo 3DS games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon—is the choice of one of three different Pokémon at the start of the player's adventures; these three are often labeled "starter Pokémon".[51] Players can choose a Pokémon type — Grass-type, Fire-type, or Water-type Pokémon indigenous to that particular region.[52] For example, in Pokémon Red and Blue, the player has the choice of starting with Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle. The exception to this rule is Pokémon Yellow, where players are given a Pikachu, an Electric-type mouse Pokémon, famous for being the mascot of the Pokémon media franchise; unique to Pokémon Yellow, the three starter Pokémon from Red and Blue can be obtained during the quest by a single player.[53]

Another consistent aspect is that the player's rival will always choose the type that has a type advantage over the player's chosen Pokémon as their starter Pokémon (excluding Sun and Moon and Sword and Shield.). For instance, if the player picks the Fire-type Charmander, the rival will always pick the Water-type Squirtle. This does not affect the first battle between the rivals, as they can only use Normal-type attacks at this point, meaning that they cannot exploit weaknesses. The exception to this is again Pokémon Yellow, in which the rival picks Eevee, a Normal-type Pokémon with multiple evolutions. Sun and Moon also is an exception is this rule, as the rival picks the starter weak toward the player's starter, with the Pokémon that has the type advantage going to a trainer in the Champion battle.

However, in Pokémon Black and White, there are two rivals; one picks the Pokémon with a type advantage over the player's chosen Pokémon, while the other chooses the Pokémon with the type disadvantage. In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum, another Trainer chooses the Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's chosen Pokémon, but never battles the player; instead, this character battles alongside the player as a tag partner in certain situations.

The situation is similar in Pokémon X and Y, but there are four rivals. Two of them receive the starter Pokémon in an arrangement similar to Pokémon Black and White, but the other two have completely different Pokémon.[54]

Reception

[icon]

This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (February 2014)

After the first five months of release, the Game Boy games sold almost 3 million copies.[120] They have been credited as a factor in the Game Boy maintaining strong sales in Japan well beyond the typical lifespan of a game system.[121] The series has sold over 279 million units (inclusive of spin-off titles; 210 million for the mainline Pokémon games) as of February 29, 2016,[122] giving it the distinction of being one of the best-selling video game series in history.[123] Guinness World Records awarded the Pokémon series eight records in Guinness World Records: Gamer's Edition 2008, including "Most Successful RPG Series of All Time", "Game Series With the Most Spin-Off Movies" and "Most Photosensitive Epileptic Seizures Caused by a TV Show".[124] As of March 2020[update], the series has sold over 368 million units.[10]

The Pokémon video game series is the basis of the Pokémon franchise, which includes the Pokémon anime, the Pokémon Trading Card Game, the Pokémon manga, and various toys. The anime series has run for over 900 episodes, accompanied by 19 feature films, with a twentieth in production. The trading card game and its expansion sets have grown to around 3,000 unique cards in total, and continue to draw a healthy player base to its official international tournaments. The extent of global toy and merchandise sales since 1996 cover broad markets and high quantities.[125]

IGN ranked Pokémon as the 17th greatest desired game series: "the basic gameplay premise boasts solid, addictive play mechanics, and several of the handheld RPGs deserve to be in every gamer's collection.[126]GamesRadar listed Pokémon as the No. 1 Nintendo game "not made by Nintendo", stating that having to catch each Pokémon made the games addictive.[127]

On September 28, 2018, Junichi Masuda revealed that during the early years of developing Pokémon games that "game data was nearly lost in a computer crash". Masuda described it as "the most nerve-racking moment in development", saying "“We were developing the game on these Unix computer stations called the SunSPARCstation 1. We’re developing, and they’re these Unix boxes, and they crashed quite a bit".[128]

It was released in Japan on the Nintendo eShop on July 14, 2012, and internationally on November 8, 2012.

Pokémon Go[edit]

Main article: Pokémon Go

The augmented reality mobile game Pokémon Go was released in July 2016 on both Android and iOS platforms. It utilizes internal GPS tracking system in order to find and catch Pokémon in real-time. The system places gyms and Pokéstops in predetermined locations (such as landmarks) throughout the world in order to get the player active and become a Pokémon trainer in real life. The Pokémon themselves spawn randomly, with some conditions; nocturnal Pokémon have a higher chance to spawn at night, and water type pokémon may spawn close to water. Gyms are used to battle and train Pokémon against other players in the area, and nearby PokéStops give free items when spun (they have a 5-minute cooldown per use). It originally featured the 151 original Generation 1 Pokémon. In February 2017, generation 2 Pokémon were added excluding the legendaries such as Suicune, Raikou, Entei, Celebi, Lugia, and Ho-Oh. In July 2017, the legendary Pokémon were released. Niantic has since added the regions of Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova into Pokémon Go. While the title is free-to-play, it also implements microtransactions, allowing players to spend real currency to gain access to more items in game. The game was met with mixed responses when released. In September 2016, Niantic released the Pokémon Go Plus, a $35 wearable, which issues alerts about any events in the game, including the appearance of a Pokémon or nearby PokéStop.[72]

The service is primarily aimed toward Pokémon Sword and Shield and Pokémon can be transferred between them and the service at will. Pokémon contained in Pokémon Bank can be transferred to Home but would be a one-way transfer and cannot be transferred back to the aforementioned titles. The same can be said about Pokémon transferred from the Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! titles, except this one way transfer system only applies after you transfer a Pokémon into Pokémon Home, then into Pokémon Sword and Shield. On November 11, 2020, Niantic released an update for Pokémon Go that allows the unidirectional transfer of Pokémon to Pokémon Home.[80][81][82]
