The latest entry in the mega-popular monster collecting and battling series is here in the form of Pokémon Legends: Arceus. In an effort to nakedly capitalize on everyone searching for “games like Pokémon” to recommend some great mobile games, here we are with a list of games fit that exact criteria.
Whether you want just another way to play with the same pocket monsters you know and love, or want something that just takes the underlying features of collecting and battling to different places, this list has you covered with rock solid titles along with reviews to inform your choice.
After much waiting and excitement, the Pokemon Company and TiMi Studios have finally launched Pokemon Unite on Android and iOS. The game’s 5v5 MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle-Arena) format mixed with the world undoubtedly grabbed a lot of attention.
In Pokemon Unite, players will form a team of five Pokemon and pitch it against the opponent’s team. The team that manages to outscore the other wins.
What does Pokemon Unite look like?
Each match inPokemon Unite has a MOBA element. For each round, a player’s team of Pokemon will attack NPCs (wild Pokemon) and try to conquer their region of the map. As the round progresses, the wild Pokemon get more aggressive and difficult to defeat.
Catching Pokemon nets your team points, which can then be scored in your opponent's goal, which would usually be a tower in another MOBA. Your team will level up and unlock new moves throughout the match. This will help your Pokemon to evolve and become stronger. Additionally, each Pokemon will have a powerful Unite move that could turn the tide of battle.
Pokemon Unite Crossplay
Perhaps one of the best things about Pokemon Unite is the flexible crossplay that it offers. Players can install and play the game on their Android and iOS devices as well as Nintendo Switch. This will significantly reduce the matchmaking time. As the progress will be synced across devices, players can easily access the game anywhere.
Features in Pokemon Unite
Along with the novel gameplay, the game has introduced some amazing features. Players will be able to create Unite Squads, meaning they can team up with their mates. The new in-game events will make it easier to obtain and upgrade items.
The new battle pass is loaded with cosmetic items. Notably, the Holowear range has already become a hit with players. These are effectively skins that see Pokemon roaming the map with a variety of outfits.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic has announced they will keep some of the changes made during the pandemic
After much nagging, requests, and Twitter hashtags, Pokemon Go dev Niantic has decided to retain some of the exclusive features added for the COVID 19 pandemic. The developer took to Twitter to share its decision.
The folks behind Pokémon GO have some exciting things planned for their Halloween celebration, the first in-game event since it launched back in July. Starting October 26 and ending on November 1, trainers will be running into large numbers of spooky Pokémon while Candy will be extra bountiful. Let's check out the details.
CCGs, or collectible trading card games, have pretty much taken over mobile games at this point. Everyone's jumping on the bandwagon, and who could blame them? CCGs are fun for players and hugely profitable for developers and publishers. There's a wide array of CCGs devoted to beloved pop culture franchises, so of course a Plants vs. Zombies iteration was bound to pop up.Plants vs. Zombies Heroes isn't just another marketing ploy, though. Underneath the fun PvZ illustrations you're used to is a heavy duty card game that actually requires quite a bit of strategy to master.
But maybe you've already mastered it, and are looking for the next challenge. Look no further--we've drawn up a list of four other excellent CCGs to kill your time.
Pokémon GOjust got a new update today as part of Niantic's continuing efforts to support the game. Before you ask, no, they still haven't added a tracking feature, and no, people are not very happy about that. However, Niantic has thrown in a few new fixes that will make the lives ofpokémon trainers worldwide a touch easier. Let's take a look, shall we?
There's no need to panic about Pokemon GO. Though you're almost certain to have read articles in various places about how it has fallen off in terms of popularity since its stellar debut, that was inevitable. When your star burns as bright as Pokemon GO's did, literally the only place to go is down.
The numbers tell a slightly different story. Pokemon GO is still a top 20 app as we head into the holiday weekend in the U.S., even bouncing up a spot from the previous chart. That's not too shabby for a game that's been out for two months.
More importantly, it's still the top grossing iPhone game (though unlike some of its competitors for that throne, it's way further down on iPad). That should give Niantic all the resources it needs to keep plugging away on updates.
And make no mistake, those updates are definitely needed.
The Team Leaders in Pokemon GO have had it pretty easy up until now. They show up when players reach level 5, make their cases for joining their respective teams, and that's pretty much it. Light work, as Floyd Mayweather might say.
Niantic's latest update for the game changes that situation and turns every Team Leader into a consultant of sorts. Can't blame them for that, as there's money to be had in that field, or so I'm told.
They still don't have to commute or work out of an office, but here's what you need to know about the Team Leaders' new duties and the new update in general.
In the U.S., the bloom is off the Pokemon Go rose ever so slightly. It's still doing great, sitting atop the top grossing chart as it has for some time, but it's no longer among the top 10 free apps in downloads, possibly because darn near everyone who wants it already has it.
But while it may no longer be the all encompassing phenomenon it was in July and early August in the United States, it's as big as ever in some other countries -- maybe even bigger, if that's possible. Let's take a quick look at five places where Pokemon GO is still the unquestioned number one mobile game.
You may have heard people talk about a mythical "fate worse than death" before, but here's something that definitely fits that bill: getting banned from playing Pokemon GO -- forever.
We're being tongue in cheek while saying that, but it's happening more and more often. As reported by various media outlets over the last few days, Niantic has been issuing permanent bans to some Pokemon GO players for what it says are violations of the game's terms of service. To be fair, most people never read the TOS for, well, anything, but some of the issues the developers have pointed out are clear.
Things like using bots are actions that only the most passionate believers that users should be able to do whatever they want with software tend to defend. Other violations pointed out by Niantic are less obvious and have already been the subject of some debate within the Pokemon GO community.
But the rules are the rules, and all we can do is roll with them. In the interest of keeping you in the game, here are three things you shouldn't do if you want to avoid the banhammer.
