The Pokémon Company recently hosted its 2019 Press Conference in Tokyo, Japan. The press conference covered a number of topics of interest to Pokémon fans. Read on below for the official announcements:
Can’t wait to keep sleuthing with Detective Pikachu? Plans are under way to bring this crime-solving Pikachu to Nintendo Switch! The details of this game are still a mystery…so keep checking back here for more clues.
Introducing Pokémon HOME, a cloud service that will work with Nintendo Switch and iOS and Android devices, allowing you to bring over the Pokémon that you’ve shared adventures with throughout your journey.
Pokémon HOME isn’t tied to a single game system, meaning you can connect with Pokémon Bank, along with #PokemonLetsGo, #PokemonSwordShield, and #PokemonGO. It also features trading functionality. Bring your Pokémon home to #PokemonHOME in early 2020.
In 2016, Pokémon GO turned the simple act of walking into entertainment, making the entire world into a game. We’re about to do it again, Trainers—this time, for sleeping. We’re pleased to announce the development of Pokémon Sleep, a new app from @Pokemon_cojp that tracks a user’s time sleeping and brings a gameplay experience unlike any other! #PokemonSleep is coming in 2020.
In conjunction with #PokemonSleep, we’ve developed a new device: the Pokémon GO Plus +!
⬇️ Pokémon GO Plus + Details ⬇️
☀️ Use it as a Pokémon GO Plus during the day.
🌙 Put it next to your pillow at night to track your time sleeping.
🎮 It sends this sleep information to your smartphone via Bluetooth.
We’re excited to team up with @NintendoAmerica and @NianticLabs again on this new addition. While you wait for more info, try to catch one of the special sleeping Snorlax appearing in #PokemonGO to celebrate!
Dreaming of becoming a Pokémon master? This is your time! Get ready for Pokémon Masters, a new game that allows you to battle alongside your favorite Pokémon Trainers from the main series RPGs.
Fun fact: #PokemonMasters began with a suggestion from Ken Sugimori of @GAMEFREAK_info, who wanted to create a game featuring all past and present Pokémon Trainers from the video games.
