I’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Quest lately – I go in spurts with it and you’ve played the game, then you know you can only play for a little bit at a time. A message pops up once in a while that got me wondering about the future of the game.
I’ve noticed this before but have never really thought about it. I was playing the game the other day and a message popped up on the loading screen saying something along the lines of, “Supposedly there are 17 or more types of Pokemon.”
Now, I got excited because I thought that was Nintendo’s way of hinting that they may be adding a new type of Pokemon to the next generation since there’s a new core game in the works for the Switch.
Then I realized that there are already “17 or more” types of Pokemon because there’s 18 total.
So I started thinking again.
Do you think Nintendo is ever going to add onto Pokemon Quest? The game only has 150 Pokemon, the Kanto region, the original Pokemon. So, there’s no dark type Pokemon or Fairy type. Dark was introduced in the Johto region and they’ve been slowly adding each generation of Pokemon to Pokemon Go, so why not do the same thing to Pokemon Quest?
Of course, Pokemon Quest is a pretty small game and there’s not much gameplay to it at all. So I don’t see how or why they would add the other 6 – or 7 – generations to it. I can’t imagine them adding DLC to a free game and adding sequels would be way too much.
It was just a random thought that occurred to me, though. I was curious as to why they said “17 or more types” rather than just saying there’s “18 types.” Then I realized not all the types are in the Kanto region, so there’s that.
Who knows what will happen though. In the meantime, I’m still going to try to beat the game.
