If you've been enjoying Pokémon Quest on your Switch, or especially if you've been waiting to get your hands on the smartphone version of the game instead, you'll no doubt be pleased to know that the game has launched on mobile devices today (27th June).

This latest, free-to-play, pocket monster adventure had a very decent launch on Switch, generating over a million downloads in around two days, and we suspect that this mobile edition of the game will perform just as strongly. The pick-up-and-play gameplay style and short expeditions present in the game feel like a perfect fit for mobile play, and the Pokémon branding alone will likely attract some fans of megahit Pokémon GO. If you're someone who will be experiencing the game for the first time today, feel free to check out our beginner's guide which should help you get to grips with everything you need to know.

In case you weren't aware, it's worth noting that the Switch and mobile versions of Pokémon Quest cannot interact with each other, and data cannot be transferred between the two. If you were hoping to transfer your Switch version save file over to mobile, this is sadly impossible.

Pokémon Quest is available from the App Store and Google Play for free. Optional in-game purchases are available, although you can play through the game without spending anything if you prefer.
