Freedom Games and TRAGsoft recently announced their monster taming game Coromon would be coming to the Nintendo Switch on 31st March.
Like Pokémon, you'll go on an adventure as a young trainer, catch 'mon, battle trainers and even put a stop to an evil organisation. There'll also be online PVP and a built-in Nuzlocke option. Ahead of the game's release, a new battle trailer has been uploaded - detailing some of the fine points about the strategic turn-based combat on offer.
Here's some additional PR and the release date trailer:
Embark on an adventure alongside a squad from more than 120 different Coromon. Battle through a classic RPG campaign and stop a shady organization from devastating the world!
Ensure Coromon squads are well versed in all three skill types: Physical, Special, and Status. Attack diversity makes all the difference in tense trainer battles.
Each Coromon skill depletes a limited stamina supply. Strategize each turn and decide on the right move, be it attacking, replenishing stamina by resting, or healing with a clutch item.
Physical skills use a Coromon’s Attack stats which can combo with other traits to gain an advantage. Bypass an opponent's physical defenses with Special skills to deal even more damage. Based on a
Coromon’s Special Attack stats, these skills can potentially create powerful combos with status effects.
Weave in Status skills to swing the hand of fate in your team’s favor with passive changes to your current Coromon or the enemy in front of them. Examples of these skills include temporary stat boosts, enemy debuffs, weather summons, among other game-changing effects.
Put the squad’s skills to the test against the Coromon Titans in multiphase boss fights. Muster all the fortitude and strategy your team can, as Titans will change phases inflicting different field hazards, call in backup, and other unexpected complications.
Take the skills mastered through Coromon’s campaign and go head-to-head in online PvP. Annihilate other trainers in casual or competitive ranked matches. See what meta-strategies the community gravitates toward and find a personal battle style to break the mold.

With Brilliant Diamond, Arceus and gen 9 this year I think I have plenty enough actual Pokemon to play.
For the mega fans of the genre who need pokemon-likes between pokemon games hopefully this game will be fun though.
Not sure if I’ll get this, but I have to say: the sprite-work is gorgeous!
No thanks I've played enough of these now I'm actually burnt out. Nexomon was really good but too grindy in my opinion and had some really annoying status ailments that admittedly really tested my patience to the point I came extremely close to losing my temper, something I never ever do when I play games. This looks alright but I'll stick to Legends Arceus and BDSP.
looks cool, love the sprite work, but would have loved something that felt a bit more distinct from pokemon. It's 100% ok for it to be similar or greatly inspired, but i feel like this game is missing that one thing that really sets it apart. At least what ive seen from the trailers, this is true. I'm sure it'll still be good though. The fans tend to know what's fun and whats not when it comes to games like this, and the devs are obviously pokemon fans. If any of the devs read this, I wish you the best with launch!
I don't mind games that mimic Pokemon but at the very least come up with a more interesting name.
Only one of these games I'd consider playing is some Digimon one I've seen go on a tasty sale a few times. Don't care for "open world" Pokemon when it's just empty space. Maybe in another 5 years they'll improve it enough to pique my interest.
Gotta say this looks way more aesthetically pleasing than Nexomon that’s for sure.
Will probably pick this up if it’s a decent price.
Tried the generous demo on Steam and it was a blast. 100 percent day 1 purchase.
@tanaka2687 Woo, glad you enjoyed the demo! 🙌
Maybe it's just the art style, but this is the first Pokemon clone to grab my interest. I played a bit of the Steam demo and had some fun, so I'll definitely pick it up on the Switch once it launches.
It looks gorgeous, but it really doesn't try to set itself apart from its source material, it would seem. Even the stat names are still the same. I do love the idea of boss battles, that looks fun. I'll keep an eye out for the reviews, but there's already so many clones around of Pokémon it's hard to keep track of which ones are really good. The addition of a Nuzlocke mode integrated sounds interesting too
Sprite work is beautiful. If the reviews and the story are good I'll get this day one.
Monomon, Hikikomorimon, Bakamon, Waifumon, Haremon....
Just trying to spitball some names for the next Pokémon clones.
Wow, this game looks gorgeous. I haven't played a Pokemon game in a long time. There are so many games out already, or coming out soon that I want to play. But I'm going to keep my eye on reviews for this one.
Game looks good.
@Buizel Because unlike a lot of Pokémon clones, this one actually does something better than the mainline Pokémon games which is slick 2D pixel animation. Gen 5 was alright but the tweening of limbs and camera changes often turned the Pokémon into really jagged pixel messes at times. This game has buttery smooth animation that is obvious to see right out the gate. I’m definitely more interested in this than the most recent Pokémon games.
Moemon already exists as a Pokémon Emerald mod and the quality of the sprites are surprisingly good, the context makes it weird though. There are also other games like that but generally you won’t see them on a conventional store page.
One I’ve had my eye on for Switch and definitely a day one buy.
Been watching this one for a while, and the demo was very promising. The sprite work is gorgeous.
A couple of design points they carried over from Pokémon will unfortunately bring it down a bit imo, but they also fixed a lot of design problems that have followed its inspiration for too long, and overall it looks great; more tempting than any recent Pokémon release. Will definitely be picking this one up on PC.
