There are three planned Pokemon games planned to release this year. These exhilarant games are named Detective Pikachu, which is going to be released February 3rd, in Japan, Pokken Tournament, which is going to be released around everywhere on March 18th, and finally in “early 2016”, Pokemon GO will be released around the world. Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo, was announced October 23rd, 2013, and was considered as a joke at that time.

Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo, was announced October 23rd, 2013, and was considered as a joke at that time. Forgotten, nobody expected for it to be re-announced in January this year. Not much is known about this game so far but it seems that the Pikachu in this game can talk, the antagonist is a blue pikachu, and the main character named Tim Goodman, which just moved to Rhyme City. The gameplay mostly consists of trying to find evidence to solve mysteries.

Pokken Tournament, was announced July 16, 2015, but will be released on March 18th on the Wii U everywhere in the world. Consisting of around 16 main battlers, this game is full of other surprises too. This game does not only have 16 characters though, it also includes 20 support characters and even an additional 122 different pokemon that will watch your duels. There are two different modes you can fight in, one called Field Mode, where you can battle in a 3D environment, and the other is Duel Mode where you fight in a 2D turf, which is probably similar to Super Smash Bros, also released by Nintendo.

Pokemon GO, was announced September 10, 2015, but will be released “early 2016”.This free­to­play app is a real world type of game where you look for Pokemon in your own neighborhood. Not much else is known about this game but hopefully it will be released soon.
