One other addition is that the game will see the return of an iconic variant of Pikachu in the game. Surfing Pikachu is a well-known variant of the iconic character that has been seen in multiple iterations. From references in Pokemon Yellow and some Gen II games, the variant cruised it’s way into our hearts. So it’s pretty cool to see the reference return.

Players can also control their Poke friends outside of battle as well. Using touch controls gamers can interact with and play with their chosen Pokemon. Doing so will grant stat boosts and other goodies throughout the course of the games.
