The game was first unveiled in June 2020 during a Pokemon Present digital event. The Pokemon Company released a trailer for the game, which received over 100k dislikes within a day. This made the game get a rocky start, however, the developers managed to work on and improve the game, to receive a rating of over 4 stars on both the Apple App Store and Google’s Play Store.
To recall, the game was originally released on the Nintendo Switch back in July.
Apart from this, the game recently added a new playable Pokemon, named Sylveon today.
