Pokémon Sparkle Version is coming out August 2016 for the Nintendo Go, and is a Launch Tittle. It will be coming out along-side the other Launch Tittles.
GameplayThe game runs on an updated version of the Gen. VII engine, giving the graphics a little more HD than the ones in Pokémon Sun & Moon. Other than that, it plays pretty similar to the other games in the past.
The éPhone is a replacement for both the PokéDex and the PokéGear. It's basically the iPhone of the Pokémon World. You can download apps (such as games and other in-game tools), music, and also numbers from various trainers, so you can re-challenge them later. But most importantly, Prof. Cypress can download the PokéDex App, which basically acts as your PokéDex. The new thing about it is that you don't have to catch the Pokémon to add them to the PokéDex! You can just press a button on the touch screen mid-battle to get it's info. It wont even take up a move!
There are two new typings being added. These are the Robotic Type and the Special Type. Here are the Pokémon that have been retyped.
In addition to these two new typings, the type chart was changed. Here is the new updated chart.
There are also three new contest typings These are Fun, Spooky, and Swagger. In addition to this, the moves has gone through some re-typing, and each Pokémon are assigned to one or two of these typings, as well as their normal elemental typings.
New Battle Systems
The story starts with a professor. He introduces himself as Professor Alexander Cypress, and welcomes you to the world of Pokémon! He reveals that he puts forth most of his studies into the ancient past, to discover how things used to be. He then asks if you're male, female, name, what you look like, and finally, asks you what your dream is. You can then pick between Pokémon Battle Master, Perfect Pokémon Performer, or a Pokémon Professor. Whichever you choose will decide the story for the whole entire game.
