11. Pokemon Home

The first game on this list is not strictly under the category of a game. It is more of a supporting app for the portable Pokemon games that you have on your mobile or console. In one word, it can be described as a Pokemon carrier. Pokemon Home will allow you to transfer a Pokemon from the main game to its system.

This makes it easy for you to track your Pokemons and clear your goal of completing the National Pokedex. A trading system is also available in this application which allows you to exchange items with fellow Pokemon players.

This can be done through the help of a Wonder Box or GTS. So, what are you waiting for? Download this game and remove all the worries about Pokemon trading forever.  

10. Pokemon Playhouse

Pokemon Playhouse is a fun and wholesome game that makes your favourite characters look cuter than ever. The main idea is to allow you to have an experience as a Pokemon breeder where you take care of young Pokemons who have recently hatched from their eggs.

You can immerse yourself in a total of eight activities that you can partake in with your Pokemon. You can groom them properly, read out stories to them, or even sing them a beautiful song.

This will be your chance to follow in the footsteps of one of the best characters in Pokemon, Brock. But perhaps it will be better if you don’t follow him completely and chase after girls. There may not be a Misty to drag you away. 

9. Pokemon Smile

How about a Pokemon game that helps you to maintain your hygiene? Although the idea may sound wayward, Pokemon Smile is a game that brings that concept to reality. It can be perfect for kids and adults to maintain a healthy practice throughout their life combined with their favourite Pokemons.

To play this game you just need to place your phone in such a way that your face directly faces the screen. Now, as you brush you can see a Pokemon appearing on the screen and defeating all the bacteria on your teeth.

Do you have any idea how adorable that sounds? I know we are all guilty of not brushing our teeth regularly. So, a Pikachu appearing on our teeth virtually may just do the trick and force a habit out of us.

 This particular game brings a whole new level of simplicity to catching Pokemons. The entirety of the Pokemon series and games are based around capturing your favourite pocket monsters in a Pokeball and completing the Pokedex.

 This game combines that with a puzzle to make things all the more interesting. You will need to solve the puzzle that will appear on your screen in order to catch any wild Pokemon.

 It goes without saying that the puzzle will also be Pokemon themed and the HP you deduct from the wild Pokemon will depend on the number of combo moves you are able to make.

Magikarp is often dubbed as the most useless Pokemon in this gaming franchise. This is what makes it so ironic that not only does it have its own individual game but it is also one of the more popular ones. How crazy is that! Magikarp finally has the last laugh.

 Similar to the only move that it can learn, your objective is also to create the biggest splash in the game. First, you need to train your Magikarp properly and make it jump the highest distance possible. The only catch is that it will retire on losing a match and you have to start all over again with better stats.

5. Pokemon Unite

Pokemon Unite is going to revolutionise mobile gaming and it may well be the best thing we’ll ever see. The game will be a Pokemon-themed MOBA where players can use their favourite Pokemon to battle and evolve them in the process.
