Move over Pokémon, there’s a new catch-’em-all craze coming to Switch very soon in the shape of Coromon, an original series from developer TRAGsoft. As you might expect, this new title does owe quite a bit to the original monster taming franchise. However, it does more than enough to differentiate itself as a fresh experience, and one ideal for those looking for a challenge over a walk in the park with a Pikachu.
Despite the unknown Coromon release date for mobile and Switch, we’re excitedly anticipating catching monsters, battling baddies, and exploring a new world of adventure. As well as all the things you might expect from a monster taming game, Coromon goes the extra mile to impress fans of the genre, including multiple difficulties, a randomiser tool to mix up gameplay, and even a Nuzlocke mode for those hardcore Coromon trainers.
If you want to whet your catch-’em-all appetite while waiting for Coromon, be sure to check out our guides to the most recent genre godfather with Pokémon Legends: Arceus mystery gift codes, Pokémon Legends: Arceus evolution items, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus grit. Or, for another taming alternative, see our list of the best games like Pokémon on Switch.
If you’re not familiar with the aforementioned Nuzlocke mode, it’s a fan-made format for the Pokémon games intended to up the difficulty by only allowing one catch per area, all wild battles must be completed, and any monsters that lose in battle are out for the rest of the run. While Game Freak has never embraced this concept, it’s great to see the team behind Coromon run with it, and we’re sure the community will agree.
