Is there any known Pokemon game with NFTs?
That The Pokémon Company takes this type of technology into account does not mean confirmation that they are developing an NFT project, so we will have to wait to find out their plans in this regard. At the moment, they have not announced anything officially, although non-fungible tokens are collectibles that fit with the philosophy of “Get them all” from the Pokémon saga.
The most recent installment of the brand for Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Scarlet and Purple, will be expanded soon with an expansion pass. Players will be able to access more creatures and enjoy new adventures in the Paldea region. The hidden treasure of Area Zero will be divided into two different installments, scheduled for autumn and winter respectively, The Turquoise Mask and The Indigo Disc.
