The Pokemon Company has previously partnered with NetEase to bring Pokemon Quest to mobile devices in China.
Tencent meanwhile signed a deal with Nintendo to launch its Switch console in the country. The hardware isn’t expected to launch before the end of March 2020, however.
Whilst The Pokemon Company has largely focused on Nintendo-owned platforms in the past, it’s increasingly targeting the mobile platform. Earlier this year it unveiled Pokemon Masters, a title developed in partnership with DeNA, set for release this summer.
