"Pokemon quest" is a story game where players who came to a small island called Kakkoro Island explore islands with square-changing Pokemon.
The whole image of the island looks like this. At first it starts from the yellow green stage on the bottom left. If the stage is different for each color, it will be all 11 stages.
When playing with the controller, a finger-type cursor appearing in the red frame below is displayed. It is better to hold the Nintendo Switch by hand and touch the screen rather than playing by moving the cursor with the stick.

Then I started cooking. However, "0/2" is displayed on the top of the pot. This is "the number of expeditions that must be cleared before the dish is completed", and if you explore twice, the dish will be completed.

The flow of play of Pokemon quest is like this, the impression that it is an operation method and UI that you can see well that it was developed for smartphones. Honestly there are no complicated operations or actions, so it seems a bit insufficient for playing with the Nintendo Switch, but since the crowded Pokemon who runs around Tekketek running in the screen is cute, play it once for free Ali is enough to see.
