In the wake of yesterday’s trailers for both Pokémon Scarlet & Pokémon Violet, I couldn’t help but fall down the same rabbit hole I revisit anytime a new Pokémon game starts gaining traction: what are the best alternatives available? We’re currently in between new Pokémon games at the moment and for any die-hard finds out there who have either played their way through the most recent release: Pokémon Legends: Arceus, have burned through the replayability of New Pokémon Snap, or (alike myself) are growing a bit frustrated of repetitively failing ‘Nuzlocke’ attempts – boy do I have a treat for…
