The Pokemon Company today released its second official game for iOS called Camp Pokemon. Aimed at kids between 6 and 8 years of age, the title takes place on an immersive island filled with various mini games that teach players what it takes to become a Pokemon trainer.

Completing each of these activities will net players a pin, which they can view later in their Pin Book, allowing them to track their progress. They can also collect stickers, which can then be used to decorate photos taken with either iPhone or iPad cameras from within the game.

Admittedly, this game probably won’t have much appeal for users outside of the recommended age range, but it’s still nice to see The Pokemon Company devoting resources to iOS. If you’re interested, you can find Camp Pokemon for the iPhone and iPad in the App Store for free.

    Still no RPG

      Never going to happen.

      • jack

        why do you think?

      • Even though Pokemon is a separate brand, it’s still part of Nintendo and matter of fact part of the people who purchase Nintendo handheld and consoles do it solely to play Pokemon RPGs. Nintendo is not going to let “gaming” platforms like iOS or Android take away the money they make from selling both the consoles/handhelds and games.

        Nintendo being worth $16 billion, I feel like it wouldn’t take much effort from Apple to make it happen and if it did happen, it would be epic.

    Hahaha I actually searched for Pokemon in the App Store this morning and saw this app. I thought it was sad, low key.

  • Tyler Smith

    if I want it is it bad? lol

    I actually asked for a refund on my pokedex app. No reason to keep it around if they are not going to upgrade it (and yeah I checked and support to the app has been closed).

  • What idiot signed off on this rubbish? Nintendo / Pokemon know what we want and instead they give us this…

    • Wamid

      They give you this to remind you that pokemon games still exist and that you should buy a DS to play them

      • Reasons Why I Won’t Buy a DS:

        1. Poor Graphics
        2. I can’t justify buying one just to play a few games (mainly mario, pokemon and zelda).
        3. I already have my iPhone on me everywhere I go so I’d have to carry a DS too if I wanted to play game X whenever I wanted to. This is one more device to carry and a pain to do so…
        4. Other reasons I can’t think of right now…
