For the past 25 years, the Pokémon franchise has offered a series of unique derivatives, but Pokémon smile could be one of the most unusual. Launched in June 2020, the game for mobile devices encourages younger players to rescue Pokémon from bacteria brushing their teeth. Since the launch, there has been no additional content, but that recently changed when The Pokémon Company released a surprise update for the game. The update adds new features, while expanding the Pokémon available to trap. Originally, the game only offered Pokémon that debuted in the Kant region, but the new update adds four Pokémon of subsequent regions: Single, Defense, MIME Jr. and Ludicrous.
The information on the update was shared online by Serbia.net. While the four new Pokémon added to the game may seem unusual elections, the Webmaster of Serbia Joe Merrick points out that these four (next to Pikachu and Levee) are the pets of the Mongoose product line currently available in Japan. The merchandise is aimed at young children and offers adorable bibs, clothes, stuffers, tableware, chairs and much more. At this time, none of these products is currently offered in North America, but it is expected that Pokémon fanatics with young children (or children on their way) have the opportunity to pick them up. Readers can find more information about the line right here.
Given the fact that Pokémon smile and Monroe are aimed at the youngest fanatics of Pokémon, these new additions of Pokémon make a lot of sense! The designs used for Pokémon smile also resemble those used in the new merchandise, so the connection works well.
It will be interesting to see if this update leads to more for Pokémon smile, or if this is only once for the game. More than a year between updates is a lot of waiting time, but there are more than 700 Pokémon missing in the mobile title. That could keep the children busy brushing for a long time!
