As you already know, NetEase and The Pokemon Company have announced a partnership to launch Pokemon Quest in mainland China.
It seems that the smartphone launch in mainland China is going to get extra features that aren’t currently available in Pokemon Quest. The first new feature is a PvP (Player versus Player) system, allowing players to compete against each other. Next are new “social features” which we assume will somehow tie in to popular Chinese social media apps Weibo and WeChat.
It is currently unclear whether these features will make it outside China, or they are exclusive to the NetEase version. If so, it’ll be a huge waste.
