Is there any form of cross-play with X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire?

Thanks in advance!

    haha you can't even trade or battle wild pokemon in pokemon Go, it's nothing like the actual games. – Aequitas Aug 25 '16 at 5:39
  • Nothing official has been announced but I remember reading something somewhere where Masuda said he'd like to get the games working together. – Pyritie Aug 25 '16 at 10:42

As far as I'm concerned, there are no plans for the future of cross-play, at least not something they announced.

There are, on the other hand, some declarations that were made from Nintendo that "they would like to add cross-play with Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon" but I assume they will decide to do it or not depending on the amount of people playing when the summer is over.

If I find the original interview where they said it, I will edit the answer to add some links.

EDIT: It seems that the team responsible for this project said in the E3 that they had the plans to tie-in both the new gen games and Pokémon GO:

"While explaining the uses of the GO+, the team also revealed that Pokemon GO and the GO+ will eventually tie-in to Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. There was no explanation about how this will work at this point in time."

I still think that it will depend on the player base at the end of the summer, but we will see eventually.


  • Pokemon GO is solid. – wogsland Feb 12 '17 at 4:46

There have been no announcements even hinting at this as a possibility, but other factors make this seem highly unlikely.

  • The underlying mechanics regarding stats and possible moves are completely different and would be difficult to translate from PoGo to the main series or vice versa.

  • Pokemon Go is made by a different company than the main series installments.


Short Answer: There isn't so far.

What Niantic is going to implement is speculation, but they might bring the Pokémon like in series: So far Gen 1 (1-151), then Gen 2 (152-251), but there is no official statement about this.

    It's hard to know what they'll implement when their changes typically involve un-implementing features... – Vemonus Aug 25 '16 at 5:20

    I don't understand how this is an answer to the question from the OP about cross-play. – A.L Aug 25 '16 at 12:37
