The tenth generation of Pokémon games is the tenth installment of the Pokémon video game series starting with Pokémon Topaz and Amethyst, continuing with the Pokémon Topaz Dream Expansion and the Amethyst Dream Expansion, Pokémon Black 3 and White 3, Pokémon Infernal Black and Eternal White, and concluding with Pokémon Legends: The Darkest Day. Unlike previous generations, the core series games of the tenth generation were released on two different platforms simultaneously: the Nintendo Switch 1 and the Xbox Series X|S. However, Topaz and Amethyst was initially going to be exclusive for the the former, until they were eventually revealed to be released for both that console and the latter, as Nintendo joined Microsoft Gaming on September 29th, 2025. This makes the tenth generation is the last generation released on a Nintendo platform and the first one on an Xbox platform; this is the only generation, however, to be released for the Switch 1, as well as the only generation to be released for the Xbox Series X|S.
