In 2007, when Nintendo Power announced that they would no longer be publishing strategy guides, they appointed Prima Games as the officially endorsed publisher of licensed strategy guides. In 2015, with the merger of parent companies Penguin and Random House, competitor BradyGames was merged into Prima Games.

In March 2019, after being acquired by Asteri Holdings, Prima announced that they would exclusively publish online and cease publishing physical books.[1] The last Pokémon guidebook that Prima Games is credited for publishing is Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield: The Official Galar Region Pokédex. On January 3, 2022, GAMURS Group announced its acquisition of Prima Games.[2]
