    The makers of Pokemon have been pumping out advertisements to build a new team for the development of a new console game described as a, "Globally popular RPG."

    The Pokemon company has already said it would be making games for the New Nintendo Switch, and many speculate their first game could be coming by the end of this year.

    The third entry for Sun and Moon exclusively on Switch perhaps? Or something different entirely?

    The year just got more interesting for Switch owners.

    Oh damn, they were serious about developing on Switch. Although they don't specifically say what it is (PKMN Conquest 2, Mystery Dungeon, Awwww Snap 2?!?), I hope there's more info by summer.

    If it's a Pokemon game, that's gonna help with sales big time.

    Pokemon would be great if they do it right.
    I love pokemon stadium on the 64 but it lack the normal pokemon.
    Also pokemon needs to be more active.

    But we will see what comes. I doubt it will be this year.There is already mario later in the year and they would need some time to build and test the game

    I think Nintendo would be idiotic to not make a full Pokemon game for it, not Stadium or some half hearted version but a FULL pokemon game like Sun and Moon.

    That would likely drive sales of hardware and software.

    There's no real indication that it will be an MMO, it just says "globally popular", which is almost always the case when it comes to Pokémon.

    Lol ps vita models ? Looks to me they're cheaping out on development and not gonna take advantage of the hardware the switch is offering.

    They would never bring Sun and Moon to the Switch. Never.

    Let's not forget that Gamefreak has been behind a few other great titles. Tembo the Badass Elephant, Drill Dozer, and HarmoKnight. That said...

    I'd love to see a sequel or game in the same vein as Pokemon XD.

    Nah... If there are more 3rd party supporting for Nintendo Switch then they are definitely serious about developing on Switch. However, this company is a first party and of course, it is a serious about developing on Switch which I do not care about the "first and second party supporting". I rather to see 3rd party supporting seriously about developing on Switch which we are waiting for after E3 this summer. :)

    it would be smart to develope an open world pokemon game for the switch as that would defintely boost the Switch sales.
    one of my close friend told me that he would only consider buying a switch if it gets a Pokemon game (preferably an open world type of Pokemon).

    i'm no big pokemon fan , but it'd defintely be nice to have an open world type of pokemon game for the switch just for the sake of more games coming for the console xD

    lol pokemon dungeon or snap lol.


    Yea i really do hope for a good pokemon game. Something better then the same old stuff we gotten on the ds.
    The gba days where cool but as time went on i felt that each one wasnt much of an update.

    Hell yea an open world pokemon like how zelda is open up. That would be great.
    Lots of tall grass, water, hot places, underground places.
    Online battling at poke centers. It would be great.

    But i bet we will just see a HD port of sun/moon knowing them
