    My bad, my English isn't that good, I thought reportedly meant that it was an actual report, so verified and all :(

    Well, at this point it's all but confirmed... But until we get official word, it's best to treat it like a rumor.

    Pokemon game with the (optimized) Zelda engine. Just think of the posibilitied, I would instant buy that and they can easily build on it by making DLC that includes new areas. Could also have an online zone / area to play vs others, hell have a pokemon tournament :).

    Hm... If not Pokémon, I can definitely say that they could be creating a new IP that's in the RPH genre. If so, I would be glad about it. Even if it isn't Pokémon.

    Would be about time. Would also sell more Switches than Wiis.

    I know I'm one of the very few ppl that absolutely hate pokemon as a whole. That being said, you can't deny that a legit pokemon rpg developed exclusively for switch will be a guaranteed system seller. Especially during the holiday season. As much as I cringe at the announcement, this is one step further in making the switch a success.

    Considering the atrocious performance of 3DS Pokémon games, they really need to hire new people.

    Meh, games are being developed all the time and just because a developer hires, doesn't mean it's anything to go crazy about. Case in point, Retro Studios were hiring since years and yet still no new gaems.

    Well, a Pokemon game on Switch was already pretty much a given...this just feeds into that assumption more. Retro might also have been hiring in preparation for Switch, not because they were working on something at that very moment.

    It's also not a Nintendo game, it only uses the Pokemon license. Big difference.

    I support the idea, it's just to me what comes to mind is the amount of grass you walk through to find pokemon would make for a pretty laggy experience, considering the reports on Zelda.

    Jokes aside, I'm sure an Rpg would mean a mainline pokemon game, also since those are the ones that are globally popular. Conquest, Mystery Dungeon etc., wouldn't live up to "globally popular". Then again I don't have any sales numbers to back up my opinion.

    However, if I remember correctly, Game Freak usually publish random pokemon minigames on a console before they release the big games, which would imply a crappy game coming out first.

    Pokken Tournament is sadly out of the question...

    Future Games:

    Pokemon Stars/Sun & Moon 2
    Pokemon 8th gen games (Plus and Minus)
    Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes (Spirit Diamond and Phantom Pearl)

    I really think D/P/Pl remakes could work. They could make them better than the originals. This seems to be a pattern with all remakes

    FR/LG = Better than R/B/Y
    HG/SS = Not as good as G/S/C
    OR/AS = Better than R/S/E

    So at worst, D/P remakes could not be as good as the originals but I think they might be better since the 4th generation was one of the weakest gens, along with gen 5.

    Still weird that we didn't get Pokemon Z/X2&Y2 on the 3DS/N3DS. That's probably why we got Sun and Moon, instead.

    The last time there was a news post like this it was for Grezzo. That job listing was very obviously for Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, which was released nearly a year later, iirc.
