    Though it technically is a MMO, it's not in the traditional sense, because it's based around doing things offline in order to progress in the game. In a way it's the very opposite of a traditional MMO.
    I would love a real Pokemon MMO though.
    Hell yeah, that would be awesome. I loved that game.
    Though it wasn't made by Game Freak...

    Not sure if it already has compatibility with come things, but if it's indeed a new proper pokemon rpg, I would think 3ds connectivity would pretty much be a requirement. Not that it's an absolute necessity, but players will definitely want to import/export pokemon with their other games. May be as simple as making pokemon bank run on switch. Kind of interesting dilemma, since it is guaranteed that at least the hardcore/obsessed players will want to be able to do this.

    Not sure if it's been said already, but how would a modern (DS or later) main story Pokémon game work with only one screen? Or would they perhaps go back to the GBA days with a regular overlay?

    I can imagine options on the sides of the screen, utilising the touch like in the ds/3ds games for battles and such.

    "Globally popular RPG" means Pokemon.

    The second screen is not needed. Pokemon has been play on the single screen for a while.
    It would just have an overlay box somewhere at the bottom or top.
    Same as jrpg.
    I truly hope they add in time to the game.
    I love that about ff7 you could only attack when your bar fill up and ot was possible to attack someone twice if the move they used last made there bar go slow.

    considering the talk of compatibility with gamecube games, I'd assume it's a gale of darkness spin off with impoved graphics and such. Never was a fan of dp I like to hate my rivals, but it's hard if they have an attention disorder.

    I don't get where people are getting the MMORPG from in the comments? Nothing in the source information even suggested it.

    I think it all comes from a comment I marked very well with /s in the end.
    Anyway, it would be great.

    Game Freak doesn't make any of those Pokemon games. In fact the only Pokemon titles Game Freak makes are the core Pokemon games. There isn't a doubt about it, this is for a core Pokemon game on the Switch. I assume it will indeed be the third version of Sun and Moon, but I hope they don't name it Stars, a name like Eclipse would be so much better in my opinion.

    Pokemon MMO The Digimon Invasion, Clash of the Duel Masters featuring Yugioh and The Gobots.

    lol No matter what they do, I really enjoy the GameFreak games, in spite of my hatred of Pokemon, I do like the games.... That is saying something, high quality will prevail in the end.

    they can't name it stars because it'd only fit the sun version as the moon is a planet!

    afaik all core pokemon games are openworld

    If they are sure about what they always say, it won't ever be a MMO (or at least not a online-only one) since they've already stated how important is for them the portable side.


    Welp if I'm not wrong they say in the advert that this people have to stay in Japan until 2018. Maybe I missunderstood, but doesn't this mean that they have a project and they'll need this people until theyr job is done?

    Earth, bro-dude.
    The problem is, there isn't enough information given. That leads me to believe it might not be what 75% of people are hoping for. Just saying, 'A globally popular RPG', could mean, 'We're basing it off Pokémon, a globally popular RPG, but you're getting Bubble-Bobble (which could actually work) or, Pikachu's Crossbow Training.

    I distinctly remember that one time they teased a 3-D Combusken, leading people to believe there was going to be a Wii U 3-D adventure, but we got Pokkén.

    Maybe there are clues in S/M, like X/Y teasing the next region with 'Strange Souvenir' from the traveler? Look how long the Rainbow Coin from DK64 went unnoticed.

    Maybe an open world Pokemon Title, like Zelda?
    And no all pokemon titles are not open world

    yes that what you stated sounds too good to be true though xD
    but heck even a port of Sun Moon HD would sell like pancakes and boost the switch sales, but that is just me thinking.
