    Continuing on the partnership with Nintendo established in 2015, DeNA will be working with The Pokemon Company to release a smartphone game. This was revealed in DeNA's fiscal year results, showcasing success for existing mobile games using Nintendo IPs, and projections for the future. Details are slim, but the briefing tells us that the app will be a "new and exciting" game based on Pokemon, with more set to be revealed later this year, and a release slated for before the end of this new fiscal year. So far, the partnership between both companies has resulted in successful titles such as Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and the upcoming Mario Kart Tour.

    Meh, people know better than to expect a lot from a smartphone game. Especially since there are like four Pokemon games on smartphones already.

    Just let it get released (or at least get a trailer) first before laying down the hate.

    Obviously we can't expect it to be on par with mainline games, but to be fair, I think Pokemon Duel is a pretty fun game by smartphone standards. So it is possible to do a good spin-off games in other genres.

    It's not that it's a mobile Pokemon game. It's that it's made by DeNA. Their games aren't necessarily awful, but they are pretty bad. All they have going for them is graphics, most of which are ripped directly from nintendo's own titles.

    Touchscreen Puzzle Challenge port? Why not, especially given how playable the DSiware was?
    (Because it will likely be bloated and gratuitously depend on gApps, of course)

    Pokemon Abomination - Use your smartphone to alter the DeNA of your Pokemon and create new, and exciting horrors upon the work of God. Then release them into the wild!
