    They could also go with Pokemon Park Tycoon, where they recover prehistoric Pokemon DeNA from amber, and a killer breed of Pikachu ends up eating most the visitors.

    nope
    I mean, if it's a paid game, it'll likely be on-par with a "main-line" game. Hopefully better than the copy-pastes in the play / apple store.

    Mario Kart hasn't been released yet, but ACPC and FEH are both really great games. If This new Poke game is anything like those, I think it will be just fine!

    This would be very cool, but I'm not sure it'd be the same without Chunsoft involvement (unless, of course, they would be involved). The wording specifying it as an "exciting new game" doesn't really give me the vibes that it's going to be a new entry in any existing spinoff series, though.

    What's with all the negativity? Always look for the bright side in things people, instead of hating on something that hasn't even beem released.

    "Paid game" when it comes to smartphones usually means $2 - $3, not $60. Super Mario Run was a paid game, after all, but I doubt you believe it's on par with Super Mario Odyssey.

    nope
    For a super mario game, it's not bad at all. I enjoyed it for the (9.99 it cost?) price and it includes more than just the mainstream game too. There are plenty of paid games that went mobile (final fantasy to name 1) that turned out very well.

    Oh I'm not disputing that there are good games and time-wasters on smartphones, but they aren't good by console/PC game standards. I'm actually playing one of those town management games on Steam right now that's clearly aimed more at smartphones, and dear god is it ever painfully boring/overly passive.

    DeNA? Mobile?

    wasn't DeNA one of the first partners next to Spike Chunsoft who said they were onboard with developing for the Nintendo NX (Switch?)

    DeNA and Nintendo have had a mobile game/app development partnership for a few years now. Press release: https://dena.com/intl/press/002242

    There's what, about 5 or 6 mobile pokemon games now? they're all pretty fun in their own way. Hopefully this one is fun as well. I wouldn't mind another music video like we got for magikarp jump.

    It'd be something suitable for mobile phone (which can be anything - LOL). Very sure it'd be knee deep in micro-transactions - free 2 play app, not a mere 1 time pay overpriced full app. I bet it'd be like their "Final Fantasy Record Keeper" app, a story driven - gacha - tactical turn base game.

    Pocket Monsters from Nutaku. ( not in the Play Store and is only for Android. it has a PC version, and is cross-play with Android. but the PC download version is buggy and not everything works proper. )

    Hope not. The Super Mario Run model is the way to go. Pay once, get everything. No annoyance, doesn't feel like a cheap cash grab.

    Super Mario Run was released under the Nintendo publisher name in the app store. DeNA's most recent game released to the app store is 'Attack on Titan Tactics' - which is somewhat similar to their previous release 'Final Fantasy Record Keeper' ;
    For a game developer, a genre like the above gives a much bigger chance for constantly making money than a one time pay game. As a potential user, I'm like everyone else, am not keen on them going in this direction and would prefer them making the RPG version, but it makes sense if I were in their shoes.

    All of the games stemming from the DeNA + Nintendo partnership are published by Nintendo. The list is in OP.

    Ah yes, thanks for pointing it out, I didn't see that. But I noticed something from that source. Fire Emblem Heroes, that's a turn base game they developed as well - which is a huge hit with over 5 million downloads. Followed by their Final Fantasy Record Keeper with over 1 million downloads. Their less than a month old Attack on Titan Tactics has accumulated around 100.000 downloads so far in Japan. I know they develop various other genres, some are even side scrolling, but those aren't as popular at least none that has caught my attention.
