    A pokemon game going to the switch does not make it a 3ds successor.

    Nope, Go ahead, try to replace a system with 2 screens and a stylus and 3d with one that is one screen, no stylus and HD, use motion controls, stubby single joycons as 2 separate controllers, better wifi and horrible battery life. :creep:

    Oh it did, the wii u game pad. :P

    Also, they made pokemon games for consoles... :ninja:

    They also said DS wouldn't be a replacement of GBA (just to cover their ass in case it ended up a commercial failure)
    They also said very clearly WiiU manufacturing would continue, but they changed idea next week

    Of course, what I will do most likely won't be what the average market will do

    Nintendo keeps saying no, but I think it is for sure. Switch will probably get revisions as time goes on as well...give it 2 years or so.

    Sad times, consoles get revisions each 2 years, and yet fanboys bitch about how you need to upgrade your PC every 6 months to stay relevant.

    To answer OP's question, no, it's not gonna replace the 3DS and WiiU, it's only replacing the WiiU.

    XD and Colosseum are spinoffs.

    GameFreak doesn't make the spinoffs games.

    To Nintendo "No" means yes and yes means it comes at a price for example:

    Nintendo said no the switch wouldn't replace the wiiu yet it's theit main console right now.
    Nintendo also said yes there would be voice chat support but the price is having to use a separate device to actually use.

    That wasn't my point, my point is pokemon games exist outside of portable games. Don't really care if gamefreak makes it or not, i don't play them anymore, and no one ever said switch was a successor to 3DS, is just a hybrid console (and direct response to wii u semi-failure)

    Hybrid console = Home console + Handheld console ( WiiU + 3DS)

    Then tell me, if this was intended to be replacement, why isn't this a 2 or more screen console? A successor is supposed to be better. But it only has one screen, not more. :creep:

    The 3DS is effectively supported until at least 2018, so not for now.

    Because it's a Hybrid console. You can't play on 2 TVs together in dock mode.

    I thought the Switch had good battery life? I remember playing Zelda for 4 hours...

    I don't think it will replace the 3DS. They've made it clear that the Switch is a home console with home console experiences. Plus, it's really big for a handheld.
    I think they're going to announce a new handheld at some point with a clamshell design. Maybe in 2018 or 2019.
    I voted yes since it's a yes for Wii U and a maybe for 3DS.
