    Is it weird that the first thing I thought of was that we're gonna have another Platinum situation with the acronyms? You know, when two games within the "set" start with the same letter and force us to use the second one - DPPl and now SMSt. At least people will hopefully stop using SuMo in fear of SM being "misunderstood". As if Sun and Moon wasn't a perfect chance to actually change what "SM" means for most people.

    Anyway, Stars. Sounds like Sun and Moon are getting an HD remake. That was fast. Sinnoh eat your heart out.

    I wouldn't be surprised, if this was true. Doesn't seem like enough time for a fully new Pokemon game to come to the Switch, but I would be surprise if a mainline Pokemon doesn't end up on it in the first year.

    A lot of people were asking for Eclipse for the name. Stars is good too, but if it is truly just a code name, I wonder what they are going to call it.

    The most I hope for is, easy trading between S/M and Stars.

    Now it will be called SMS, if it's true, so no pokepr0n. I hope it is, and I also hope homebrew will be easy on the switch, so I can import my pk*s, because I'm banned, and don't want to pay for Bank anymore, unless I get unbanned, which I deem almost impossible. But were there also new Pokémon announced by the leaker?

    As if there wasn't enough reason to buy a Switch already.

    If this is legit I hope there's no backwards compatibility and they revamp the whole system. It's an outdated system only used to keep people happy

    I thought this was just a rumor. You really should mark the title as much to not spread false hope.

    I hope in pokemon stars we can go to Sinnoh post games After all the Sinnoh references in the game it would make sense.

    True but Kanto doesn't mean as much to me as Sinnoh and the Kanto ones were probably just because the player moved there from kanto.
