Tencent announces partnership with The Pokemon Company for a new game

The massive publishing giant, Tencent, has announced that they've struck a deal with Nintendo's The Pokemon Company in order to develop a Pokemon game. In an official blog post, Tencent clarified that its subsidiary, TiMi Studio Group would be working on the project, though there was no explanation as to what platform this possible game would release on, or if it would be a spinoff. Considering TiMi previously worked on Call of Duty Mobile, it wouldn't be too farfetched to guess that this collaboration will lead to yet another mobile Pokemon spinoff. This wouldn't be the first time Tencent and Nintendo, or one of its studios, has teamed up; earlier this year, we saw Tencent agree to help Nintendo distribute the Nintendo Switch to the Chinese market.

I know it's not super likely, but considering the size of China's mobile market and weird offerings like the ique in the past - I am really hoping they release a more traditional Pokemon RPG

I don't really think mobile is a good platform for that, but I want something interesting and not another puzzle game

I already have four Pokemon games on my phone, soon five, no more please! =[
Hopefully Nintendo put the same guidelines on this game as they did with Dragalia Lost, or else this'll be a microtranzizzle mess.

Man people cry about benign shit but not the obvious stuff lol.
Tencent tends to be known as one of the absolute most pay to win mobile companies in existence. Their games are nothing but broken hopes and dreams snapping your spine over a gacha.


Though to be fair in recent years they seem to have shifted somewhat to making their games a bit more fair for consumers. I guess they realized you can milk a cow longer if you don't blow its brains out halfway through. Since they're such a massive company this tends to lead to high quality games. I dare say, i'm interested. A good pokemon mobile game would be nice. The rest are auto scroller shit or whatever that abomination pokemon go is.

Nintendo don't own Pokemon
And TenCent doesn't own Epic.

It's a technicality. They are too effectively intertwined that such distinctions don't matter.

If they were to ever release a real Pokemon game (one of the same quality as any of the mainline games) on a non-Nintendo platform, that would prove me wrong. But they won't.

Yeah, IIRC they only own about 10% of The Pokemon Company.
They literally do own Pokemon though. An excerpt from Wikipedia:

You will never see a pokemon game on a competitor's console without Nintendo's express permission, as they are the sole owners of the trademark, and a third owner of the copyright.
