'Pokemon' game for Nintendo Switch rumored to be announed soon

Pokemon Switch To Be Revealed This Month, Will Launch In 2018

Emily: Pokemon RPG For Nintendo Switch To Be Revealed This Month, Released In 2018

While this shouldn't be taken as official confirmation that the Pokemon Let's Go rumors are true, this certainly tosses more fuel on an already raging fire.

Nintendo still hasn't said much at all about its new Pokemon game for the Switch, but a bunch of rumours doing the rounds have suggested it'll revolve around electric-powered-mouse-thing Pikachu and the feline-like Eevee.

The day after the rumors started, CSC, who registers domains on behalf of Nintendo, picked up pokemonletsgoeevee and pokemonletsgopikachu.

There's reason to think that might be the case, so let's go over the latest rumors and see why it could actually be happening. Just the inclusion of the word "Go" in those potential titles hints strongly at a link to Pokemon GO.

Emily Blunt also protested this rule and spoke out against it saying that everyone should wear flats and shouldn't wear heels. Kristen Stewart attended the screening of the film "Black all kinds of things over" by spike Lee.

This all leads to a much bigger question: What lessons should Game Freak and Nintendo learn from Pokémon Go's success? It seems to stem from a 4chan post from April 1st, and has picked up steam recently thanks to a Twitter post from Game Freak's Junichi Masuda, which included plush dolls of Pikachu and Eevee. Players can have their Pokemon follow them around, as they did in Pokemon Yellow, and the game will also have some sort of connectivity with Pokemon Go, with rewards for linking up accounts and possibly a new peripheral device (like the PokeWalker or Pokemon Go Plus) that ties into both games.

Pokemon on Switch has yet to attract a release date.

Joe Merrick of the Pokemon news site Serebii.net was the first to report the news. Naturally then, people have been speculating when the "Pokemon Go" style game will come to the Nintendo Switch. And with E3 right around the corner in June, we should know for sure before Pokemon GO turns two later this summer.
