Pokémon for the Nintendo Switch rumors are heating up, as more information on the highly anticipated game have started to circulate online.
Without an official announcement from Nintendo, Pokémon fans are advised to take the rumors with a pinch of salt. However, if one of the rumors is to be believed, the wait for the new Pokémon game might not be too long.
Pokémon Nintendo Switch Leaks
Video game industry insider Emily Rogers recently said that the Pokémon RPG for the Nintendo Switch will be revealed before the end of the month. She added that there will be two versions of the game, similar to how most main entries in the franchise are rolled out.
The names of the games are rumored to be Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu Edition and Pokémon: Let's Go Eevee Edition, and will be Pokémon Yellow remakes. The starter Pokémon for each edition is listed in their titles, and the games are said to be set in the Kanto region. Ash, however, will not be the main character, with players to take on the role of a new protagonist.
A logo posted on the 4chan forums is believed to be the one for the Pikachu Edition. The logo carries a trademark symbol, but no filing has been found. In addition, it looks drawn by hand, which may mean that it is not the final version, if it is indeed real.
Another rumor regarding the upcoming Pokémon games for the Nintendo Switch is that they will be somehow connected to the mobile game Pokémon GO. It is said that the new Pokémon titles will feature a capture system similar to Pokémon GO, along with an accessory that will establish a direct link between the two games.
Pokémon Nintendo Switch Release Date
The rumored announcement date of this month may be too good to be true, but fans are hoping that it is real so that they can finally know more about the Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch.
The Pokémon for Nintendo Switch release date is also rumored to be within the year, which is another fact that fans are hoping to soon confirm.
There have been many other Pokémon for Nintendo Switch rumors, including some that coincide with the latest leaks. If the way of catching Pokémon will follow the system in Pokémon GO, it works with rumors that the game will also change how the combat system works, particularly making it simpler like in Digimon World titles. A separate report, meanwhile, hinted that the Pokémon for Nintendo Switch release date will be in time for this year's holiday season.
Some rumors, however, contradict the recent leaks. If the game is going back to the Kanto region and will feature classics such as Pikachu and Eevee, then the previous report that Pokémon for Nintendo Switch will introduce new eighth-generation Pokémon is false.
