Nintendo and the Pokemon franchise have strong ties and it should come as no surprise that the folks at Nintendo are looking to create a Pokemon game for the new Switch console. In fact, the internet is buzzing with rumors and speculations about this collaboration, but we do advise Pokemon fans to not bet everything they have on these rumors since Nintendo has yet to confirm anything.
Nintendo Switch Pokemon Game Leak
The entire Nintendo Switch and Pokemon collaboration rumor started when Emily Rogers who is a video game industry insider stated that an RPG (role-playing-game) version of Pokemon is being made and that it will be unveiled to everyone at the end of May.
The video game insider also said that there will be two versions of the game and this leads us to believe that there is some truth to her statements since nearly all Pokemon games have been released in two versions.
The Two Pokemon Editions
Emily Rogers says that the first game is going to be called “Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu Edition” and the second one will be titled “Let’s Go Eevee Edition”. Things get even better than this since there are many rumors which point towards a Pokemon Yellow remake.
4Chan Leaked Logo
The only “real” proof that Emily Rogers has is a recently leaked picture that appeared on 4Chan. A picture of Pikachu and Eevee was leaked on the image board website and the interesting thing about it is that it seems to be drawn by hand. This means that the leaked picture might not be the final version and just some concept art for what’s to come in the future.
Linked with Pokemon Go
As if receiving two RPG-style Pokemon games for Nintendo Switch wasn’t amazing enough, rumor has it that these two games will be directly linked to the highly popular mobile Pokemon Go game. All that we can do right now is wait for May to come to an end and see if Nintendo does release any information about these upcoming games.
