Default Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield - Coming November 15th

UPDATE:



ORIGINAL POST:



Pokemon CEO: Next year’s game (second half 2019) will be brand new game. So not like an upgrade of LGP/LGE

Pokemon CEO: Let’s Go P/E are more focused on home gaming, but next year’s games will be more about handheld elements

An additional, "core RPG" Pokémon game, entirely separate from the just-announced Pokémon Let's Go! Pikachu and Eevee games, is also in development.

Details are very thin on the ground - the game is currently untitled - but we know that it will be "in the style of Pokémon X and Y and Sun and Moon", which we understand to mean traditional catching methods, and without the emphasis on Pokémon Go-style features and cross-functionality.

The games are slated for "the second half of 2019", according to Junichi Masuda, managing director of the mainline Pokémon RPG developer Game Freak.

The news comes amidst a swathe of announcements at the Pokémon press conference that was held in Tokyo, Japan earlier today, which Eurogamer attended.

Not really sure how LGP/E stands as more of a "home" game compared to the other games considering 90% of it can be completed by grabbing a phone and walking outside. Do they know what a home console is at Nintendo?

Speaking to Japanese publication Famitsu, which haas a massive 20 page feature on Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu, Let's Go Eevee and Quest, features an interview with The Pokémon Company CEO, Tsunekazu Ishihara who provided a few minor tidbits about the upcoming Pokémon game for Nintendo Switch due out in 2019. He reconfirmed that this game is due for release in the second half of 2019, will have better graphics than any prior Pokémon game, that it'll be completely new and not like Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee and states that it will contain many brand new Pokémon.

That last part was pretty obvious, given that every generation adds new Pokémon. I just hope it’s nothing stupid, because we already have keys, ice cream cone, sand castle, and sword. We don’t need any more stupid Pokémon.

Better prepare yourself for disappointment on that front then.

Pokémon CEO Says 2019 Switch RPG Will Be Something Longtime Fans Have Waited For


“The new title coming out in the second half of 2019 will be a completely different game [from Pokémon Let’s Go]. It is not an entry game, but a game that we want longtime fans of the Pokémon series to look forward to.”


“The game will give a good understanding of what an evolved Pokémon game looks like after it has continued to succeed the traditions of Game Freak.”


“We want to make Pokémon fans say ‘this is what I’ve been waiting for’ by delivering a brand-new product packed with gameplay elements and plenty of new Pokémon to encounter.”

Now refined to “late 2019.”

It was definitely going to be the end of 2019 always but multiple of the mainline games have come out earlier in the year.

I should hopefully be able to get through the other Pokemon games by then. I'm playing Pokemon Yellow for the first time right now. I have Red from back when it first came out but never played any of the other games in the series after that for some reason (other than some side games like Detective Pikachu and Super Mystery Dungeon).

Digitally I have Red, Yellow, and Crystal (picked Yellow and Crystal up from Best Buy when they were just on sale). Physically I have Pokemon X (never got around to playing it) and Pokemon Ultra Moon (just picked up thanks to the Best Buy $10 off offer)

Obviously I have other games to pick up. Anyone have any suggestions for which version of the games to pick? (OR/AS, B/W, etc)

Do you think “Let’s Go” is a one-off, or do you think it’s the beginning of a new series of Pokémon games? How many more games do you think will get the Pokémon GO treatment?

I didn't care when it comes out as I don't play them. I'm merely posting the update for those that do. If all of the fans feel this is a travesty and was well known info then by all means they can ask a mod to take it down.

Also, please reply with the eye roll emote. I love when you do that.

I guess if it makes money then why not.

Maybe all remakes from now on will be GO titles.

I will have to wait and see what it plays like before deciding if I like the idea of it or not.

Would GO work in its own world? Or would GO work better as a way of re exploring old regions with new and expanded locations and stories?

It would certainly be a good way to push remakes, plus they can rely on the junior team to make them whilst the senior team focus on mainline games.

I guess this is also relevant here,

I can't remember if I posted here or era but I guessed the new Pokemon would end up being leaked early if it was linked to Go. And funnily enough this strange new Pokemon has been discovered in the depths of Pokemon GO data.

I'll spoiler tag it in case anyone wants to wait for the official reveal, but there's a possibility this could be nothing but right now it's looking to be our first look at a gen VIII Pokemon.

[Show spoiler]
