“Core” Pokemon RPG from Game Freak is coming to the Switch in 2018 (or later)

The Pokemon Company’s CEO, Tsunekazu Ishihara, confirmed that Game Freak was hard at work on a new Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch all the way back in September. Today, the executive further revealed that the untitled game will be a “Core RPG Pokemon Title.”

Previously, “Core” Pokemon titles (such as 2010’s Pokemon Black and White or last year’s Pokemon Sun and Moon) were only made available for Nintendo’s handheld systems. But it looks like the optional portability of the Switch has finally swayed Game Freak over to Nintendo’s newest “home” console.

We don’t know when Game Freak’s “Core” Pokemon game will make its Switch debut (or if it’s the oft-rumored Pokemon Stars), but Ishihara did say that it’s at least a year away and won’t be available until 2018 at the earliest.
