After cheekily teasing a Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remake, it looks like Nintendo might just be preparing fans for a new Pokemon game. The company recently emailed Nintendo Switch owners a survey that seemed like your typical game publisher-related questionnaire - What game did you buy the Switch for? What PS4/XB1 games do you play? - which is what most of us expect. However, by the end, the questions started concentrating on Pokemon, which is pretty exciting.
The company asks if you’ve played any of the mainline Pokemon games, their spin-offs, and even the popular mobile app Pokemon GO. Oddly enough, finishing the survey just brings you to the Nintendo website, which most people only go to so that they can buy eShop games. Still, it looks like we’re getting something Pokemon-related soon and I can’t wait.
Many fans really want Diamond and Pearl remakes since they are chronologically next, with Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on the 3DS being the most recent ones. Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee don’t really count, though they are technically remakes of Yellow version. Whatever happens, we’re sure a lot of fans and stans are going to be happy about a future Pokemon announcement.
You know, unless they announce that the National Pokedex won’t be a thing. That causes internet witch hunts for some reason.
Pokemon Sword and Shield are the most recent games in the series and are now available on the Nintendo Switch. Both games are also getting an expansion pass this June that adds new Wild Areas to explore, trainers to beat, and Pokemon to catch.
