Is there any meaningful information about this game? I looked recently and found nothing much.

Anyone got an uncle working at Nintendo? Mr. Green

Assuming there's nothing concrete to go on, care to take any guesses on how this Pokémon RPG might differ from the tried-and-true formula, if very much at all? Think it'll still be top-down, for instance? Do you want it to be?

Part of me wants it to be a huge leap in a new direction, and part of me wants familiar old top-down Pokémon.

Gen VII is little over a year old. There isn't any solid information, other than that the Switch game will be Gen VIII of the main series and -should- be released next year. Sun/Moon with nicer graphics would be fine with me. People keep blabbing about a Pokémon MMORPG, but these are generally people who no longer play Pokémon and don't realsie what makes the series good. i can already battle and chat to strangers on the 3DS versions.

By the way, Pokémon dropped "top-down" a couple of generations ago.

*Looks up Pokémon Sun/Moon footage*

Wow I'm so out of date on Pokémon.

Sweet!

Also, making it an MMO sounds unlikely and also a guaranteed way to stop me from playing it!

Play Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon!
By the way, despite not wanting to play MMOs, I think you'll still like FFXIV (considering that you like XII). There are a lot of causal and fast levelling ways for beginners to catch up now. Somebody I invtoduced in November hasn't played much and is now more or less at the point I was when I introduced her to he game (been playing since 2014).

I have very little doubt I'd enjoy FFXIV. Not playing MMOs has nothing to do with thinking they're bad.

I cannot play recent Pokémons because I don't have a 3DS. Doubt I'll get one at this point, even though they're surely pretty cheap now. I just don't play games enough lately to warrant it.

I could play any of my video games at work if I wanted to. But again... not a good plan.

Given that I've only played two of the main Pokémon games, completed neither of them, and had no idea how the series had progressed in the past decade, it might be a stretch to call myself a big fan. But I did really enjoy what I played of those two games. Mr. Green

I would love a new Pokemon Snap game on the Switch. You could use the thing in portable mode just like a camera. It's PERFECT.

I've never played a Pokemon game. Maybe the Switch entry will be a good place to starts.

If they made some sort of Pokemon MMO where you can actually run around a hi def sandbox world catching Pokemon and battling people I would shit a brick.

If they ever did that, I hope it's just be one mode/option in the game (like an expanded version of Ferstival Plaza in Sun/Moon). Pokémon is much more than that.

There’s some rumours that there will be info quite soon:

https://nintendoeverything.com/rumor-pokemon-switch-reveal-happening-soon-unconfirmed-details/

I hope that if it is indeed connected with Pokémon Go, it’s not in any major/madatory way, cause that game seems pretty shite to me!

That’d be a confusing and bad move, if this was to be a proper main series Pokémon game.

Pokemon Switch? More like Pokemon Ditch.

I really hope the supposed leaks aren't true, or if they are, they're relating to a spinoff. I want a proper new generation Pokémon game, not some free to play Gen I nostalgia fest

Some Pokémon domain registrations were made through the same channels that were used to resister Suna me Moon (how those reveals were leaked). Pokémon Let's Go! Pikachu and Pokémon Let's Go! Eevee...
Very much hoping that if they’re real, they’re not main series titles (or at least remakes of Gen I).
Pokémon GO style gameplay and catching mechanics are being batted around. Hopefully won’t be as bad as it sounds.
Hoping this is a Kanto remake to bridge the gap between a real Gen VIII.

I'll 100% get it on launch day, but I'm glad it's not instead of a proper Gen VIII with a new region, new Pokémon and no gimmicky control methods.
