A core Pokemon game is finally on a Home console for the very first time ever. Pokemon RPG is in development for the Switch. More news on it on later date. Tsunekazu Ishihara from the Pokemon company announces the Pokemon RPG for Switch at 9:24 into the spotlight video.
Did everybody else miss the announcement. Surprised nobody was reporting on it initially.

@Kuhang Because 1) It was a given they'd develop a Pokemon for Switch at some point. And 2) there's no release date, no footage, nothing to talk about.

@Octane 1) At some point could be 5 years from now, and when that some point happens to be now. Big deal. It's Pokemon. NO ONE expected a core Pokemon game announcement this E3. I doubt you did. And 2) Yeah I loved watching the Metroid Prime 4 gameplay in 4K. In your defence I'll say Atleast they showed a logo. LOL

Awh, it's ok. Sometimes I just think of @Octane as Captain Saltypants, and it brings a smile to my face. It's his job to provide a negative to every possible positive. Don't hold it against him.

@Kuhang I'm not saying the Metroid reveal was great either. No footage and that game is probably miles away. It won't come out before the Switch Pokemon game, that's for sure.

5 years? Let's be honest. Pokemon is pretty much an annual franchise at this point, so I would've expected a Pokemon game for the Switch either next year or the year after. They're definitely not going to take a break from the franchise. I certainly didn't expect they'd announce it, because the new 3DS games aren't even out and an announcement without a trailer is a pointless announcement anyway. So indeed, I didn't expect them to bother with this at all

@rallydefault C'mon, an announcement without a trailer? That's just pointless. I don't care if Sony's doing it, or Microsoft or Nintendo, or whatever other company. If you don't have anything to show, don't announce it. If that's being salty, then I gladly be Mr. Saltypants for the rest of my life.

Watch it be a Red and Blue Remake, while the next Neo New DS gets the next gen.

Edit: Personally I'm okay with them simply saying its a thing. I understand why people would prefer them just holding off until its shown, but at this point I'm okay with them just saying it happening.

@Octane
lol it's all good. We'll just have to disagree, though - I find it very meaningful to confirm something like that. They just secured themselves A LOT of future Switch buyers by making Pokemon and Prime official. Go check the forums <shudder> on the major sites. Look at all the people now (begrudgingly) admitting they'll pick up a Switch at some point due to those confirmations.

Yeah, it does suck that there's no infomation to talk about, but it's nice to know that there will be a main Pokemon game on the Switch. That could be really big for the Switch.

What would everyone like to see in a Pokemon home console game?

For me, it would be to see them offer a non-linear and open world exploration. Imagine if it was like BotW and you could literally go anywhere you wanted and it was up to you to discover Pokemon nests, hidden secrets etc. None of this, follow the path and random number generator/tile stuff. Just walk around and suddenly, boom, you see a wild growlithe off in the distance. Would probably require some sort of algorithm so the game scales to your level, but that shouldn't be too difficult I imagine.

I'm okay with this. Companies have been confirming games years in advance, so this isn't anything new. Plus, they likely anticipated the reaction that Ultra Sun/Moon received from some of the fan base when it was announced for the 3DS only (Personally, I thought that made sense; BW2 still released on the DS despite the 3DS already being out).

Not do it again.

Seriously.

No.

With all the insanity that the "stars" rumor started, I can see why they at least said something. People were getting angry over rumors (and demanding a port of a 3ds game rather than utilizing the fact that the switch is a hd console and wanting something built from the ground up. I really don't get the port everything from 3ds mentality that has been slowly clinging on to the switch.) and acting like Game Freak denied them a game rather than giving them a new-ish one with ultra Sun/Moon. Personally this is what I wanted a Pokemon built for the switch. It seems like Nintendo is pushing 3ds games to function as stopgaps (ultra, FE Echoes, Metroid Return) while they work on the switch successors (all three franchises have switch successors in the wings). That keeps the 3ds crowd happy and then whets the appetite of both switch and 3ds owners.

I could see this being long time off, Game Freak have never really done much on home consoles let alone HD gaming and that's a big jump from the 3DS.

I'm kinda hoping for this to do what some people did with SuMo on emulators...lol

There's some kind of thingy that removes the outlines on character models in the game and that + the higher resolution looks awesome
Obviously still lower res textures on environments but the Pokémon themselves look gorgeous like that, they definitely made those models with the future of the series in mind and are gonna use those same models for the Switch game which takes a huge load off their work for the planned game I think (even if the Pokémon are all already designed, it still takes a lot of work to make those 750ish models for an HD game)

I'm waiting for Ultra SuMo before I want to say if I want more of that or not, because I feel like they're gonna change those games up a lot. That said I loved the direction they went in with Gen 7, it's very reminiscent of the Gamecube RPGs and I think those are some of the best games in the entire series, including spin-offs. If it's not gonna be like the main series games (which I doubt since they announced it as such) I'd want another game like the ones set in Orré.

What a beautiful signature.

@Tsurii I think that some of the models they used in X&Y and S&M were the same from Colosseum/XD, but maybe with a lower polygon count. And those games re-used models from Pokemon Stadium. Going forward, that means they only have to redo some of the older models, but I think they can reuse a lot of the current Pokemon, add a better texture and higher polygon count and they're good to go.

Tsurii

@Octane hmm, I know stuff like Ursaring got updated in Gen 6 so those old models have to be a really small part of that by now. Pretty sure they remade everything that was in Kalos' regional dex?

I'm super curious to see what direction they'll take with their art style. Ultra SuMo come first tho

What a beautiful signature.

Honestly, I would just like a classic Pokemon game.

I'm really burned out on the open world stuff coming at gamers from every angle. And honestly, I kind of consider Pokemon pseudo-open-world anyway. But I don't need to run around collecting 50 Rattata tails and 20 Arbok fangs to craft a new Poke Ball pouch, thank you very much.

This was a huge highlight for me ..sure, no gameplay or anything, but a game I've wanted since the late 90's - a mainline Pokémon on a home console - has finally been announced, so I'm thrilled!

I must admit though, when the Spotlight cut to Ishihara-san, who had some 'exciting news' to tell us - and he started talking about 'damn Pokkén again - my heart sank! ..then he's like; "oh, by the way...WE'RE MAKING THE GAME YOU ALWAYS WANTED!" - and my heart nearly exploded!

..the tease should have come with a **MAKE SURE YOU'RE SITTING DOWN** warning!
