Personally, I would prefer that Pokémon is delayed so that Game Freak produce the best possible game that they can. Many of us longtime Pokémon players feel quite burned out by the franchise due to the underwhelming nature of many of the more recent entries in the series, and while I would LOVE to have a main series console Pokémon game as soon as possible, I would rather that they pull all the stops and take as long as they need.

After all, they will be recycling this engine throughout the lifespan of the Switch, so they may as well perfect it the first time.

If this game is just XY/SM in HD, I am staying as far away from it as possible. This is the console market, Game Freak is playing with the big boys now so the game should have FAR more content than the previous games. If BotW is too much for them, they should at least target something more like Twilight Princess, that would be a reasonable step up for them that would still feel console-esque.

I think a Zelda game is a poor comparison for Pokemon. Breath of the Wild maybe, but there aren’t any dense areas in that game like the dungeons in Zelda games. Pokemon is just walking until something attacks you, rarely does the level design play a role other than gatekeeping. Right now the majority of Pokemon is grinding, and it’ll stay that way unless a major new mechanic is added. Thanks to that grinding, my Pokemon Diamond save file is more than double my 100%ed BotW save.

This thread seems to be repeating itself again

This is something I wouldn’t normally say, but they should really go ahead and reveal more details about the game.

Why? Psychology. I know that what fans want from a console Pokémon isn’t what they’re going to end up getting, and the longer they have to speculate and the shorter time between reveal and release, the less they’ll accept the game that is produced in the end.

Alleged datamine of upcoming Switch titles. Includes Pokémon and Zelda games.

Haven't read anything besides the article yet, but I'd be surprised if it's legit. Some of the harder to guess titles like Mario Tennis Aces might have been added after the fact. Grain of salt, yadda yadda.

Edit: after giving the list of titles a glance, I'm 100% sure it's fake. Ridiculous titles aside, it's piggybacking older rumors that have already been proven false, like the Fire Emblem: Mutiny one or the one about a new JoJo game. Also, Street Fighter Collection is listed twice.

Edit 2: lol @ Punch-Out!! Meets MadWorld In Pato Box. Someone had fun making this up.

@MarcelRguez Mario Tennis Aces was revealed in January. Chemical and Nuclear are as fake as it can get.

Mii Mania, Mii Sports Switch, Mii Party Switch, Mii Fit Switch, Final Fantasy XVI, Nintendogs: Canine Experiences, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker & World Explorer, Skyptendo, Kid Icarus: Rise of the Underworld, Donkey Kong: Banana Bonanza, F Zero: Turbo Grand Prix, Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival DX, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards HD, New Super Mario Bros.: Back n Forth, The Division 2, Earthbound Collection, Captain Rainbow HD...

Yeah... No.

Besides, how do you even 'datamine' upcoming games lol?

To be fair they datamined the 3DS eShop and found the icons for Ever Oasis and Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowsers Minions before its reveal.

We're talking about a list of 100+ games that contains more than a year's worth of releases.

@Octane If people can break into PSN and extract the credit card info of thousands of users, I don't think it's that unrealistic for someone to access a database of upcoming titles.

But yeah, that's a moot point since this is supposed to be a datamine, which makes no sense either.

(And if you're questioning why such a database would exist at all... ¯(ツ)/ ¯)

@MarcelRguez I already mentioned the eShop has been datamindd before, specifically revealing M&L Superstar Saga before its reveal.

Dillon’s Rolling Western 2 is on the list... despite the title having been long announced as Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger.

There are some amazing titles in this 'datamine' though:
Punch-Out!! Meets MadWorld In Pato Box
Xenoblade Warriors
Rayman's 2D Legacy Collection - (What would even be in this? Origins and Rayman 1?)

Looks like someone just used that game name generator from 2015.

Bangs head I knew that sounded familiar. Pato Box was the name of a Kickstarter game, advertised as "Punch-Out!!! meets Madworld" It was the one with the duck. So apparently that isn't a crossover... though I also doubt it's in Nintendo's system with that title.

@MarcelRguez Well yeah, if Nintendo has a list like this stored somewhere for whatever reason and someone managed to hack Nintendo itself... Maybe?

(RE: #723 and above)

My girlfriend was done with X/Y after only about 30 hours - so far in US/UM, she's spent over 70 hours with the game, mainly focusing on the story (although she hasn't completed it yet) with plenty of stuff to return to afterwards (which she fully intends to do) ..so it'd seem that, in terms of content, the series is in something of an upward curve at the moment

I usually like to think that I'll be able to spend at least 100 hours with a 'AAA' game - if a game is going to command a 'AAA' price tag, I think it's reasonable to expect a substantial amount of content in return...my girlfriend seems to think that she should easily be able to pass that (arbitrary) milestone before she's done with US/UM (she's already far more satisfied with this game than she was X/Y - anything else from here is a bonus in comparison!) - and if Pokemon Switch can be similarly substantial, I think it'd make for a satisfying experience

As for the Zelda comparison...I played Pokemon Blue before I ever played a 2D Zelda game - when I went back and played a SNES-era Zelda, aside from the combat, it gave me some serious Pokemon vibes. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Pokemon has borrowed a number of ideas from the Zelda series in the past - and it wouldn't surprise me if they borrowed a few more going forward. If they were clever about it, I think that it would be more-than-possible for them to take a few of the Breath of the Wild mechanics and introduce them to the Pokemon series, without overly compromising what makes the 'core' of a Pokemon game.

I think that, as the Pokemon series transitions to 'HD' hardware, we're all hoping to see a similar leap forward with the game itself...that's not to say that they should just tear up the rulebook and start from scratch - there's no doubt that it should retain its identity - but it'd be nice to see it retain the classic 'core' that makes a Pokemon game, but also see it evolve in to something modern and fresh.

If that means open-world, cool - that doesn't mean that it couldn't also be linear (eg. see GTAV or Skyrim and their 'mission markers' keeping you on track) ..if they revamp the battle system, cool - it's possible to add fluidity to a turn-based battle system ..so long as it still retains that classic Pokemon feel, I'm open to it!
