Two recruitment advertisements have been listed from Pokémon developers Game Freak, specifying work on a console game. The ad opens with "Here's a chance to work on the development of a globally popular RPG!" before going on to say that the employee will be working on "characters, Monsters and Items". Spotted by Siliconera, the vacant position is looking for a Game 3DCG Designer and a Character Model Creator to work on "a title that everyone knows".

Everything but the actual mention of the word Pokémon is undoubtedly pointing towards the popular series.

Last year Pokémon Sun & Moon were released to critical acclaim for the 3DS, which then lead to speculation of a combined version or third entry coming to the Switch; Pokémon Stars. This certainly gives fuel to the rumour that the game is in development, however it's unlikely we'll hear anything until E3 at the earliest. If proven true this would be the first mainline Pokémon game to be featured on a console (outside of Game Boy Player and so on).

What do you think about the recruitment ads? Do you think the Switch will get a mainline Pokémon game?
