At the start of this month, Nintendo, Creatures and Game Freak filed a trademark application for エンテイ (Entei). As in the name of the legendary fire-type pocket monster that first appeared in Pokémon Gold and Silver on the Game Boy Color.

According to PokéJungle, some Pokémon fans think this trademark might be connected to a follow-up of the 2018 Switch release, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! (which were remakes of the original Game Boy games). Here's some speculation about what this could be from a user on the Pokémon subreddit:

"Pokemon Entei sounds a bit like a spin-off, but it could have some connection to Lets Go Johto."

Of course, it could be anything else related to Pokémon as well...we'll just have to wait and see!

Apart from this, Nintendo also filed trademarks for Game & Watch, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury expansion, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, and Donkey Kong Country.

What do you think the trademark for Entei might be linked to? How about that Donkey Kong one? Tell us down below.
