Rumor: Pokemon Switch Leak Reveals Game Name, Pikachu and Eevee Focus

Rumor: Pokemon Switch Leak Reveals Game Name, Pikachu and Eevee Focus

Another reason why people are buying into this latest rumor surrounding Pokemon on the Switch is a supposed "leaked" screenshot of the game that was posted on Twitter a few months ago.

This is according to a blog post by well-connected insider Emily Rogers who claims that the game will be officially revealed by the end of this month. Just the other day we learned about the existence of Rage 2 (along with a ton of other games) thanks to an accidental listing on Walmart Canada's website, which Bethesda has since confirmed.

As for the release window, she has stated that the game will launch in 2018 and considering how she seems confident in it, and how Nintendo has raised their forecast for Switch sales, it is entirely possible that we might get a one two punch of Smash Bros. and Pokemon Switch. Nintendo said as much at E3 past year. The following rumored details about Pokemon for Switch were published on the site. A recent tweet from Game Freak's Junichi Masuda also featured Pikachu and Eevee plushies, alongside a Pikachu doll wearing a Luigi costume, potentially in a sly nod towards Pokemon Let's GO!

Earlier today, Eurogamer reported that the upcoming Pokemon Nintendo Switch games will be set in the Kanto region, the region of the original Pokemon Red and Blue and that they will be some sort of Pokemon Yellow remake. We can't confirm any of these rumors, but if Rogers is to be believed, we should know much more within the next two weeks. In a blog post she discusses the importance of Pokémon GO to the franchise, suggesting a connection between the mobile game and the upcoming entry.
