New core series Pokemon RPG for Switch launches in second half of 2019

Further information yet to be announced.


The all-new core series Pokemon RPG for Switch first teased at E3 2017 will launch in the second half of 2019, The Pokemon Company announced during the Pokemon 2018 Video Game Press Conference.

During a Q&A session, The Pokemon Company said the late 2019-due title will be completely new and will not follow up on the newly announced Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go, Eevee, nor will it be influenced by Pokemon GO. While Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go, Eevee are more focused on home gaming, the late 2019-due Pokemon RPG will be more focused on elements of the handheld games. It has been in development since before the Switch was released. (via2345)
