It could be a while before we get any substantial news on the first core console Pokémon RPG and Generation 8 Pokémon, but that hasn’t stopped people from sharing rumors of all sorts. For example, Emily Rogers of ResetEra is saying the game will be released this year on Nintendo Switch with at least two different versions. Here are her comments in full:
What I said: I believe a Pokemon game is releasing on Switch later this year. It will be a RPG with at least two versions.
What I didn’t say: I didn’t specify whether it was a core game, a spinoff series, a remake of an older game, or a Gen 8 game.
I won’t be sharing anymore details. The announcement isn’t that far away.
