Nintendo has yet to reveal when we’ll receive 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. A number of reports are pointing toward the titles of the highly-anticipated game, one of which is apparently called Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu. The second version is reportedly called Pokémon Let’s Go! Eevee. According to Emily Rogers of popular gaming forum ResetEra, the game will officially be announced by the end of this month and is heavily inspired by the immensely successful Pokémon GO. In a more recent forum post, Rogers has reiterated that Pokémon Switch will be announced within the next few days and before June:
Question: So, are we still good to expect an announcement by the end of this month?
Rogers: As far as I know, nothing has changed.
In addition, domains for both Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee have been registered by the same company Nintendo used to register the official website domain for Pokémon Sun and Moon. Nintendo also recently applied for a trademark for Eevee’s official Chinese name in Hong Kong. Nintendo also recently registered for trademarks for Pokémon and Pikachu in Japan. Many are speculating that these trademarks are directly related to Pokémon Switch. A Pokémon for Nintendo Switch placeholder is now being listed at Walmart for $79.96 and a December 31 ship date in Canada.
