Pokémon president Tsunekazu Ishihara explains difficulty of making console Pokémon game via Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee

In a recent interview with Dime, The Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara spoke about the difficulty of making a mainline Pokémon game on console via Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee:

“The main entries in the Pokemon game series have always been on handheld systems – from the Game Boy all the way to the 3DS. For this next entry, the Nintendo Switch has a variety of playstyles. While you can still play in handheld mode, you now have the option of playing on a bigger TV screen while in docked mode. Given this new hardware, I’ve found it harder to make a new mainline Pokemon game than I had originally thought. Even as a Pokemon game on the Switch, does it still work? Is it possible for me to make all of those playstyles interesting? I think it’s probably about five times harder than any of you could imagine! (laughs)”
