Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee were not they only Pokémon games that had been announced last week. Much to the relief of hardcore Pokémon fans, a completely new game has already been announced and will be coming in 2019, but the Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara has provided some more information on the game in a recent feature.
The feature was released in Japanese publication Famitsu and was an extensive feature on the new Pokémon Let’s Go games that were announced last week. Despite this, the CEO has given out some sappy information on next year’s games. According to him, the games feature graphics that have never been seen in a Pokémon game before. Pokémon games have never had the most amazing graphics but with the recent move to HD for the Nintendo Switch games we saw just how amazing the Pokémon world looks in HD. An even greater improvement in the graphics will be nothing short of awesome.
He also confirmed that the game will be aimed at experienced fans and will be nothing like the Let’s Go games. This most likely means that the Pokémon Go catching mechanics won’t be in those games but were uncertain if those games will have roaming Pokémon or if wild battles will return. He also confirmed that it will be an entirely new region with a large variety of entirely new Pokémon. Lastly he said that the games will be released in the second half of 2019, which is not that surprising since every main Pokémon game has been released around the months October/November for the last five years.
If past releases are anything to go by we can expect to see the first trailer showcasing a few of the new Pokémon and a little bit of the new region, which will probably be released somewhere around springtime next year. After that it’s often a long wait while the Pokémon Company slowly but steadily releases batches of new Pokémon through trailers or publications.
For those interested in more information on Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, the games will be playable during E3, so expect some gameplay on the internet next week.
