Sun and Moon look pretty decent in HD in an emulator.

I've watched some YouTube videos of them in HD and despite the characters and environments looking ropey the Pokémon themselves look surprisingly good in HD.

Apparently most of them already have high-polygon models ready to go for the Switch version.

I think it'll look decent, but I'm not expecting anything particularly impressive - GameFreak have no precedent for 3D HD games.

I also don't think we'll see much of an art style shift away from Sun/Moon, especially if they're reusing assets like the pokemon models.

I think Gamefreak have a decent set up for 3D pokemon games, their past console work shows that they are good at making decent pokemon models as they don't need too many animations with it being turn based.

I would assume he's hinting at online play with the multiplayer comments?

A proper Pokemon game on Switch would probably tip me over the edge into getting one, I'm not sure I would if it was just the same as the 3DS games, but if it steps up is more says open worldy like Zelda with Pokemon, gyms and battles then I could see myself getting it. I wasn't a big fan of Sun I have started it and drop it like 3 times now as I just can't get into it, I like the towns and gyms stuff from older games and the island challenge stuff just doesn't do it for me.

I don't think that's going to be the direction they take it:

Now all I want is a Breath of the Pokemon mod. Pokemon only appear in certain places and you have to explore to find them? Sign me right up!

I'd even settle for a Snap style game of that manner.

I'd be cool with a linear game in a world that looks like botw to be fair.

A better idea would be to replace all the Koroks with pokemon seeing how there are 900 of them in BotW.

Reveal coming later this month (according to reputable source, Emily Rogers)

https://arcadegirl64.wordpress.com/2018 ... 5-15-2018/

In July 2016, Pokémon Go launched, and became a massive phenomenon, having been downloaded more than 500 million times worldwide by the end of that year. Then, by 2017, overall download numbers increased to over 750 million a year. This all leads to a much bigger question: What lessons should Game Freak and Nintendo learn from Pokémon Go’s success? How could Switch benefit from Pokémon Go’s success, and how could Pokémon Go benefit from Switch’s success?

After all, it was Nintendo who released “Pokémon Go Plus”, a bluetooth wearable device, developed by Nintendo’s Platform Technology Division, that allows players to enjoy the game without looking at their smartphone. Would Nintendo ever dare to create more Pokémon Go accessories like that — possibly even for the Switch?

Joe Merrick, the creator of Serebii.net, once wrote an article on Nintendo Life titled “What Pokémon Go and the Pokemon series could learn from each other.”

As we wait for an announcement on the upcoming Pokémon title, which will be revealed before the end of this month, think about what Pokémon Go might mean for the future of the Pokémon series. I suspect that the naming/branding for this year’s Pokémon Switch title (there’s two versions) might raise a few eyebrows.

If it’s going to be a 2018 title it needs to be revealed by the end of the month, as Gamefreak don’t do E3 reveals for their games.

History says I'll probably end up buying a Switch to play this at launch. Then about a month (at most) later, never touching either the game or console again :fp:

Still can't believe they made a Pokemon whose schtick is holding up its saggy ass pants, which are also its scaly skin.

Yeah I'll be looking out for this.

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...

Latest rumour is Yellow remake wth heavy influence/integration with Pokemon Go, and going to be titled Let’s Go with Pikachu and Eevee versions....

Wonder if this is going to be a big reboot for the series.
