It was previously confirmed that there would be a Pokemon RPG developed for the Nintendo Switch. However with Pokemon: Let’s Go! having recently been announced, are those the games we’ve been hearing so much about? The good news is that it isn’t, because not only can Switch gamers expect two new Pokemon games this year, but there will also be a brand new core Pokemon RPG that will arrive for the Switch next year.

This was confirmed by Pokemon director, producer, and composer Junichi Masuda who told reporters, “Now today I can only tell you of it’s existence, but it’s another game we’re pouring all of our creativity into. I hope you look forward to it while also enjoying Pokemon Quest and Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee.”

We know it’s a bit confusing but basically two new Pokemon games will be launching this year on the Switch. However those games will not feature new Pokemon and are instead reminiscent of Pokemon Yellow, which like we said before isn’t necessarily a bad thing and is designed to introduce new players to the world of Pokemon.

However for seasoned players who want something new, that’s where is core Pokemon RPG comes in, although details are a bit scarce for now save for its launch in 2019. Masuda also revealed that the game will “follow in the tradition of Pokemon X and Y and Pokemon Sun and Moon.” We guess we’ll have to wait until 2019 to check it out, but in the meantime the new Pokemon: Let’s Go! titles are set for a release this coming November.
