I’ve waited for Pokemon on the Switch – or any home console, for that matter – for a long, long time. Sure, we got Pokemon Let’s Go last year (which we thought was great), and there were others like Snap or Colosseum, but those just didn’t carry the same weight of a full-fledged core Pokemon game – one that’s meant to carry on the torch from Pokemon Red and Blue, and the most recent Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
One of my very first op-eds as a full-time editor at IGN was 5 Things We Want in a Pokemon Switch Game, back in April 2017. During that year’s E3 we learned there was, indeed, a core Pokemon RPG in development for the Switch, but got no other details, not even a logo. The next year, in May 2018, we were reassured it was still coming (in 2019) and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee, Let’s Go Pikachu, and Pokemon Quest were announced in one fell swoop, a smart move for The Pokemon Company.
