Earlier this year around the time E3 2018 was about to kick off, Nintendo made some announcements of their own where they confirmed that they would be launching a new core Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch. The game was initially pegged for the second half of 2019, but now it looks like it could be delayed ever so slightly.
By saying the second half of 2019, basically we're looking at anywhere between July to December, and we're sure that many are hoping it will be July. However now that it has been pushed to late 2019, it means that we're looking at anywhere between October to December. This "delay" was confirmed by Nintendo themselves in their launch schedule which now pegs the game's release for late 2019.
The good news is that the other two Pokemon games announced for 2018 are still on track for a release this year. Announced alongside the core Pokemon game, Nintendo also announced Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! which won’t be the new core Pokemon RPG that players are hoping for, but are instead based on and inspired by Pokemon Yellow.
However they do feature brand new graphics and do link up and sync with Pokemon GO, so there’s that. Based on Nintendo’s scheduling, both the Let’s Go Pokemon titles are set for release on the 16th of November, 2018 as promised.
