EuroGamer writer Tom Phillips claims to have been told classified Nintendo information about the follow-up to the recently launched Pokémon Sun & Moon… and it won’t be a run-of-the-mill third version. The new game, codenamed Pokémon Stars, will be launching on the brand new Nintendo Switch console in summer 2017 or later.

Here are a few of the details:

  • Brand-new Pokémon not found in Sun & Moon
  • ‘Trading’ via Pokémon Box
  • Switch-exclusive features
  • Improved graphics

What do you think? This could be the first console version of the main series, but some fans may feel disappointed if there are exclusive Pokémon that require use of a totally different console.

It all comes together, doesn’t it?
