The rumour mills are in full swing as two new domain names have added fuel to the Pokemon Switch fire, prior to E3 2018.
The two new registered domains are pokemonletsgopikachu and pokemonletsgoeevee, respectively. Interestingly enough, both those names correlate with a rumour from earlier this month that allegedly leaked the title of a yet-to-be-announced Pokemon title for the Nintendo Switch. the image in question can be viewed below and it roughly translates to Let’s Go Pikachu.
To add even more fuel to the story, Emily Rogers, a journalist notorious on the internet for her insider information, hinted at the possibility of Pokemon Go connectivity with the upcoming Nintendo Switch Pokemon titles.
Twitter user Nibel, who in the past, accurately predicted the existence of the PlayStation Pro and the Spider-Man game from Insomniac, retweeted the alleged leaked logo for the upcoming game, adding some credence to the image.
If the rumours are true, the above domains are referring to a generation 1 remake starring Pikachu or Eevee, dependent on the version purchased. The Let’s Go in the title may refer to the connectivity with the Pokemon Go mobile app. Additionally, the games may feature Pokemon that follow the trainer around, akin to Pokemon Yellow Version and the Gold and Silver remakes from 2009.
E3 2018 will take place from June 12 to June 14 and will hopefully shed some light on the future of Pokemon.
