Nintendo has been understandably cagey about the future Pokémon titles on the way. No, I’m not talking about Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, but the upcoming core RPG game that long-time fans are looking forward to. These are set to be the games that will actually advance the franchise forward, hopefully giving us a more epic-in-scope experience than we’ve ever had before.
But are those games the only ones on the way? Does Nintendo have another batch of Pokémon games up their sleeves? If you’d’ve asked me a few days ago, I would have said that it’s unlikely, since they’ll want to focus on those major games, but if a new Amazon UK listing is to be believed, that may not be the case.
Twitter user CrockOClock recently captured a series of listings on the online store, and it includes two unnamed Switch Pokémon titles that are titled Switch Title 23 – (Nintendo 3DS) and Switch Title 30 – (Nintendo 3DS).
Amazon UK has listings of several #NintendoSwitch titles (up to no.30) that states “Just Announced at the Nintendo Switch event” & includes 2 Pokemon 3DS titles for Switch. Could be old/ mistake/ error, & it could mean a #NintendoDirect is coming soon with several announcements. pic.twitter.com/Y3g22DPXIg

Okay, so what the hell could this mean? There are a few ways to interpret this. One way is that Nintendo will be releasing Switch ports of two Pokémon titles, and that this listing is for these titles. Another is that this was a listing mistake and that they may very well be the listings for the eventual core RPG titles. The third is that these titles are unrelated to both of those options, and are two completely unique entries in the franchise.
Personally, the only reason I think it could be the latter choice is because one is numbered as 23 and the other as 30. Were they actually companion titles (á la Red and Blue), you’d think they’d be numbered 23 and 24.
But who knows? Since it’s just a generic listing, there is no telling which of those options it is. Which of those do you think it is? Let us know down below!
