Off topic: we now have a power cut so I'm spending the night on Pokemon sites lol.
Hype for tomorrow! I'm hoping for something for a Switch. I actually bookmarked some comments round here to quote if Stars finally becomes a thing for giggles. Hope I'll be able to quote those things tomorrow lol
Well there is still a remote chance that the first Pokemon Switch game will be Masuda's success in making the stadium series have a purpose again i.e. just make potential ideas for postgame content it's own game.
or you know an Alola follow up on 3ds is still possible
I wanna point out that it has been confirmed that Monster Hunter XX does have connectivity between the Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Switch. This means it is possible for them to create a form of connectivity between consoles and that they might be able to develop a way for us to move our Pokemon to the Switch.
I don't care that USUM aren't Switch games because I'd find them massively underwhelming anyway, but in Eurogamer's defense, that "Switch TBA" slip-up in the press release does imply that at some point, a Switch version was considered. Otherwise, it's a strange coincidence.
A fifth Alola version for Switch in 2018 would be ridiculous should it turn out that the Stars idea hasn't been completely buried. But it makes no difference to me, so whatever. I am not sure I will get a Switch at all given Game Freak's track record (SM were the only 3DS games I somewhat liked).
