Further speculation pointed to these games being released on the Nintendo Switch with the story taking place in the Kanto region where the franchise began.These rumors have been further substantiated by CSC, who register domains on Nintendo's behalf, registering pokemonletsgopikachu and pokemonletsgoeevee. So this is no longer marked as a rumour. Though Nintendo has yet to reveal any substantial information regarding the upcoming releases, the most recent leak suggests that it will be titled Pokemon Let's GO! and will prominently feature Pikachu and Eevee. Not a whole lot of details are known other than that it could be influenced a bit by Pokemon Go (will have its features be missing at launch?), and may involve the Kanto region.

Rumours that the these two titles would appear on the Switch were sparked yesterday, with a leaked image on 4chan. Both of these are one of the most popular IPs for Nintendo. How could Switch benefit from Pokémon Go's success, and how could Pokémon Go benefit from Switch's success? Reports state that either a new Go Plus device or a motion control accessory to emulate a PokéBall will come along with the game. Could it be like the 3DS version of Pokemon except on the Switch? At this time, it's not clear whether that will be the primary way you catch Pokemon or just an option.
