Pokemon fans rejoice as there appear to be even more video games coming soon for the Nintendo Switch console. This news should be taken lightly as there is no official word on the titles quite yet, but it appears that Amazon had accidentally posted a few listings for Pokemon games slated for the Nintendo Switch.
None of the titles have a proper name attached but out of the few posted, two appear to be ports from the Nintendo 3DS. This wouldn’t come as a big surprise since the Nintendo Switch has received a number of ports from the Nintendo Wii U and it would make sense that the company would also bring over some of their latest Pokemon hits from the Nintendo 3DS as well.
This listing also indicates that the video games were announced at a recent Nintendo Switch event which could mean that a new Nintendo Direct is coming as well. This would be a bit odd since we just had a Nintendo Direct that covered another big upcoming release for the console, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
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

Currently, we know that the Nintendo Switch is receiving Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee which are a remake of Pokemon Yellow. Likewise, an unannounced core Pokemon RPG is also being developed for the console sometime this coming up year.
For now, all we have is a screenshot that was captured by Twitter user, @CrocOclock that shows the listings before Amazon had taken them down. We’ll keep an eye out for news of an upcoming Nintendo Direct in the meantime.
