We know that Game Freak is working on a new Pokémon game for Nintendo Switch, but we don’t really know anything about the game other than that. Because of that, there have been tons of rumors, but this one could be the most interesting of all. According to a user on Twitter, a Pokémon leaker called Chinese Riddler has stated that the upcoming Pokémon game on Switch will be a reboot for the franchise.

The leaker was previously correct about a ton of leaked information about the Generation VII Pokémon games (Sun and Moon), lending some credence to the supposed leak. However, there are currently no additional details or reports to corroborate the story, so we can only speculate at this point.

Would this mean that the story of the franchise would be rebooted? Could it mean that Game Freak will be removing many (if not all) of the 807 known Pokémon from the franchise? Let us know what you guys think in the comments!

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
