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!
