However, instead of the augmented reality that “Pokémon GO” carries for the iOS and Android OS, the speculated Switch version of the game may follow suit to the original game. The main difference of the speculated game will be on the characters and the Pokémon in the game. It is speculated that there will be new Pokémon introduced if there such a game were to be released for the Switch.

He said, “Pokémon has been about being portable, but now there is the Switch, which is a portable home console, so it has a bigger screen and higher specs than we’re used to.” However, Ishihara does say further in the interview that he cannot confirm any projects.
