That seemingly factors into the game's possible ties to Pokemon Go. Then, by 2017, overall download numbers increased to over 750 million a year. Currently, on Android alone, the game has been downloaded for more than 100 million times. Nintendo hasn't given any indication that they'll air a Pokemon Direct this week, but that hasn't stopped fans from getting even more excited about the prospect of a new pair of games.
Two different domains for the game were also registered, which are Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Evee. It seems that the plan is for the Switch versions of Pokemon to allow users to catch Pokemon in a manner similar to the one seen in the popular mobile game. This version, though, would feature visuals similar to those seen in the Nintendo 3DS Pokemon games. The domain names were registered yesterday, with a company called CSC Corporate Domains doing the leg work. The Pixelpar Twitter account, which has been teasing Pokemon Switch announcements for a while now, has also been dropping hints regarding Pikachu and Eevee's prominence in the RPG.
"As we wait for an announcement on the upcoming Pokémon title, which will be revealed before the end of this month, think about what Pokémon Go might mean for the future of the Pokémon series". We certainly wouldn't be surprised to hear that any of this leaked information is true, but the exact details noted in these leaks should be considered with caution until something official emerges.More news: Russian company charged in Mueller probe seeks grand jury materials

If the information about a reveal before the end of May turns out to be correct, we should get a taste of whether this is the direction Nintendo is going within the next few weeks.
The only thing we know for sure is that Game Freak is indeed working on a more traditional Pokemon game for the Switch.
