Registration for Two New Pokemon Domains Spark Switch Rumors
A couple of domain name registrations related to Pokemon have resulted in rumors about new Pokemon games for the Switch. The domain names consist of Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee. Granted that those alone do not necessarily mean a new installment in the long-running franchise, but there are a couple of details that lend credence to the rumor.
First is that the registration was done by CSC Corporate Domains, Inc. This company has registered Pokemon websites for Nintendo in the past, most notably the official Pokemon Sun & Moon domains. The second detail consists of the two names, which seem to follow the Pokemon franchise’s MO of having two versions per iteration of the game.
Thankfully, Nintendo insider Emily Rogers has stated that Nintendo will be making a Pokemon Switch announcement by the end of the month, so we hopefully don’t need to wait too long for clarifications.
