Latest Next Games News

Published 13 minutes ago Pokemon fans theorize that sketches from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet could potentially hint at the next games in the franchise. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players think that sketches in the games potentially hint at the next titles in the Pokemon franchise. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have only been out for a few months at this point, but Pokemon fans are always looking to the future. With Pokemon being one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, new entries are a guarantee, and so it's just a matter of when Game Freak and Nintendo announce what's coming next. If Pokemon Sword and Shield were any indication, next up for Pokemon fans should be Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC and expansion packs . It's highly likely that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be getting DLC at some point in the near future, but details on what that DLC may entail have not been announced at the time of this writing. However, some fans think books in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet hint at the DLC, while others think those same books hint at the next games in the series. In the Scarlet book, players can see a sketch that is potentially a Paradox Suicune , while Violet has a sketch that appears to be a Paradox Virizion. Others posit that these are actually amalgamations of the respective legendary trios that Suicune and Virizion belong to, but that's up for debate. While it's possible these Pokemon will appear in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC, Reddit user redjaypeg has put forward the theory that these sketches are pointing to the next games in the series. Suicune is from Generation 2, whereas Virizion is from Generation 5, so the theory is that those generations will get remakes or related games next. Generation 2 has already had remakes in the form of Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver, but that doesn't mean the Johto region can't be revisited in a future Pokemon game. The hypothetical game mentioned by redjaypeg is Pokemon Legends: Celebi, a potential sequel to the acclaimed Pokemon Legends: Arceus . Previously, it was rumored that Johto would be revisited in a sequel to the Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee games, but that never came to pass. Regardless, it seems safe to say that many Pokemon fans would jump at the opportunity to revisit Johto. As far as the Generation 5 games go, the most likely scenario is that they would be represented in potential Pokemon Black and White remakes. With the release of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in 2021, Pokemon Black and White remakes would be next in line, after all. Of course, it's possible the sketches found in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are hinting at DLC or are showcasing scrapped Pokemon designs. Fans also think that the latest games in the series may have clues about where the Generation 10 Pokemon games will take place , so it will definitely be interesting to see what happens with the Pokemon franchise in future entries. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are out now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
