E3 2018 is approaching, which arouses the enthusiasm for big announcements. Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Bethesda, Ubisoft and more will bring trailers and (hopefully) some surprises to the series, so it's time for speculation! Although the Nintendo Switch Pokemon game was not confirmed at the Nintendo E3 2018 presentation, this year's top priority is our wish list. Here's everything we know about the game and all we really want to see is June.

A new Pokémon game for Nintendo Switch has been announced at E3 2017. Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokemon Company, appeared during the presentation by Nintendo to tease the game. He called it "an RPG Pokemon core title" developed by Game Freak for Nintendo Switch, and said it may not be released for more than a year. Game Freak has developed all the major Pokémon RPGs; The spinoff games are made by other studios.
What is Confirmed for E3
It is currently unknown if the Pokémon Switch game will be released during Nintendo's E3 2018 presentation. Nintendo has previously stated that its briefing will focus more on games that will be released sooner than on games starting after 2018; However, this is the same structure as the 2017 presentation that Pokemon Switch was announced in, so there is room for forward-looking revelations.
What we hope to see at E3
Because we know so little about this game, the least we can ask for are some basic details: what it's called, where it's set up, and whether it introduces new Pokémon would be a good starting point. But one of the biggest questions is what this next generation of Pokemon will look like on Switch, which means getting a real trailer. 3D Pokémon games are relatively new – at least for the main RPGs – and since Switch is much more powerful than 3DS, there is more potential for some big changes in the look of the game.
If we really do everything We would be happy if the game was playable on the show stage – and in that case, why not get a release date or window for a good measure? Maybe it is not very likely, but we can hope.
