Pokemon Company Boss Says Trading and PvP Still Coming to Pokemon Go

It turns out that even Pokemon's CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara, someone we'd assume is a great deal more in-the-know when it comes to Nintendo, didn't think the Nintendo Switch would be successful.

"It's obvious I was wrong".

"I came to realize the key to a successful game is quite simple: software with absolute quality leads sales of hardware", he continued.

While the Switch's library started off relatively lacklustre with few launch games worth playing, a number of excellent titles have been released for the console over the last few months, with one particular game that will likely be the platform's biggest release yet, Super Mario Odyssey, set to be released next month. Having the President of the Pokemon Company state something so surely is significant, but we can't help but notice the glaring contradiction in the Switch's 4.7 million units sold. He said that "We see [the Switch] as a chance to create Pokémon that goes deeper and with a higher level of expression".

In the meantime, three new Legendary Pokemon have just begun to appear in Pokemon Go and field testing of EX Raid Battles has begun, which means Mewtwo should be in the game any day now. "As a result, that makes it an extremely important platform", he says. Those who do not have one will still be able to play sections of the game at a time but you won't be able to have all of the content all at once. Unlike a smartphone, the Switch does not need a permanent network connectivity, which makes it similar to other handhelds like the DS or 3DS in terms of connectivity.

As great as the Nintendo Switch is, 32GB of internal storage isn't really enough for modern gaming.

"Pokemon games work well on handheld devices and we are developing games that work on Switch, I can't give you details on what we are working on at this Stage".
