HEY! HO! LET’S GO!

Usually Nintendo’s tighter than a duck’s butt when it comes to keeping some games secret, but it looks like latest Pokémon game may have been leaked a little early. According to Serebii and found on ResetEra, two new domain names have been registered by the company responsible for originally trademarking the Pokemon Sun and Moon domains a few years back. Say hello to the next duo of Pokémon games which ties into the butchering of The Ramones that I used to start this post with:

Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu

Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee

That’s a big departure from the usual Pokemon naming convention, which may sound minor on the surface, but usually carries massive implications for the next pair of chapters in the mainline series. Will this be the first proper Pokemon RPG on the Nintendo Switch that introduces the eighth generation of pocket monsters? Will Pikachu have a few extra tricks up his sleeve to combat Eevee and that fella’s multiple evolutions?

More importantly, are you Team Pikachu or Team Eevee? The battle lines have been drawn pal. Choose wisely.

Update: AllGamesDelta recently added more fuel to the fire, confirming a request from Nintendo to trademark Eevee’s Chinese name.
