Nintendo finally announces the new ‘Pokémon’… And it wasn’t in the bets

We were not few who were going around the new Pokémon that was due for 2024. Would it be a remake? A ‘Let’s go’? Or maybe they were ready to let go and announce a new game in the main series? Well, in the end, neither one nor the other: they have dusted off the ‘Pokémon Legends’ franchise, destined to experiment with the saga, and after ‘Arceus’ we have… ‘Z-A’. Gotta catch ’em all, no other choice.

A poke-city

While in ‘Pokémon Legends Arceus’ we traveled to the past of the world, in ‘Z-A’ we see the urban plan of Lumiose City, which served as the center of ‘X/Y’ and will now be bigger than ever. So much so, that we won’t even leave the city itself to search for new creatures on the routes: everything will take place throughout the streets of the capital of Kalos.

And perhaps the most interesting thing about the trailer is the announcement that it will be released in early 2025 and that it will be playable on Switch. What they are hiding and is quite clear is that, like ‘Zelda Breath of the Wild’ did in its day, it will serve as a perfect bridge between the console we know and Switch 2. Obviously, they cannot say it yet before the big presentation, but it is starting to become obvious.

‘Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ also marks Game Freak’s return to the helm of a game outside the main series, so we can deduce that this one will have juicy news beyond mega-evolutions. Maybe we will be able to build part of the city ourselves? What will be the mechanism? Will there be badges? And wild Pokémon? Many questions still to be answered that we will know within a year. It’s time to catch them all again!
