Junichi Masuda again says next Pokemon game will let you bring over older creatures
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee are the first Pokemon games for Switch. But as we know, another new project – described as a core title – is set to arrive on the console during the second half of 2019. We’ve heard director Junichi Masuda talk about transferring Pokemon in the past, though it’s something he touched on again in an interview with GameSpot.
Masuda said that the team is still sorting through all of the details and figuring out how things will work. However, he reiterated, “we do have plans to find ways to let players use their Pokemon in the next game.”
Masuda’s full words when asked whether Game Freak is looking at letting Pokemon to move between Let’s Go and the next core title:
“We’re definitely always thinking of that kind of forward-moving functionality, especially since we’ve introduced Pokemon Bank. Now, up to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, you’re able to store your Pokemon, and we know they’re very important to everyone. I mean, obviously, people would be very sad if they couldn’t use their Pokemon in a future game. So, it does get complicated when you talk about the details and we’re still figuring it out, but we do have plans to find ways to let players use their Pokemon in the next game.”
