The Pokemon Company hiring for what could be a new mobile game
The Pokemon Company has posted a job listing for what looks to be a new mobile title. Game Informer spotted the page on LinkedIn, which specifically mentions mobile/gaming design as a desired trait from applicants.
Another interesting tidbit is that The Pokemon Company is seeking someone who has experience in Unity. Pokemon Trading Card Game, currently only available on tablets, is the only Pokemon title to make use of that engine. Could The Pokemon Company be pursuing a port to phones or something else entirely?
