Back in December, Game Freaks' Junichi Masuda briefly talked about how the Nintendo Switch and how players use the console will influence future entries in the series. Now that the console has been available on the market for over 4 months, the team will definitely have a better idea about this.

No doubt Nintendo Switch is the future, but we will have to wait for it to come out to the market and study in what way can Pokemon benefit from it.
