Video: Three Pokémon Games In One Year? Game Freak, Slow Down


It seems like only yesterday that Pokémon Legends: Arceus came out. And although it wasn’t yesterday, it was only… one month ago. That’s basically no time at all in the world of video games, and we’ve just received word that the next Pokémon game is not only in the works — it’s ready to be revealed, and it’s coming out later this year. Can someone check that Game Freak haven’t been locked in their office?

It’s pretty unusual for two Pokémon games to be released in such a short time, even with the added complications of the pandemic, and Pokémon Legends being entirely different from other mainline Pokémon games. And don’t forget: The Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes came out in late 2021, which means we’re currently on track for three Pokémon games in a single year.

Granted, BDSP was outsourced, and the Pokémon Legends team is separate from the new Pokémon team, but that’s still one heck of a lot of work!

But what do the video team (in this case, newcomer Felix and oldcomer Alex) think about this surprising news? Check out the video above for their take on the announcement of Pokémon Gen 9, which will henceforth be known as Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet!
