After Pokémon Violet and Scarlet, 10G looks amazing (but won’t work right away)

The next Pokémon games will be amazing, but they won’t be released until a few years from now.

After more than 25 years of existence, the Pokémon license seems to have finally found its way. The tests carried out on Pokémon Legends: Arceus have paid off, and it must be admitted that, despite criticism of the game’s graphic design, Violet and Scarlet have proven themselves to be a generation that we no longer expected. This franchise has never been as popular as it is today, and the developers are already envisioning the future of pocket monster adventures.

No 10G for 10 years?

If we follow the logic started by Pokémon, the next generation could arrive on our consoles within three to four years. A tight deadline for Game Freak, who had until 2026 to develop their 10G and thus properly celebrate the iconic brand’s 30th anniversary. Faced with criticism from Pokémon fans in recent years, Game Freak’s wisest decision would probably be to delay the release of his next games for a few years to ensure the best possible performance.

By outsourcing the production of their next spin-offs to third-party developers, the Pokémon Company could afford time to work on its return to the scene. An opportunity for the company to perfect its next generation and finally offer games worthy of the name.

New console, new horizons

If the next Pokémon games are released after 2026, they can afford to go to the next Nintendo console and thus take advantage of a significant technical gap. It remains to be seen if the rest of the market will produce a graphical shift by then that could undermine Game Freak’s graphical capabilities.

In the meantime, we still advise you to take a look at the latest version of The Pokémon Company. Violet and Scarlet are far from perfect, but they themselves mark a small revolution from a franchise that has struggled to innovate.
