Mysterious New Pokemon Mobile Game Revealed by Job Listing

I'm hoping for a game that lets you wander a nuclear wasteland as a well-armed and battle-hardened Bidoof.

Do you have what it takes to be a Pokemon Master? No, don't bother showing off your filled-out National PokeDex or your Shiny collection. I'm talking about the kind of Pokemon Master who knows something about Unity, flowcharts, and mobile game design.

Yes, The Pokemon Company is apparently working on a new mobile game, and it's recruiting for the position (thanks, Nintendolife). The job posting is run-of-the-mill for mobile game design, and it doesn't reveal any secrets about what The Pokemon Company has in store.

According to the posting, the chosen one will:

  • Work with artists and designers to create a fantastic UI experience.
  • Work with Product Management to define the ideal feature set for this game.
  • Work with Producers to manage all the designers’ sprint tasks.
  • Work with the Director of Gaming to define/enforce the vision for this game.

The listing invites candidates to work at The Pokemon Company's Bellevue, Washington location, which means it's likely this mysterious mobile game is being developed internally. Pokemon Go is developed by Niantic outside The Pokemon Company's walls, and even the surprisingly awesome Magikarp Jump was made by Select Button (the mobile studio responsible for Magikarp Jump's direct inspiration, Survive! Mola Mola!).

As Nintendolife points out, this same position was posted nearly a month ago, but seems to have gone up again. That could mean the previous candidate didn't work out, or The Pokemon Company wants to bring in another person to help speed up development. Maybe it's hiring for a game or app that ties into Pokemon Gen 8? We'll find out eventually. In the meantime, we must be patient, like a Litten waiting and watching outside a Rattata hole.
