Pokemon Company Appears to be Making Another Mobile Game

Pokemon Company Appears to be Making Another Mobile Game

Why stop now?

The Pokemon Company is hiring a Principal Game Designer to work on an upcoming mobile game. Since this is the Pokemon Company and they only really work on one series we can probably guess safely that this is for a Pokemon mobile game.

In a job listing on Linkedin the Pokemon Company is looking for "a creative individual that not only understands the secret sauce but also can communicate that vision to others." While I don't think "secret sauce" is a quantifiable skill, but hey if it gets the job done.

This listing is directly from the Pokemon Company so it will be interesting to see what mobile game the studio can build after the massive success Niantic has had with Pokemon Go. So big that elements of Pokemon Go were heavily incorporated into the Switch release of Pokemon Let's Go.

No idea when we'll see or hear about this mysterious mobile title will be revealed, but we'll be on the lookout. In the meantime check out our Pokemon Go PvP guide.
