Another version of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon is planned for the Nintendo Switch, according to rumors for EuroGamer, and it is going to be called Pokémon Stars. Yes, the star shape Pokémon Minior should now feel right at home.
A new iconic Pokémon will likely be on the cover, joining Solgaleo and Lunala. And, thanks to the increased number of generations that can be transferred, star-shaped Pokémon like Staryu and Starmie do not have to miss out on the cosmic fun, just like Solrock did not miss out on Pokémon Sun and Lunatone did not miss out on Pokémon Moon.
Consider Pokémon Stars the Pokémon Yellow to Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, or the Pokémon Platinum to Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl. This is not the first time that there has been a third edition to a generation. But this is the first time it is spanning their separate devices.
The game will still be made by Game Freak and while they were working on it at the same time as Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, they paused its development a few months back to polish the titles that were released in North America today. They have also stated that Pokémon Stars will have several features that neither Pokémon Sun nor Pokémon Moon has. And it will be built using higher resolution graphics.
But does this mean that players should hold off? Probably not, Pokémon fans are going to have to wait the better part of a year before Pokémon Stars comes out for the Nintendo Switch. And Pokémon will be tradeable through all three titles. And that is great since Pokémon Stars is likely to have a few new Pokémon as well. For those who already have a Nintendo 3DS it might be well worth starting their island exploration in the Alola region.
