>He thinks we're getting Gen 8 in 2018
Unless GameFreak rushes it completely, it won't happen. USUM isn't even out yet and the hardware shift from the 3DS to the Switch is a major one, they won't have the time to finish USUM and the first games of Gen 8 in a year and a half's time.>B-But GameFreak already announced that they were making core pokemon RPGs for the Switch so they must be coming out soon.
Diamond and Pearl were announced two years before they were launched so that doesn't mean a damn thing. The only sole reason they announced it at E3 was for damage control from the backlash USUM got for being on the 3DS.https://web.archive.org/web/20041208021724/http://www.serebii.net:80/diamondpearl/>B-but we need SOMETHING on the Switch
Gen 7 doesn't have a mystery dungeon yet, so it will most definitely come out on Switch before Gen 8 does.
