The new RPG Pókemon Switch title that is currently in development could be revealed this week at Nintendo’s investor meeting, as per a tweet from the industry insider Marcus Sellars.
If Pókemon Switch was going to be revealed it would probably be at Nintendo's investor meeting this week.

Marcus Sellars has a reputation for being accurate with his predictions, having correctly predicted the reveal of Black Ops 4, the date of a Nintendo Direct and that Diablo 3 was in development for the Nintendo Switch.
Now he is claiming that the upcoming investor meeting at Nintendo will also hold the answer to all of our Pokemon Switch questions, at last giving us the reveal that we have all been waiting for.
The Nintendo Investor Meeting is a yearly event that happens every April, usually with the aim of letting investors know what the companies earnings were for the past fiscal year, and giving some information on what the company is set to bring over the course of the next year.
Over the years Nintendo has announced many titles during, or just before, their investor meetings at this time of the year. Animal Crossing New Leaf, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and Yoshi’s New Island have all been announced around this time in the past. In fact, in 2014, they even announced Pókemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in a Nintendo Direct just before the earnings call.
Usually, the games that are announced by Nintendo around their Investor calls are summarily released toward the end of the same year, for example, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were both launched in November 2014 after they were announced at a Nintendo Direct before the earnings call.
When these games were revealed it wasn’t really much to get excited over. They just showed the classic Pókemon catchphrase “Gotta catch em’ all” and the box arts for the games.
This all comes after a recent leak from PokeJungle, which was then alluded to by the official Project Evee account on Twitter. The leaked image showed a pokemon trainer riding atop a Lapras with other wild Pokemon roaming about. Not only that, the image seems to feature the much-requested return of the following Pokemon mechanic, as the trainers Eevee sits on top of his head.
This all could be an elaborate hoax, as the original PokeJungle report states, and the Pokemon community is still intensely debating that fact. It remains to be seen what exactly we will be receiving on Switch in terms of the next Pokemon title, but if Marcus Sellars is to be believed we won’t be waiting for long.
