Nintendo didn't have have any screenshots or gameplay to offer during its presentation, but The Pokémon Company did confirm the next original, core Pokémon game will be for Switch and is currently in development.

The president and CEO of The Pokémon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara, appeared on the Spotlight presentation to deliver the news. Ishihara said the game is in development for Switch, but it won't be releasing this year.

Last week, Nintendo had to clarify that its upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are 3DS exclusives and will not be coming to Switch after a "clerical error". Whatever this game ultimately becomes, it will be for Switch.
