Masuda: Let's Go Pokémon is not a spin-off, future integration of Pokémon GO

The director and composer of the Pokémon series, Junichi Masuda, silences all the voices that want Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! not being part of the main line of the pocket monsters series. Masuda is the director and general producer of the two Nintendo Switch titles; this time, however, the soundtrack does not bear his signature.

Pokémon Let's Go

In an interview that appears in the strategic guide dedicated to the two Let’s Go, Masuda is sibylline: ” Let’s Go are not spin-offs, they are considered full-fledged major titles “, thus, like chapters like Pokémon Silver, Platinum or the most recent Sun and Moon, for example.

Masuda also talked about the possible implementation of Pokémon GO in future titles, explaining that if the mechanics will be well received through Let’s Go they will think about “integrating it to the chapters that will come” . The fate of Pokémon Go will essentially be decided by the reaction of the fans to the new title Switch, which is a first experiment of mixing between the mobile game and the historical titles of the Nintendo portable consoles .

In short, Masuda and The Pokémon Company put the Let’s Go Pokémon on the same level with the other titles, trying to move the undecided and legitimizing in words a child considered by many to be illegitimate.
