A new mobile Pokemon game may be in the works

An advert for a job opening suggests a new Pokemon mobile game might be on its way.

There’s s been no official announcement, but a major new role has appeared on The Pokemon Company’s LinkedIn page.

The studio is looking for a full-time principal game designer for an unnamed upcoming mobile game at its Bellevue, Washington office.

Good job

“The Principal Game Designer will work within a team of designers, engineers, artists, producers, and tester to create an upcoming mobile game,” reads the LinkedIn job description.

“This candidate will spend a lot of time coordinating with both Studio leadership and individual contributors and must have fantastic people skills.”

There’s certainly precedent for mobile Pokemon success, following the franchise’s roots on GameBoy and Nintendo DS. AR phenomenon Pokemon Go brought in revenue over $80 million in November alone.

Not keen on playing Pokemon games but still looking for a creature-fighting fix? There's always Ryan Reynolds' smart-mouthed Detective Pikachu in cinemas next year.
