During an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Ishihara confirmed the information regarding Pokémon Nintendo NX games to be true, putting all rumors to rest. The affiliation between the two companies has allowed Nintendo to obtain the licensing agreement to Pokémon characters, adding to the evidence that NX will see Pokémon games in the future.

However, it's unclear at this point in time as to whether or not the Pokémon games will be brand new adventures, or simple upgrades from the previous original seen on older generation platforms.
