Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon - Game Freak on why the game isn't on Switch

This comes a GameSpot interview with Game Freak’s Shigeru Ohmori...

''We’ve been working with the 3DS hardware since Pokemon X and Y. Even then we wanted to get the maximum power and maximum potential out of the 3DS, and ever since then we’ve continued to try [to do] that. With X and Y we thought we’d got as much as we could out, but then Sun and Moon came along and we pushed even harder and got as much as we could out of the system at that time. And now, again, with Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, we’ve tried to make this the pinnacle of our work with the 3DS system and make it a culmination of all our efforts to get the absolute most out of the system that we can.''

More like because
Pokemon Crystal wasn't on GBA because Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire were already in development
Pokemon Emerald wasn't on DS because Pokemon Diamond & Pearl were already in development
Pokemon Black & White 2 wasn't on 3DS because Pokemon X & Y were already in development
Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon isn't on Switch because Pokemon Switch is already in development

Nothing new for Game Freak.

Translation: 3DS has a super large international user base we can get massive guaranteed profits from.

I think this is the exact same story you shared earlier, Nintendaan.
Just the translation from Japanese is different.

An HD Pokémon would’ve been cool but I’ll give them a free pass considering how amazing Ultra SM look

Basically the same thing they said when b&w 2 released on the ds and not the 3ds

Well B2W2 are considered one of the best games in the series so its good news for USUM :p
