Also, this was recorded before Nintendo revealed Pokemon Let's Go Eevee/Pikachu, so we talk about it as if it's still just a rumor. But before the episode aired, Nintendo confirmed all that, and more. So yeah. We kinda goofed. But not completely.

Nintendo has been strangely quiet since E3, and their game release schedule, barring the new Zelda, only exists as far as spring next year. They've been silent on the NX. They've been silent on mobile. Yet, lately, some rumors have sprung up. What could they mean? What is the truth? We explore the possibilities and weigh in with our own speculation in this episode.
