On one hand, version exclusives are a series staple and it makes the company more money then one version. On the other hand, the single game on Switch is the same price as the two 3DS versions.

No.

Pokemon has always been a pair of games, to encourage trade between players. That won't change, with the new games.

I mean, Gamefaqs has trading boards for a reason. :p

Nah. Gotta keep the forced trade gimmick for no reason whatsoever instead of letting players go out and catch all the Pokemon in one game.
You felt your sins weighing down on your neck.

Yes. $120 for both games then $60 the year after for the "definitive" version :P

Do we even know if the planned Pokemon game will be a main game title like XY/SunMoon or a spinoff like Stadium/Colosseum, yet?

I can't help but think it will likely be the latter.

It was literally stated at E3, a main Pokémon title.

It's a good question TC, the two versions are a series staple and I could easily see it continuing, but at the same time going to a singular version would be just as profitable for them.

Personally I see two versions, with Switch-themed bundles.

That gimmick is half the fun of Pokemon.

Yeah, I love arbitrarily not being able to get all the Pokemon because they leave 20 pokemon out of a version to force trading. It's really fun and engaging for the player.
