While it’s correct that fact GameFreak are the ones working on the upcoming mainline Pokemon game for Switch, there’s still the possibility that Creatures are helping with development (and this isn’t surprising really, since Xenoblade developer Monolith Soft also aided Nintendo’s EPD studio with development on Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild).
