Nintendo Should Make a Pokémon Game for iOS

Nintendo is a company in trouble. Last week, it warned investors to expect a massive loss for this financial year. Its share price tumbled. The loss was no aberration.

Unless they make spinoffs only, like a pokemon snap or a pokemon puzzle only game , keeping the main Pokemon games on 3ds and hopefully wii u

No, even spin-offs would provide a mental bridge for people to start believing that the main line is perfect for mobile.
We don't need those kinds of thoughts circulating.

Besides, a Pokemon Snap game would make excellent use of the Game Pad as a camera, so there's no way that should go on a phone first, let alone ever at all.XD

not happening. They will make companion apps like PokeDex.

Hope it don't happen 1 because I don't own an iPhone and 2 because I want Nintendo games to stay on Nintendo consoles.
