Following closely behind the supposed leaks of the titles of Nintendo Switch’s upcoming Pokémon games, two domain name registrations suggest the rumors might actually be true.

According to users on ResetEra, CSC Corporate Domains recently registered and acquired domains for pokemonletsgoeevee.com and pokemonletsgopikachu.com. These raise a red flag because both names—Pokémon Let’s Go! Eevee Edition and Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu Edition—were recently alleged to be the titles of the upcoming mainline Pokémon games for Switch. As seen in the tweet below from Pokekalos, CSC acquired the domains on May 15th.

While it’s unclear if Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, or Game Freak registered for the sites, Serebii has verified CSC is the same company Nintendo used to register the official sites for Pokémon Sun and Moon. Currently, visiting the Eevee or Pikachu site leads to a blank page, but that’s not entirely uncommon for games that haven’t been officially announced yet. However, it’s possible the URLs were registered by someone completely unrelated to the development of the upcoming Switch title, possibly looking for a way to fuel a hoax or capitalize on the rumored titles.

The rumors around the Pikachu and Eevee names began on May 15th when a series of supposed leaks surfaced online. Two possible logos for the games were spotted on 4chan, which now match the newly acquired domain names. Former reporter Emily Rogers also stated in a recent blog post that the naming of the new games would “raise a few eyebrows” due to their stark difference from past mainline Pokémon games. She even posed the idea that the new entries could have a direct connection to Niantic’s Pokémon Go through a new add-on device.

While many of the details that have been circulating lately might not amount to anything, the connections between them are hard to ignore. If anything is true, it’s likely that Nintendo or Game Freak will provide more details about the mysterious game, either through a surprise Direct, presentation at the upcoming E3, or something else entirely.
