If that's the case NX will be a purchase, but not sure if it's day-1.

Report: Nintendo will have a new NX Mario and Pokemon within 'six months' of launch, in addition to Zelda

According to MCV, Nintendo isn't going to let the NX slog out of the gate like the Wii U and 3DS did -- at least when it comes to heavy-hitters.

The site reports that Nintendo has not only secured strong third-party support from WB, Activision, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and Sega (where have we heard that before?), but it's also going to make a big first-party push too, in addition to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Apparently, Game Freak is developing a new Pokemon game for the system, as well as a new Mario.

Mario was a given for me since we haven't seen one for years and we're absolutely due, but Pokemon? People have been asking Nintendo for a proper (read: not a spinoff or "arena" title) console Pokemon game for nearly two decades, so that could be really interesting, and make a huge impact on NX sales. Unless of course, it's a spinoff or an arena game for X & Y.

As a reminder, the last batch of NX rumors suggest that it has detachable controllers, and will allow the use of some smartphone games. I cant' wait to see what this thing looks like!

It's not gonna be a mainline pokemon and it won't be made by game freak. So, the pokemon part is a bit misleading.

Where did you read that? Because the article says it's being developed by game freak, even if it's just a rumor mill article.

Because pokemon sun and moon is coming our this fall and game freak never made an HD game. So, its incredible unlikely.

It's very likely the NX Pokemon game is an enhance port of Pokemon Sun & Moon.
