A couple of Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite games have reportedly been leaked, courtesy of GameStop. Amid rumors that Nintendo will end February successfully and that this year’s mainline Pokemon The games will be revealed this week, a prominent leaker has relayed the news that GameStop has updated its internal database with two new contiguous $ 59.99 Switch SKUs, or in other words, two Nintendo Switch games. What these games could be is anyone’s best guess, but the most obvious answer is that these are two new Pokemon games, rumored to be remakes of Diamond and Pearl.
To reinforce the claim, the leaker, Pokemon Center, provides an image of the SKUs, although at this time there is no way to validate the image. It was sent to the source by a GameStop employee, but this wouldn’t be the first time an image of this variety has been faked. On a superficial level, it passes the sniff test, but so have many other fakes in the past.
You can see the image for yourself below, again courtesy of the Pokemon Center:
Tidbit from a GameStop employee:
Apparently two new contiguous $ 59.99 Switch SKUs were recently added to GameStop. While we can’t know if they are related to Pokémon, it is certainly intriguing.
In the past, we’ve seen GameStop add SKUs shortly before announcements. pic.twitter.com/jcyotL4BYS

For now, take everything here with a grain of salt. Not only is nothing here official, but even if the info and image are good, all it reveals is that GameStop added two Nintendo Switch games to its database recently. These Switch games could be for Pokemon, but they could also be for much less exciting titles.
At the time of publication, none of the parties involved, Nintendo or GameStop, have commented on the leak in any way. If this changes, we will make sure to update the story with whatever is provided.
