Nintendo Files Two ‘Pikachu’ Trademarks

Pokemon game series has held a special place in fans’ hearts for over 25 years now, and one of the main reasons Pokemon games have stayed relevant is the constant creation of new and varied content. Whether it be an app that helps children sleep or Pokémon Go.

The franchise is always looking for its next extensive hit. Besides an enormous and devoted fanbase, The Pokemon franchise has kept itself connected over the years by rarely taking any break between new pieces of content.

Fans who want even more Pokemon content may be in good luck, as a new trademark suggests a possible new game could be in development.

There is mention of video games in the trademark filings, indicating that a possible spin-off, a choice-based game centered around Pikachu, could be in the works.

Bearing in mind that this year’s Pokemon franchise already has multiple ongoing projects, it is unlikely that, if a “Pikachu” game is on its way, fans will see it any time shortly. Whatever this “Pikachu” Trademark produces, Pokemon fans will likely want to keep an eye out for what comes next for the franchise’s most iconic character.

For those unfamiliar with Trademark, a trademark can be any word, phrase, symbol, design, or combination of these things that identifies your goods or services. It’s how customers recognize you in the marketplace and distinguish you from your competitors.
