The immensely popular Pokémon franchise recently made a splash in the mobile market with Pokémon Shuffle (originally released on 3DS), and last month it made a tidal wave with the announcement of Pokémon GO. It looks like a lot more mobile-based Pokémon games could be on the way, as Takashi Mochizuki, a Tokyo tech reporter at The Wall Street Journal, reports that Pokémon developer Game Freak has purchased Koa Games, a mobile developer. Last month we learned that future Pokémon spin-offs could come to mobile, and it looks like Game Freak is getting serious about the idea. We'll be on the lookout for more details about this acquisition and what it means for the future of Pokémon.
