Just two weeks ago, Pokémon for Switch was still listed another time by Nintendo. The company listed it as “Untitled Pokémon RPG“, officially set for “2018 or later“.
There wasn’t much more information about it, but Twitter user Pixelpar (who previously anticipated The Raven for Nintendo Switch) wrote this info:
Looks like the initial European translations for Pokemon Switch are planned to be completed between April – June. They will the undergo localisation editing. Editors are being hired on a minimum 6 Month contract.

It seems that the info found by Pixelpar comes from this hiring site where we can read the info:
Localisation Editor (6 month minimum contract) – Spanish
Location: London, United Kingdom
Job Code: 522
# of Openings: 1
We will be looking for a Localisation Editor in the coming months for Spanish.
The Localisation Editor (6 -month fixed term contract minimum) is a member of the editing team and works closely with the other localisation editors, translators and project coordinators on all editorial facets of video games, and related materials (video game strategy guide, video game web site etc.) in Spanish. This will include a high level of knowledge regarding native slang, phraseologies, and nuances in Spanish.
Pokemon Sun/Moon translation began on early January, so we could really see this new Pokémon game for Nintendo Switch from this summer onwards.
