A new leak of Pokemon Gen VII games shows that Game Freak had plans for new XY games at some point.
It’s new Nintendo leak time and this one is a doozy, as a leaked build for Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon has confirmed that Game Freak was planning on sequels or updated versions for Pokemon X & AND.
There have been a number of Nintendo leaks over the past few years and no series has been hit harder by this than Pokemon. It started with the Pokemon Gold & Silver leaks of 2018, which revealed an early development build from Spaceworld ’97 that was filled with unused Pokemon designs. This was followed by an extremely early build of Pokemon Red & Green, which was also filled with unused Pokemon designs. Since then, there have been even more Pokemon Gold & Silver leaks, as well as an early leak of Pokemon Diamond & Pearl.
A series of development builds for Pokemon Sun & Moon and Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon have leaked online and they are currently being sifted through by fans. MrCheeze on Twitter has revealed the PokemonVersion.h file that uses that has been updated since the days of Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire. The list has entries for games called “CalosReserve3” and “CalosReserve4”, which are placed after Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire and before Pokemon Sun & Moon. The internal values for Pokemon have hinted at the existence of these games in the past, as confirmed on Bulbapedia.

This leak suggests that Game Freak had more plans for the Kalos region than came to pass. Game Freak had one trademarked the name “Pokemon Z”, so it’s possible that these new games could have focused on Zygarde, which is a Legendary Pokemon that appeared in the Kalos region. Zygarde had an expanded role in Pokemon Sun & Moon, as players could hunt its individual cells. It’s possible that the plans for the Zygarde storyline were pushed forward to the Alola region when the new Kalos games were scrapped.
It’s unclear how far along these Kalos games made it into the development, or why they were canned. We know that Game Freak will sometimes cancel games very early in development and never discuss them publically, as was the case with Pokemon Pink. It’s unlikely that we will learn more about these games, but it’s interesting to learn that Game Freak had more plans for the Kalos region at one point in time.
