Pokemon Sword & Shield players have claimed they discovered the names of the alleged Black & White remakes.

Rumors surrounding the development of Pokemon Black & White remakes have existed since the release of Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. Before the updated Gen 4 games, Pokemon created remakes like HeartGold & SoulSilver and Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.

Considering Gen 5 is the next to receive an enhanced version, Black & White remakes should hopefully be on the horizon.

With the radio silence surrounding Black & White reboots, players have searched for possible teasers. Now, trainers are convinced Sword & Shield teased the remakes’ future titles.

Pokemon leaker SoulSilverArt posted that several people have sent them a picture from Sword & Shield. The image includes an NPC asking whether players want the “Sparking White” or “Glistening Black” bike design.

Consequently, some trainers assumed these names could be the title of the Black & White remakes.

“It’s a fun idea, but I don’t think there’s anything really to it, SoulSilverArt wrote. “GF doesn’t normally tease remakes so far in advance-like this would be a whole 3(& a DLC) games before we might actually get BW remakes.”

Additionally, Sword & Shield players previously pointed out how one room in Circhester’s Hotel Ionia possibly teased Scarlet & Violet. The wallpaper displayed oranges and grapes – a prominent symbol of the Gen 9 games for Naranja and Uva Academy. The Spanish translation of Naranja and Uva is orange and grape.

While Scarlet & Violet takes place in Mediterranean Spain, some believe Pokemon hinted at the location for the Gen 10 games. In Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, the Game Director in the Sinnoh remakes greets players with “Ciao,” the Italian word for hello and goodbye.
