You are now again pushing your narrative and passing over strong points and facts. Strong points and facts like fact that Nintendo merged their home console hardware and handheld hardware divisions, and fact they merged their home console software and handheld software divisions, fact that Nintendo talked and admitted they can't any more support effectively two different platforms, fact that Switch is already handheld in same time and point there is no reason at all to release another handheld platform or to continue with DS line alongside Switch. You basically deny all this facts and strong points that all point that almost certain Nintendo will not release different handheld platform or continue with DS line and that instead we will have Switch Mini/Pocket.
And like @RolStoppable wrote: "When Pokémon Ultra Sun/Moon was announced, you were quick to beat the drum of Switch not being the successor to both the Wii U and 3DS. A week later the next big Pokémon title was announced for Switch, but apparently that doesn't count as evidence for there not being a separate 3DS successor". That really tells alot about you and your narrative.
Man this is ridiculous. I've never denied any of the actual facts you posted above, but some of the things you posted above are actually your opinion. But that's par for the course for the likes of you - treating your opinion as facts and expecting others to. There are many ways to interpret the actual facts you posted above that actually do lead to Nintendo releasing a 3DS successor, but you refuse to accept that possibility, and then have the audacity to say that I am in denial? Don't kid yourself. Your interpretation of the facts is just that - your interpretation. It is in no way the only way to interpret them, despite what your arrogant authoritarian posturing suggests.
As for what RolStoppable wrote, again that's more hyperbolic bullshit. I never said that the Switch isnt the successor to the Wii U and 3DS. I've never once made that claim in spite many of you claim I have. I simply laughed how many of you thought it was so fucking obvious that Nintendo was announcing a core pokemon game for the Switch in that Direct. Sorrynotsorry for rubbing your shit-eating arrogance in your faces, because it's obvious to anyione that the collective lot of you don't know nearly as much as you think you do when it comes to Nintendo, yet you continue to act like you know everything, and anyone who dares question you is an ignorant pleeb. The first actual legitimate evidence that there may not be a 3DS successor was the core pokemon announcement at E3, and even then, that might not turn out to be the game you think it is. Of course, once again, this is yet another example of arrogant exclamations that your interpretation of the fact is the only possible correct one. But let's not let reality get in the way of your fucking tunnel vision.
I mean what the fuck happens if Nintendo actually comes out and announces a 3DS successor? You, and the others on this site that act like such authorities on all things Nintendo what I wrote might as well commit seppuku in front of Nintendo's headquarters, because you and I both know there's no coming back from that. You might as well quit the site if that day comes.
