The Pokémon Company is reportedly exploring the possibility of bringing its popular monster-battling franchise to the blockchain. The company, which is a joint venture between Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures, recently posted a job listing for a Corporate Development Principal who would advise the company’s leadership on strategy and explore new innovations.

According to the listing, the ideal candidate would have “deep knowledge and understanding of Web3, including blockchain technologies and NFT, and/or metaverse.” The company is specifically looking for someone who is already immersed in the Web3 world and can help guide the company’s entry into the space.

While The Pokémon Company has not made any official announcements regarding its plans for the blockchain, the job listing suggests that the company is at least considering the possibility. Other developers have attempted to bring the Pokémon concept to the blockchain with mixed results, but the involvement of the franchise’s own creators could lead to a more successful implementation.

Fans of the franchise have long speculated about the potential for Pokémon on the blockchain, with some envisioning a game that allows players to collect and battle NFT versions of their favorite monsters. If The Pokémon Company does indeed move forward with blockchain integration, it could open up a whole new world of possibilities for the beloved franchise.
