A new leak of Pokemon Gen VII games shows that Game Freak has plans for new XY games at some point.
This is Nintendo̵7;s new release time and this one is a doozy, as a leak build for Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon has confirmed that Game Freak is planning on the next or updated version for Pokemon X & Y.
There have been a number of Nintendo releases over the past few years and no series has been hit harder than Pokemon. It began with the release of Pokemon Gold & Silver of 2018, which revealed an early development development from Spaceworld ’97 full of unused Pokemon designs. This was followed by a very early development of Pokemon Red & Green, which was also full of unused Pokemon designs. Since then, there have been more releases of Pokemon Gold and Silver, as well as an early leak of Pokemon Diamond & Pearl.

A series of builds for Pokemon Sun & Moon and Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon have leaked online and they are currently enjoyed by fans. MrCheeze announced on Twitter the PokemonVersion.h user file that has been updated since the days of Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire. The list contains entries for games called “CalosReserve3” and “CalosReserve4”, which are placed after Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire and before Pokemon Sun & Moon. Internal values for Pokemon indicate the presence of these games in the past, as confirmed by Bulbapedia.
The PokemonVersion.h file, obviously still comes from the original Pokemon Sapphire and Ruby.
It looks like it really is NOT the source of the Sun and Moon, it is Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon (“momiji”). pic.twitter.com/WLu6rLJX2K

This release indicates that Game Freak has more plans for the Kalos region than it did. Game Freak has a trademark named “Pokemon Z”, so it is possible that new games may be based on Zygarde, which is a Legendary Pokemon that appeared in the Kalos region. Zygarde has an expanded role in Pokemon Sun & Moon, as players can hunt individual cells. It is possible that plans for the Zygarde storyline were pushed to the Alola region when the new Kalos games were removed.
It is not clear how far along these Kalos games are formed, or why they are canned. We know that Game Freak will sometimes cancel games very early in development and never discuss them publicly, as happened with Pokemon Pink. We will probably not know more about these games, but it will be interesting to know that Game Freak has more plans for the Kalos region at some point in time.
