The Pokemon Company, which gave the world the cult animated series, is looking for an employee with experience in Web3, NFT and metaverse. This may indicate that the studio is preparing to enter a new market.
According to vacanciesThe applicant must, among other things, possess the following qualities:
“Deep knowledge and understanding of Web3, including blockchain technology and NFT. Close ties, as well as a client base in the mentioned fields of activity.
The vacancy is called “Director of Corporate Development”. It is quite possible that the studio does not even have a team yet, and its collection will be the first task of the head of the new department.
The salary, by the way, is promised at the level of $150,000 to $224,000, including insurance and vacation pay. The company will also provide the applicant with a relocation package and compensate for the costs of health improvement, fitness and training.
The news received mixed reactions from fans. Most commented on it in a negative way, noting that the studio can not bring to mind the recently released Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

The company has not yet commented on the situation. But the vacancy is still active, which means that a suitable person has not yet been found. And there, who knows, maybe the studio will actually release its own collection.
