Good Pokémon GO Joke, Square Enix Montreal

Here's a cheeky tweet from the makers of Lara Croft GO, a very good mobile game and successor to Hitman GO. Those games both come from Square Enix Montreal and now share a suffix with the upcoming and completely unrelated mobile game Pokémon GO from Niantic, The Pokémon Company and Nintendo.

My joke about future Nintendo games adopting suffixes from Square Enix games got some clever responses/suggestions from folks on Twitter, including:
