I was thinking of that, but it said "surprise collaboration" almost sounds as if it's a game that Gamefreak hasn't worked on by themselves, and will use their skills as game developers to make it something new.I'm hoping at least a few people remember Drill Dozer. I could see, very, very loosely, that silhouette resembling Jill in the Drill Dozer. As I recall, Drill Dozer was released worldwide to extremely positive reception and won several awards. That was also roughly eight years ago. I could now see GF rebooting this series for a newer audience.
I'm not entirely sure how a Harvest Moon X Pokemon crossover would work, unless it was primarily Harvest Moon, but with Pokemon themes, including some Pokemon.What about the possibility of it being related to the Tamagotchi franchise? I don't know. This is just a random guess.
It would be cool to see a Pokémon version of Harvest Moon.
