    1. Yeah, those games story are way more interesting and touching than the normal pokemon games still really hoping for pokemon gray though.

    2. I hope they do make another one….in 3D :p They are really good though, their story is always nice, the music is nice, the challenge is really nice, but a lot of people are stupid and never played them.

    3. Series has untapped potential, that’s about it.

      Enough with the spin offs for now, though, please.

      I don’t think it will be gray today just cuz that other rts title is in the works..

    1. I doubt they’ll actually name it Grey/Gray – it’s too predictable and most of the Internet expects it. Naming the game something people wouldn’t expect works better for creating commotion and hype.

      But honestly, I want a Ruby/Sapphire remake…

  1. if this announcement sucks cock. i will fly to japan, find his mother, take her out for a nice seafood dinner, AND NEVER CALL AGAIN!

      1. Except from Ranger, Mystery dungeon, Pinball, Dash, Trozei!, Rumble, Puzzle league, Pokepark, Snap, Channel, + Nobunaga’s Ambition….

    1. Actually the Pokemon Pinball games are quite nice, and with the advanced capabilities of the 3DS with 3D, and advanced graphics, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a Pokemon Pinball….I have new hope thanks to you…all i’m hoping…is no Grey.

      1. Well, GameFreak would still have to have a say in it, and it would generate more hype if they were to announce it themselves.

  2. It’s gonna be stuff about Keldp and the new movie they are making. Don’t expect anything “big” guy, cause they might get crushed. :(

    Too early for Pokemon Grey.

    1. You do realize if Gray’s announced now, it’ll come in Sept for Japan right? Meaning B/W will be 2 years old there. That’s not “too soon. Its the same gap between D/P and Plat.

      1. Yes, I do realize that. But you also have to know that Pokemon Grey (if it’s for 3DS) won’t use the same engine, same graphics, and the same ideas they used in B/W. My theory is, when they made Pokemon Platinum, they ported Diamond or Peal, changed it up a bit to add new Pokemon and new locations. But now they are going to have to start from sratch. Grey might have been in production for a long time, IDK about that. But it’s going to take about another year for the announcement of Grey.

        1. We don’t know for sure if it’ll be a 3DS title or not. If it isn’t, then there’s no ground up work needed. Which may be the best for them right now. Have Gray be a simple recoding of B/W while they work on R/S remakes for 3DS. Could give them enough time.

        2. Gamefreak was the first developer to receive 3DS dev kits, meaning they were working on something prior to 3DS release in Japan (1 year ago).
          So even if the announcement ISN’T Gray or R/S remakes, we can expect them to announce a 3DS Pokemon game in the coming months anyway.

        3. They’re just going to increase the resolution, alot of the terrain in pokemon B/W looks like it was designed with 3D in mind

        4. When I first played my White Version, I noticed something – the game’s very design is practically set up to be ready to be ported to 3D.

          It can’t be an announcement about the movie since this guy is the director at GameFreak, not TVTokyo or Shopro or the other companies that help develop the anime.

          They already have the 3D models ready for use from Pokedex3D, so it’s very likely that they’re going to announce a “Grey/Gray” or a RS remake.

      2. You might not consider this to be too early, and it really isn’t ridiculously early, for this will happen soon no matter what happens, but B/W was announced in late April 2010, HG/SS was announced in mid-May 2009, and Platinum was announced in mid-May 2008. All within 20 days of each other, skipping some years in Pokemon’s usual manner. Right now, it is the end of February. We need 2 months, and also, idk if Pokemon Smash has had a chance to hype up Keldeo as the movie’s secret Pokemon. I suspect that this might be what tonight’s announcement might be all about.

  3. We were let down the past two times… I don’t see this being any different… if anything it will probaly be about Keledo.

  4. Looking forward to it. I hope it’s the announcement of an open world pokemon game in the vein of GTA for Wii U. It can be a MMO like WOW. If Nintendo ever did this, and did it right, it would be a major money maker. I’ve always imagine an open Pokemon world where you walk around the 3D world, going through the tall grass to catch wild pokemon, headbutting trees to catch specific ones (Heracross ftw!), surfing across the ocean on the back of your favourite pokemon.

    Leave luck to heaven.

  5. Come on! Nintendo Hyped up the USA, Japan and Europe conference (Nintendo Direct) the other day, for nothing. This will be something pointless or an announcement to say there will be news regarding Keldeo in a few weeks time!

  6. In 4th Gen, the event Pokemon didn’t come out until Platinum was out. The first one was the Members Card less than 6 months later

  7. You guys are IDIOTS, WTF do you want remakes for that cursed console why can’t it be something new and fresh! ITS ALREADY THAT SUPER MARIO 3D LAND IS ALMOST SUPER MARIO LAND THE OLD ONE AND OOT (OCARINA OF TIME) IS ALSO A DAMN REMAKE! AND NOW YOU WANT POKEMON GREY OR YELLOW! CURSE


      1. Super mario 3D land is not like the other lands thats what i hate about Super mario 3D land its not land 2 or 1 the other lands had other bosses but in this game you keep kicking bowers ass and his fat koopa friends no power ups from Super mario land 1 or 2 its more like Super mario 3 2

    2. QUIT TROLLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and do you realize how much a pokemon remake would sell

  8. Wait, its 7:30AM that time ill be at school cuz i live in japan WELL ATLEASAT I GET TO MEET HIM…on tv, ill not go to school tomorrow! YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  9. I’m hoping for Snap, Mystery Dungeon, Gray, or Yellow. Stadium/Colluseum will be for WiiU. since pkmn games come out in Sept, I bet WiiU Pkmn will be a launch title & can link w/ 3DS pkmn

  10. If it should happen to be Pokemon “Gray”, I doubt it will be for the 3DS.
    If you look back, you’ll see that every 3rd game of a generation was on the same system like the other two. Like, Emerald was on GBA, like Ruby and Sapphire; Platinum was on the NDS, like Diamon and Pearl; Crystal was on GBC, like Gold and Silver. I doubt they will change that, so I guess that the Gray version (IF there will be a gray version) will be on the regular DS.

      1. I’m not quite sure what you mean by “… that every system had only ONE Pokemon game”.
        I mean, even the GBA had 2 different Pokemon games: Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald and LeafGreen/FireRed. So did the DS with Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, HeartGold/SoulSilver and Black/White (if that’s what you meant).
        And as it just got announced, it seems like the 3rd game will be on the DS indeed, like the previous 2 games of that generation. It just is the pattern Gamefreak or Nintendo (or whoever is responsible for it) follows, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to change for now.

  11. Pokemon Grey for 3DS? Mindblown of awesomeness!!!
    Pokemon Grey for DS? Still mindblown of awesomeness for DS and 3DS owners!!!
    Remake of 3rd Generation games? Everybody mindblowns!!!

      1. FR/LG came before Emerald. Could go either way here. Albeit its leaning quite heavily towards Gray with the Kyurem movie.

  12. You guys are missing something a little obvious that this could be, Red/Blue/Yellow on the eShop that use the wireless connections of the 3DS to trade Pokemon. Don’t say that they don’t add things to VC games, cause they did add the Wii message board thing to Pokemon Snap. Whose to say they wouldn’t add wireless to R/B/Y? Oh yeah, and you would be able to upload your Pokemon to future Pokemon games on 3DS. I don’t even play Pokemon anymore, but this seems like a good idea if it happened.

    1. Actually it does, but to put R/B/Y on the eShop, they would need to add a few more features…like 3D for example? :p

  13. youdon'tcareaboutmyname

    if it’s not grey, then it’s the entire trailer for their new movie. Pokemon 15…

    i hope new ruby and sapphire remakes on the 3ds

  14. “Ladies and gentlemen we can now confirm that the sixth generation of Pokemon games will be released on Tuesday in all regions and will contain 500 new Pokemon.”

  15. I can’t be the only one who was very much reminded of Pokemon Snap with Face Raiders on the 3DS…

    Not to mention that Nintendogs could lead to another Hey You Pikachu, but this time Pikachu’d understand words

  16. Ruby and Sapphire remake please! Not very interested in “Pokemon Grey”, didn’t enjoy Generation V that much :/

      1. Sorry, I tried downloading it and couldn’t find Tokyo TV, and the program looked a bit iffy on my computer anyway. Any other ideas?

        (I’m the same guy, just forgot to put in my details before :p)

  17. Either it would be:

    Pokémon Gray – I wanna let it happen.

    Pokémon RS Remakes – PLEASE GOD.

    New spin-off – Wouldn’t mind. I wish it was PMD.

    Pokémon RBGY on 3D Classics – PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN, IF IT CAN.

    1. Grey may happen, we’ll found out in about 1 and 1/2 hours, that’s when it airs.

      I agree too, Ruby/Sapphire remakes should happen.

      Spin off, depends which one. (Pokemon Snap 2, Mystery Dungeon 3, Pokemon Stadium 3, new one, etc)

      Red, Blue, and Yellow won’t come out as 3D Classics. There were only going to be 6 3D Classics, and they all have been announced. They regular versions might come out for Virtual Console though.

  18. I honestly do NOT think it’ll be the third version. Too soon. All the other third versions for past gens came out TWO years after the first two.

    1. But the games are usually revealed early in the year and then released in September in Japan and in this September it would be 2 years since it was released in Japan but it could be 3rd Gen remakes which I’m hoping for!
