  1. Maybe with all my money you can make a fucking Pokemon rpg for WiiU, you know that game EVERYONE has wanted for about 10 years.

    • The 3D console games didn’t take off even when they tried to, and they will continue -not- to take off.

      It’s pointless to request those and goes against the entire objective of the handheld games.

      • He’s not talking about the usual 3D console games like Stadium 1 and 2 or Battle Revolution, or even Colosseum/XD, but means an actual Pokemon game, not a spin-off, on the Wii U.

        • That won’t be an “actual” Pokemon game, it would still be a spin-off.

          The main series is and will remain strictly to handhelds, absolutely no exception. Even if they did that, it once again, goes against the entire series objective.

          Pocket Monsters.

            • Keep kidding yourself. Tell me precisely how it’s “evolved beyond that”.

              Oh, looks like the kids can’t stuff their Wii Us inside of their pockets and whip out the game when they want to trade with their friends. Amongst other things, but you can see where this is going.

    • Would be nice, but nothing like PBR or PokePark, actual free roaming doing battles, capturing Pokemon, entering to Events and competitions of all sorts like Pokemon Dance Theartre, Pokemon Athlete Statium, Pokemon League Challenges where you’re facing off agains’t different opponents in a tier tourney board ranking, beat one opponent, move onto the next round towards the finals, and using Pokemon from DS games on them if you wish or the ones you’ve caught and trained in the game itself.

      Game-Link between DS and the WiiU Game so you can unlock additional bonuses, like rare items, Pokemon of the sorts.

        • The thing is, it doesnt even have to be the 8 gym battle formula. Make it more of an adventure like FF, or other JRPG’s, id actually prefer that.

          • Many would, but it will propably never happen as pokémon always stay strict to their formula… A pokémon MMORPG would be nice aswell… Sadly, they will never do it.

          • Merge together multiple regions, Kanto, Jhoto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova. Collect all the Gym Badges, from each and every one till you have all 40, then even having the option of creating a Gym for people to challenge you! :D

            • A new region would be better, and just have a battle arena to fight old gym leaders to gain badges, re-using old regions would be lame, would be the 3rd time Kanto and Johto got remade

            • Do you know how hard that would be, because in all the regions the trainers have pokemon ranging from Lv 2-60 (usually through the first run and including Gyms and the League) Also by the time you would be done the 3rd region your party would probably be 100 or so, and the remaining game would be way too easy.

  2. Pokemon Company is just a brand for things related to Pokemon, They don’t make the games, they are just for copyright purposes.

    • Pretty self-explanatory … but thanks for clearing that up for the sole person in the entire fucking galaxy who may not have worked it out for themselves.

  6. Well, I guess Pokemon is big enough to have its own slice since that’s the name of the series as opposed to the name of the company.
