    1. Considering how Junichi Masuda that MMO wouldn’t fit in a pokémon game and the fact the game is marketed toward children.

      I am going with that it’s a big fat no.

      1. Hmmm, iffy on the “marketed toward children” part, but he definitely did something along those lines of an MMO not being proper for a Pokémon Game. The article does, however, make the game seem like it’s going to have some kind of MMO aspect to it.

    1. New battle systems are fine.
      Come on, we’ve been using the 4 moves turned based for 5 generations now, time to spice things up

      1. but its going to change the way competitive battling is right now. It took me 4 generations to actually master and learn pro strategies.

          1. Is it worth learning the strategies? Will it make me beat everyone that doesn’t use them or will it only give me a slight advantage?

            1. If you want to get into competitive battling, then yes. If not, then you can forget evs and ivs and all that fancy stuff. And even if you do battle online, the type of pokemon and their moves and the order of your party can mean winning or losing

        1. How? Each gen has added new additions, for natures, to EV training, different move effect, the Power abilities, its impossilble for you to have “mastered” it. And even if you did, dont you want the challenge and excitment of learning something new again?

      2. Same surf ice beam hydro pump crunch then i have to get rid of one to learn hydro cannon if only just 1 more i loved triple battles maybe 4 pokemon on 4

    2. By “new battle structure” they meant how the battle is now is in 3D, rather than changing the battle mechanic.

      They aren’t changing anything.

      1. new moves and abilities is inevitable though, some of these could have a varying effects on the battle structures

    1. i don’t really think so. once we’ve got actual details, we can talk about them. until then, its just marketing-talk.

    1. What I thought by that is they will most likely turn Pokemon cards into AR cards and who knows maybe have AR battles? I think that a feature like that would be worth the full price alone. Maybe they could also use Augmented Reality for when the anime is on TV……..idk at this point.

      1. set of 6 cards given to you in the box. ot if they arse felling really greedy each card has a diffrent pokemon on it you have to buy all 700+

    2. Well i thin they’ll do an amine spin off series, we all know how people went nuts over the Black/White 2 anime trailer xD
      As for the card game, maybe they’ll be AR/NFC, and you can use them on the 3DS and WiiU and battle people globally? That would be a big change, seeing as Pokemon cards have always been about local battles, even i could get into that.
      Same goes for the merch as well

      1. I would love a Stadium style game for 3DS or wiiu which incororates the trading card game. So you both have to have X amount of cards which adds up to an equal strength each. Then you have to zap them into the game usung NFC or AR.

        That would be so cool….

    3. As long as it’s not CGi i don’t care if Ash is kept or not. (I have nothing against CGi just not for the main pokemon anime, maybe a spin off)

  1. Let me just translate that there marketing speak for you all
    “Everyone will enjoy the game’s scenario and music”.
    International setting and many cultural music remixes pokemon theme on accordion for France ect.

    “The game uses an innovative communication system that makes it feel as if you are playing with other players around the world.”
    Spot pass will download trainer information to provide players with battles with people all over the world
    People around the world will be able to simultaneously experience “Real Play.”
    Real play is possibly the start of A POKEMON MMO!!!!!!!
    or a AR thing stuff it I don’t know

    1. I’m curious what Real Play is myself.
      It could be an MMO type, but how do you balance out the different levels ect, and XP?

      I think it might be similar to Dark Souls, where at a certain point, your characters progression is saved onto the online servers, and when another player goes down the path you went on at the time, they battle you in the way that they were at that point.
      Of course it would probably be optional tougher battles for extra XP though.
      Thats just what i think though.

      1. Dragon your idea sounds better than mine but i dont think that is real play that sounds more like “innovative communication feature”
        real play may= the real time multiplayer mode shown subtlety in the trailer.

        1. Not necessarily. Real Play jus suggest you’re fighting a trainer who’s real, doesn’t mean it has to be in real time.
          I just find it hard to imagine pairing together people in an MMO fashion, when the levels, pokemon numbers, levels of each pokemon are always going to be different, let alone if theyre online at all. I just think the sort of Save State idea is more logical, not to mention easy to manage seeing as everyone on average would have the same level at those points, not to mention getting extra XP would make the battle more worth it. You could spend ages just standing in an area and people not wanting to battle.
          I think the MMO type thing could be half possible, maybe more of a big hall where people go into and fight each other rather than automatic match ups, although those and tournaments would be in it too.

          All i know is, i actually want rewards for beating people online xD

    2. Also after analysing the trailer i found.
      Female trainer wearing two different kinds of dresses. confurming customisation A following player who follows too far away and with a different path proving that it’s multiplayer and not an npc. witch also confirms customisation because the following player looks a complete mess.
      let’s just say this is the best pokemon ever ever ever ever ever!

    3. I was hoping something kinda like journey, when some stranger joins you randomly, it would be nice if everytime you went into a new map, some of the players that are there at the same time appear on your ds

  2. Sickr, Nyko is releasing some WiiU accessories, including a clip on external battery, the doubles the battery life, AND an internal one that replaces the existing battery, and triples the battery life of the Gamepad.

  3. >The game will utilize the Nintendo 3DS to its maximum abilities to leverage its overwhelmingly beautiful presentation.

    It better, because while the graphics were pretty, we all know the 3DS can do much better than that.

  4. Vita. Never stop playing.

    700 pokermon holy fucking shit fuck you ya catch them all i quit thats some bullshit 700 pokemons my god soon its going to reach into the thousands smh thats a sign that the franchise should be killed and that ninty fans are hardcore morons have fun catching training and doing all that bullshit when it reaches 1000. Ive used ar to cheat and hack my 3ds fuck u myamoto i know your soul cry it wont do anything im a ninty hackor and ill destroy online play for all im that asshole with infinite life wonder gaurd ya mothers warn you about. I learn my lesson as a baby i waited in line to catch surfin pikachu but after gold came out they cockblock my pikachu sob i waited in line for shit now my yellow version battery die and i lost him forever i waited in line for shit ASSHOLES same with ruby doxy so fuck ya now i hack to get my pokemon. Fuck nintendo overratedo overmilked game i bought a ps3 and yugioh a real mans game

    1. Well id rather lose a hacker to playstation than an actual fan, I’m not going to explain why pokemon is great, because it doesn’t take much thought. Yes, I miss the old games, but I still enjoy the new ones :)

  5. Yes finally a change to the battle system, plz get rid of items and make it more complicated and fair.
    I don’t want anymore 1 hit KOs because of stupid items.

    1. Getting rid of items would send the metagame back 4 generations, you do realise that?

      Items aren’t going anywhere.

  6. So” does this mean we’ll be getting another Pokemon series with Ash on another adventure in a new surrounding or will the black & white series continue on Cartoon Network?

    1. They only say over 700 because they haven’t made a final decision on which ones make the final cut, happens with all pokemon games, alot of pokemon in gen 1 and gen 2 were supposed to be switched around but they decided not to.
      Basically they can confirm 50 news, but unsure about anymore.

    2. what they really meant to say was “over 700 ass’s” they were referring to the pokemon total altogether, i believe.. so i hope its over 730+ too and not the amount of thrusts when i penetrated your mother, junior. :D

  7. So this game will max out the 3DS huh? Alright let’s see what’s up. This will most certainly be a game to get. These details sound too good to pass up

  9. They certainly have come a long way having over 700 in total. Now I wonder is this just gen 6 or will they include more gens?

  10. I have been not playing pokemon since pokemon sapphire, so I have to ask, they are bragging about 700 pokemon because this 2 new game will feature ALL of those 700 pokemons?

  12. I just realized, if they release a pokemon z then they’ll have all three axes of a 3-dementional graph. With the games being the 1st pokemon games on the 3ds do you think that was intentional?

  13. This is defiantly the year for 3DS owners as we’ve got those of great games coming out such as Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates of Infinity, Pokemon X Version and Pokemon Y Version plus many more unannounced games.
    These are the times I am proud and pleased to be a Nintendo fan and supporter.

  22. First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
