The Pokemon Company has revealed to MCV that the next twelve months will be among the biggest in Pokemon history. The Pokemon Company is planning to launch a number of new Pokemon related titles, a new TV series, events, a film and new toys throughout 2013. the Pokemon Company will then release the long-awaited Pokemon X and Pokemon Y for the Nintendo 3DS, which is the first ever worldwide release of a major Pokemon game.

“Undoubtedly 2013 is a key year for us to grow and usher in a new era for Pokémon with Pokémon X and Pokémon Y and the introduction of new characters as the launch platform.”

“We believe these games will appeal to all generations both veterans and newcomers to Pokémon.”

– The Pokémon Company International’s marketing director Anthony Cornish

    • na, thats probably just the usual marketing talk. “its for everyone! it’ll be big! everyone will enjoy it! preorder now to make sure that you’re not the only one to miss out…”, coupled with “no, 30y-old guy, you don’t need to feel ashamed for buying pokemon. its not just for kids, its for everyone! buy now!” :>

  1. “long-awaited” seems to be not true. the games weren’t announced that long ago. if anything, the ruby and sapphire remakes are long-awaited.

  3. I hope when they finally lift the lid on this game thats its something we dont expect.
    It’s easy for us to say, “what about customisation?”, “multiple regions?”, “MMO type features?”, but i want to be surprised.

    What if, much like a Mega Man game, you could tackle the gyms in which ever order you wanted, and HM were aquired in a non linear way, so one direction would get you cut, the other would get you surf, and different pokemon live on different routes.
    I know its ambitious, and would require a much smarter and reworked design, in terms of balancing the trainers pokemon and the opponants, but its the sort of thing that would challenge everyone, and give them something new.

  4. I’m pretty excited the game is getting a worldwide release, everyone is getting the same toys as japan,and here is to hoping the anime and movies are much closer ! they may have been keeping all this a huge secret as well as x and y. maybe we get the movies and series only a couple months after ? i mean technically that new mewtwo form or lookalike is from the movie so who knows ? i don’t know what they have up their sleeves but whatever it is if they deliver this right.Pokemon is gonna be HUGE this year!and I’ve been looking forward to a big year for a number of years now!

  5. I only care about X/Y.
    Also, I’m sick of Pikachu… they need to stop shoving him wherever they can because it’s annoying and not necessary.
    Yes people, I can actually play a PKMN game without wanting Pikachu.

  6. I hope that by ‘New Series’ they mean a TV Series based in the Mystery Dungeon universe because if the Mystery Dungeon Anime shorts are anything to go by. It has a ton of potential.

  7. hopefully, the new pokemon related titles include a game that features Shadow Pokémon, or a 3rd installment to the Shadow Pokémon games

  8. Here are the amounted possiblilties for that they have conveyed.

    1. New games coming out. x and y, but also maybe we might get a secret release like a remake of ruby and saphire….
    2. New tv series, yes it has the potential to be the next season where ash goes to X and Y region… OR

    They could go with the original idea of pokemon in the first place and create a complete new series called pokemon adventures. Which was going to kind of follow in the footsteps of red.

    But yea…
