So, Junnichi Masuda director/producer/whatever at Game Freak said in a recent Q&A with fans to watch Pokemon Smash, a weekly Pokemon show in Japan, when asked about details of Black and White's 3rd version game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvNmfb4K03w

His response (about 4:30 in the video): "Well, there's no reason to expect me to know that [about a third version] [crowd laughs] but I can't answer. But...but... I wonder if it's alright to say this....watch Pokemon Smash...if you want details"

Yesterday, he posted on twitter:

来週のポケモンスマッシュ、絶対に生で見て!!!!見られない人はマスダのツイートに注目してて!!!

Or

"Don't forget to watch next week's Pokemon Smash live!!!! For people who can't watch it, check out my tweets!!!"


Pokemon Smash
airs Sundays in Japan, 7:30AM-8:30AM. The first half hour is usually dedicated to an old episode of the cartoon. The preview for this weeks episode (2/26) makes no mention of a game announcement or appearance by Masuda.

It's the successor to Pokèmon Sunday.
And...and...isn't Pokèmon Sunday where they basically unveiled Black & White ( three main Pokèmons, some footage) ?

How many Pokemon variety shows are there? I know of Sunday (which is the big one), but there's another?

Edit: So they changed the name? That's stupid.

Kids.

I've tried watching these variety shows based off of media properties, and it's difficult to get through them (to the point where I haven't gotten through a full one). They are aimed very squarely at children and basically no one else.

It's going to be Grey.

Only question is if it's DS or 3DS.

12-ish months ago, Game Freak hired people with experience in 3D graphics (of the regular, non-stereoscopic kind). It's a possibility.

This is Game Freak, this is mainline, this is likely the 3rd version ("Grey")

Honestly it would be pretty weird if they didn't even have one new Pokemon game outside of that Nobunaga spin-off this year. Even a Ranger/Mystery Dungeon game would be pretty nice.

Which isnt possible. DS Game with DSi features, like B/W would be though.

It has to be a 3DS title though - Nintendo needs system sellers especially in Europe and the US.

If it is a Black/White redux, I want it to be 3DS compatible. Streetpass, 3D effect, etc. They already laid the groundwork for the communication features with the C-Gear.

so then we could possibly be seeing a summer release with a winter release in the US going by the amount of time it usually takes them to release the games.

Considering they want to keep on pushing the 3DS? I would say so, I mean 5 million is nice, 10 million is even better lol
