It seems that there will be some information on the NHK interview broadcast in Monday.

It seems it copies the facial gestures.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Courtesy of Bulbagarden Forums member Silktree:

Tsunekazu Ishihara (the president of the Pokémon Company) will appear on Japanese TV on October 28th. The synopsis of the interview mentions an unprecedented game whose development started this summer. The game is said to change Pikachu, and Ishihara is worried about how the change will affect Pikachu's popularity. More details should be revealed via the interview.

Japanese fans are speculating that said change may be Mega Pikachu. This is certainly a possibility, even though Mega Evolution is generally reserved for fully evolved Pokémon. It is also possible that the game in question will be compatible with XY, and thus Pikachu's change could be carried over to these games.

Original report at NHK's site (third segment).

“遊び心”、世界を制す
プロデューサー・石原恒和

ゲームにアニメ、映画にグッズと今や日本を代表するコンテンツとなった「ポケットモンスター」。これまでの売上は累計で4兆円にも上る。
そのすべての商品に関わり、方針を決めるプロデューサーが石原恒和(55歳)だ。すべてのきっかけとなった17年前のゲームプロデュースに始まり、世界への展開 など、石原は数々のブームを仕掛け続けてきた。
この夏、石原はこれまでにないゲームの開発に取りかかっていた。それは、一番人気のキャラクター・ピカチュウに大胆に手を加えるという新ゲーム。しかし長年愛さ れてきたキャラクターだけに、下手をすれば一気に人気を失う恐れもある。その時、下した石原の決断とは。
“遊び心”を武器に世界と戦う男の闘い。超機密の現場にカメラが入った。

Edit:
Translation by AAPF:

"In this summer, Ishihawa was in developing the game as ever see. The new game is to change the most popular game character Pikachu. However, there is a possibility to fall the popularity in a moment because Pikachu is beloved by all for long years. So what was his decision in that time ?

Hey you Pikachu 2 is Pokemon channel and it sucked.

I'm gonna say it's some dress-up Pikachu iOS thing. It's changing Pikachu, not the game.

Full fledged Pokemon game on Wii U. In fact, Pokemon Yellow remade for Wii U, full 3D.

Haha. I recently bought the GBC game and I love it. I wish they would make better spinoffs such as this and Snap... and Stadium... (I heard Conquest is good at least...)

That's my guess, at least. We already know Pokkén exists in some way, and such a thing would definitely be an "unprecedented" Pokémon game by all means.

My guesses:
A crossover with a more mature franchise like MH
A more mature Pokemon spinoff game
Mega Pikachu
A game in which Pikachu is doing something wrong(like a thieving Pikachu)
Fighting game

Pikachu would make more sense because they could make more money off merchandise with a Mega Pikachu and this way Ash's Pikachu can gain the ability to Mega Evolve in the anime to further push merchandise.
