Show is now over.

First pics :

Video : YouTube

Thanks JoeM86 ;)

And yup, that's it ;)

***
Disappointed by the lack of gameplay footage (or even screenshots) in the announcement trailer for Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire? Don't want to wait until E3 to see what the game looks like? Well, good news: Japanese children variety show Pokémon Get☆TV will have the very first gameplay footage of the game this Sunday, at 7.30AM JST (note : that's when the show starts, not when the gameplay footage will be shown).

Time is :

Japan : Sunday @ 7.30AM
Europe : Sunday @ 12.30AM (11.30PM on Saturday for UK)
US East : Saturday @ 6.30PM
US West : Saturday @ 3.30PM

NB: actual reveal should happen during the 2nd half of the show... so add 30mn to the times above ;)



If there's any stream (and provided it's not against the ToS), I'll post it there. Actually, there's one : YouTube and this one (full show) and this one (if you can't watch livestreams on YT) (please delete if necessary).

Saw this in the announcement thread, but thought it deserved its own thread. Sell me a Golden Magikarp if old/unecessary.

There will probably be an official western video from Nintendo and The Pokemon Company around the same time like they did with X/Y when it came to unveilings. Can't wait for it.

Hmm... true. That depends on what they show, though. Hope it's an actual trailer.

No. Golgo left when Pokémon Smash ended, as did Red, Akiyama, Yamamoto and Baba. It's all new people now, except Shoko.

Considering how they worldwide these reveals, you are correct. Just like the Mega Mewtwo Y announcement. Came on Smash first, then official PR, video, and pictures 10 minutes later.

It will be running the same engine as X & Y. This is how the games are now.

Stoked to see footage! I'm not sure if I'd rather it be in X/Y's style or updated 2D sprites. Although, the disclaimer in the reveal trailer about how only parts of the game will be in 3D suggests the X/Y approach.

Wellt at least improve the endgame and give us high level trainers to fight after Elite4

All remakes and enhanced versions have a decent post-game. Relax :)

Yellow and Crystal (well, Crystal has something at least) but I know what you're saying. The remakes and final versions/sequel in the case of BW have been really polished efforts with almost too much content in some cases. HG/SS in particular was loaded to the brim.

Or at least an option to turn off things which cause problems. Namely backgrounds in battles (in the Gyms and a few other places there was no background and the framerate was fairly stable...until you mega evolve and then there are once again too many polygons).

I loved sprite-based Pokémon, but the games work so much better in 3D; you could tell by Black and White that having to work within the constraints of sprites was not enough. I know X/Y's engine ran like a dog sometimes, but I'm sure that's something they can work on.

I think your timing for Europe/UK is a bit off if it's 7:30am in Japan.

Currently it's just after 5:30pm in Japan, 9:30am in the UK

so +2 hours (7:30pm JST) is 11:30am BST

so it would be 11:30pm BST, 12:30am CEST if it's 7:30am in Japan. (10:30am GMT).

Too bad I really don't like the look of the current generation of Pokemon all that much.... :/
Yeah it's 3D but really what it is is a better looking B/W with 3D models for the characters. The battles while good looking in general ran badly and I'm also not a fan of the 2D artworks for most of the trainers (which also caused the lack of taunts from the opponent which I actually really liked when fighting leaders/rivals).
It just has a taste of "not quite there yet" and it makes me sad to get Ruby/Sapphire remakes in that state. :(
Hopefully Gen 7 will get Red and Blue/Green remakes again in a truly, really good looking full 3D Style ( did I just ask for more remakes of remaked games? Yes, yes I did.......)

Damn, you're right. No idea why I thought this would be at 1.30 GMT+2. Fixed.

Haha, no problems. I always double check this stuff.

Speaking of, isn't US East, EDT? That should be 6:30am then, since there is a 5 hour time difference between it and the UK timezone. (not sure about US West but I'm sure you can figure it out from the US East timezone :P )

Sorry to be picky, just mentioning it so anyone that wants to watch it doesn't miss it.

I feel the same way. It would be cool if they could include the original ROM on the cart or digital download. I would think a VC version would not happen so it does not eat into the profit margin of the remake but they don't even have GBA games available on 3DS VC in the first place.

People should check out videos of the Digimon 3DS game. That's the visuals Pokemon XY shoulda been pushin.

Not that I'm saying the games good I haven't played it but from a visual standpoint its leaps and bounds beyond XY

this is a DS game but

I mean imagine this higher resolution nicer models and junk but a similar style and of course a decent draw distance

GF aren't too hot at 3D. Wonder who they got to make the battle engine.

What about the possibility it's only in that style because it's the best they could manage to get running at an acceptable framerate?

Hopefully it's a bit more impressive technically than XY was. ALBW did a steady 60fps with or without 3D last year, so that shows what's possible. Maybe now Game Freak have been working with the 3DS for a while now, things will have improved... I hope :/

My initial reaction was 'but we already know how it'll look don't we' but of course we don't for sure. None of the remakes so far have looked exactly like the other games of their generation so I'm interested to see what makes these visually distinct.
