Junichi Masuda is going to appear in Pokémon no Uchi (Z news?)

Pokémon no Uchi is a Sunday variety show for children. Originally, it was called Pokémon Sunday, then Pokémon Smash, then Pokémon Get TV. Unlike those though, it only ran for 30 mins while the others ran for an hour. The difference is that said other half-an-hour is a re-run of a random anime episode, while Pokénchi has none (instead the 30 mins is replaced with Princess Sophia, so yeah if you want to watch Sophia in Japanese go enjoy!).

I don't think he made an announced appearance with a trivial announcement (I think the only disappointing news was a shiny? And even then it was during a peak of a new game, so it didn't matter). However, we are in due time for this announcement.

While they he explicitly mentioned when this episode will air, it will most likely air after XY&Z's premiere, which is next week. So maybe three to four weeks from now. The upcoming Pokénchi episode even focuses on "the favorite scenes in the anime" because this week is the last episode of XY.

So uh... Z hype?

EDIT: confirmed 15th of Nov.

Has there ever been noteworthy news from this show? I've hyped for naught over it before. Well, over one of its predecessors.

new mons don't come from it, however, games announcement came out from it

This is interesting to say the least. If there is a game anouncement in 3 to 4 weeks how long until launch?

I just want a new Pokémon game already.

I can't wait to miss my sleep in order to see weird people in costumes competing in the weirdest of the games. And no Z news...
 
Pokemon ORAS was pretty bare post-game contentwise so I have high hopes they're saving the best for last with Z. Hell, maybe we'll finally get our Battle Frontier equivalent in this game.

I remember staying up super late at night for a potential announcement of B2/W2 and X/Y/ORAS news before, this will be fun.

Black & White weren't announced in a TV show. But B&W2 were first unveiled on Pokemon Smash, though.

Probably shouldn't have been a thread. He has appeared on this show's predecessors without bringing news on numerous occasions.

The episode is set to air on November 15th

Pansage was first shown in Sunday. As was Zoroark's silhouette, starter silhouettes etc.

New game announcements are what typically don't come, but did with B2W2.

Well, let's take a hold of hope.

So it's 4 weeks from now, we should get the summary in 3.

I'm pretty sure he has done in the past.

We should wait until we get the summary of the episode before we start saying "Oh my god, news is coming"
Would an episode summary really confirm that a new game will be revealed though? Sounds like it'd defeat the purpose of the surprise

It typically shows that there's news. It'd say something like "Junichi Masuda appears with the latest information" or say what he's doing there.

Do note they tend not to "surprise" on these things. They give a heads up that something is coming, just don't say what.
