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.

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.

people are up at 7:30am to watch a Pokemon show? damn Japan
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.

Any chance its a brand new game for the 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")

I wonder if the next real entry in the series will be in 3D, now that the 3DS has abit more juice in it.

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.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

It's probably going to be a DS game, but with 3DS features.
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.

Should probably not trust the 7-11 security cameras quite so much

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.

WiiU is going to take a lot of media time the later half of the year

and why not add another nail to Vita's box while you are at it
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.

I would love to see a 3DS pokemon game with the 3d models used in the 3ds pokedex app.
