The PGS is now closed for today. It'll be open again tomorrow, but there will be nothing new. We have it all.

Pretty disappointed that there were no Pokémon or Mega Evos revealed, but overall it was not a bad set of reveals

Having a Pokemon event and not revealing a single new Pokemon or MegaEvolution is pretty stupid IMO

So, if they're potentially hinting towards a Pokémon game for the Wii U with the image at the end of that retrospective, I'd say we'll hear more about it from a Nintendo Direct somewhere down the road. Maybe even as soon as September (hey, Nintendo needs to be competitive with all of the announcements coming out of TGS late next month, right)?

So is there a recap anywhere of all the reveals of this event?

Well I've got everything listed in the place I cannot name due to self promotion, but yeah...you should know where to go ;)

Yeah, I'm surprised too. I figured we'd at least get Mega Kangaskhan revealed to the Japanese audience.

Believe it or not the best Pokemon game I've played (or watched on youtube) was Pokemon Ash Gray...it was SO well done involving anime incidents that you could swear someone at Game Freak programmed it.

Alas I haven't played a Pokemon Game since ruby and sapphire where I was burned out of the franchise...these look like a good start again.

Well the last time I linked to my site to help someone, I got a warning that I would have got banned for it.

Firestorm doesn't work for Bulbagarden so he can post that.

How are they even supposed to know it's your website, unless you mention it?

OK, finally got home!

Here is my version of the secret part of the trailer. I have the CG promo recording but no way to upload it.


Here is Mr. Masuda himself!


And for the double battle, it started with these Pokemon;


In battle looks like this;


With Gallade and Marowak on the left and Noivern and Malamar on the right. Upon attacking, the Pokemon turn to face the enemy that has been selected. Marowak used Bonemerang twice, knocking out Malamar (who was then replaced by Pangoro) Gallade turned to Noivern and used Psycho Cut. Noivern then used Boomburst - it looked really cool. Turn two; Pangoro seemed to use Hammer Arm on Marowak but it survived. For some reason after that, Pangoro just fainted...it was a little confusing. It wasn't poisoned and didn't return to its ball. I may have lost something in translation. Anyway, Noivern then used a second Boomburst, knocking out Gallade and Marowak before they got replaced by Politoed.
Turn three; Politoed knocked out Noivern with a Hydro Pump before it was replaced by a Sylveon. It was drizzling and Sylveon used Moonblast before another Hydro Pump knocked it out. The End!

All in all, it looked really cool with some great graphics. Not sure it was worth being squashed up to a sweaty Japanese dude to see it, but I got within about 3 feet of Matsuda, which was cool! Any questions, feel free to ask!

Huh...tinypic is banned... :/

Anyway, some direct feed screens of the demo have been published by TPC



It's Fletchling!

Also, something I forgot to mention. My friend said the overworld was not able to have the 3D effect

This kind of bugs me, Pikachu's color looks off... like it's not as bright as it should be, especially the cheeks.

Ah I see.

Also kinda sucks that it's only Mewtwo who goes Mega. We wouldn't know if the transformation occurs before or after speed check. Although at least the Mega status is hidden until after you transform.

How do you know for sure nothing will be revealed tomorrow?

Sooo....You can Ride a Fn Rhyhorn now




I'm curious as to how practical this camera angle is, as well as some of the other camera angles presented in previous trailers.

If you can't rotate the camera freely, I'm not quite sure why this camera angle would even be an option, since you can't see whee you're going...

Also, has there been any information on how large the regions will actually be? Will it be comparable in size to previous regions, or can we expect a much larger world?

The bottom screen is blank. This isn't gameplay.

Developers can make the camera go wherever they want for the effect of showiness

see: every trailer ever

Because it'd be ridiculously unfair to people who visited yesterday?

I don't see how. The people yesterday got their fair share of big news, now it's time for the second day people to get their exclusives, similar to how Comic Con has big news each and everyday it's up. But you have far more experience with these events, so you're probably right.

That's a pretty cool alternate colouring for a shiny. I hope we get some info on how Eevee will evolve into it soon.

Pink usually becomes blue and vice versa. See Ditto, Mew, Quagsire, Exploud and a bunch of others.
