Is it already time for a Pokemon Stadium/Colosseum/Battle Revolution type of game that connects the handheld system to the home console to come out for Wii U? I'd say yes, and I'd like to see something more than just gym battling. I want to see a Monster Hunter style open world of exploration with or without a friend to co-op with.

Give it a rest. Literally only Sony die hards living in caves are saying anything like this now.

Well, I guess they have kind of moved on to the WiiU is doomed the last couple months. I still hear quite a bit about how 3DS is not selling well with no mention of how the Vita is selling from analysts and the like. But, I have believed all along a new Pokemon for 3DS is just what it needs to put all that to rest. Even though with some I don't think it will ever be put to rest, look how many people still believe the Wii was a complete failure for Nintendo. And coming off having the biggest selling console and handheld of the last generation there are still calls for Nintendo to go third party.

i'm super stoked for this announcement. but, the nintendo direct is only 10 minutes long. how much information could they possibly cram into 10 minutes? i feel like the first 3 minutes alone will be iwata just saying hello and telling us all how much he appreciates us watching nintendo direct.

Sounds like staying up for this might be worth it.

"We are happy to announce that in the month of Feburary, games will be able to download the original pokemon Red and Blue from the Nintendo eshop on you Nintendo 3DS, and pokemon stadium releasing in march for the Nntendo Wii and Wii U with wireless connectivity!"

Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Ruby, Sapphire...bring all of it. Hell give us the Pokemon TCG game. I'll buy them.

@nicetoknovvyou

If it pertains to the next gen like we all hope it will be, we'll probably get the game's logo along with the version's names and a few new Pokemon all wrapped up in a 2-3 minute teaser. The remaining time probably has Iwata going over some Pokemon facts (sales,history,etc.) and maybe some Pokemon eshop announcement like VC releases.

Ok, now I'm extremely hyped. If it's anything less than Gen VI or a MMO I'll be very dissapointed.

Well I was right except the VC prediction.

That teaser went by really quick but I do like what I see. The best news for me is the release date. OCT 2013 is just too good to be true. X and Y is a bit wierd but I guess it will take some time to get used to. Pokemon Z could probably be the third version lol

Gotta see it again before saying anything more.

GEN VI - Full-3D on the 3DS, Worldwide Oct 2013 Release

YESSSS! Also my birthday month. :shock: :mrgreen:

X and Y, eh. Interesting name direction change - wonder what they symbolise?

I wonder if it might be based in Europe [not just France]?

Don't know which version I wanna get yet [which is a first]. Maybe the red deer...

Perhaps X and Y means gender?

Was my obvious first thought, but alike with certain western Rainbow connotations, I doubt Nintendo would want to literally reference each game as for a specific gender...


The two things I hope from this [now we have 360 movement], is that there's an easier [non-minigame] way of transferring pokemon from your DS games to your 3DS one [via an app or and channel] for those of us with a single system. And Follow Pokemon return [with option to turn it off, for those of you with no souls].
