A portion of an ONM fan-submitted interview with Game Freak’s Ken Sugimori and Junichi Masuda…
ONM: Are you interested in the idea of a Wii version of the DS game, with 3D graphics?
Sugimori-san: I am interested in strong visual effects. However, I believe that Pokémon is most appropriate for portable consoles.
Masuda-san: I’m really not thinking about having the main Pokémon games on the Wii, because using portable consoles means you can always carry Pokémon around with you and you can play with other players, so that’s the future I’d like to emphasise.
