I don't know if many of you guys have seen this but...

I think this should clear some things for those who still don't know, but it seems like the fact Pokemon Gray will happen is really a fact instead of a what if now hehehe.

Time to talk business now~

This is like seriously old news dude, and means next to nothing actually.

Pokemon Crimson is also a registered Domain. There are many OTHER names similar. Pokemon Platinum was registered by someone else before its release and Gamefreak still produced a Platinum.

For all we know the Third game is Pokemon Rainbow.

:O i was so excited before i posted this i forgot to check the date of the post on ign... what a fail by me :'(

But still even if all those domains are registered it must mean something if the same company that registered pokemonwhiteblack did it... I mean to some great extent...

Old news is old:P

In addition to Gray and Crimson (stated above by Xander), they've also registered Brown. Doesn't mean much.

Nice try though ^^

It is registered by the same company Nintendo hired to do the Black and White website, not exactly a coincidence.

More than one person can purchase domain names through a company.

Note that a whois on the various domains like pokemongray, pokemoncrimson and pokemonbrown.com reports nothing connected to Nintendo themselves, only domains registered under the names of random people in America who've given Yahoo email addresses of all things.

Either this is Nintendo deploying undercover agents into the field to register websites in a hilariously roundabout manner - which might not even be for games, just general brand management to stop other people registering said domains. Or it could be people registering random domain names for no / unknown reasons. The problem is you can't call it any decisive proof without jumping to massive conclusions.


This article is yet another example of ridiculously speculative reporting from our friends in the gaming 'journalism' industry.

Yeaaah since this is old there's not really much to discuss, unless you want to bring it up in the name/mascot discussion thread, which is where this sort of thing would fit.
