I don't think protagonist artwork would really need an international announcement, though. :(

Its a new Pokemon and most likely some more news, I wonder what it could be. If it has a worldwide announcement and Junichi Masuda is even promoting it, I'd say its more than just a Pokemon reveal..

Am I the only one here who will buy the game regardless of how the new generation looks like because I'll eventually use gen. 1/2 Pokemon only as my team?
Just curious...

I do care about how they look like and how useful they'll be as I tend to use a mix generational team beyond 3 (my starting and favorite region is Hoenn...which should be obvious to everyone by now lol).

Here's an interesting thought, what if the new Pokémon is another legendary? Perhaps from the side trio(s)...or maybe even the third member to the mascots... it'll be unique if so as Rayquaza, Giratina, and Kyurem weren't revealed, we found them in the games.

So...which region is your favourite? :D

Kidding aside, I will be using whatever's in the regional Pokédex to keep it true to the theme of a new region and story. That doesn't mean I won't import other Pokémon or trade them in with other people, it just means I'll stick to the main game at first. That's what they intend by putting the import tools AFTER the E4.

Here's an interesting early April Fools info regarding XY I found from 4chan:

Spoiler:
Quote:
First off, pardon the unfortunate date I am revealing this information on...it is a rather annoying coincidence that the New Pokemon reveal next week falls so close to April Fools Day, and I know that people are even less likely to believe unsourced rumored information today more than ever but, at the same time, I hope that you can look past that and give this a chance before writing it off as simply a prank.

On April 6th/7th, GameFreak is revealing three new Pokemon via the official Pokemon X and Y website, as well as Pokemon Smash. These three New Pokemon will likely surprise players as they, design wise, are not exactly ground-breaking but their role in Pokemon X and Y is something that has never been done before in a mainline Pokemon game. These three new Pokemon are a second set of Starter Pokemon that will be available in Pokemon X and Y, like the Monkey Trio in Pokemon Black and White, but they each have individual designs and are part of a three-stage line like the regular Starters. They are not distributed at the beginning of the game but, rather, you obtain the one weak to your main Starter around the end of the first 1/4th of the game. The reason there are two sets of Starters this time around? Well, it's to highlight a very in-depth new feature revolving around pairing up Pokemon that will be revealed at a later date. And now, without further ado, let me introduce you to the secondary Starters of Pokemon X and Y.

Grass Starter: Looks like a little peacock mixed with a pea, with a red belly, and little pea-pod tail-feathers. Pure Grass.
English: Peavo
Spanish: Peavo
Italian: Peavo
French: Peaon
German: Pfaubse
Japanese: ピージャク

Fire Starter: A large, bipedal red bull with black horns and black spots and white stripes on its body. Pure Fire.
English: Corrull
Spanish: Corrull
Italian: Corrull
French: Robulle
German: Wulle
Japanese: アカブル

Water Starter: A bipedal, shark creature with a flat head and an infectious grin that stretches across its face. Pure Water.
English: Jawsome (yes, I believe this is a shout-out to Street Sharks)
Spanish: Jawsome
Italian: Jawsome
French: Regrin
German: Haifive
Japanese: ニコザメ


A second set of starters in a similar role as the elemental monkeys sounds too good to be true since the elemental monkeys themselves are already hinted to be in the game based on the trailer.

I would love secondary starters!
But I don't think they will make much difference, they will just be regarded as rare Pokemon you can get later in the game, & getting them depends on whether I want a pure fire/grass/water type in my team or not, I mean you would obviously choose a hybrid over a pure right?

It seems like everything will be an international announcement at this point; the only thing we didn't get at the same time was Sylveon because that was leaked a little early in Japan, and the names of Xerneas and Ylveltal a little early outside of Japan.

Protagonist artwork by itself may not warrant an entire announcement, but I think it may be what Masuda is revealing. If the protagonists' artwork doesn't match up to the 3D models we saw in the trailer (with glasses, for example) then it could lead into a reveal of customizable protagonists, if that is happening. Or it could even be the region map--something that we usually get early on that we haven't gotten this time around.

I'm sure the card the Smash cast was holding was the official artwork of the new Pokémon. I'm excited to see what it is! I'm thinking it might be this gen's electric rodent, or another "cute" "mascot" like Minccino. It may be the basic bird but usually that's revealed alongside the basic rodent. And I'm really hoping it's not another Eevee evolution. But that's always a possibility.

It only mentions that the first form is pure grass/fire/water. The evolutions would possibly have different types.

It hardly matters though since it's obviously fake.

What are you talking about? They were holding a card with a question mark on it. I don't see the connection between a generic question mark and official pokemon artwork.

Behind the question mark would be the official art work. Its the same exact thing I said when I posted that there were three different cardboard cards. Two have colored backgrounds, one red the other blue, and the ? on it. Both are covering what is really on those cards.

We know we are getting a new 3D image as that was the third image shown. One of the two covered cards is most likely the official artwork.

Here are my guesses on the announcement: another eeveelution being a new type( sound type and sylveon light), mewtwo's new form( seems to be hinted by nintendo in the new movie), or just a pokemon of a new type.

A second eevolution is possible, we still have time before the movie short too...and Sylveon's method and type has yet to be revealed...they could reveal that info together with the info with this one.

The red ? box could reveal Yveltal's type, and the blue ? box could reveal Xerneas's type.

Well I think we'll get to see the small, cute event legendary. You know, just like Victini and Jirachi.
And is.it just me who sees something above the questionmark from the battle screen? looks like 2 gray ears...

Hopefully its an evo or pre-evo of an existing pokemon. I love pre-evos and evos of existing pokemon. If the grey ears thing is true, could be a purugly evolution? idk.

I want it to have an evolution so I hope so :3 .
Mightyena,Absol, and Tropius evos work too (not saying they're grey, I just want evolutions of them this generation).

I really hope they reveal more than just one pokemon, maybe a family of all 3 evos, or one that looks like a new type ( if there is indeed going to be a new type)

I'm guessing its going to be one pokemon, that's probably going to be really relevant towards something, a regional map and maybe minor details. I just can't seem them revealing a regional bug and leaving it at that. They seem to be hyping it up a bit.

It must be a Pokemon playing a major role in the game given the amount of publicisation it has gained, perhaps the third legendary counterpart to Yveltal & Xerneas?

Or the unexpected: Ruby/Sapphire remakes! Blue box is Sapphire and red box Is Ruby.
I know its not going to happen since we have to wait after the releases of X and Y.

We have a better chance of a brand new Pokemon rather than an addition to an existing right now. We got Sylveon last time and it wasn't announced albeit hinted at. Since this one is just "NEW POKEMON!" Its most likely a new Pokemon.

Quote originally posted by Co500:

There was only one battle screen so chance are its either a stage to one family or a single stage Pokemon.

First Pokemon revealed for Black and White played no major part in the games at all. Some of the leaks after that were just random Pokemon that didn't have any major focus. We already got the big guys out, Starters, Legends and a Movie focus, so this can be any random Pokemon.
