    well the best possible situation is they created living pokemon and wanted to test pilot it in North America... but that's crazy. My realistic hope is that it will be a Pokemon Emerald 3data remake.

      I highly doubt whatever is announced will come out all the way in September. I believe they will come before that. I'm certain Nintendo is really pushing Game Freak to get these out for the 3DS as soon as possible to boost the 3DS sales, ESPECIALLY in the west which makes me believe the gap between the Japanese/English release may be the smallest gap we've seen between Pokemon games. I mean, we are getting a simultaneous announcement and the 3DS is in dire need of a game like Pokemon to boost its sales in the west so I'm sure they'll want to push it out internationally as soon as possible.

      They never announce a game 9 months before release. The only time they revealed one 9 months+ before release was D/P which was because they had planned it for release in 2005, but it got delayed until 2006. Whenever they plan to release games in September, they reveal them in April/May - NOT all the way in January.

        Would June or July be a better opening if 6th Gen were announced tomorrow? Because we still got that Genesect movie in July, meaning Ash will still be in Unova for a little bit longer afterwards, which would put the release near the end of July or beginning of August, in which we would still have to wait atleast a couple of months before they go international.

        This is kind of not serious but I keep seeing these posts on Tumblr speculating and two of the funnier ones were "Ash is finally going to turn 11" and one referencing Pokemon's tweet and saying "GUYS WE'RE GETTING POKEMON IN REAL LIFE"

          With less than 4 Hours and 57 Minutes away from the BIG POKEMON ANNOUNCEMENT
          We can Pretty Much Guess Its not going to be a Spin Off Game

          They have never done something this big for a Spin Off Game why start now?

          It will Most Likely either be Hoenn Remakes or 6th Gen

                Just a rumor, but god that sounds good. I would flip for this.
                It claims it has only Pokemon from Generations 1-4 Plus it has 20 New Pokemon

                Also Claiming a Wii U App to be released alongside of it

                This is not a Rumor its just Complete ********

                EDIT: Plus it doesn't even sound like a good game

                I don't know why two sources (one being bogus) talks about this one pokeman, but Dracoeon sounds and looks hideous.

                  It's most likely fake. Also it has a contradiction with Munna a gen V pokemon in a game that is suppose to focus on gen 1-4.
                  Well good night. I hope when I wake up I'll be excited by what the news turned out to be.

                    Wait a sec, they could be celebrating Pokémon's 17th anniversary. Or wait... could it be some other anniversary of a company linked towards Pokémon? Like Game Freak?

                    If so, then it would explain why the announcement that they're making is huge.

                      [sarcasm]Yes Because they will totally be celebrating for the 17th Anniversery WHICH HAPPENED LAST YEAR....[/sarcasm]

                      1. That Happened Last Year
                      2. 17 isn't even significant Maybe 20 is but not 17

                        Hm... if that Pokémon Rainbow rumor is true... then it would definitely mean that it's a standalone game for Generation VI. And only 20 Pokémon would make it a very short generation.

                        Yep, sounds too good to be true.

                        Ah well, we'll see what they'll announce at the Pokémon Direct presentation. Only two hours to go!!! So exciting!!! :D

                            The fact that they put the classifications up means that we are getting game play footage, I'm almost certain.

                            I am staying up just for this. I am honestly really psyched for this. I'm really feeling this is Gen 6 but who knows?

                              I reaallyyy want Gen 3 remakes, but Idk if they will or not. Can someone fill me in on the rumor of 'Pokemon Rainbow' ? And I don't think this is gen 6, It seems like Gen 5 just came out.

                              All rumours are just that: rumours. Unfounded, no backing up, etc. As such, all we know is that it is an announcement on Pokemon.

                              One can say likely new game though, and possibly new gen due to a number of factors though (in part how darn much they have promoted this announcement, for instance). Anything more than that should be taken with a grain of salt, if that. We'll find out in a half hour at any rate.

                              In regards to new gen or not... well, consider the anime in Japan about to end (with a seemingly 'filler' saga to start soon after), and the fact they rushed out all the 5th gen event Pokemon already rather than doing them relatively slowly to the 4th gen (and they only lasted as long as 4th gen lasted too that time). And Game Freak had access to the 3ds dev kits for some years now too, so surely something sooner or later on the 3ds is coming out by them.

                                Eww, these rumors are getting worse and worse. Pokémon rainbow? With four regions? Only 20 pokémons? This better not be true.

                                We'll find out in 22 minutes
