    Game Freak, the developer that has worked primarily on Pokemon for the past twenty years or so, is teasing a new "collaboration" on its website.

    Spoiler:


    The text reads "A classic game that's played all over the world will be reborn in a surprising collaboration". It's partially obscured by a bloom-heavy silhouette of... a four-legged armoured Moomin? A Pokemon that I don't recognise? Who knows.

    Game Freak has made HarmoKnight and 2005's Drill Dozer as well as all the main-series Pokemon games, and also made the charmingly bizarre Game Boy Camera software for Nintendo's Game Boy Color. Surely this must be Pokemon-related, but perhaps not. What do you think?

    IGN
    I wonder what it could be? O.o

      After seeing this article, I've been across the web looking at speculation. The Serebii Forums are saying Harvest Moon x Pokemon, and I've heard that suggestion thrown out a lot. Please note that it might not be Pokemon related, it says, "A classic game that's played all over the world" So it may not be Pokemon. Also, this could be Corocoro's "Scoop of the Century" so this could be something big.

        True, but that doesn't mean we couldn't hope it is! I'd say the odds are in our favor considering Pokemon is pretty much the only series they've made over the past 17 years besides 3 non-related games. If it weren't Pokemon related, I don't think it'd be on their website, but another of Nintendo's developers.

        I've never played Harvest Moon, but if it were an HM x Pokemkn collab that'd be incredibly interesting.

          What you guys seem to be forgetting is that, Pokemon is a classic game played all around the world. If pokemon isn't classic, then I don't know what is. Plus it's played in U.S., Europe, and Japan. I think that constitutes for around the world.
          So maybe some weird spin on Pokemon?

            The shape of the silhouette does look like something from Harvest Moon, so I see why everyone at Serebii first thought Harvest Moon X Pokemon. But darn it, when will I see a Capcom crossover with Pokemon?

                Well, harvest moon does have some similar aspects to Pokémon so it wouldn't be too hard to do something like that, and if that's the case I'll be insanely happy as they are 2 of my favorite series

                  I'm not so sure it'll be a Pokemon game. Gamefreak has never made a spin off to thier series. For me this kills the possibility of a spin off crossover.

                  It'll be exciting to see who they are working with.

                  I've seen some speculations that it could LoZ; people have said because of the introduction of fairies (and the rumoured fairy legend trio) that it could be possible; and that the silhouette is obviously a horse/pony so it could be a link to Epona. I dunno if I want to believe this; I mean it'd be cool but I doubt it. I think it is something to do with Pokemon though.

                  I haven't read a thing about this, really. And I don't really want to form opinions and hopes without more solid information, haha. But whatever it is, I'm sure it will be interesting. Pokemon Conquest was also a collaboration of sorts, and that worked out well. Guess we'll have to wait and see what we get!

                  Well... Conquest is supposed to get sequel so we might not get anything new but it's signal for Conquest sequel.

                    I don't think it's a pokémon thing, actually. But it would surely be interesting. It looks like a fat My Little Pony to me ;)

                      Weeell Serebii's twitter revealed what the new game is;

                      this is the tweet

                      Nothing to do with Pokemon.

                          So many people on the internet are already bashing this IP for not being another Pokemon crossover game nor a AAA title. Seems like their expectations were way too high.

                            Digimon has card games on motorcycles - Game Freak have card games on horses.
                            Digimon has a motorcycle Card game? What? Since when?

                            I wasn't really expecting anything Pokemon related. Gamefreak does not make Pokemon Spin offs. If a fan was disappointed they really should have done proper research.

                              Well that was a letdown. Not what I was hoping for. Is anyone even gonna play that? I don't think it's a "classic game played all around the world".

                                Extreme letdown ;n; I honestly didn't expect anything Pokémon related, but I did really hope for a cartoony Harvest Moon game collab... Like Magical Melody for the GCN but for the 3DS. Oh how I would love that. Animal Crossing NL helps fill that gap, though!

                                ... Hahahahahahaha. That's funny.

                                Ah.... But then again, I thought Angry Birds was a stupid idea for a game at first too. All I know is that Solitaire is boring to play while sober.

                                  Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. It looks fun to me though, sweeties.

                                  ...Now I'm kinda wishing if Link and Epona make a cameo of some sort. XD

                                    I know it is a long shot but I have been really thinking about all of this well since CoroCoro announced that they will have a thing of the century. It may as well be a collab between them and a home console game developer such as for the new Xbox1 or PS4. This could mean a main series Gen 6 game on a home console. I know it is a long shot.
