This could be either three things:

- the third version/sequel/whatever of Pokémon SM
- A new Pokémon Mystery Dungeons game
- A new IP from Game Freak
1st or 3rd imo; Game Freak don't do PMD games, I thought.

Most likely a new Pokémon game. It doesn't surprise me that this is for the 3DS considering we're in the middle of a generation, and due to the fact that they've just released a new 2DS model which will see continued support/lifetime of the 2DS & 3DS through until 2018.

Oho. Fingers crossed for a third 7th gen game. Or maybe...diamond/pearl remake? Or is that too soon?

If it's for a core title, it's basically confirming diamond/pearl remakes. Because ever since gen.3, they've used the tech they make for a new generation for a remake of a corresponding older generation. And with the 3ds tech being so dated, using the 7th gen overworld/battle format to remake dppt seems like the perfect way to make a swan song for the 3ds without breaking the bank.

Demo coming August 20!

It's to soon though for DP remakes. You could still play them on your 3ds and for that reason alone I can't see it happening. It's a third game or maybe something unexpected if anything imo. Although it sounds likely to be Pokemon. GF usually will only put their non Pokemon games on different consoles than Nintendo's.

The ability to play 4th gen on a 3ds is a fair point. It's just a tough scenario imo. Because personally I don't think there is much interest in a slightly different 7th gen game on the 3ds at this point(with the hardware being so dated). At the same time, I can't see them starting the pokemon franchise on the switch(and thus a new engine), with remakes.

So personally I'd think just doing the remakes now, and saving the big graphical jump on the switch for gen.8, would be the best way to maximize their bang for their buck.

Fair points, it is an odd situation. Unless they really switch up the next game, then maybe it would work out. We will just have to wait and see I suppose.

Yep. Also something that I just remembered that's worth mentioning, is that you could play the original red/blue/yellow on a Gameboy advance, and yet they still made the FRLG remakes. So that might not be as big of an issue as originally thought.
