Just yesterday I was saying to Kaori (former active PC user... currently... Zelda I believe?) are you sick??? When she's sick a new Pokemon game always comes out and she said she was, and I quote, "Boy I am a lil sick". It's a sign! Mainly asked because I was sick, but she's MAGIC.

I'm excited for anything other than DPPT remakes. Hoping for a Kanto remake on Pokemon Switch OR Legendary Pokemon being announced for Pokemon Go. C:

If they make DP remakes I really hope they don't go straight on the switch. (My favorite games being on a device I can't have. ;-;)

I hope they announce new main series games or S/M 3rd version. A good spinoff could also be good.

Less Alola, more Sinnoh.

I really hope it's for 3DS and not the Switch though...moving the core Pokemon games off the 3DS is effectively a death sentence for it, and that would be the most colossal dick move Nintendo could pull at this point. But given how little I enjoyed Sun/Moon - that is to say, I hated them - I'd rather an actual good Pokemon game be announced tomorrow, if it's all the same.

I'm probably guessing a new 3DS game, but it does feel a bit late in the year to announce a main series title so I'm keeping it low this time around.

Alola sequels? DPPt remakes? A re- imagining (not just a remake) of Kanto? I can't wait!

(Maybe GSC on the e-shop... I wouldn't complain about that.)
Actually with the movie coming out soon your re-imagining idea might not be that far off...

Although omg yes @ GSC, didn't even think of that but somehow I don't think that would get a Direct :(

I don't want to say it's a main-series game, or else that would have been announced already. Remember last year (and in 2014), it was in the month of May that they made announcements on main-series games to be released in November of both years. Now they could very well go away from that release path, but I honestly think it's a bit too soon to see another main series game release, even if it were to be either a sequel or remakes.

If it's a new spinoff game, I really don't see why it wouldn't be for the 3DS. The last thing they'd want to do right now is probably announce a release for the Switch, considering that the system is young with not too many titles out for it currently. More people have a 3DS as well, which could be a boosting point for sales of the game.

Hey there, we understand the excitement about the Direct announcement, but we've already got a thread about it, so I'll merge this over there for you!

MERGED.

Considering how both XY and Sun & Moon were announced through Pokmon Directs, I'd say we've got a pretty good chance that it will be a main series game. It seems that these directs are dedicated for a reason and I really can't see them announcing a spin-off in such a way that generates so much hype and publicity. Idk, I could be wrong, but enough time has passed for a new game announcement considering how, like now, ORAS was announced exactly 7 months after the release of XY.

Blue has a strong point in that this Direct could be for a main series title, since both X & Y and Sun & Moon were announced via Direct presentations.

Oh damn, I sleep in and miss the announcement about this. I'm excited! Hoping for a new original region 3DS or switch game personally but admittedly Gen 4 remakes seem the most likely. Or it could be something different entirely like a new type of spinoff.. very very hyped! c:

New region seems unlikely, since it's a generation thing and we can't have 8th Gen this early. Diamond & Pearl remakes would be awesome though, since I had often been struggling with my 4th Gen replays so maybe a fresh spin with Sinnoh may get me motivated again.

Having trouble understanding how moving Pokmon to a more current console, as they have four times now, is a "death sentence" or "a dick move". Don't get me wrong, I think it would be smarter to do 4th remakes for the 3ds right now, and save 8th gen on the switch till later. But by no means would it kill the series to move to the switch now.

Demo coming August 20!

It's not the Pokemon series I'm talking about, it's the 3DS. The 3DS owes the majority of its success, and its longevity, to the Pokemon franchise. After Nintendo stated that they would support the 3DS alongside the Switch, moving the Pokemon franchise to the Switch - especially so soon after the console was released and has had no time to get established - is a terrible, TERRIBLE idea.

I will concede that a core series Pokemon game on the Switch would do wonders for the sales of the console. But it would utterly kill the 3DS if it no longer had core Pokemon games on it; sales would drop and production would cease shortly afterwards. Nintendo moving the series to the Switch - why, by the way, is no substitute for a dedicated handheld system - would effectively contradict everything they've said about supporting the 3DS. No clearer message could be given that they're a bunch of filthy liars and nothing they say can be trusted than that.

...and I'm not so sure about what the sales would be like, in fact. In typical Nintendo fashion, there is a severe stock shortage of the Switch right now, and whether or not that will change even by the end of the year is questionable. Nintendo seem to be incapable of acting like an electronics company, because they seem to think that electronics sales work like old-fashioned toys, which they do not. But the cost of the Switch and its peripherals is outrageous. Cartridges are more expensive, too.

It's far too early for them to even think about moving Pokemon to the Switch in my opinion, and honestly I don't think they should ever do it. The 3DS has a very well-established userbase, a new model coming up, and it's a proper handheld system. So it is a dick move in every sense - lack of stock, outrageous costs, and abandoning the handheld they said they were going to continue to support. A bad idea.
