Want NX to sell?  Finally make a next-gen Pokemon game (it won't happen).

Anyways, oddly looking forward to it!  C'mon Pokemon Z!

I would be completely unsurprised to hear of Pokemon Z.  I would love to be surprised by something.  I'd like an actual release date for Pokemon Go as well.

Oh yeah, I gave up on that game forever ago.  It was impossible for me to do any more puzzles without buying them or doing the daily "training puzzles" for several months.

I didn't mind the free-to-start aspects of the game so much as the whole "Did you miss the one announcement we made on social media of the password for this arbitrarily locked away Pokemon? Well fuck you then!"

European trademark ahoy.

Those seem pretty detailed to be "just in case" filings. Plus the next movie has a new Pokémon not in the code for the current generation. Question is whether we are getting XZ and YZ before these so that they can add in the true form of the Zy...w/e that is in the show and movies now.

Re: Pokemon Direct on Pokemon Day: Pokemon Sun & Moon Confirmed

Direct confirmed Sun and Moon versions coming out in "Holiday 2016" for the 3DS. The implication is that this is the 7th generation games, so apparently this means we won't get a Z version- very odd. Wonder what they're going to be doing with that Perfect Zygarde, Volcanion and that special Ash-Greninja thing.

Chinese language option for Pokemon now- doesn't matter to people here, but I'm presuming that will massively increase sales.

They also said the e-shop versions of the Generation 1 games will be able to connect with Pokemon Bank. Finally you can bring your 8 bit Pikachu to the newer games, har.

Part of me thinks they're keeping Missingno. mostly because it's probably one of the most famous glitches in video games. The glitch that caused Missingno. to appear was a pretty simple oversight so it isn't that hard to change the game so that Missingno. is in the game but it doesn't screw up your save file like it used to.

That and they can just bar people from uploading Missingno. onto Pokemon Bank anyway.

Or maybe Missingno. will be an official Pokemon now- that'd be hilarious.

to me the problem isnt missing no. but what it enables.

What does it enable that people can't already do with pokegen-ing?
