I'm sure everybody has heard already that there is going to be some big international announcement tomorrow on Pokemon.com. I just read that there will be a special Nintendo Direct dedicated to it, so whatever it is, it must be big.

As far as I can tell, there has been no official information leaked so it's really being kept quiet. I'm pretty anxious to see what it is. I have some general ideas of what it might be and what I'd like to see.

Could be a remake of Pokemon Sapphire and Ruby.

Could be Pokemon Gray (although I find this unlikely and highly disappointing news).

Could be a Pokemon live action movie (this one is only a joke).

Anybody else really anxious to find out what the big news is?

I'm hoping for a new Pokemon game for the 3DS.
Which would mean a 3-D Pokemon game.
And I would be just as happy with a 3-D remake of Red/Blue as I would a brand new 3-D Pokemon game.
And by 3-D, I mean to say 3-D perspective as opposed to 2-D birds-eye-view, not so much the 3-D feature...

And now "3-D" doesn't look like a word anymore. Well, it's not a word, but you know what I mean...

3D Action RPG/Platformer kinda like PokePark but way cooler.

That's what I hope for.

I hope it's a remake of Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald, or at least as awesome as that.

I hope it's not the reveal that there will be a sixth generation. I really wish that Game Freak would stop making new Pokémon and just flesh out what they have right now.

Isn't that what Black 2/White 2 were?

Yes, and I'm happy they did that. However, I would much rather prefer for them to continue fleshing out the Pokémon world as opposed to adding new Pokémon and regions.

I'd like to take Grooms' earlier idea of 3D Pokemon in the sense he described. Along with Mageleif's of wanting it to be more fleshed out, without constantly adding new things. And combine it into one huge game where you can travel to any current region.
But I can't get my hopes up that high.

I'm starting to think that they kinda have to keep making new Pokemon to appease the marketing department. You can only sell so many Oshawott plushes before people want something new.

Well, there's over 600 otter (accidental typo pun. I'm keeping it) Pokemon out there.

That may be, but they're not as marketable as sixth generation starters would be.

Give me Pokemon Snap remake/sequel (WITH EVERY POKEMON EVER) which takes advantage of the accelerometer/gyroscope and I will be a happy man.

But that's probably not what Nintendo has in mind.

I would love to see a 3D game like Grooms described, but I'm not convinced Nintendo wants to do it.

I think a Ruby / Sapphire remake in the Black / White 2 style is the most likely announcement.

I will be very very disappointed if it's something for the Wii U. I know they have made Pokemon Rumble Blast and Pokemon Conquest, but I would love very much to see a regular Pokemon gameplay game for the 3DS. Most specifically, I'd love to see a remake of the Hoenn games. That's really what I'm hoping for and unless it's something totally completely awesome, I will most likely be disappointed if that is not what the announcement is.

I do not think they will do a sixth generation already, although it would make since (in a way) to start a new generation on a new console. Never before (someone please correct me if I am wrong) have they had a generation span across two different consoles. I suppose if they remade Ruby and Sapphire, they would be for just the DS. I don't think they could technically start a new generation with remakes of old games. I tried so hard to explain this to my hubby, but we ended up arguing over it. If they start a new generation, like Mage said, it will have to be all new Pokemon and also an all new region.

It must be big if they're doing an international announcement rather than releasing the info. in Japan first. But as we all know, if anything is released anywhere at all, we will all know about it. It just doesn't mean it's official for the rest of us just yet.

All I want is Gen III remakes on 3DS before anything else. Especially for the scene where Rayquaza descends.

I hope it doesn't have anything to do with Black 2/White 2. I'm so behind...

It's probably a spin-off of some sort. Maybe a game starring Pikachu.

It seems a bit early for new games.

Yeah, that's probably what it is going to be. I'm really really hoping for a 3DS title. It seems like it's pretty big whatever it is. In my opinion, it's way to big a deal for a spin-off game.

But that's just my opinion.
