Jhoto Remakes!

Oh, wait, they already did that.

I'm still wagering B/W 3 or a RSEmake

Fansites are latching onto the Rainbow rumor and /vp/ is flipping a collective shit over it.

ah yes, the shitstorm in /vp/ is amazing

it's amazing what years and years of being hyped for something that turns out to be underwhelming can do to people, can you blame them?

so, nintendo, let this be a lesson to you now: if whatever you're announcing tomorrow ISN'T Rainbow, then you should probably just not announce it at all (unless it's a new gen).

The only reason I am not jumping on the Pokemon Rainbow bandwagon is that it seems the name of the alleged Dragon Eevee evolution has already been decided in English. (I realize this is probably not the best reason to be skeptical.)

That being said, I already had plans to get a 3DS XL. If any of this is true, I'll be ready for a Japanese version if it'll be possible to play it on my hopeful 3DS XL.

I mean, there are many reasons to not believe this rumor.

Mainly, the hardware and ingame limitations of having multiple regions, the lack of exploitability for Nintendo at the market (why buy multiple Pokemon games when you have one with four regions?), and the fact that they just recently pumped out a Gen II remake, which covers two of the proposed regions.

This "OMG ALL REGIONS" rumor comes up every big announcement, but I seriously doubt it is true, or would ever be true for that matter.

Given this ridiculous level of hype from Masuda Junichi, do we dare to dream? Do we dare to dream?

Pokémon MMORPG? :o

The odds are like 484,595,633:1 against this being the case, but GOOD GOD would it be awesome. (Wouldn't see it having much of anything to do with the 3DS though. All the more reason to guess it probably won't be something that good!)

Whatever they end up announcing, it'll have been pretty clear that it was toxicly overhyped unless it was the Pokémon Rainbow thing.

Well if it is a Pokemon MMORPG, then it will probably be on the Wii U which will suck because I wasn't intending on purchasing a Wii U nor do I have the access funds to do so just to play a pokemon MMO >>

Not to mention this basically confirms it's for the 3DS:

What the hell is Nintendo Direct? Oh God, don't tell me this is a revival of those bullshit GBA anime episode dealies. D: "Stream episodes of the anime directly to your Nintendo 3DS! "

Nintendo Direct is just Nintendo's name for the stream they use for press releases and announcements. They use it for E3 and I believe Iwata Asks (not to sure on that one though).

Them renaming it "Pokemon Direct" just means they're hyping the hell out of it.

>All the gens in one game

That's FOUR ENTIRE REGIONS to get through (assuming not B/W because hey, too recent).

Do you have any idea what that would actually be like, rumor-monger?

As for the leading theories:

Hoenn remakes could be a good way of testing the water and seeing how people react to a 3DS-exclusive Pokemon game, whether doing the same thing in the future is worthwhile.

Or, they could simply be total dicks about things, skipping the previous step and forcing everyone to buy a 3DS in order to play Gen VI legally. Pokemon sales will take a hit, but you can bet 3DS sales will shoot up.

On balance I'd say:
1. Hoenn Remakes (if they're coming at all, they're coming now)
2. Gen VI (because of the Eeveelution rumours)
3. Anime announcement (we'll be moving into a new season soon, and if it's not based on either of the above we'll need something to plug the gap)
5. Some brand new thing which we can't even guess at yet, as suggested by Talon. Something that's not games, anime, TCG, etc.
7. Black/White 3
12. Pokemon Snap 2
16. Another PMD/Ranger sequel
17. Pokemon Dash 2
POTATO. Make ALL the regions!

All regions in one game would make for one weak game if G/S/C Hg/Ss are anything ta go by. Give it up peeps!

Just finished rewatching Arceus and the Jewel of Life. What a great a cap to D/P movie trilogy. Now to travel further back in time and unto 4ever~



edit: all official direct stream sites now in the OP!

I'm back! My mum woke me up earlier than the alarm I set, and even though I've only had 5 hours sleep I feel like a kid on Christmas day =3= Kinda stupid considering nothing game-related to Pokémon really interests me any more.

This sort of mentality really bugs me. First off, the regular main series games don't even use up half of the DS cartridge's total memory. Considering HGSS had two regions in it and that was a title for the DS, there's no reason a 3DS title shouldn't be able to store 4 regions. With companies like Rockstar pumping out games with ridiculously large maps, I really don't get why people are blown away by the idea of a multiple region Pokémon game.

Secondly, as much as Nintendo is an evil money-grabbing corporation they're not likely to limit the potential of their games just so they can generate more sales on future titles. If you're that pessimistic about the Pokémon series, especially with this announcement being so heavily hyped, I don't see why you'd bother buying any of the games period.
