Rumor: New 'unprecedented' Pokémon game in development

On October 12 Nintendo released two of  the biggest games of the year: Pokémon X & Y for Nintendo 2DS/3DS, but the company may be already planning another Pokémon announcement very soon: Tsunekazu Ishihara, president of the Pokémon Company, will give an interview on Japanese TV (NHK channel) on October 28.

You can see a small preview (video) of the interview here.

Ishihara mentions that they started the development of an unprecedented Pokémon game this last summer which could, somehow, change Pikachu. In fact, they are worried about how this change will affect Pikachu’s popularity.

In the video we can see what appears to be Pikachu copying facial gestures:

Japanese fans are speculating about all this info. These are some of the rumors that have appeared:

Mega Pikachu (the Mega Evolution of Pikachu) could be the main character in the game.

– This unannounced game will be compatible with the recently released Pokémon X/Y and this new Pikachu could be playable in both games.

– Could the unprecedented game be related to the mysterious trailer released some time ago that showed a hypothetical 3D Pokémon game?

    Whatever it is i’m excited to see what new innovations they come up with. It’s going to be a new direction from the looks of it , maybe not handheld ? Personally i prefer it to be a 3ds game. Then again, I’m just happy that my pokemon blinks during battle now. I know they’re in their offices debating heavily and working hard to make it a good game. Pikachu’s face is very cute though.
