Earlier today, we learned an anime TV special that re-tells the story of Pokemon Red and Green will air on Japanese television this fall and as cool as that is, it wasn’t the most interesting piece of news to come out of the Pokemon Game Show however.
Pokemon fansite Serebii reported that an intriguing (but brief) high-definition clip appeared at the end of a highlight reel recapping the video game history of the Pokemon franchise. In the clip, 3D models of Lucario and Blaziken prepare to fight one another, before the reel fades to black.
A Youtuber by the username of SIZUMA1 later provided video evidence:
Now this very well could be just a piece of CGI for an ad campaign or something like that but given the nature of the video itself, I’d say it’s much more than likely this is a teaser for an unannounced Wii U Pokemon game Game Freak has in development.
Of course in typical Internet fashion, fans have spent the day wildly speculating what this “hypothetical” game could be. Some think it’s a teaser for Pokemon Stadium 3, while others say it might be a new entry in the Pokemon Colosseum series or a sequel to Pokemon Battle Revolution. Heck, I’ve seen a few who think Nintendo has finally caved and decided to make a console installment to the main series (pfft. That’d be the day). Then again it could be something entirely new...a fighting game maybe?
I have no idea what this is. All I know is that it looks awesome and that I want to try it out.
Once news of what this teaser is advertising hits the web, we'll be sure to report it back you g1s!
