Thanks @kgtennispro for the heads up.

Pokemon producer, Junichi Masuda, has promised a BIG Pokemon announcement on this Sunday's edition of the Pokemon Smash show. He said it will be a "very important announcement." Could it be Pokemon Gray or a new generation game for the 3DS? We'll have to wait till 5:30pm EST today to find out.

No. This is not an image of the new game.

For anyone who's been dying for the next big bit of Pokemon news - it's time to get excited. Earlier today Pokemon producer Junichi Masuda took to the GameFreak blog with the tantalizing promise that he would be making a "very important announcement" on the Japanese show Pokemon Smash.

Here's exactly what he had to say:

"On this coming Sunday, Februrary 26, 2012, from 7:30 A.M,
I, Masuda, will be appearing on TV TOKYO's Show, "Pokemon Smash!" Not only that. And there… I will be making a VERY important announcement,so be sure not to miss it!! Watch it live on TV!

And, for those of you who can't watch television on live, I will announce the same information right after the show via twitter!! Everyone, I hope you all enjoy the show!! Ciao!"

For those of us Stateside, that translates to 2:30pm PST this Saturday, so keep an on IGN tomorrow for all the breaking news.

While we won't know for sure what Masuda will announce until tomorrow, it wouldn't be a stretch to expect the third installment in the Black and White set of games (Pokemon Gray?), or even perhaps news on the next generation of Pokemon titles. After all, the first glimpse we had of Pokemon Black and White was a silhouette of Zoroark on the Japanese show Pokemon Sunday. Still, with all the Pokemon spinoffs in existence, anything is possible.

Or perhaps it's Pokemon Snap 2... (Oh please, oh please, oh please!)

In any case, stay tuned to IGN for all the latest Pokemon news as it breaks.

Pokemon MMO for Wii U!



Nah, it will be Pokemon Gray for DS most likely.

If it was a Pokemon MMO though, I would soil myself....and I'm not even in to Pokemon very much.

Most likely Gray. But god I want a home console game. A big ass one. MMO if need be. Announced for WiiU Launch, just to pwn Sony and Microsoft for ALL TIME.

EDIT: Damn you WoS!

I really wouldn't understand it if it turns out being Pokemon grey for DS.... If its Pokemon grey I'd like for them to just make it for 3ds, keep the sprite graphics and just add widescreen. Nintendo would be hurting their need to increase 3ds sales if a guaranteed crazy seller like Pokemon grey shows up on the regular DS...

The real question is...will it be Gray or Grey?

Marsh stole my post!

And I wish that pic WAS (WERE) from the game.

Is Pokemon Grey really a BIG announcement though?

Now, if it was Pokemon Gary....

It'll be Pokemon Puzzle League 3.

...which I'd be cool with too.

Seriously though, I don't think it can be much else other than Pokemon Grey. Although last time I thought that, it ended up being a Pokemon crossover of the strangest variety.

The question is whether Gray will be 3DS exclusive or not.

Have they already announced Meloetta and Genesect, or are those still supposed to be secret? If the latter, what's the chance that this "big" announcement ends up just being a reveal on them? (I ask this because the last time I was privy to a "big" Pokemon reveal, that reveal ended up being Keldeo, which most people already knew about.)

Soon... the truth shall be revealed.

If this is for 3ds can we expect Sony to stop producing the Vita and move on?

Here's the live feed (with narration by some dude):

It's super annoying, yet I watch.

And then it got even more annoying.

@kgtennispro
That guy was obnoxious, but if it's indeed a sequel to Black and White then YAY! If it is.

Does this mean I have to play Black now!?

Talk about unexpected.

@kgtennispro

They just changed the update to "DS" instead of "3DS."

They're DS games.
