Rumour: New Pokémon Game Announcement Next Month

By Ishaan . April 23, 2011 . 3:00pm

Dengeki Nintendo DS magazine will be making a new Pokémon game announcement next month, according to a Japanese Pokémon blog, which broke the news earlier today.


The next issue of Dengeki Nintendo DS hits Japan on May 21st. There’s no news yet of what kind of game this will be or what platform it will be available for.


Note: Taking into account this isn’t a blog we were previously aware of, and that fake Pokémon scans are no rare occurrence, we’re marking this as a rumour for now.

  • They didnt let the wallets get cold lol

  • Oh my Arceus, please be Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DS/3DS. I would be so glad to experience another emotional rollercoaster of a story and be partners with a pikachu again, though it says Dengeki Nintendo DS…would 3DS news be in it?

    • Caligula

      this is completely irrelevant, but your seductive avatar really disturbs me.

      • What’s disturbing about Alexandra?

        • Caligula

          There’s nothing disturbing per se about her… it’s more that you’re using a picture of an alluring, seductive woman in general when you’re male. It just creates a really weird picture in my head.

          then again, I’m the one using a bust of a psychotic dictator as an avatar, so I guess I really don’t have any place to talk about avatar choices.

    • darkfox1

      Unrelated to topic but is that a female you have in your Avatar pic there Tsuna?

    • this!
      and include 5th gen pokemons
      i want see some of the pokemon’s personality

  • Oh-hoooo

    Looks like a third version, I’m guessing 3DS special stuffs o 3o;;;

    EDIT: Oh. The annoucement is just the part in blue LOL

  • neetloaf

    Seems far too early for a Pokemon Grey or R/S remake announcement. I’m putting my money on the next installment for Ranger/Mystery Dungeon… and hey I wouldn’t mind!

    • I don’t know, crystal came 1 year after gold and silver and emerald took 1 year and 1-2 months I think for the release after ruby and sapphire. Black and White are long out in Japan, Grey shouldn’t take too long to be announced now.

      • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

        Crystal was 1 year and 2 months. Emerald was 1 year and 10 months. Platinum was almost 2 years on the dot

        • Ah, Ok. Should’ve looked into it a bit better it seems~ xD
          In that case I agree, would be too soon.

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      Crystal was released about 1.2 years after HG, but Pokemon Emerald and Platinum were announced about 1.5 years after the main games’ release, with their own release being another .5 year after that. It’s only been 8 months since BW release, so I agree, it does seem a little early. Plus it doesn’t seem like something they’d announce in Dengeki Mag

    • Mmm, I don’t see them announcing Grey this early on either. Pokémon is 100% a very global game, and news of a third version spreading after Black/White just released outside Japan might put ideas in people’s heads.

    • PrinceHeir

      i wonder what set of colors are they going next? Violet? Pink?

      • puchinri

        I like those colors. And they’d match the season. (I prefer indigo over violet though. Maybe violet and pink or indigo and navy?)

      • Nice choice in colors, I’d go for violet :D

      • Wiccan1109

        I think they still have brown, purple, pink and cyan left to choose from. Unless maybe they did a baby pink and sky blue version, im sure the girls would go mad for that. They could always use more gemstones too, or something more descriptive, we had heart gold and soul silver so maybe now we can get blood red, sweat yellow and tears blue.

        I’d imagine they have an expert team of japanese scientists working around the clock on inventing a new colour for use on the series that currently doesnt reside in this realitys colour spectrum. Thatd be a great marketing gimmick too.

      • Pokemon Rainbow will end it all!

    • Why grey, it should be pokemon dalmata… pffft hhaahha xD i just cant with myself sometimes haha

    • thomas webster

      they are making pokemon mystery dungeon: lets go blazing fire team! for 3ds and wii

  • vadde939

    I’m guessing it’s the third version to accompany Black/White (Grey?). Will be interesting to see if they keep it on DS or go for an updated 3DS version instead.

    • Well, Kyurem, the third Pokemon in the trio Reshiram and Zekrom make up, is identified in the Pokedex as Grey colored so… Yeah… It* would be Pokemon Grey.

      *(The 3rd 5th generation main game, which this announcement is probably not about)

  • Caligula

    I wish it’d be something in the main series since I dislike most of the spin-off games, but I doubt it.

    I’ll love them forever if they announce a remake of Pokemon Snap, though.

    • PersonaBull

      Seconded. I never cared for the spin-off games much, but Pokemon Snap was so fun~ I’m surprised they haven’t made one for the Wii yet, honestly.

    • I dont understand why people want that one, nostalgia? From my knowledge, the original could be finished essentially in one night rental from Blockbuster. I just dont think the game would be worth $39.99 and content full.

      • Caligula

        It’s a very simple game, I agree, but it’s got its own charm to it. idk, I just always found it kind of fun.

        • Zero_Destiny

          Pokemon Snap = Thumbs Up. It’s just a perfect Chill Game. ^_^ It’s just very relaxing and fun. Great entertainment. Love that game. Need more like it.

    • Pokemon Snap 3DS, Take pictures of your own environment, full of pokemons lol
      I would gladly surrender my money to you Nintendo <3

  • Reitsumi

    Oh come on!, let us enjoy Black and White a little more

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      The game announcement would be in Japan, who will have Black and White for about 8 months by the time this announcement is made

    • Suicunesol

      You will. Whatever this game is won’t be coming to the states until 2012.

      BW has been out in Japan since September 2010.

      • It honestly doesnt make sense, at least, in Japan to do Gray so soon, just look at the weekly sales, plus the last third version for a Pokemon game came out in Japan two years from its release…

  • I’m betting my money on Grey, and I take the risky stake and say it will be for the 3DS, now come on Nintendo play your cards!

  • Come on! Give us a Ruby/Saphire Remake NAO!!!!

    • ninjaonizuka

      YES!! everyone needs that game lol

    • A R/S remake for the 3DS would be AMAZING!
      It wouldn’t make any sense to make it for the DS >_>

      • Code

        Well not entirely true, since there’s a huge DS sales base already and 3DS only adds to that. But yeah 3DS would benefit from a Pokemon title out of the gate.

        • Valkyrine

          Ruby Saphire remake on 3DS with Augmented Reality like invizimals. That would be so cool to see Pokemon battles against other people that way. Then the 3Ds would have huge sales.

          • Code

            That’s maybe a little ambitious for Nintendo; but be damned if I don’t really, reallyyy want to see that omo;;

    • KHSoraKeyBlade

      I can only imagine we won’t see them until at least 2013 to mark the 10 year anniversary of both games.

  • And here comes Pokémon Grey.
    A Ruby/Saphire/Emerald Remake would be a lot better, though.

  • Could this be the 3DS and Wii versions that they mentioned some time ago?

    • Hmm like an updated Pokemon Battle Frontier (or better yet, Stadium 3) and a Gray version for 3DS, with Kyurem as the center focus? That could be interesting . . .

      • MrRobbyM

        Pokemon Stadium 3. Please make my dreams come true. Battle Frontier was complete garbage compared to the Stadium games.

  • LastFootnote

    I think I’m finally done with Pokémon. Maybe if someday they actually try to balance the game I’ll come back. That day is a long way off, though.

  • It’s probably the counterpart Wii game for Black & White.

  • Grey or R/S Gen V update plzkthnx.

    We don’t need news versions yet, spend a little more time thinking of how to ‘overhaul’ pokemon. Black and White was a great update and fixed a lot of problems, now they need to really make a blow out of a game… And it’s a bit too early for that.

    • Caligula

      Oh, believe me, this won’t have to do with a sixth gen. Seeing as how they tend to space the games out 3-4 years apart, they won’t be releasing info on that for a while.

  • Christian Wright

    can i please catch them all in white first?!?!?!

  • took note of this earlier, so there’s definitely a game coming, just no one knows if it’s a spin-off or “Pokemon Grey”.

  • Suicunesol

    I actually really hope this is Mysterious Dungeon for 3DS.

  • Mhhhh?…. Let me guess, Pokemon Grey (#.#)

  • ninjaonizuka

    ok i think its to early for a totally new main Pokemon Game (Gray) so its most likely a spin off or a Wii/3ds game.

    But what i want them todo is remake pokemon colosseum! or a Rpg Pokemon on WIi or 3ds PLEASE! that would be great :D

  • new game??

  • Maybe the third game of the gen to go along with Black and White?

  • Pokemon Gray?

  • karasuKumo

    Pokemon Pinball 3DS is my bet.

  • Saraneth

    Maybe we’ll get a Pokemon Colosseum 3DS or something. I hope this time they give it a good story.

  • Its 2 early for a new one…maybe a remake?

  • SetzerGabbiani

    It’s likely the 3rd iteration that all Pokemon generations have. So like others have said, Pokemon Gray is likely.

  • Guest

    Game Freak should really make a Pokemon MMO over 3DS if that is even possible with like different regions as Servers.

  • Pokemon Gray, anyone?

  • I hope the 3rd installment is not called Gray like everyone is saying/speculating. I think Pokemon Prism (Not Rainbow…) sounds so much cooler.
