Tokyo Game Show? No, This Is Pokémon Game Show

By Spencer . June 28, 2013 . 12:28am

Instead of having a debut at World Hobby Fair or Tokyo Game Show, Pokémon is big enough to get it’s own game show. Attendees will get to play Pokémon Tretta (an arcade game), the Pokémon Card Game, and be among the first to play Pokémon X and Pokémon Y before the games come out in October.

Pokémon Game Show will take place on August 17 and 18th at Tokyo Big Sight. More information about the show will be released in the middle of July.

    Oh gods, the apocalypse is coming, must finish B2, but first must finish Fire Emblem…

    • TheExile285


      • RingoSan

        Pokemon Black 2

    • same here need to finish B2, spend too much time in making my character a famous actor that I kinda stop progressing through the game. Then holiday is over and I have little time to play the game…

  • Pokemon X & Y, you will be mine *_*

    • Renaldi Saputra

      do you want X or Y or both?

      • SerendipityX

        Y is where its at, Yo.

        • piichan

          the tough looking legendary covers always sell the most. i’ll go with X. always went with the gentle looking ones.

          • natchu96

            The tough ones are always dangerous to be around. It’s the gentle ones that scare me. They are just acting, I swear. Waiting for you to let your guard down . . .

          • SerendipityX

            You too man?! I swear Squirtle was the same, Look all cute, cuddly and then the minute you pick him up CHOMP your head is gone….

          • piichan

            *looks at shaymin*…ut look at how cute they are! *gets hand bitten off*

          • SerendipityX

            I just like that fact the Y legendary looks like he can viciously clamp down his entire body on your face and never let go.

          • komiko12

            Yeah, Yveltal is scary looking and all but have you looked at Xerneas horns? It could like kill you over and over.

          • SerendipityX

            Xerneas has probably stabbed many a poor trainer and walked around with their dead bodies hanging off his horns as ornaments to his power.

          • deadMastershiro

            Deer kill more than almost any other animal.

          • piichan

            Now I’m imagining him as a backpack. I think he’s too big to clamp down on whole person, much less a face.

          • SerendipityX

            Animal Cruelty! Yveltal as a backpack would sell gangbusters.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            pokemon is usually with animal cruelty.. so that’s reasonable

          • Neophoton

            Maybe he just wants to give a hug! …With a death grip.

        • ShawnOtakuSomething

          Y is the master race

        • Uso Ewin


        • $36598391

          Yea, X’s legendary is a Deer with crystalized tentacles coming out of it’s head and Y’s is a cool looking flying fire type legendary
          Both look awesome, I’ll get X after I beat Y
          I wonder if there will be a Z version

          • Steven Higgins

            I think Yveltal is Flying/Dark. That was said in the same post that leaked the Fairy type.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            Z and then the legendary will be ShenLong..
            whopps I forgot there had been Rayquaza

          • mike dickson

            y is a wyvern just putting that out there

      • Both. One for me and one for my sister =^_^=

  • LightGenx

    This will be the only game I need come October.

  • Gilgamesh2025

    Pokémon X for me, please!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Y’s yveltal ..Death from above. I’m so hyped about this game

    • isotrex

      They won’t see it coming.

  • Sardorim

    Getting Y, the signature Pokemon looks awesome.

  • Neophoton

    Guess I’ll give X/Y a spin while I’m at TGS. Been really hyped for these games!

  • Hinataharem

    I hope the attendees have (and are allowed to use) cameras, and regularly post on the internet.

    I need me some impressions.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Let me guess. Us Americans/Europeans are getting a chance to play the game earlier because otherwise it’d ruin the simultaneous release of news in the world, right?

  • Learii

    I go with the ones with the pokemon that I like in exclusive lol

  • artemisthemp

    They have been funny, if they had call it Pokemon XO :P

  • VenerableSage

    I saw “Pokémon Card Game” and had my hopes deflated when I realized they were talking about something with the actual TCG/CCG and not a successor to Pokémon Card GB2. :(

    Also, somewhat tangentially related: does anybody else have a gut feeling that Cobalion, Keldeo, et al. are going to end up being featured somehow in X and Y? (Maybe like how the Shiny Entei, Raikou, and Suicune were used to get the Zoroark in Black/White, for example)

    I mean, they’re based on The Three Musketeers and Kalos is based off of France after all…

    EDIT – Looking at X, myself. Still haven’t fully decided if I want to jump back onto the Pokemon train after skipping Black/White/Black 2/White 2 or not. I guess it’ll be based on transferring ability (if it extends back to Gen IV, I’ll be more likely to bite, but if it only allows Gen V, not so much; or, if it doesn’t allow it at all, I might be more inclined with the fresh start across the board…) and the extra stuff beyond the standard, boring plot outline I’ve seen since 1998.

    (I guess Pokemon diversity is another thing, too – I’m tired of only Rattata and Pidgey expy monsters right outside of my backwater starting town.)

  • Renaldi Saputra

    hmm they’re clever for making 2 versions so that the one who want to have the both legendaries, they need to buy both version so double the money..
    oh, this had happened since black/white

    • s07195

      Sure that this has been the case since Ruby/Sapphire.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        I didn’t play gen 3, but did Emerald have all pokemon in Ruby/Sapphire? I mean, we can get both Dialga and Pakia in Platinum

        • mike dickson

          yeah it was about the same you can get groudon kyorge and rayquaza in the game and some ruby and sapphire exclusives

          • Renaldi Saputra

            that means Emerald is same like Platinum

          • mike dickson


    • Link

      Well its not just about the legendaries, its always been about getting Pokemon from one game that you couldn’t in the other ever since Red/Blue/Yellow.

      Although they did remove the “version” moniker from these games, the first games to not be “versions.” So now its just Pokemon X and Pokemon Y which may hint at more, or hint at nothing.

  • isotrex

    Gotta catch ’em all. In the mean time, I’m gonna train until my body is ready. hahahaha… errrr… or wallet. hahaha
