This History Of Pokémon Video Ends With A Mysterious Tease

By Ishaan . August 17, 2013 . 2:30pm

At the Pokémon Game Show, The Pokémon Company ran a CG video depicting the Pokémon series, with a look at the different games, trading cards and other products over the years. As reported last night, the reel ends with a high-quality CG scene depicting a Blaziken and Lucario about to face off, and you can watch the clip in its entirety below, courtesy YouTube user Sizuma1:



While the entire video is CG, the little face-off scene at the ends seems a little too deliberately placed to not be interpreted as some sort of tease. The question is, what are they teasing?

    A Wii U Pokemon Stadium!

    • Anime10121

      I’d rather a fully fledged Pokemon action game, but I’d gladly take a Wii U colloseum too.

      • School Idol Addict

        I sure would love an pokemon action game with a world similar to Ni no kuni and a battle systems similar to Tales of.

    • KuroNathan

      With mini games /must/ have mini games

    • Abend

      i’d rather it be a full game instead of a 3d pokemon battler

      • 하세요

        If you’re talking about main series, then not happening. That’ll be handheld until the end of time.
        If you’re talking about something similar to XD, that would be neat. Since Gen VI is now 3DS and we have every tool that any previous Stadium-like game has such as Wi-Fi battles, we really don’t need another way to do it at a larger scale.

        • Abend

          I’m talking about a game like Pokemon xd and Colosseum but not just importing Pokemon from x and y to just battle in better 3d graphics like battle revolution did (ugh) i want a Pokemon game that has story like the shadow Pokemon series because those games where probably some of the best Pokemon games.

    • JoJo_649

      or Battle Revolution, the very first teaser for that game had awesome camera angles and destruction effects, wonder why they changed it.
      another Colosseum/XD game would be welcome too!

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Battle Revolution was a downgrade to stadium it was more like a battle sim

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu
  • PreyMantis

    A Pokemon fighting game– make it happen Nintendo.

  • Magnumsally

    Whatever it is. Its a poketease

    • Syn

      Ahhhhhh, my Avatar!!!!!! You sir, have good taste :)

  • Sergio Briceño

    I like how at the very last second a very shocked attendee starts shouting “FUC-!”

  • Shadowman

    Pokemon Stadium 3?

  • Highasthesky

    Obviously Pokemon are slowly slipping into our world, they will no longer be code in our portable devices. That final screen was a warning, they’re here……or it’s just a Pokemon Wii U game… BWAHAHAHA!!! YEAH RIGHT!!

    • Confirmed: Pokémon X Digimon!

      • Abend

        everyone knows digimon would win

        • JoJo_649

          Of course not, they would only need to send a Porygon – Z into Yggdrassil and BOOM, every Digimon in existence is erased.

          • RichyGaming


          • JoJo_649


          • RichyGaming

            1 + 1 = 11 because you put the two 1’s together.

          • JoJo_649

            2 + 2 = 22 because you put two 2’s together too xD.

          • RichyGaming

            I had waffles this morning.

          • JoJo_649

            I had Hotcakes
            Hotcakes > Waffles :P

          • RichyGaming

            Well, you can’t have waffles without SYRUUUUUUUP. AND ORANGE JUICE.

          • Lynx

            Assuming said crossover doesn’t use Savers/ X Evolution’s Yggdrassil.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            that’s yggdrasil_7d6.. masaru won against it
            face zeedmillenniummon, and you’ll know..

            even arceus seem can’t face it

            the true Digital World God / the real Yggdrasil doesn’t have physical form

          • Abend

            surely no pokemon could withstand the power of what is essentially every digimon xross’d into X7 superior mode i mean shoutmon does claim he is the digimon king that’s not every considering how powerful the other forms of shoutmon are especially omega.

            pokemon just does not compare like even at all maybe some of the legendary pokemon but those are rare one of a kinda pokemon soooooooooooooooo yeah.

            but then again masaru would just like punch mewtwo out of existence.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            you forgot zeedmillenniummon, the strongest digimon ever for more than 10 years, able to manipulate space-time.. and cannot die because it’s a wicked soul being.. shoutmon X7 can’t even stand against it (note than in xros manga, it’s just a pale copy of zeedmillenniummon by darknessbagramon).. its body is sealed with 2 pairs of magic circle (clearly sealed by the true Yggdrasil), if zeed was released from those circle, its power will be a rampage to every universe..

          • Abend

            oh right i forgot about zeed isn’t there something that is equal in power other than yggdasil?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            no, there isn’t.. maybe zeed can, but both yggdrasil and zeed can’t die.. so yes, zeed is still lose to yggdrasil bcos of the magic circle created by it being capable of sealing zeed’s true power..

        • konsama

          Obv Missigno everything to death in digital world. :P

      • fireguardiancoty

        Pokemon is already Digimon. ;)

  • Steven Higgins

    Pokemon Smackdown, Coming exclusively to PS4 and XBOX ONE. Summer 2014.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      lol, but we all know that Pokemon games won’t be on Sony console

      • Steven Higgins

        Lol I know, Or Microsoft that’s why I said it.

  • DrakeClawfang

    They’re effectively turning Blaziken and Lucario into secondary mascots for this Generation. Likely a Wii U tie-in of some sort.

  • Jesse Torres

    How about a fighter game with combos, but with pokemon, that would be cool.

  • Will Jay

    It’s PokePark 3, why else would Pikachu be jumping into that screenshot of the original PokePark?

    • Guest

      PokePark with any Pokemon playable? Count me in!

  • AuraGuyChris

    I know what they’re teasing.
    They’re teasing…us!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    MegaLucario: LUCAAARRIIOOOO!!!!

    MegaBlaziken: BLAAZZIIKEEEEEENNN!!!!

    I smell a cyberconnect2 style fighting game

    • RichyGaming

      There, I said it.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        I was trying not to…. XD

      • Internet is Crash


        • Vash bane


    • Vash bane

      if that happen…I would so flock to a wii U XD

      um.. I can see Morning Peacock vs rasengan here XDD

    • TheGameTagerZ

      I will buy a Wii U in a heartbeat if that was the case.

  • LexKitteh

    Around the 1:30 mark, a 3DS XL opens and appears to be playing Pokemon Conquest.. But the Top screen isn’t cropped like a DS game would be.. Is this an error in the trailer or hint of an 3DS version/Sequel?

    • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

      It’s a mistake, since Diamond and Pearl are showed on a sort of 3DS too.

    • DustyBlue

      I think a new Conquest game has already been in the works actually.

  • mojack411

    I think it’s obvious that this is a Wii U game tease. The question is what kind of Pokemon game. One like the Gamecube “Dark Pokemon” games? A Pokemon Colliseum? Oh I wanna know!

  • im imagining a budokai tenkaichi or ninja storm esque game and i would absolutely love it. i would just hope that they legitimately try to cram as many pokemon in while keeping it a really good game.

  • Samuel

    This time instead of horse solitaire, its pokemon solitaire. we’ve been burned a lot on console pokemon games, so I’m not getting my hopes up just yet.

  • Edzo04

    im prepared for massive disappointment but hopefully its something cool

  • Renaldi Saputra

    wait, isn’t this just repeating the previous pokemon article?

    • Nanaki

      Yes but this one contains the actual video link. This isn’t new for Siliconera.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        ohh ok

    • The video wasn’t available when the previous post went up. Someone only managed to share it a few hours later.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        ok ok I knew already

  • I bet it’s a Pokemon Stadium game. But the brief image of Pokemon Snap really makes me wish for a new installment in that series on either the 3DS or Wii U!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s been confirmed that this is Wii U game

  • Byron Kerrison II

    Pokémon MMORPG
    Complete with fully animated character models, in-depth customization, huge open-world regions to explore ( up to Hoenn ), and a host of mini-games/quests to keep you pre-occupied for years to come, including constant content updates.
    …That or they’ve finally decided to do a Gen 3 remake. Whatever floats your boat.

  • karasuKumo

    It’s clearly a Pokemon Pinball remake.

  • I hope this is the next JRPG-like Pokémon game :3 You know, like Colosseum and XD. I love those so bad *-* A Pokémon Stadium would be pretty cool too.

  • Learii

    they made all these pokemon games but I think they forgot about pokemon trading cards game since GB

  • celery

    I don’t think this will simply be a Stadium/Battle Revolution-esque game simply because those were made to showcase battles in 3D, since the main games were all 2D. Now that X&Y will be 3D, it would be redundant. So I’m thinking, and sincerely hoping, that this will be a sort of Colosseum/XD game–a console RPG that isn’t in the main series.

  • lozffvii

    Am I the only one who thinks it might be a Pokemon Type Wild-esque fighting game?
    Both Lucario and Blaziken are playable fighters in Type Wild.
    It’s not too Farfetch’d is it?
