Pokémon Surprise Announcement Coming On Monday

By Ishaan . September 14, 2013 . 9:27am

On Monday, September 16th, The Pokémon Company will be making some sort of a surprise “special announcement,” which they teased over Twitter this morning.


No further hints have been made as to whether this announcement will pertain to the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games or whether it will have to do with something else.

  • LexKitteh

    I hope they finally announce Pokken Fighters! (Or whatever the Wii U game is)

  • Highasthesky

    They’re releasing X and Y on Tuesday? :D

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      uh no

  • DS23

    Pokemon’s cancelled!

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste


    • if it was the Anime then GOD YES, but the games nope..

    • Renaldi Saputra

      and Everybody will lose their mind

  • WildWolf21

    It’s Either 1 of 2 things:
    A.Pokemon X and Y is coming out sooner than expected
    B. We’ll finally hear about that Wii U Pokemon game that’s got everyone abuzz.

  • Cero55

    Pokemon Colosseum 3?!

  • Guilherme Matheus Silva

    Pikachu’ll have a mega form too?

    • MasterScrub

      I would say Raichu would be the one who mega evolves, but the poor bastard is like the unloved step child of the franchise so it wouldn’t surprise me if Pikachu was the one who did.


    • Masengan

      Pikachu should get a regular level up evolution, I have never liked Raichus design.

      • Krisi92

        All Pokémon that received a new evolution in a newer generation did in a way that wasn’t possible before. Therefore, a new Pokémon won’t ever evolve from an old one by simply leveling up, except if they reaised the maximum level over 100, but that wouldn’t make too much sense.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Jigglypuff or Mewtwo or Lucario or Zoroark confirmed for Smash Bros. 4?

  • Pdugna

    Mewtwo gets a new Mega fusion that requires Both X and Y mega evolution and will then make the Ultimate form Mewthree.

    • Syn

      THis^^^^ lol

    • Kai2591

      btw, what about the original Mew? Wonder if he’ll get Mega evo? haha

  • anthony apduhan

    Ash Ketchum is 11 years old now?

    • Sardorim

      …The return of Misty?!

      • Steven Higgins

        Probably about the games. OH, I bet they’ll finally officially announce the name of the Pokemon Fighter

    • Steven Higgins

      I think he turned 11 at the beginning of Black and White.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        nope he wasn’t

      • Not only did they reset him back to 10 they also reset his mental capacity back to zero. All the things he learned especially in the D/P saga completely gone.

  • Guest

    Pokemon XY Demo coming to the e-shop :D?!

    • Hells yes!

    • JMaster3000

      Actually i’m not anymore hot about it.
      Its only a month left before its released and if the Demo comes out, i’ll still wait for the game :P

  • RichyGaming

    BlazBlue x Pokémon, dood?!

  • Blackikun

    hope for Pokémon Snap 2 xD or the Wii U Teaser (fighting game)

  • Grape Monet

    Pokémon on the Virtual Console with Poké Transporter support?

    • lozffvii

      Goddamit! This needs to happen!

    • VenerableSage

      With Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver being left out of Poké Transporter compatibility, I can’t see Nintendo adding older games on the VC and magically supporting just those ones.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Ash is truly in a coma and that’s why he never aged?
    They’re finally saying what that mysterious HD Pokémon scene in the Japan-Exclusive Pokémon event is?
    Pokémon are real?

          • I was always a May guy, anyway. Buuuuuut that’s just me.

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            me too bro <3

      • VenerableSage

        Does that make Thundurus the Genie?

      • Suicunesol

        OMG where is that from?!

        • ShawnOtakuSomething

    • komiko12

      I can see Patrat as Timon.
      Who could be the perfect Pumba?

      • AuraGuyChris

        A super fat Tepig.

        • komiko12

          I don’t think so…
          Pumba is just so funny especially in 1 1/2.
          Can’t really think of a good pig to replace him.

          • Time Sage


          • Time Sage


      • Suicunesol

        Oh come on. What’s wrong with Hippopotas? Pumba’s not a hippo, but they give the same vibe.

      • Piloswine

  • hazelnut1112

    What is there more to know about X and Y? Please Nintendo it’s month away. Please announce that Pokken fighter game you guys teased.

    You can announce Pokemon Stadium and Snap on 3DS eShop being one of the first of many N64 games headed to the 3DS.

  • PreyMantis

    Pokemon Colosseum for Wii U?

  • Invisbin

    Pokemon X Bundle

  • bradtastic2

    If it’s more spoilers about the game I’ll be very disappointed. I’m trying to stay spoiler free about the games but every video game page on Facebook or games website just keeps blurting out new things in titles or with screen caps.

    Learning about everything before the game is released just defeats the purpose of an adventure RPGgenre, especially Pokemon. Admittedly, it’s better this time because it’s got an international release date as opposed to Japan getting it months in advance but still.


    It’ll probably never happen, but I really would want a full-fledged Pokemon RPG for Wii U. I really liked Gale of Darkness and I think it’d be awesome to have something like that on console.
