Pokémon “Surprise” Awaits At December’s Jump Festa


The Pokémon Company will be making their very first appearance at the upcoming Jump Festa trade show in Japan, reports. Today, it was announced that there will be some sort of surprise announcement at the event, but there’s been no mention of just what this is.


Before you get your hopes hopes up for a major game announcement, keep in mind that it could very well be related to manga instead, the next movie, a new Pokémon creature, or simply another giveaway (like the recent Mewtwo event).


Jump Festa runs from December 17th – 18th. We’ll keep our readers updated on any significant news that surfaces over the next month.
