“Very Important Announcement” On This Week’s Pokémon Smash TV Show


Pokémon game director, Junichi Masuda, isn’t playing around anymore. The last time we heard from him, he urged fans to watch an upcoming episode of Pokémon Smash, an ongoing television show in Japan. This was in reply to someone asking when we’d see a successor to Pokémon Black/White.


Today, Masuda let loose on Twitter and on the Game Freak blog with another tease. This time, he was a little more bold and stated the following:


On this coming Sunday, Februrary 26, 2012, from 7:30 A.M,
I, Masuda, will be appearing on TV TOKYO’s Show, “Pokémon Smash!”
Not only that. And there…
I will be making a VERY important announcement, so be sure not to miss it!!
Watch it live on TV!
And, for those of you who can’t watch television on live, I will announce the same information right after the show via twitter!!
Everyone, I hope you all enjoy the show!!


We’ll have to wait until Pokémon Smash airs to find out what the huge announcement is, but keep in mind that it could very well simply be a full reveal of Kyurem’s alternate form (which was recently discovered by fans) or a giveaway of the newly-revealed Keldeo.
