Pokémon Director Teases New Game

News of the next Pokémon game could come as soon as Monday.

Junichi Masuda, one of the original minds behind the popular role-playing game series and the director of Pokémon Black and White, the series' most recent entries, will appear on TV Tokyo's Pokémon Smash Sunday morning to make "a very important announcement," he said on his blog today.

"And, for those of you who can't watch television on live, I will announce the same information right after the show via Twitter," he said. "Everyone, I hope you all enjoy the show!!"

Earlier this week, when asked by fans for news about the next Pokémon game, Masuda said he couldn't answer just yet — but that they should watch Pokémon Smash this weekend.

Rumors suggest the new game will be called Pokémon Gray.

    Could just be that samurai one?
    Alternative could be a the inevitable deluxe repackage of black and white, hopefully for the 3DS.

    modern open world version of Gen 1 and 2? :P

    Like this;


      Imagine a pokemon game, that is built like skyrim or an mmo and you can choose to breed, gain badges, or explore or beat team rocket because its all optional!!!!??

        Never going to happen when you still have idiots buying the game on ds.... sigh

          Nothing wrong with the DS game.

          Hmm...perhaps a Pokemon MMO as previously mentioned, as a launch title for the Wii U? That's the only way I can see Nintendo doing such a thing.

      It would be awesome if they did it in the same vein of Ni No Kuni, looking like the animated series.

    Pokemon.....GREY. Sounds fun.

    I just want a pokemon game that PLAYS like Gale of Darkness... but a legit Pokemon adventure... IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK FOR!

    this sounds completely gay, but if there was a pokemon game on wii u, id actually be tempted at launch, only other game to do that would be zelda of course

      What exactly sounds "gay"? There's nothing that's been said, except that something is *about* to be said.

      So... you don't like that there's going to be an announcement...?

        Although "gay" is the wrong word. There has been nothing good from the pokemon camp beyond Gen 2. Gen 3 and onwards has been a hideous mess that has taken all the fun out and made the games nothing but a math grind with no soul.

          I'd argue that Gen 3 was fun, and Secret Bases one of the bset things since Mystery Event.

            Yeah Gen 3 was awesome, Gen 4 decent and gen 5 an adomination, They need to make ones like Gold and Silver that is two different lands so after you beat the elite 4 you go to another land and get the badges like when you go to kanto in gold and silver, maybe a big one on the 3DS that has Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova.

    How about we bite the bullet and just put it on console...... SIGH

    never going to happen when idiots keep buying the same game.

    I think I'm one of the only ones, but I would really like a gen 3 remake for 3DS.

      No you are not the only one. You are but one of many that have helped drive the Pokemon franchise into the horrendous gaming equivalent of a Justin Bieber album.

        Ok, what the hell? Whats so bad about the 3rd gen?

          Don't worry Chazz is just a troll on every article.

    why would it be a 'special announcement' to announce something like pokemon grey?

    i'm hoping for a new pokemon game altogether.

    Black 2 / WHite 2 OMG Nooooo
