    An entirely new "Pocket Monsters" series is under development for release in 2010.

    The Pokemon Company (headed by Tsunekazu Ishihara) has announced that the newest work in the Pocket Monsters RPG series (Game Freak, Nintendo) is being developed for the Nintendo DS for release by the end of 2010.

    Since its first entry, "Pocket Monsters Red and Green" from 1996, the "Pocket Monsters" series has received high acclaim from customers around the world for its distinctive universe and gameplay that involves communicating between different versions to trade and battle. Sales for the entire series have climbed to over 130,000,000 copies worldwide.

    The "Pocket Monsters" series for the Nintendo DS made use of the dual screen, touch screen, and Wi-Fi connection for play. The latest project under development is a completely new work, coming four years after "Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl" which boasts worldwide sales of over 17,150,000 copies (over 5,800,000 in Japan). It should make an innovative, fresh start by adding even more new game play and new Pokemon.

    Please anticipate a later article with news about the game's content.

    This is great news too me. What do you guys think? is it too early? Or just right.

    The only things I would accept are new gameplay, NPC radius detection (instead of line-of-sight) and a Girafarig evolution line (coz that thing can be a b***h)

    Let's face it - Pokemon HAS NOT CHANGED since Red and Blue/Green. It's the same damn game, with just more Pokemon and a different map. The same story, though, every time: Start, go to grass, get a starter Pokemon from one of three, battle your rival, go to gyms, battle your rival hundreds of times, stop an evil team bent on conquering the world, beat MORE gyms, fight in a huge tournament. End game.

    Pokemon should have a reboot.. with a new gameplay elements and a new battle system.. at least give us 3D models battling like the console games, the DS is powerful enough for that!! :/

    But I doubt Nintendo will have the guts to risk something new with their best selling franchise

    Indeed.. every game kinda reboots the story and the world (altough they're all suposed to be in the same world, but different continents.. I think).

    But I'm talking about a gameplay reboot.. with some significant changes.

    All the Pokemon games till now were the same but with more pokemons and better graphics :/

    The depth of Pokemon games hasn't changed since the series inception. It can remain the same game, but they really need to start concentrating on a newer style of playing. The last "new" Pokemon game I played was Sapphire, and that was the most boring thing I could remember playing at the time. I had already played Blue and Gold, and after those, enough was enough.

    Perhaps they should look towards the Dragon Quest series, where each new game concentrates on a new method of exploration and story telling each time.

    This is shocking, actually. Pokemon has been as constant as a drum beat: two RPGs per platform, not counting spinoffs. This is a definite break.
