The official GameFreak website has posted a strange picture of a silhouette with a caption noting that "the well known game, played all around the world, is about to be reborn thanks to a surprising collaboration". Now, this is not known to be regarding Pokémon so don't take this as one at this time, but it's a bit mysterious wording for GameFreak

Well known game? Perhaps a franchise from Nintendo, or another company.

Thinking about the games developed by GameFreak, Pokemon and Pulseman are the two that seem to correspond with the message. However, that silhouette looks nothing like anything to come from Pulseman.

I can only believe that this is another franchise combining with Pokemon. I do not have high hopes for this, as what is pictured looks like a small horse. This can only mean bad things.

In all seriousness the people over at silicornera (the users not the staff) point out it looks like a gruntie? So maybe .hack pokemon cross over. >_> It is a well known game. Though reborn .hack is a very very scary idea with a series where everything matters.

This looks intriguing.
I can't think of anything that fits the silhouette. I have no clue about the trademark either. I think there is not much to be found from that yet.
It could be Pokémon, but then why would they put "well known game" instead of just Pokémon? Is that normal wording in Japanese?

The comment about collaboration makes it seem like the silhouette isn't from a GameFreak game.

Anyone good at art? You could take the silhouette, redraw it into something you think it would look like and do a reverse image search on Google to see if there are any hits.

meh, this could be semi-big, but then again it could be not

LEAVE IT UP TO TIME I GUESS

EDIT: FYI

It has been found that the URL includes the term Soritiba ソリティ馬, which was a trademark registered last year by Gamefreak

taken from Serebii.net

doesn't really tell us anything though AFAIK

I think I solved the riddle with this.

However, reverse image search turned very few results, and only of horses.

I doubt the chances of getting it right are appropriate, and the image the silhouette is from is likely not out in the internet yet. Nevertheless, seeing what people think it looks like could be entertaining. That horse's backside sure is. Here is my half-assed MS-Paint doodle.

Am I the only one thinking Viva Piñata? A Pokemon x Viva hybrid seems feasible.

More of a Megaman.EXE from Battle Network x Tepig, for me... O.o
While I would absolutely love anything Megaman-related (f**k you, Capcom, sell the Megaman franchise to people who will do something with it!), I doubt they would do a Megaman x Pokemon thing. .EXE/Battle Network would actually work; just change "cards" to "monz", I highly doubt it. I can dream, though...

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    still only 600-700 nits i have to use the contrast enhancer to make bright lights look as bright as they are supposed to but the alternative was the next tier up and buying a demo model that would've been about the same cost, that had 1000 nits but issues with black crush

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
