    Cruelly stolen like a stealth ninja pirate zombie from IGN:

    "US, March 20, 2007 - Pokemon Diamond & Pearl are still among the hottest DS games around, but Nintendo isn't just sitting on the license. First hints at an all new entry in the Pokemon series managed to find their way into the latest issue of Japan's Famitsu magazine, and our army of translators have been parsing through the details all day to deliver this report.

    Different from Diamond & Pearl, this new entry isn't one of the main RPG entries in the Pokemon franchise (most notably, it isn't the expected third entry in the Diamond & Pearl series). Instead, developer Chunsoft is once again taking on the license for an as-yet unnamed dual SKU release set for Japan some time this year.

    Chunsoft previously worked on Pokemon Mysterious Dungeon, a dual SKU release that hit Japan in late 2005 (followed by international releases in 2006), with one entry coming to the DS and one to the Game Boy Advance. This unexpected pairing of the Mysterious Dungeon series with Pokemon was a huge worldwide hit, selling over 5.5 million copies.

    This time, both versions of the game will be on the DS, allowing Chunsoft to further take advantage of the DS's unique feature set. The game will make better use of the dual screens, and will even include Wi-Fi support. The game's designers are hoping to give players the feeling of playing with others.

    That's all we know at this point. It's unclear if the new game will be a Mysterious Dungeon title. But we're pretty sure it will have Pokemon, and that should be good enough! With a 2007 release, specifics shouldn't be too far off."

    I've just realised that I've never actually played Mysterious Dungeon game!!

    I hope it's not a mysterious dungeon game. I really didn't enjoy it at all.

    I was expecting a name in hopes it would not include the words "mystery dungeon" when I read the thread title. That damned game was the same repetitive "clear the long as hell dungeon" one after another.

    I tried playing the Dungeon one but I kept being given a gay Pokemon (what does that make me?) so gave up, plus the battles are stupid.

    I WANT BULBASAUR!! BULBA BULBA BULBASAAAAUUUUR.

    Screw you guys, I loved Mystery Dungeon. And from what I'm hearing, they're overhauling the gameplay supposedly.

    Let's say it like this...

    - Cut down the length of dungeons
    - Give it some 3d fighting sequences to spice it up ( and destract from the boring battling )
    - Don't make you loose items ( you can loose money, no problem there but not vital items you can't get anymore! )
    - Allow to choose pkmn at the beginning ( no question stuff but pick-a-hit )
    - Allow to evolve during the game not after you beat it
    - Allow more team members and doing perhaps things like a "support row" which does not fight but influences the stats of the "fighting row".

    If they do this and more then it would be something interesting and not that much of a dull time killer game for when you have nothing else to do.
