    Originally a discussion on the upcoming Nintendo direct that was to be about pokemon. The Nintendo direct has happened in a few places now and a 3ds version of the mainline series was announced. Discussion of that starts around page 8. This might be edited with a few details as and when they become more apparent.
    A trimmed announcement

    Will we finally be able to move in eight directions in Pokemon? Or dare I say it...move in 360 degrees?

    #3 is on the ds. ;)

    It's big news if Iwata himself is making a special direct about it. No spin off shits gets this treatment. Full 3D main Pokemon game is huge.

    This seems like a lot of effort to announce Pokepark 3(D).

    I like how we're inserting key words like "3D" into the conversation without any inclination that it's "full 3D" (meaning 3D models not the obvious 3D effect on the 3DS).

    A lot of announcements that are "overhyped" are done so to draw attention to a normally uninteresting announcement.

    There's actually three already. :P

    I just saw this on Nintendo.co.uk, looking forward to a potentially big announcement.

    Pokemon jp has a countdown lol http://www.pokemon.co.jp/ex/important_announce/

    Worldwide annoucement, special Pokemon direct and Iwata. Major news incoming. If it's anything, gen 6 is more likely than spinoffs. Spinoffs are just mentioned in the magazine or just mentioned without any special hype nor tease.

    So it's 12 in UK time right?
    And I think we should be hyped because I think Pokemon is coming for 3DS.

    The rate at which Pokemon games are coming out, you would think its the 25th anniversary.

    Well that's a nice time:

    Everyone under 18 in the UK / Europe is in school
    Everyone under 18 in the US is still alseep.

    Great timing Ninty.

    /sarcasm

    Edit: Oh unless it's a Japanese presentation, in which case OK.

    Eh, the series is only missing One Direction, if you ask me.

    Make it so, Nintendo!

    There's a lot of crossover between the fanbases there.
