    According to a preview to the Japanese show, Pokemon Smash, Junichi Masuda (GameFreak) will be in person on next week's episode to showcase a new Pokemon. Following the preview, the Pokemon Facebook updated its status telling fans to, "wait until next Saturday for Pokemon X/Y news". The "reveal" will be posted world-wide all at the same time, as Nintendo deems this as something SUPER important. So, put your hype hats on and board the S.S. Hype, folks, here we go.

    "They'll never stop Pokemon!
    Have no fears, we have designs for years,
    Like one that's based on chapstick,
    Maybe one that's like a pen,
    Have we used a fax machine?

    Or, it could be like a sofa,
    But it has three legs and doo doo doo doo doo...
    Sorry for the spin-offs,
    Have no fears, we have designs for years!"

    Hear me out; what about a Pokémon that, when it evolves, duplicates itself twice?

    Oh please.

    Just go ahead and say Voltorb/Electtode, Jynx, and Mr. Mime were creative and great designs.

    Gen 1 was lazy as fuck. Stop being all nostalgiafagging.

    On topic, I'm intrigued as to what they could announce that's THIS caliber of important...

    If any Pokémon sucks, it's Jynx/Lickitung.
    If you know what I mean.

    Maybe they're bumping up the release date before October? That would be great. :3 Or they could be releasing Pokemon Z along-side X and Y. We still haven't received Pokemon Grey 1 or 2, so they still owe us 2 DS games as well.

    Nintendo deems what? All I saw were the Pokemon company and gamefreak hyping it up. Haven't seen Nintendo post anything yet.

    New info. Cool, shall be interesting. Worldwide as well, expected.

    New type coming. ;)

    Kahaha, yeah, they're totally releasing earlier than they originally planned.
    You realize they'd have to be mostly finished before they can give a release date, right?

    So...are X and Y placeholders or the real names?


    I'd mention something of the series having too much titles, but the fact that the above question isn't even meant sarcastically kinda speaks for itself.

    Well, considering the fact that they've made logos with those two letters, I highly doubt they'll change at the last minute. Not like they have any reason to anyway. Plus, it bears both significance to the axes and chromosomes, which is pretty neat imho. Furthermore, they've been referring to it officially as X and Y.

    Worth adding to the OP that, according to Pokebeach, the reveal will come in the form of both a new trailer showing a new pokemon and Masuda appearing on smash for a secret reveal.
    The official English site will probably update with the trailer simultaneously.

    after keeping quiet for so long, they better announce something amazing.

    like being able to visit old legendary related locations to catch legendaries.

    Who knows. The way they have hidden sylveon's type, I would think it will be the first showcasing it. Did you see the eevee evos image posted by the Pokemon comany.

    It's not impossible. It could go either way. This is why the next update is very exciting.
