New Pokemon game reveal teased in Japanese magazine, info coming by January 14

Pokemon Black and White were some of this year’s best titles and a great farewell to our DS’s before the 3DS took center stage. After Pokemon Rumble Blast hit the 3DS a few months back, things had been quiet on the monster-collecting front, but rumors of incoming announcements are in the air. The most recent news to fuel that fire is Japanese magazine Coro Coro teasing that its January issue will feature new info on a Pokemon game announcement.

Above: Probably something like this, only different

In the past Coro Coro has had some huge Pokemon reveals, including the first fifth gen monsters and other goodies, so it only makes sense they’d get some big reveal. However, don’t assume that you’ll have to wait for January 14 when the issue comes out to know what’s in store for Pokemon, as it’s quite possible you’ll know by the end of this weekend, thanks to a little thing called Jump Fiesta.

Held in the same convention hall as Tokyo Game Show, Jump Fiesta is technically to celebrate manga, but games are often announced at the annual event. This year’s Jump Fiesta is the first one that will be attended by The Pokemon Company, which pretty much guarantees something will be revealed there. Whether it’s exciting like an expected third iteration for Black//White, something boring like an update to the 3DS Pokedex, or something in-between (crosses fingers for a Pokemon Snap! 3DS sequel), our bet is we’ll know very soon, and that Coro Coro will follow that reveal with the first real preview of that new thing. We’ll keep you posted if anything Pokemon-related or otherwise breaks at Jump Fiesta this Saturday.

    If it's the 6th gen of Pokemon then I'll shit myself. One can only imagine what the extra polygonal power in the 3DS will bring.

    i'll take a 3rd version if its for the 3DS but i think its too early for the Ruby and Sapphire remakes (but they will be coming). I'm with Hank though, pretty much from the moment i got my 3ds i've thought a Snap remake would be perfect of it
  • ThatGamerDude - December 14, 2011 3:38 p.m.

    I still want my R/S/E remakes
  • SumthingStupid - December 14, 2011 3:07 p.m.

    i hope it isnt a 3ds exclusive
  • shawksta - December 14, 2011 4:44 p.m.

    It probably will be, some think it Should be.
  • SumthingStupid - December 14, 2011 5:01 p.m.

    i dont mind if they have a 3ds version i just want a ds one too, i dont really have the money to get a 3ds one and then they always do one time only pokemon wifi giveaways
  • marioman50 - December 14, 2011 2:59 p.m.

    Pokemon Gray?
  • SparkleDevon - December 14, 2011 2:34 p.m.

    I vote Pokemon Channel 2, Pokemon 3D Snap, and Pokemon Grey <3
  • shawksta - December 14, 2011 2:14 p.m.

    They apparently call it a "Shocking announcement" possibly a new 3DS Pokemob Snap. Whatever it is, calling it "Shocking" will be of big interest.
  • lilbuddha - December 14, 2011 2:11 p.m.

    I've been a Nintendo fan long enough to know that they will not be making any "dream" remakes until the series is dead in the water, and in dire need of reboots. Pokemon is still successful and popular, therefore, I do not expect a pokemon snap sequel nor a full 3d pokemon rpg (or any variation of each). Pokemon Pinball 2 methinks.
  • CommanderCrunch - December 14, 2011 5:18 p.m.

    Actually, it would be the third Pokemon pinball game. there was the original on GBC and Ruby/Sapphire on GBA.
  • Moondoggie1157 - December 14, 2011 1:49 p.m.

    I would buy a 3DS just for Pokemon Snap. A console RPG would justify me stealing my brothers wii. I don't think Grey version would be such a secret, this is something else. I hope. Just no more ranger games, please.
  • WTeen8 - December 14, 2011 1:29 p.m.

    pokemon snap 3D would be epic win
  • ChaosEternal - December 14, 2011 1:39 p.m.

    Do want! I played the original on the N64, good memories. Now just add a couple hundred more pokemon and a few dozen more courses... Oooh, and maybe you move the camera with the Gyroscope! What fun we could have. :3 CAPTCHA: matergat concluded
  • codystovall - December 14, 2011 1:11 p.m.

    Ill hold my excitement until what kind is revealed. But a snap 3ds would rock my world. Or main game or even a pokemon pinball. but anything else like mystery dungeon, trozei etc........meh
  • LEGOMatrix - December 14, 2011 12:59 p.m.

    Only three things would peak my interest at this point, all on 3DS. In order of excitement: 1) RPG sequel to XD Gale of Darkness with online stadium component 2) Upgrade of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald 3) Pokemon "Grey" Of course, there is always the trumpcard "main series: home console mmo version", but I don't think that wil ever happen so I won't include it.
  • Romkslrqusz - December 14, 2011 12:44 p.m.

    Well, time to pick up a 3DS :D
  • jackthemenace - December 14, 2011 12:35 p.m.

    As excited as I AM, it's almost definitely going to be 3DS exclusive. Since I know I'm not going to buy either a 3DS OR a Wii-U, I really don't see any way to play it if it is :/
  • soggysage - December 14, 2011 12:20 p.m.

    I am excite! Does this also mean a new Pokemon Monday will be coming soon?
