A console RPG would be pretty sweet.

I wonder what Okamoto is going to be there for. What has he been there for in the past? Great seiyuu he is.

It's gotta involve that Skylanders-esque functionality of buying a cheap toy to interface with the Wii U. Nintendo seriously can't be that stupid as to not see how perfect that would be for all the obsessed pokemon fans in the world along with the underwhelming Wii U sales performance.

Okamoto I love. :3 But Okamoto has participated in Pokemon events in the past as a personality. Last time I saw him at one was the Niconico Chokaigi a few months ago.

Have they genetically engineered pokemon? Specifically Pikachu, that would be "Shocking" right?

3DS remake of Emerald, or "Delta Emerald". Not so shocking, but it's anticipated...

Since the words "shock" and "Pokemon" together in a sentence automatically makes me think of Pikachu, I decided to go to the website to see what kanji they actually use there. After looking it up in a dictionary, it seems the word they use means the "impact" kind of shock, rather than anything that could be a Pikachu-related play on words.

...And I have no idea what it could be. I can't even begin to speculate. Though something I could play on my PS3 or (eventual) PS4 would be pretty nice, however unlikely...

Personally at the moment I'd love a genetically engineered Fennekin. Fennec foxes are sooo cute. Very Happy

I'd hope for a console RPG, but hope is irrational. I'll keep expectations low until the announcement comes.

I doubt all of this but it would be imho freaking awesome and indeed shocking:

1# The Pokemon Original Manga gets turned into an anime.
2# Pokemon MMorpg is in the works since theres a fanmade pokemon mmorpg that nintendo didn't forcefully delete yet, which already has milions of fans.
3# The next Pokemon Game will head to the Wii U and have its main focus on gameplay and real time combat and...pfffffttt sorry I couldnt stay serious. This is still Nintendo

Exactly, they were too stupid to not create their own servers to support their last gen consoles.

If it's a complete anime reboot, make the new characters teens instead of little kids and make them look like this

Maybe it will be the MMORPG we've been craving for years and years. I'd so by a Wii U just for that.

The next project would be a game which would be played by thousands of users, controlling one character at the same time.

...which twitch had done before.
