Cool. Hopefully it's Pokken Fighters but I have doubts that it will be. Hopefully also it's NOT another Pokemon Rumble game with No Online Play.

I'm thinking it will be something not very exciting like a mystery dungeon game or Rumble 2. I have a slight hope it will be that Pokken Fighters game though.

Ahem....FULL 3D, OPEN WORLD POKEMON GAME PLEASE!! *Gasp* *Gasp* *Gasp* Ok, I'm done.

Seriously, make it happen Nintendo. That game alone would justify the purchase of Wii U.

Just imagine what it could be like.

Yes, I wish it will be an open world Pokemon game announcement, but it'll likely be for an insignificant spin-off game with no real shock value at all.

Hope it is Pokken Fighters or a rpg Pokemon game on Wii U. :)

I'll keep my expectations and hype to a bare minimum.

"This stream will be hosted by Ayana Tsubaki & Bunbun-maru and features special guests Tsunekazu Ishihara, president of The Pokémon Company, as well as Nobuhiko Okamoto & Aoi Yuuki, who voiced Iris in the anime, and two currently unknown special guests."

Ehhhh.... everyone but Ishihara seem incredibly irrelevent, unless this is a game with voice acting.

It's Pokemon Art Academy

Keeping my expectations low. If it is a project for Wii U, it'll probably be something like Pokemon Colosseum. It'll probably be a spinoff for 3DS.

@Jaysonguy: Why wouldn't they just say it's that pokemon art thing? It seems weird to hold an event for something that is already announced. But, this is Nintendo so I've got my expectations in check.

#13 Posted by PikachuDude860 (562 posts) -

@Jaysonguy: Are you sure? The announcement is on the 26th. Today is the 22nd. Plus we already knew about Pokemon Art Academy. That's not "shocking" at all.

Not very excited at all, expect more of a minor announcement.....

Turns out that it really was Pokken Fighters (but they're calling it Pokken Tournament instead):

Wow, that art thing was a highlight compared to this garbage

Well add another check mark to the "did Nintendo disappoint me today?" list

I'm interested in this. I just need to see actual gameplay footage and not a trailer before I can say whether I like it or not. Hopefully Hitmonlee makes it in.

Pokken could be decent. Machamp bringing the pain in that trailer :]

Yeah Lee's another of my favorite fighting types.. I really like hitmontop too.

I wonder if bigger pokemon like hariyama will be in it.

Good question. It should as it would make a great fit for the Sumo style fighter.

Future proofing your character selection I see lol I'm pretty sure Pikachu will be in it even though it's not a fight type. It'll probably be a secret character

We think arike! :P There's no way Hitmonlee should be left out in a fighting pokemon game.

This is what I expected. I just hope that there will be a port of the game on the Wii U.

not into the idea of a pokemon fighting game using tekken's fighters moves ... pass for me

#31 Edited by PikachuDude860 (562 posts) -

Pokken looks cool. Though I'd have to see more gameplay to really give an opinion on it.

I know Mewtwo will make the cut. It would be a crime not to have him.

And I hope my guy makes it. He's a BEAST in Pokemon X and Y.

They're using Tekken's moves? Wow I can see if you said Street Fighter's moves as Machamp kind of did an E. Honda thousand hand slap and a Zangief Whirlwind Punch. I can even see if you said Virtua Fighter as Lucario kind of did Akira's 3 hit Back attack combo but Tekken? lol

I take it you saw them fighting and saw the word Tekken and assumed from that, that it was basically a Tekken reskin (which they already confirmed that it's different than Tekken)

@nini200: pretty much lol

Lol hey I wouldn't mind that either lol I wonder if it's a tag battle type of game or 1 on 1?
