Seems likely. It'd be a pretty stupid move to show that in the commercial and not have it come out in North America.

Not technically confirmed by Nintendo, but it looks likely that it will come out... maybe around the time X and Y come out.

If it did I would buy it. I haven't had a 3ds since I sold mine last year, but I would buy that day one no hesitation.

OR THIS ONE! Anyway, might consider getting an XL if this comes out. Probably won't though, $200 can be spent on other games.

I'd rather have the Charizard version, but I'd take the Pikachu version without hesitation. Only dilemma I'm facing is when it will eventually come out. I'd like to register a 3DS XL before April 30th so I can snag a free game since I'm getting Luigi's Mansion later this month.

If I don't hear anything by mid-April I'll just go with a basic XL.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeet. I came close to buying a tablet earlier today, but decided to wait and see if the pikachu 3ds was legit so I could use the money on that instead. Glad to see my patience paid off!!!!

Rumor is March 24th will be the release date!!!!!!!!!! Yayyyyyyy I am sooooo happy that I held off on getting a XL. NOTHING BEATS A YELLOW PIKACHU ONE!!!!!!!!!! Not even the Charizard one beats it because of the pop that the yellow gives.

The release of the Pikachu 3DS XL coincides with the release of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, which also comes out on the 24th. I wouldn't be suprised if Nintendo revealed a bundle of the two.

Someone is paying attention. ;) Nice point to make. They brought the Pikachu 3DS XL out in the UK and it could've been marketed better through doing this, if they held out they could've done the exact same thing, oh well. The amount of trainers I'm going to see with this 3DS now though, there's going to be heaps!
