New Pokemon game in Spring 2012?

During Nintendo's Financial Conference earlier today, an upcoming Pokémon game was mentioned, set for release in Japan this Spring. Of course, since this wasn't an announcement towards the audience, no additional details were provided. We can only speculate whether it is a main series game or another spin-off for the 3DS. Considering all main series games since Emerald in 2004 have been released in September in Japan, a spin-off seems more likely but only time will tell. With the game coming out this soon, it is possible that we will have an official announcement quite soon!

15th Pokemon Movie teaser and Winter Deerling skin

Yesterday, the japanese variety show Oha Suta aired the first teaser trailer of the upcoming Pokémon movie. The 30-second clip shows the Musketeer trio, Cobalion, Virizion and Terrakion as well as Kyurem and also revealed the title of the movie, "Kyurem vs the Sacred Swordsman" [キュレムVS聖剣士]. Although it's not confirmed yet, we can assume that the Sacred Swordsman is probably going to be Keldeo as the common pattern in the previous years is that unreleased Pokémon are first revealed in the movies.
