Here are some choice tidbits from Pokemon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara in a note attached to this morning’s Japanese press release.
- In addition to existing Pokemon, there will be a large number of completely new Pokemon. The additions will bring the total number of Pokemon in the franchise from the current 649 to over 700.
- Because of Pokemon X and Y, the Pokemon anime, movies, card game, and merchandise will “break into a new dimension.”
- People around the world will be able to simultaneously experience “Real Play.” (I’m assuming this is referring to the game’s global October release.)
- The game will utilize the 3DS to its maximum abilities to leverage its overwhelmingly beautiful presentation.
- The game uses an innovative communication system that makes it feel as if you are playing with other players around the world.
- The bonds between players and Pokemon will deepen, and Pokemon will become stronger with the new battle structure.
- Everyone will enjoy the game’s scenario and music.
- Having over 700 pokemon means introducing a minimum of 52. That's about half as much as the current smallest generation. But it also likely means there'll be less than 800 pokemon, maybe even less than 750. I think it may be the smallest generation yet.
- I like the sounds of this affecting the anime and card games. But since the card game already used 3D models in their images, perhaps it means some kind of effect on how the artwork is displayed? Maybe they'll do the whole "3D card game" thing Redakai was trying to accomplish.
- Maybe this third point means wifi and wireless interaction will be faster and more reliable.
- Basically means better graphics.
- This "innovative communication system" looks cool. Maybe something like the wiiu's features from that commercial displaying zombiu? Sounds very interesting.
- I'm really intrigued about the new battle system they mention. Yeah, the other stuff has always been there, the growing bonds with pokemon. But they do confirm the battle system overhaul. I can't say I'm either pleased or displeased about this, but I am sure as hell interested.
- Everyone will enjoy it. Everyone on earth. No one will be left unhappy. No one. Nooooo oooooonnnnneeeeeee.
