neo2046]new original Pokemon RPG from GameFreak is undevelopment for DS now the game is planned to be released within this year and there is only an announcement for the new Pokemon no official name (subtitle) or other details yet[/QUOTE][URL]http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=386116[/URL] I figured quoting a native Japanese speaker's translation is better than me going off the Google Translate. Speculate away but keep it sane. That Heart Gold / Soul Silver thread was an absolute disaster. For those keeping track said:presentation[/URL] AuraStUrm:
I don't care that the last line doesn't have anything to do with Pokemon. It's more important than Pokemon!I'd like to introduce you to another new Pokémon title, which should become one of the most anticipated Nintendo DS titles for this year. The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have been developing a new Pokémon title with the aim to launch the software this year.
The cumulative global sales of all the Pokémon series software have reached 130 million. This new Pokémon software will become the first brand new Pokémon title in 4 years since Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, which sold more than 5.8 million units in Japan, was launched.
Of course, this totally new Pokémon title will include new fields of adventure and a number of new Pokémons living there. As a totally new version, it will contain various unprecedented experiences.
New title of Golden Sun franchise, which was announced at E3 2009, is planned to launch in 2010.
So, yeah, this is definitely Generation 5.

February 6th, 2010Hello. After a lengthy discussion among Moderators we decided this thread is pretty much harmless and speculation is not a terrible thing.
However, saying it's not a terrible thing does not mean we're looking for a flood of one line posts saying "omg ice dragon legendary!!! plzzz!" Instead we would like to see posts that discuss possible additions in Generation Five (elaborate too!) and potential implications on the metagame. Also, news on the game is always welcome.
As an example, Naxte's post that's linked in the first post is a great. Another good post is ChouToshio's - you can definitely tell it took more effort than posting "whoa ice!!"
Remember to keep this thread intelligent! I, along with other mods like Zerowing will be patrolling this thread as much as we can!

Full details at the above link. The screens from the scan below come via Serebii:More intense battle scenes
It looks like the Pokemon will engage in more heated battles this time around.
More realistic towns
The towns rise up with high rising buildings. It also seems that the Pokemon Center will have additional shops separate from the reception desk.
It's unclear what exactly the third evolution is supposed to be about. Under this section, the magazine shows screens of a dungeon and what appears to be the game's opening town.
