    Didn't Masuda and Iwata meet right before Iwata plotzed? I dunno if they'd a release a Direct the two filmed if that's what they did, but that could be indicative of some upcoming news regardless.

    Yeah they did. I think it's a possibility, but they won't show that if they did.

    Unless they plan on re-filming it, I can't imagine they would show it. It would stir up too many negative emotions.

    At the same time though, I would hope they would continue on with there plans and find an alternate way to announce it. Or they could even dedicate it to Iwata, and call it the final time that he speaks "directly to you." As long as they handle it right, I could see that going over well.

    Like Bguy7 said, if they package it like a tribute to Iwata, then I don't see how it would stir up negative emotions.

    It's not like no one can ever show a video of Iwata again. It just needs to be sensitive of his passing.

    Anyway, because of the rarity of Pokemon Directs, I don't think that'll be where the game is announced. I'm guessing either CoroCoro or an update from the main site.

    Yeah unless the next games are Big Deals like X & Y, I'd doubt it'd be an entire Pokemon Direct.
    If the two met for the purposes of any direct (rather than just a meeting or seeing how the games were coming along), I imagine it'd be for a general direct that would have the iwata interview at the end (like they've done with Love Plus, Monster Hunter, etc)

    That said, it would be kind of sad if the last set of things that Iwata worked on were never shown. I can easily see them not doing that, obviously, and having to re-record or totally alter anything recorded for an nintendo direct (end of july, somewhere in august, maybe even september; I'm guessing these take time to plan, film & edit) but especially interviews feel like they should be shown eventually. Iwata was a good interviewer

    I don't understand why they wouldn't show off any last footage of Iwata. Is that a Japanese thing? It happens in America all the time. They advertise it as the final interview and no one has any negative emotions other than sadness at the reality the person is no longer with us.

    It just that sometimes people can think of it being "too soon." I'm of the opinion that as long as it's respectful, it's fine, but many people think it just shouldn't be touched.

    Yeah if he filmed another direct, I really doubt they'd release it. Especially not as a tribute too him. They'd face backlash since people would say they are capitalising on the death of a beloved gaming icon to advertise whatever the direct would talk about.
    Plus it would just be weird. Iwata speaks to you from beyond the grave... to tell you to buy some games. Nintendo is too focused on their image to risk it.

    The recent revelations have left me confused. Could someone please explain to me why the Strange Souvenir exists and why XY noted an unknown region far from Kalos if this generation was going to last four years and be treated just like any other generation? If there are going to be Kalos games in which Zygarde is the mascot, then it naturally follows this new region would be available in the postgame. However, the region has elements characteristic of a new generation rather than a postgame subregion akin to the Sevii Islands, including being far from Kalos, having its own Champion (and gyms), and judging from the Strange Souvenir, new Pokemon. Would Kalos games really have the equivalent of a new generation in the postgame, and if not, would they really bring up and try to make us interested in the next generation right at the beginning of the current one if it was still four years away? I find both possibilities to be bizarre.

    Even if it's 'inevitable' that we will revisit Kalos despite the above, I think it needs to be accepted that it wouldn't be a third version or sequels, unless you want to believe that Masuda doesn't mean it when he says he wants to surprise people.

    This is all born mostly of leaping to conclusions. The former possibility is not terribly realistic and the latter isn't really that big of a deal.

    The answer right now is that there is nothing yet that at all indicates the Strange Souvenir and the region it represents will play any role in Generation VI. So don't lose the item and check back in a year or two.

    And now things are starting up again.

    The blob on the movie screen has popped up on Serebii's homepage. Trying to zoom in on my phone is kind of difficult to see, so it comes off as kind of blurry. But I can barely make out some highlighting on the top of its head, suggesting that maybe it's got shiny/slimy skin or something.

    I hope gamefreak covers this "thing" soon. I think it's related to Zygrade transformation.

    This is exciting, but the fact that the drawings were so spot on sort of dampens that excitement for me...

    Hopefully we'll get some new info this month. CoroCoro comes out on the 12th, and we could get some kind of teaser, but it's more likely we'll see something on the 23rd, at the end of Worlds.

    The fact that the earlier fandrawing of it ended up being damn near dead on is incredible!

    Still willing to be it's Zygarde's devolution of some sort.

    Several of the fan drawings showed this thing with hexagons on its head. If those were real images, it would be certain this thing was related to Zygarde. Now that we can see those drawings were inaccurate, I'd say it's still possibly a new Pokemon. Nothing besides its color definitively links it to Zygarde.

    Yeah I'm impressed at how accurate the drawings were! My bet as to what it is is still a new pokémon. New stupidest idea I've heard for it: "a new form of Solosis." -some kid at Best Buy yesterday.

    Surely looks like a Zygarde cocoon to me. It has to do with a 'zygote' at least.

    I don't know about that. To me it's looking more like a separate entity/species now.

    Yeah, looks like one weak excuse for a pokémon. I would really like the artists to stop with the "doodles created by a 5-year old" that started in Gen V (which is a Gen I love but some of those new pokémon were a mess).

    I've seen stuff like this all over the Internet and I don't really care about it imo.

    It does look rather basic in my view, so I'm at least hoping that it's not a Legendary Pokemon.

    We've had tons of really s***ty designed Pokemon starting with Gen 1. This is nothing new or is that bad considering what came before it.
