    1st and 3rd of the links shows one "???". But the 2nd link shows four. So more Pokemon than that blob and big one?

    So the purple one is a new Pokémon, or forme.

    Edit: Purple Pokémon also seems to be the one of unknown Pokémon in the Quilladin set, and the one in necklaces.

    Well, this is ANIME merch, so the rest of those hidden guys are likely just Pokémon that haven't been captured or introduced or w/e.

    And don't forget that The Pokémon Company tends to act as though Pokémon don't exist if they haven't been unveiled themselves. What I mean to say is, Volcanion has yet to be officially announced, so by TPC's pattern, they're trying to treat it as though we don't know it even exists. They did the same with many other Mythical Pokémon.

    That too, but Mythical Pokémon tend to come during February.

    This merch is for November.

    Edit: Even if there were the possibility of this being Volcanion, you should bear in mind that the question mark is in purple, much like Goomy's name in this previous merch. So this really seems to be a Dragon-type.

    Edit 2: Besides, Volcanion isn't some pre-evolution or a cute(or in the case Lucario, marketable) two-stage Pokémon, it is a giant beast. Why would they put it alongside Kalos starters or the Kanto starters? I'm not necessarily saying that one of the unknown Pokémon can't be Volcanion, what I'm saying is the purple question mark, which is featured in all three sets, can't be.

    Well this isn't turning out to be a typical release schedule, so we'll probably get Volcanion's reveal in the near future as well (possibly in CoroCoro).

    You're not getting it. We're getting a lot of info now that we would normally get in February and we seem to be building towards a new game announcement in the next month or two. The news cycle is a good 6 months earlier than usual. With that in mind a January reveal would be very late, I'm thinking more like we get a Volcanion reveal this month or next month (probably this month, I think we're probably even getting the game announcement by the end of August).

    I mean a reveal in CoroCoro, not an official TPC reveal.

    By January, the interest will fade away. It looks like they're ready to announce something. You don't wanna lose that hype by next year.


    So next week till CoroCoro hits!

    I know that's definitely not the new Zygarde forme or Pokémon, but it could possibly be Volcanion.

    I think we might get a Direct in September with Pokemon Z Announcement. Do you think we will get new Pokemon (Pokemon 6.5) or be similar to B/W2

    So there are four unrevealed Pokémon/forms in the upcoming merchandise? Wow.

    I hope it's gen 6.5. Kalos needs redemption in some way.

    If that purple mon is a dragon type and is shown sleeping I wouldn't be surprised if it's the long-awaited Dragon-type Eeveelution...

    The Pokemon itself is probably purple considering Goomy is purple and Lucario was blue.

    Gen 6.5 still seems kinda dumb. We could very well be looking at an early glimpse of gen 7. Which is kinda weird seeing as Zyagrde's game hasn't even been announced.

    Well, there's three things we know that this generation still holds in store for us. Before we go wild about the possibilities of Seventh Gen, we should think logically about the possibility of what is most likely to occur given what we know still needs to happen.

    1.) Volcanion still needs to be officially revealed, in any sort of capacity.
    2.) Hoopa's movie still needs an international release, as well as it's movie being released internationally as well. It's Japanese event was in-person only, and ends next month.
    3.) Zygarde still needs some form of recognition as the "third" in the Sixth Gen trio of Legends.

    Now, also consider that they've been going for simultaneous world-wide launches for games. If we DO get a game, considering all that we know, I'm most inclined to think that it'll be another Sixth Gen game to buy them more time and budget to put toward the new gen.

    What exactly does that have to do with the timing of the next game's announcement? Of course it'll probably be 6th gen, I think most of us agree that the next game will be a 6th gen followup to XY that may or may not have entirely new Pokemon. The question I'm asking is when, not what.

    I've seen several people saying that this'll be Seventh Gen. I've seen several people saying that this "new Pokémon" means they're jumping straight to Seventh Gen and buying one-way tickets on the hype train.

    I think our Poke-Blob friend is likely a Gen 7 Pokémon, but I don't think that means we're going straight to Gen 7 just yet. Bonsly and Munchlax debuted in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness a year before Gen 4 officially started with the release of Diamond and Pearl. We can still have at the most one or two Gen 7 Pokémon show up in any Pokémon-related media/merchandise while we're still in Gen 6.

    And now you know you can probably safely ignore most of those people in the future. It's like helpful Internet Darwinism almost.

    It's different nowadays because things are much more immediate. Back then internet wasn't as huge globally, they HAD to advertise upcoming games through anime appeareances since there wasn't that much access to japanese magazine scans nor Youtube/other video social sites were that big. So they had to promote for several months, even years before a main release.

    Now they've got to keep the momentum going with monthly updates/reveals, otherwise kids lose interest/hype very easily.

    They haven't really done that since 3rd -> 4th gen though, and there's good reasons for them not to. If you promote a next gen Pokemon before the last game in the generation, that pretty much eclipses what they're still doing with 6th gen. If the fans know that a completely new Pokemon game is just around the corner, they're going to be less interested in an updated version of the game they already have. So they run the risk of losing sales that way. I think whatever they're doing for this movie we'll see in the next game and they won't start promoting 7th gen stuff until the 20th movie in 2017.

    Following Generation logic, I think it's too early for GF to announce Gen 7.

    What'd I tell you guys? These kinds of announcements always happen just before a new game is announced. At this point I'd be shocked if we don't know about the next game by September.
    Oh man

    I forget, how long were the clearly-keldeo and clearly-shaymin and Notch Eared Pichu ??? bubbles on merch before they were revealed?
    I'm guessing at the very least the weird blob is the purple circle associated with the sleeping pokemon and the necklaces

    I can't find Pichu's, but I did find something interesting about Keldeo: It's Resolute form was hinted at in the May 2012's Corocoro magazine with the line “Keldeo starts to become clad in light when in a pinch!” “Is this a harbinger of something happening? Wait for the next update!”, it was then revealed fully in June's. Since we got something similar with Zygarde's (a hint towards a new Pokémon/form), I imagine that we'll get information either this month or early next month.


    It's time to return to the old, soaring back to Hoenn!

    I'll reel in my pessimism a little bit and say this month will just be stills of the trailer with lots of exclamation points, next month will be the reveal
