Pokken Tournament Is Not the Main Pokemon Thing in Early 2016
« on: August 26, 2015, 02:17:00 AM »

We hope that means there’s something bigger!

Something more significant than Pokkén Tournament may be coming early next year to celebrate Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, as we learned in an interview with The Pokémon Company International’s Director of Consumer Marketing J.C. Smith, at the 2015 Pokémon World Championships in Boston last weekend.

During a discussion about The Pokémon Company’s plans to celebrate Pokémon’s 20th anniversary in early 2016, we asked about Pokkén Tournament and its place in the overall celebration.

“Will Pokkén Tournament be…is that your main plan for the early part of the 2016 anniversary?”

In response, Smith simply said, “No.”

However, when pressed further, he stated, “I’m splitting hairs. No, there’s lots of stuff planned for the 2016 year but nothing I can talk about now.”

If there is something larger than Pokkén Tournament, there’s no telling if it’s a mainline game, a more substantial spin-off, or something out of Pokémon’s other sectors. And to be fair, this could also suggest that there is something (or some-things) of equal importance to Pokkén Tournament coming in the early part of next year.

Look out for our full interview with J.C. Smith on Monday.

He's clearly referencing The Great Detective Pikachu for 3DS which has been floating around for a few years now.

It sounds to me that he's just referring to 2016, nothing to suggest early 2016.

During the interview, I was careful to ask early 2016, and that "No" was the direct response.

Journey Across America 2016!


Or something. At the end of the 10th anniversary, they said "We'll see you for the 15th anniversary!", and nothing ever happened.
