Is it just me, or does this sound similar to Yu-Gi-Oh Chess?
(It does exist.)
As if the Genius Sonority listing weren't confusing enough, the recent movie teaser was followed by:
"More information on this movie will come on the official site on December 17th."
Ordinarily they would update the site immediately, but since the date coincides with Jump Festa, maybe they are going to reveal Kyurem's Forme or Keldeo and that's the reason for the delay.

I hope that they will reveal more at Jump Festa. Although, didn't they say that they were mostly focused on the games and Battle Chess and NOT the movies, or did I misread something? But if so, the Jump Festa announcement could be about Keldeo and the distribution for the games, and then, after Jump Festa, show a trailer for the 15th movie with Keldeo.
Kyurem's Forme or Keldeo in Jump Festa, it seems that it will be tied to a game promotion.
Just keep tellin' yourself folks... "10 more days... 10 more days..." There's so much hype about this whole thing that I highly doubt it's something like the MD or Ranger games like some have suggested. I'm either going with the 3rd version or the Gen V Stadium.
As far as the Genius Sonority listing, I have a question since I can't read Japanese on the Jump Festa site. Since Genius Sonority has been known to make non-Pokemon games, is there a possibility that they might be at Jump Festa for something else? Or is Genius Sonority specifically listed to be at this particular announcement regarding this particular game?

Have you heard of the saying "opening a can of whoop-ass"? I did that once in a dream.... I opened an aluminum can labled "whoop-ass" on somebody, and they disintegrated.

If it is a new game, then wouldn't CoroCoro reveal it before December 17th 2011?
#PokemonXY 3DS XLs launch September 27th! :D
One would expect so. Then again, at least the movie website is only going to be updated on December 17th, and normally the official website is updated on the 15th to go along with CoroCoro.Originally Posted by Teeboy
That's the thing. The surprise reveal date is the same as the extra info date in the Oho Shouta vid, and anything can happen. Best thing to do right now should be to just wait for Pokemon Smash on Sunday, surely they would have some sort of preview for such news when the reveal happens on the Saturday before next week's Sunday. Right?
In my opinion it could be about either. I think we will definately get a reveal of some kind related to this at Jump Festa, right now that seems to be the way things are heading. Either way we get news soon, possibly something from CoroCoro in a week's time.
I'm actually getting worried about whether or not there will be any game announcement, as the description of the December 18th episode of Pokémon Smash only mentions movie information. When Origin Forme and Shaymin were revealed in February 2008, nothing was directly implied about future games just yet.
The anomaly is the Jump Festa website, which doesn't mention the movie at all and suspiciously contains the "Developed by Genius Sonority" listing. Perhaps there has been a change of plans.
I think that whatever the game is that is being released on the DS in spring will be announced in Coro Coro, and the Jump Festa will be used to help promote the game. We surely must be getting info on the game this month, so Coro Coro or Jump Festa is the perfect time. Im thinking the surprise announcement is just about Keldeo and more info on the movie.
The problem is that Pokémon Smash has always covered recent game announcements (most recently with Rumble and PokéPark 2), and I'm fairly sure that the relevant episode previews have always mentioned a game scoop. This time the preview only mentions the TCG, Battrio and a movie announcement.will be announced in Coro Coro, and the Jump Festa will be used to help promote the game. We surely must be getting info on the game this month, so Coro Coro or Jump Festa is the perfect time.
If it ends up being the console game(Stadium type game) then it better be similar to Stadium(I miss rentals and mini games) Or at least like XD and COL.
I've talked with Serebii about this, and it seems that this isn't the first time Pokémon Smash hasn't foreshadowed a new game (it happened with Rumble). However, he pointed out something else, which in my opinion is more worrisome. The official website was updated with a Battle Chess BW commercial today, and oddly enough the icon they used for the update was the one used for the spin-off games (the "Other Games" category), even though they would normally label it under the "Goods" category (as they do with the Battrio sets). This, the Genius Sonority listing and the fact that the sprites in the chess set resemble the Trozei ones, make it seem inevitable that Genius Sonority's next game will be directly related to Battle Chess BW.
I think everyone would be wise to lower their expectations if they weren't low enough already.
