    Default Can We Expect Another Pokémon Direct?

    Is it possible we could get another Pokémon Direct in the near future, revealing more information about Pokémon X and Y? Or will we have information revealed from elsewhere? Remember, this is a worldwide release, so GAME FREAK/Nintendo may handle things differently when it comes to how to release game information, unlike previous releases where Japan got the games first.

    Definitely. Nintendo has done a pretty good job promoting the upcoming software on their new systems as they progress through the development pipeline. While we'll probably still get Japanese info from Coro Coro and other sources, I can see the international updates being primarily done through Nintendo/Pokemon directs.

    Id say this one was successful, so they probably will do it again, maybe for major/significant game news. I liked seeing the games announced this way, Id like to see more Pokemon Directs.

    I'd be surprised if we didn't see another at some point closer to the release date.

    It will be very likely that we get wnother Nintendo Direct, perhaps every few months we'll be getting updates.

    If its not at 6 in the morning, then possibly. I would not be willing to wake up at 6 am to learn news of a new Pokemon.

    Well, the event was scheduled well for Japan who had it at 8PM in their time zone, and they decided to have it broadcast simultaneously all around the world, partly because of their system which is getting the Pokémon X & Y games released worldwide in a tighter timeframe.

    It might inconvenience you guys again if it's an announcement similar to this, because I feel like they're going to broadcast a Nintendo Direct in the middle of Japan's day, which is even earlier for you guys.

    If they are going to do another Direct, they will probably have it at different times appropriate for the time zones. I'm sure we will see more of these though, I can see them revealing Pokemon through it too.

    I think Pokemon Direct was reserved for the announcement. Further news will likely come through regular Nintendo Direct broadcasts. However with their focus on a simultaneous worldwide release, I find it unlikely that we will be getting a lot of new info solely through CoroCoro like we used to; I expect that if it is, we will get it in English sources around the same time.

    I don't really think so. This was the DON moment. Maybe one more with the last batch of information, but I don't see one as being able to do anything more than updating the websites worldwide would do. The direct gave us the introduction as a lead in to this. We'll find stuff out around the 10th of each month in Japanese when corocoro leaks, and then we'll get it in all other languages the 15th for street release when the info online gets updated.

    I wanna know how the fuck Nintendo manages to stream something online with thousands of viewers in a way that doesn't have lag. That was by far the best experience I've ever had streaming anything online. I was expecting choppy audio and even choppier visual. It was quite the pleasant surprise.

    I read an article earlier today and the person being interviewed said that more information/details will be revealed tomorrow. The interviewee is an employee from TPCi I think.

    I hope for official artworks and names of the two legendaries and perhaps their type??? If they don't reveal it tomorrow then I expect on the official Japanese Pokemon website this Friday.

    Where did you read that? I think the additional information could more than likely be this, from Pokemon Company's president Tsunekazu Ishihara.

    I'll see if I could find it. The article is from today and he mentioned tomorrow as in the 9th.

    Regarding the timing, if you want something to be on the same calendar day in both Japan and North America then it's going to have to be in the evening for Japan and the early morning for most of North America. Don't blame Nintendo, blame the international dateline.

    They'd probably swap between 8 at night and 6 in the morning between Japan and the US
