Well, how about that. They certainly lived up to the 'shocking announcement' hype! I'm partial to SRPGs so I do hope it gets an English release. Perhaps if this goes well, we might see Pokémon in another crossover in the future.
Does that mean we'll finally get a fucking Dark Type Gym? SWEETNES!!!!

I may be grossly going overboard, but its funny that this side game actually has the potential of being the (one of the) ultimate Pokemon games. If it were a canon story then it would beyond epic and good for the series.
The way people befriend Pokemon in the distant past could be easily explained by what N does in B/W. Could simply be an lost art. On the Mewtwo thing, I could see them (either ancient priest or Celebi/Dialga) sending him to the past with ancient magic, possibly for a "soul searching" type of plot.
On another note, I love the website's BGM as well. I hope the entire soundtrack is that good.
This game is a much needed break from the Mystery Dungeon and Ranger series. That said, I'm disappointed that it is a simulation game rather than an RPG, and like with the previous spin-off games, I don't see any connection to the main series canon. Game Freak have never given us the impression that the past of the Pokémon world was similar to that of feudal Japan, and if to be honest I think it should stay that way. It also seems that the legendaries are going to be downplayed compared to the warriors that control them. Hopefully, one day there will be a main series game set in the distant past.
I don't know what CoroCoro were thinking by hyping up a "world first" announcement, as this is almost certainly the game they're going to be covering until spring.
this looks interesting, though I'm not a fan of "war"-games. I like that you start with Eeevee and I'm certain this game will appeal to a big audience.
From the trailer at 0:54. The figure looks awfully similar to Arceus, although the protrusions are odd.
Arceus to be honest.
Hey, hang on a sec... something is really ridiculous here...
