    Its about time they confirm it. I just hope Pidgeot and hopefully another bird or two make the final game. Guess we'll find out in 15 in a half hours.

    Hoping we see more of the Pokemon: Type Wild fighters in this game, like Loupony, because seeing it as a psuedo tribute to the fan game would be cool.

    A few minutes ago I've read in a gaming website a piece of news where Katsuhiro Harada said that this game was made with Pokémon's fans in mind but don't they realise that Pokémon's fans have favorite types? I'm a Grass type trainer and without any Pokémon of said type in the roost I have almost no interest in it (aside from the first fact that is that I'm not going to Japan!), namely after seeing Charizard and now Blaziken. C'mon, we'll probably and unfortunately end up seeing also Emboar and Infernape! Seeing Gardevoir but not Breloom just shows that this game only has fan favorites when there's lots of other Pokémon that deserve the spotlight!

    0.0 So many great Pokemon! I can hardly wait!

    But... how long will we have to wait? 2016? 2017? Imo, it will be a poor decision to release it on NX rather than on Wii U... :S

    Considering how poorly the Wii U is doing, it seems like a good idea to jump over to NX and use this and zeldea for bait tactics

    The WiiU is certainly not number one but it's a great conole for Nintendo fans ans it fits as a second console. Pokken should have been released on the WiiU because this year the console seems lacking and the NX rumours don't help the console. Also, since a few (at least) owners of the WiiU are already angry at Nintendo for the announcement of NX and continued speculation from gaming sites and analysts, the NX doesn't appear in their sights because they felt it's treason which it is to a point. After great sucess with the NDS and Wii, the 3DS began poorply only to have that Ambassator program and now the NX for WiiU seems even worse than that program. This is Nintendo screwing early adopters and adopters at all when the industry was almost always bashing the WiiU but therer were still players who bought it and Nintendo does this.
    I'll tell you, the NX will have a lot to prove to non-Nintendo gamers when it comes to third-party support and the Nintendo players that own a WiiU won't likely buy it, so delaying Zelda and Pokken to the NX is a waste.
