‘Shocking’ Pokemon Information to Air on ‘Oha Suta’ Tomorrow!

The teaser description for the May 31st episode of Japanese variety show Oha Suta has just been released. Thanks goes to Bangiras for the translation!

Earth shaking! We’ve obtained shocking news about Pokemon! Witness the moment a new history of Pokemon is born!

The news could likely reveal the Pokemon Switch games and if so should confirm some of the rumors that have been floating around, especially as there’s strong evidence for the titles of the games. That the description says a new “history” of Pokemon will be born also seems to hint that the rumors of revisiting Kanto could be true.

Oha Suta is mainly known for revealing news related to the Pokemon movies, so it’s unlikely the show will be the first to break news of the Pokemon Switch games (if that’s what they’re covering). The Pokemon Company itself will want to do that. Assuming the news is for the Switch games, we can expect an announcement to come from Pokemon either in the morning (within the next 7 hours) or tomorrow morning.

The Oha Suta episode will air Thursday in Japan at 7 AM, which is around 3 PM on Wednesday in California time.

    No Pls No. We don't want Gen 1 again. Everything I know about Gen 1 is enough to prove that Gen 1 sucks

    I'm floored that people here are still angry about the rumors floating around. IF! IF they are true, do you really think it will be a straight Gen1 rehash? Evidence from current switch releases says otherwise. It's not a remaster or a port, so it's bound to do at least a few things differently, beyond a simple graphical overhaul. And that's a good thing, no matter which region we are in. The whining is just a meme at this point...

    I bought a Switch to play a new generation of Pokemon games. If we revisit the old region but with a ton of brand new pokemon, moves, legendaries, etc then I'll be much happier, but that seems less and less likely to be what's coming in late 2018 :(

    TBH, I hate Gen 1 based on the storyline based on what I've played way back Fire Red: too harsh, too violent, having some sort of "bullying" because of Blue, which I hate. Gen 1 also introduces gambling via Game Corner which is not good for younger players.

    If the Kanto thing was revealed: I was really hope for
    1. Expanded Pokedex
    2. No Pokedex-related story like getting a VS Seeker requires X Pokemon.
    3. Day/Night cycle so that wild Pokémon varies everytime.
    4. An evil team focuses on a Legendary Pokemon.
    5. Retains the best features of Pokémon throughout the years.
    Where do we get the livestream of that TV show?

    I bought a Switch for new Pokemon as well.. So far, the games on it haven't been my favorite, so I'm hopeful Pokemon will deliver. It would be sad to see them give into their already enormous wallet. This would be Solo bad imho.

    Speak for yourself.
    I’m happy for a gen 1 game.
    I hate people think their opinion is what the general public want.
    Gen 1 again?
    Last time Gen 1 came out was in 2002-2003.
    That’s a solid 15-16 years. It’s been quite along time for you to be saying “gen 1 again.”

    What’s funny is everything you say that you hate about Gen 1 are the exact reasons a lot people love Gen 1.
    Yes it’s harsher/more violent than current Pokémon games. But a lot of people like that because it’s more mature, more adult. And the “bullying?” There’s a reason so many people think blue/silver(since he kinda is the same way) are the best rivals.

    I personally would love if they went back to that sort of stuff so the games felt more mature and I didn’t feel like I was playing a little kids game the entire time.

    Minor thing, but the last time Gen 1 came out was actually 2016, with the 3DS VC release of Red and Blue.

    Come on. Sinnoh is the only region that hasn’t gotten a second game, other than X&Y, which is probably too recent for them to make another release. Kanto is over used because it was the first region. I want a region different from Kanto at the very least.

    If it’s in Kanto, I most likely won’t be buying it.

    I think it's about time we get a rival who's actually, you know, a rival. I'm getting tired of the rival just being a friend who is basically your personal cheerleader. Also, Blue didn't really bully your character, he was just a cocky little shit. Silver was actually abusive, however. But that was a really interesting concept

    Additionally, the raw realism of Team Rocket being a criminal organization is far more entertaining than the ridiculous, cartoonist rule the world plots of the past 5 generations' villainous organizations, imo. Some of the concepts from gen 1 and 2 would actually seem original and refreshing after 5 generations of the same thing regarding rivals and villains (although SM at least mixed things up by having Team Skull be a front for the real villian. Same outcome, however).

    Just my opinion, though.

    I'm totally fine with having gen 1 again, but this is just wrong.

    Technically, yes, the gen 1 games were last released in 2002-2003.

    However, the mascot of pokemon that is constantly pushed as the symbol of the franchise is a gen 1 pokemon. A lot of the pokemon that get the most representation are things like Snorlax and Charizard, that are also gen 1. The games constantly reference Gen 1, like how SM have new special forms for a bunch of Gen 1 pokemon, and the games end with characters explicitly going to Kanto.

    Kanto is a huge part of gen 1, and the last video games that explicitly visited that area (excluding the straight ports of red and blue to VC, which I don't count for anything really) were actually Heartgold and Soulsilver in 2009.

    Yes but that was just a re release of the original games ported to the 3DS. The Kanto based Switch game if true would have updated stuff just like FR/LG had.

    I don't hate Gen 1 so much as I feel it gets a disproportionate amount of attention. Sure, it's how everything started, but still. Let's go through how much influence Gen 1 has had on each subsequent gen...

    Gen II: Continuation of Gen I with players getting to return to Kanto. Baby pokémon added for Gen I pokémon.
    Gen III: Started off separate, but then brought Kanto back with FRLG. Pikachu line got an exclusive move.
    Gen IV: Released 9 new evos for Gen I pokémon, including 2 new Eevee evos. Gen II got 5, Gen III got 4. Kanto is once again revisited in HGSS, however, to be fair, it's because it's a Gen 2 remake.
    Gen V: No clear Gen I favoritism as any nostalgia call backs (like World Chamionship) also call back to other gens.
    Gen VI: 15 Mega evos added for Gen I pokémon, 6 Gen I, 20 Gen III, IV Gen 4, 1 Gen V, 1 Gen VI. Gen III may have gotten the most Megas, however that's partially due to ORAS being Gen III remakes. Gen I has the second highest representation, which is substantial. A new Eevee evo was introduced AND the Kanto Starters are secondary starters in Kalos.
    Gen VII: Alolan formes are exclusively given to Gen I pokémon. 6 of the 17 pokémon exclusive Z-Crystals are for Gen I pokémon (or in the case of Alolan Raichu, the Alolan forme of a Gen I pokémon). No other pokémon outside of Gen I or Gen VII pokémon get exclusive Z- Crystals. This, coupled with mega stones, mean that Gen I has the most pokémon that can take advantage of two of the most recent new gameplay mechanics in terms of exclusivity. There's no other reasoning for this outside of Gen I favoritism.

    So, like I originally stated, Gen I gets A LOT of love already so it is not surprising people feel like returning to Kanto "again" seems to soon. Even if we haven't gone to the region itself, Gen I has been revisited pretty thoroughly every generation outside of Gen V.

    Those were re-releases of the originals. They were not new games. There was no new story/characters/pokemon. Meaning if you already played them there was no need to buy them.
    The 3DS VC doesn’t count.

    I'd argue that Gen V was a spiritual remake of Gen I, at least where the Pokemon are concerned. There are a ton of parallels.
