Rumour – Pokémon Gray announcement soon

Thursday, 20 October 2011 03:20 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A legitimate-looking domain registration has re-opened speculation of a new version of Pokémon Black & White – Pokémon Gray.

Pokemon Buzz reports pokemongray.com has been registered by Melbourne IT DBS – the company Nintendo used to secure the official Pokémon Black & White website’s domain.

“Pokémon Gray” is the title fans have hypothesised for an expected re-release of the Black & White generation games, in the same way that Yellow usurped Red and Blue; Crystal replaced Silver and Gold; and Emerald followed Ruby and Sapphire.

Developer Gamefreak had previously said it had no plans for a “grey” edition.

Food for thought: Nintendo has planned a 3DS conference event for Friday. There is no core Pokémon game for 3DS yet.
