Pokémon “special announcement” coming Monday

Saturday, 14th September 2013 19:40 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The Pokémon Company is teasing a “special announcement” for Monday, September 16 at 8am PDT/11am EDT. The announcement of an announcement was posted to Twitter, and picked up by Siliconera. At least this gives you something to look forward to on Monday as you get up early, make yourself presentable, and have to deal with traffic on your way to the start of another week of work. We’ve no idea what the “surprise” could be – but there’s a lot of new stuff going in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y so there’s no telling, really. We’ll be sure to let you know what it is once we hear something ourselves.

    It’s most likely to do with the video that was accidently uploaded last week, labeled as the trailer for the upcoming movie, but actually a music video using clips from the anime, auto-tuned Ash voice, and a funky beat..
    it’s all to promote a website called, which currently redirects to the official Pokémon website.

    @1 That doesn’t sound very exciting. :(

    Probably a social network / leaderboard / tournament coverage website?

    The X/Y universe is already huge, all the functionality and new aspects included in the game look great.. If they top it off with a website to bring the competitive side to the masses, then there’s nothing stopping Nintendo for a while.

    (I wish I was younger and had more free time… responsibilities be damned)
