The inevitable 3DS Pokémon game may be just around the corner.
There are at least three mentions of a new Pokémon game floating around, including one Nintendo's latest press release regarding sales figures, specifically linked with the 3DS.
Siliconera received a New Year's card from The Pokémon Company, which makes mention of "even more amazing games" in the coming year than 2011, which brought four Japan-only releases as well as the western launch of Pokémon Black & White.
Meanwhile, GoNintendo has an image of a Pokémon tease splash from the pages of CoroCoro, which asks "What mystery is hidden in Kyurem?” and promises “Kyurem’s unseen power will be revealed". Kyurem, according to Bulbapedia, is the third member of the legendary Pokémon trio featured in - and on the covers of - Pokémon Black & White.
Kurem is grey. The other two are black and white. You see what we're saying here. We won't be terribly shocked by a Pokémon Gray announce for 3DS in 2012.
