News regarding change/modification for Pikachu on the way

Update 2: The description does appear to mention “new” game after all, but that could still be a reference to X/Y. Make of this what you will. It doesn’t make much sense for us to speculate any further!

Update: A second translation of NHK’s synopsis gives greater credence to something such as Mega Pikachu as opposed to an entirely new game:

“He was working on a game this summer, which would change/modify Pikachu… but since there are many people who have loved Pikachu for many years, he was/is worried that it’s popularity could drop all it once if not done right. What was his decision at that time?”

Guess we’ll see what this is about on the 28th…

Original: Pokemon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara will be making an appearance on a Japanese television program on October 28th. A synopsis provided on NHK’s website seems to reveal the existence of an unprecedented, unannounced Pokemon title – one with a heavy Pikachu focus.

The description mentions that the Pokemon project started development this summer. Supposedly, it will change Pikachu, and Ishihara has some concerns as to how this will affect the creature’s popularity.

Details will be shared during the interview later this month.

Apparently, there’s some speculation that the change could be Mega Pikachu. Some fans also wonder if the game will be compatible with Pokemon X/Y. If so, Pikachu’s change could be brought over.

    • NintendoMan

      What if the new Pikachu is even cuter?

      • Jack Saat

        I think you can’t get something more cute the world will not be able to handle it and try kill it with fire :(

  • NintendoMan

    I need a Mega Pikachu! What will it look like?

    • The True Gamer

      It could be just a really big pikachu. That would be interesting

        • Wesley Messer

          bad as in what?

  • Carlos

    Am I the only one who doesn’t care for Pikachu? He’s overrated, and probably wouldn’t be popular if it wasn’t for the show.

      wrong

      • Carlos

        What’s wrong with what I said?

    • Chris Hagberg

      He’s popular because he’s the Game Mascot.

      • Carlos

        I don’t like that they chose him as the mascot. I think another Pokemon would have been better, like Squirtle.

        • johnk

          lllll

        • http://instagram.com/dj_7powers/ Daniel Jeanbaptiste

          nope it would be either claifairy or pikachu

        • Chris Hagberg

          Well, that’s a matter of opinion, which is perfectly fine, so I won’t argue with you. But for me, I think Pikachu is great as the mascot, although I will say he may be just a little overused.

    • LeeHatake93

      He’s meh. Personally, I would have made someone like Charizard or Mewtwo the mascot

  • Luffink

    While people ask for a Mega Pikachu, Raichu is crying in a corner

  • jonathanananananana BATMAN!!!

    Will affect the creature’s popularity? heh, Grand Theft Pikachu CONFIRMED!

  • Gus Duenes

    its probably a male or female version of pikachu im really hoping riachu gets a mega evolution, its my favorite pokemon

  • Rogue Fang

    Pokemon Yellow remake?

  • LeeHatake93

    Well, Pikachu says its name in X/Y, something it hasn’t done in a mainstream game since Yellow. I doubt that is related to this, but it’s something that points at the character.
