'Big' Pokemon news to be revealed on tomorrow

Pokemon announcement goes global

The anticipation for this week's Pokemon announcement has ramped up after the Pokemon Company tweeted that 'big news' is incoming on 8 January.

While it had already been revealed that Game Freak would be making an announcement in Japan tomorrow, now it seems that the news will affect Pokemon fans all over the world after The Pokemon Company told fans to check on 8 January.

However, you may hear about it first via a special Pokemon Direct which is scheduled for 11am tomorrow morning.

We don't know what time this big news will break but it is exciting. What do you think it will be? Marti Bennett's Pokemon wish list includes Generation VI, Pokemon Snap remake and a Stadium-style battle game for Wii U.

    Announcement will be 11am UK time, and can be watched live right here.

    Seeing as its Iwata announcing it you can assume it won't be something rubbish.

    I bet it will be a pokemon distribution...
    but hopefully it's generation VI

    threw playing Black 2, i have found several areas with unanswered questions. my biggest fear is that there will be a pokemon gray version. I don't think Hoenn will make a return until gen VI debuts on the 3DS. Gen VI is what i am hoping for! Fingers Crossed! :D

    I'm not speculating what it may or may not be. While it would be nice for Generation VI to be revealed, I also kind of want to see a third Gen V game.
