While at the 2015 Pokémon World Championships last weekend, Nintendo World Report asked The Pokémon Company’s J.C. Smith if Pokkén Tournament is intended to be the main title in the series to celebrate the 20th anniversary in early 2016.
Smith merely replied to this by saying no, but after being pressed further about the matter, added the following:
“I’m splitting hairs. No, there’s lots of stuff planned for the 2016 year but nothing I can talk about now.”
When asked for a hint of what lies ahead for the series, Smith pointed to the keyword “Flowers”.
Whatever The Pokémon Company is planning for the 20th anniversary of the series, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be big…
