The latest Pokemon Smash episode has just ended, and besides the announcement of a Mewtwo event and its details that will be revealed next week, it was rather rubish. Except for the preview of next week’s episode! The preview showed Junichi Masuda coming into the studio, holding up a mystery sign. Now we already knew that he was going to appear next week to announce something massive to the , so no surprise there. :p For those who’ve stayed with the fandom through Pokemon Smash you know he’s been on the program before to announce the up-coming games. So next week could very well be the moment we’ve all been waiting for–the third game announcement. And to even add to the excitement of the possible announcement the official Pokemon Smash site says that the “latest game info” will be revealed, but without referencing the Masuda appearance directly.
All of this being said it could well be an announcement of a “new Pokemon”. (‘Cause remember, Keldeo, Meloetta and Genesect haven’t officially been revealed yet) Regardless of what is to come we have next week’s Pokemon Smash episode, Tuesday’s 3DS Nintendo conference, and of course there’s the CoroCoro leak that will come within the next few days. So, news of *something* will hit the internet this coming week. So get excited fandom!
What do you guys think the announcement will be? A “new Pokemon” or the latest instalment of the Unova region? Or possibly even a RSE remake? Heck it could even be an announcement of a spin off game. Only time will tell. But in the mean time, discuss in the comments!

P.S. If the announcement is the next Gen V game, it’ll probably be featured in this month’s CoroCoro leak.
