Pokemon coming to save the Wii U?

1 min read

As we know, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will be coming to the 3DS later this year, but a new video has people wondering if there aren’t signs of a Pokemon Wii U on the horizon. If so, could we finally see a title capable of saving the ailing console?

An HD image at the end of a Pokemon retrospective video certainly hints at something. Here is the video, the image is visible right at the end (2:12):

For those who can’t or won’t watch the video, it shows Pikachu traversing through a landscape of screens and devices, passing the Pokemon starters from each generation. At the end, he looks forward to two screens, one for Pokemon X and one for Pokemon Y. There is a brief pause, followed by an HD image of Lucario and Blaziken facing off.

And here is the image:

Considering the HD-ness, it is unclear if this is a CGI movie in the making, or if we can expect a Wii U game. Looking closely, we can see a barrier, implying that this is some kind of battle. However, the environment almost looks like it could be very high definition augmented reality. It is still too soon to tell what exactly we’re looking at, but it certainly has gotten the Pokemon community into a tizzy.

Maybe this is what it will take to ship units of the Wii U. I’m sure anyone who doesn’t have a 3DS when Pokemon X and Y releases will rush out to get one just to play. That is the nature of Pokemon fans. As the first Pokemon game on the 3DS, it will certainly help to boost sales. I wonder if the same wouldn’t be true of a Wii U version.

        He’ll face some stiff competition from Darryn, who said on Friday it’s his mission to be the best ball handler in the world.

    The Pokemon should be more realistic in terms of texture and material. Also it would clearly need a Pokemon stadium aspect with Pokemon x and y. But it should be a cross between that game cube game and the game boy games. Just saying. That and online play with friends and general online play. If I may I’d say that x and y have to be the most ambitious games yet and not just because of the 3d graphics and display. But their are new ways to interact and bond with Pokemon, their are mega evaluations, all Pokemon (which is over 600 models) and other such things. The Wii u game would have to step up even more.

    It would definitely save the console and sell more than nintendo can probably imagine.
    All Pokemon fans are waiting for a next gen version to come take their breath away.

    I actually cant even comprehend why it hasnt been done yet, how many times can you make a handheld version of the same game when all the fans want is a massive console version with online battles (pokemon with mmo elements perhaps?) It just seems stupid that they have let their rep slip so low with the wii u when this is all they have to do to save themselves and the console. It annoys me to even try and comprehend the thought behind it.

    I am not a pokemon fan, i went a different path growing up, but I know its popular enough with more than enough fans to make it an astounding success. And I might even give it a try if they did it this.

    I think this could be the game that brings back the Wii U if true. Hopefully it’s not just a Pokemon Battle Revolution. Nintendo please make a Pokemon RPG for the Wii U. Sales would go through the roof.
