In a recent discussion at NWR Marketing Director at Pokémon was approached regarding the series imminent 20th anniversary of which is celebrating next year in 2016. Below are some interesting teases inside an excerpt from that discussion:
NWR: 20 years. February 27th, 2016. What kind of plans you got, other than Pokkén Tournament?
JS: [Laughs] Wish I could tell you but I can’t!
NWR: Is Pokken Tournament is intended to be the main attraction for the series’ 20th anniversary in early 2016?
JS:I’m splitting hairs. No, there’s lots of stuff planned for the 2016 year but nothing I can talk about now
NWR: Are there big plans for it?
JS: There’s always big plans for it. And obviously, you’re seeing some big product stuff for it that’s been announced that’s exciting for the year and we always want to keep fans on their toes, but nothing I can reveal at this time.
NWR: Are we going to hear more soon? I know CoroCoro is talking about some stuff that’s going to get revealed soon. Maybe involving a green blob…
JS: [Laughs] CoroCoro – I love ‘em! Maybe…
NWR: Might hear something in three weeks?
JS: We’ll keep you on your toes!
NWR: Might see one of those minute-long trailers with the green blob and a new Zygarde form?
JS: [Laughs] You ask good questions. Nothing I can say.
NWR: So nothing on Pokémon XZ, YZ, X2, Y2? Because, it would be real nice if something came out next February!
JS: I appreciate your enthusiasm and you ask a lot of good questions but nothing I can reveal at this time.
