Hours later, another trailer released in Japan - this time without an English version popping up later.
The trailer certainly seems to show the game taking a few more pages out of Go's playbook. Apparently, the encounters with the three Legendary Birds at least also involve battling them, and - akin to one of Go's most frustrating elements - some wild Pokémon are prone to running away. The trailer also briefly shows (for a split second) what might be a new Mini-Game involving Pikachu - and (also for a split second) it also shows a cameo by Jessie, James and Meowth - so one may assume that their brief cameos from Yellow are to be integrated into this game.
On other news, the 21st Pokémon Movie, Everyone's Story, was finally released in Japan yesterday - and as per usual, its ending showed a brief teaser for next year's movie, revealing its title as "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution". Because the last time someone tried to stick 'evolution' on a classical anime it ended so well. But then, I guess they wanted to throw Weird Movie AU Ash on a collision course with the superclone too. I guess we'll know more about what on Earth they're planning to mutilate it with later this year?
(At least there are no random Genesects this time.)
