News about news: Pokemon announcement coming January 8th

They have announced their plan to make an announcement

Do you like knowing things? How about knowing that you will know things? Do you like that too? If so, you’re in luck! You will soon know something that you don’t know now, and this time, it’s about Pokemon!

This Tuesday, January 8th, Nintendo will tell us about a new development in their popular series of products about trouser demons pocket monsters. It could be related to the card game, the anime TV series, the anime movie series, the collectible figurine game, the main series on handheld consoles, the spin off series on home systems, or something totally new! My bet is it’ll be something for the Wii U, as the console’s honeymoon period is starting to wind down, and Nintendo may feel it needs something to get people talking again. We’ll see on Tuesday if I’m right. 

One thing I can tell you for sure is that Nintendo will NOT announce that Teenage Pokemon is now an official product of Nintendo, and it will NOT be getting a huge, multi-million dollar budget. Bummer.
