If recent trademark filings are to be believed, tomorrow's Pokémon Direct announcement will reveal the seventh generation of Pokemon.
These logos recently popped up at the Office for Harmonization in the International Market, the trademarking body for the European Union:
Game Freak may have a surprise or two up their sleeves for their Pokémon Direct tomorrow, but it sure looks like Generation 7 is about to begin. Bring it on.
In the meantime, I'm going all the way back to the very beginning. In honor of Pokémon's 20th Anniversary, I'm kicking off a Nuzlocke Run in the original Pokémon Red. In case you're not familiar with Nuzlocke Rules, they are as follows:
- Any monster who faints is "dead" and must be released.
- You can only capture the first monster you encounter in each area.
- You're strongly encouraged to nickname everything.
I've never done a Nuzlocke Run before, so this seems like as good a time as any. Come hang out with me while I kick it off on the stream at 3pm PT/6pm ET! I've also got a spare code for the eShop version of Pokemon and the PC version of Disgaea, which I will give away on the Stream.Watch live video from usgamernet on www.twitch.tv
When I'm done, I'll be uploading the stream to our Youtube channel, as usual. In addition to our archived streams, you can find our One Hit Wonder archives, as well as lots of cool history videos. Check it out!
