The announcement about PokkÃ¨n Tournament coming to the Wii U was certainly welcome to hear last week, but it's beginning to sound as if it won't be the main PokÃ¨mon thing happening next year if The PokÃ¨mon Company has anything to say about it.
Nintendo World Report spoke with a representative from the company last week at the 2015 PokÃ¨mon World Championships in Boston, and they asked whether PokkÃ¨n Tournament would be the main plan for the series' 20th anniversary in the early part of 2016. The response? "No."
The PokÃ©mon Company International“s Director of Consumer Marketing J.C. Smith then admits that while he may be "splitting hairs" on the subject, there are a number of things planned for 2016 that they can't discuss at the moment.
So what could be bigger than PokkÃ¨n Tournament? Could it another mainline game or two be releasing next year, or is there a substantial spin-off in the works? Perhaps even some kind of new PokÃ¨mon convention? We'll just have to wait and see.
For now, it's safe to expect that we can see more than just PokkÃ¨n Tournament when it comes to new game releases.
