I wonder if they'll just pretend it never existed.

Nintendo doesn't ever really throw Pokemon in with it's big lineups. It's got such a huge following in Japan (what with a whole show devoted to it on TV) that announcements usually come out on a separate channel than all the other stuff.

Wow, I totally forgot about  that. It'll be out before E3 next year, too. Curious. That would have been a major DS game to show, of which they were lacking.

Now that you mention it, your right. I was expecting them to at least mention it when they were talking about handhelds.

If they spent enough time developing it (I have no idea how far they've gone with the idea) then they'll probably shove it into a game in the future to justify the money they've spent.

Solid theory.

Nintendo doesn't do TGS.

I don't really care about Pokemon anymore. I thought HeartGold and SoulSilver was enough for fans. Obviously not. = - \

Really? I know they used to.

The Vitality Sensor and the 3DS announced together would just confuse people who vaguely read about todays events. They chose their battle wisely.

I don't think they ever have (not for a long time, at least), but they usually hold their own press event at arround the same time, so from an outsiders perspective it usually seems like they're there.
