But the Weedle tweet was posted on 2/14~15 (depending on your time zone). And the LGPE one on 5/19 in Japan (LGPE was announced on 5/30 in Japan).
(on* 2/14...in* Japan) sigh I keep commiting minor english errors (Sorry, esl here).


About this account, i’m pretty sure they don’t know anything

Also notice how all the games he mentioned are just generic titles.
I'm not sure about yet, but those are good points. But they also hit the Fire Emblem presentation time.

Maybe, it's hard to say now. Maybe they have excluded the other guesses, as well (like the 10 and 15min ones). It's also hard to give any kind of credibility to them now. I think I'm going to do the same thing as some people in the Era and wait to see if they will actually reveal anything else.

I know it was a joke but it could be something the writers just threw in as a fun little hint for the fans.
They would have had to have gotten that kind of information from GameFreak and considering how the final starter evos leaked, I doubt GameFreak is handing spoilers over that far in advance.

Remember that Masuda teased Let's Go through his Pokemon Go tweet before, so we shouldn't rule out the Pokemon Go tweet just yet.
If you mean the tweet that said 5:29 on it, we were just discussing how that could have been coincidence- especially considering that news didn't actually drop on 5/29, it dropped on 5/30.

There is one aspect i can think of is, that it is somewhat still accurate as far as, "this is the last day that there will not be any news"!! :) :)

If he has posted numbers purposefully before, and currently, it seems to be for fun, an idea that he has personally; maybe that is the most potential hinting that Game Freak/Nintendo would want to be happening, so even to keep the date ambiguous would be considered polite and meeting their policy for soft-announcing!

So it is a good situation all around.

If we are actually going to get an announcement this month then there is no doubt that they will have. started working on the new anime already or at the very least know something about the new games. Especially if the new series will dropping around the same time as the game is released.

-shrug- I mean, whether it is or isn't, confirmation bias will persist if we get news on the 26th or 27th either way so... I'm not paying the numbers any mind, but I'm not interested in arguing with anyone who thinks they mean anything either. We're all just expecting the same date for different reasons.

But considering Masuda's position in the company, I think he's one of the people who decides how much hinting is too much hinting. XD And "hinting" a date via one of several random sets of numbers on a screen isn't exactly a big reveal. He's dropped way more direct hints than that.

Waaaay more direct-
