Genesis is used as an abstract thing like "origin" or "birth". It's most likely not an item or a mechanic. I'm on the TCG ship right now. It fits there related to mew or probably mewtwo considering it's an altered dna of mew.

Also I don't think it's too significant that we've already had a booster set called neo genesis. I'm pretty sure the tcg has used the same or similar words before, and if not, it's probably not the biggest deal for them if it wasn't recent.
I don't know about that, but it's irrelevant as the Japanese name was "Gold, Silver, to a New World..." We don't know what the English name of Altered Genesis is.

I don't even know what to make of alter genesis. Doesn't sound like game names, unless it's a spin off game (sounds like it could be along the line of XD gale of darkness but I'm just spitballing here) but maybe TheElderKing is right with it being a game gimmick. Do they trademark those?
Maybe it's a TCG set.

So the announcements for Pokemon week are:
TGC: Alter Genesis expansion pack (probably)
Anime: Twitch marathon
Movie: Trailer for Detective Pikachu
GO: Kanto event

WHAT ABOUT GEN8
Nothing. Groudon is still reigning unopposed.

I think XY and (to a lesser extent) spoiled us and we started expecting new gen reveals in Jan or Feb.

didn't James Turner say that he doesn't tease/hint anything, and that the hinting is usually done by Masuda/TPC?

That pic does remind me of armored mewtwo a lot though. Hm
 
I gotta focus. I'm shifting into pokemon mode.

I think there's something wrong with the shape of the pokeball too- it's not very crisp. Often happens when you apply stroke to something.
I just noticed that. It looks like someone made a almost perfect circle in Photoshop, made a pokeball out of it, and rotated it slightly so it's kind of wonky and artifacty around the edges.

Not to mention the previously mentioned É instead of é.
