Someone in the thread apparently stated that the Kingdom Green logo translates to Kingdom Blue... so they messed up their fake Japanese yet again.
Or did they?

They probably did that on purpose given Blue replaced Green in the non-Japanese releases.

Then there are also even the two (or more?) earlier Gen 8 threads..!!

As far as the actual topic at hand, there have been no posts so far today on the pokemon_cojp twitter, yesterday there was one which was introducing the Pokemon Shirts! :unsure::)
It is fun to watch and wait at this point! Hopefully there will be something!

Okay, so, fake leaks that had weird amounts of effort put into them despite missing easy details:
  • The email screencaps that tried to create a conversation between two employees, including a confidentiality signature, but didn't check the calendar
  • These logos that went to the trouble of designing all that, but didn't bother to make sure they were getting the Japanese word for green and not blue
Are there any others like this? This is hilarious.

Yeah, but that didn't change the name of the original game. And even if this was what they were doing, why make a green logo for a game called Kingdom Blue when Kingdom Red has a red logo?

I don't get this logic... they're not even competing products.
TPCI is involved in the production of Detective Pikachu and they don't wanna let gen 8 overshadow it, especially since its a thing in 2 months time (Not counting the last few days of February) and this can very well be the last trailer, since the trailers have been scarce anyways (This is only the third one i believe), so they wanna market the heck out of it.

Emily Rogers also predicted Stars and a Mother 3 3DS port though.

It could have been a 50/50 shot in a dark that they would be real.

How would Gen 8 overshadow it, though? They're two different mediums, it's not like people are going to run out to the theater in May to watch Gen 8. Are people going to be so excited for Gen 8 that they're going to forget about the live action film coming out first? In that case, might as well not announce Gen 8 until after Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution comes out, or no one's going to watch pokemon movies this year.

Love letter :3

Ladies and gentlemen, it has been an honor to share this moment with you.

This is the first time I have followed the announcement of a new generation from the beginning, and this is even more special because it is in a hybrid console (just imagine the possibilities of this new game).
And if all goes well, it will be the first time I play in the launch <3

Have a great night* and a great week! :bulbaWave:

1500 pages :bulbaLove:

* or day, because we have users of several time zones ^^
