The Japanese Twitter doesn't mention this, so there is probably no connection to XY. This is probably the announcement of the GottaCatchEmAll.com website, which I suspect will be used to broadcast a western version of the upcoming Get TV show.

Is this something that will be revealed in a live video again, or just something that will be posted on the official website?

Or something else?

I'm going with,

A) Gottacatchemall.com

B) A dub trailer of Pokémon The Series: XY for the preview on October 19th.
 
I gotta focus. I'm shifting into pokemon mode.

Maybe after years of not using "Gotta Catch 'em All" The big announcement is that "Oh, hey, we're bringing this back."

Indeed, but the prospect of promoting the necessity to catch around 800 Pokemon both excites and scares me :p

It's most likely that website that everyone seems to be talking about, the GottaCatchEmAll.com website that appears to use the slogan of the franchise that we haven't heard since Gen 2.

Wow, 7AM my time, I can watch it as soon as I arrive at school. :'D I'm not fond of dubs at all, but it would still be neat to know that a Western release of Origin is upon us.

I'm assuming the "surprise" is the GottacatchEmAll.com website that was leaked by accident, then that's not really a surprise to me or anyone who frequents Pokebeach or other fansites. Either that the announcement of the Pokemon: The Origin dub.

A specific website to broadcast the Western version of GottaCatchEmAll.com seems off to me; they already have Pokemon TV for that, and if they were to make such a show, I would expect it would be used. However, I think you are right in the assumption that whatever it is will not be applicable to Japanese audiences since they haven't said anything about it.

Still, I have no idea what GottaCatchEmAll.com would be.

Why should they do it on weekdays?

No one is gonna watch it due to school/work, you know...

Also, it must be very important...

Hey, at least I don't have school tomorrow! I'm glad that there's gonna be a special announcement. Probably Gotta Catch 'em All site.

So the announcement should happen in around 10 minutes. Let's see what it's going to be about.
