Game Director {{bp|Junichi Masuda}} is scheduled to appear on the next episode of {{bp|Pokémon Smash!}} to make an announcement. Due to the nature of some of his past announcements, fans have speculated the announcement to be of a new game, among many others. This episode of ''Pokémon Smash!'' airs the same date as the first anniversary of {{game|Black and White|s}} - Sept. 18.
   
It is possible that this announcement may be a new game, as {{bp|The Pokémon Company}} CEO {{bp|Tsunekazu Ishihara}} did state earlier this year that there are more surprises coming this year, and Nintendo are having a 3DS-related press conference on the 13th.

However, it is also possible that this might be the official reveal of the {{bp|Mythical Pokémon}} {{bp|Keldeo}}; as this appearance is on the first anniversary of {{bp|Pokémon Black and White Versions}}' release, which had the {{bp|Liberty Pass}} which allowed a player to capture {{bp|Victini}} available from launch.
