But we would most certainly try. And then I remembered. We had forgotten about Pokémon. The handheld behemoth of an adventure series that can take easily 20 hours to finish properly for a review.

Iwata remembers Pokemon sells units

If there's one thing fans have been clambering for, it's Pokemon on the Wii U. Bring us a Pokemon MMO through the Wii U and you might just cause a global economic crisis as everyone spends all their money in game and completely stops working. Could Nintendo be considering this?

This handmade Pokémon from Man at Arms is super effective
