Rumor: Pokemon XD Heading to 3DS?

Some blurry photos have been making their rounds today of what looks like a possible port of Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness to the Nintendo 3DS. The image shows Michael from Pokemon XD. The use of the exact same artwork from the Gamecube version would imply that this is a port rather than a whole new entry.


It should be noted that the 3DS image used in the picture is of the E3 model, with a blue analog slider. If this is a glimpse of a magazine scan, it could be an simple  mistake. But if it’s a picture from official promotional material from Nintendo, it seems like this likely could be fake.


There’s a rumor of a Pokemon announcement coming next month, so this could very well be it. We’ll have to see when May rolls around.

  1. The games been proven fake at pokejungle, something about the 3DS in the image being incorrect. Apparently, the rumored game is a Mystery Dungeon 3DS with Black/White pokemon characters, images at pokejungle’s front page. I believe the images also look weird, but whatever happens right..

    From what I can tell, there’s only the XD character in the leaked shots. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if it were true if it was colosseum and XD bundled. I don’t know anything about location in Colloseum and XD though. I thought they took place in same place as Colosseum.

    Read the post before you comment please lol

  3. Yeah I believe this is fake, the slide pad on the 3DS is blue, which was the case on the prototype version. I could be wrong and the magazine editor could have used the wrong 3DS when they ‘shoped it.

  4. Well I don’t know if it will be this, but supposedly CoroCoro magazine is going to announce a new pokemon game in it’s next issue, which is next month, I think like the 21st or sometime around there.
