And guess what? It's probably going to be Japan-only, as it's related to the launch of a bullet train. Oh well, that's what Pokémon Online is for. This is actually big, BIG news for Pikachu and Raichu, since their speed leaves to be desired. Especially Pikachu, who WILL die to anything faster and has one of the highest attack scores in the game. The hilarious thing is that Pikachu has so many event moves, and time after time they pick the most worthless ones... I guess they were bound to run out of crappy moves at some point.
By the way, this isn't Masuda's big announcement... that will be taken care of later today.
