The premise of The Thieves and the 1,000 Pokémon is to befriend and collect Pokémon through StreetPass. You can use Pokémon to take on the band of thieves and their Pokémon by clashing in stampede-style battles to retrieve stolen treasure.

If you don't have enough Pokémon, you'll end up losing against the thieves, so you'll actually need to have quite a lot of Pokémon to get far in the game. The villains are characters who'll be appearing in the upcoming film, Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction.

The trailer also mentions that there's a special something in store for those who play the game and take it to the movie theaters when the new Pokémon movie premieres. There will also be something special for those with Pokémon X and Y.

From the announcement:

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have postponed the launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter - two software applications that were originally scheduled to launch for Nintendo 3DS on Dec. 27 - due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. Due to the high traffic, players are having trouble setting up Nintendo Network IDs and downloading content in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. We truly regret the inconvenience, and wish to reassure everyone that providing a solution is our top priority. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience.

Here is a brief glimpse of the new Pikachu game in development courtesy of NHK. This episode of The Professional will be broadcasted in Japan on October 28.

In the clip, you can see Ishihara saying that filming isn't allowed—and then, the announcer says, "This is the first time cameras have gotten in." You can see the Pokémon Company staffers work on its "super secret game," which stars Pikachu and looks to be a 3DS title.


Now continue to watch Pikachu maniacally laugh.
