Interview with Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales and marketing - Reggie Fils-Aime
Back in March 2005, IGN interviewed Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales and marketing. This is what he had to say about Pokemon XD when asked about it:

IGNcube: Finally, what is Pokemon XD?
Reggie: Pokemon XD is a brand new Pokemon game for GameCube. It's a true RPG Pokemon. It's isn't a sequel to Collosseum. It's a brand new build. A brand new game that really plays off the RPG aspects. So think of it this way. If you loved Ruby and Sapphire, you're going to love Pokemon XD for GameCube.

Pokemon XD at E3
Nintendo of America announced at the Game Developers Conference on Wednesday that Pokemon XD will be released in the US this year. Although a specific date is not yet available.

Pokemon XD is expected to be featured in this years E3, which will be held on May 17th - May 20th at Los Angeles.

Ah, sweet irony... The concept rocks! Pokemon fans have been demanding that even BEFORE Stadium 1 came out! But noooo Nintendo goes for stupid money grubbers like the stadium series...

And now that such a game really comes out, the best they could do is name it in such as way as if it's laughing at itself... pro >_>

Pokemon XD... makes me want to XD myself

XD

Hmmm Houndoom, T-Tar, Dragonite, Flygon...some of the other Pokemon that better be in this game. >_> They should make all 386 available, but I wonder if they did...

And if Nintendo would ONLY make the GC able to go online...could you imagine a Pokemon game like Halo? *Drool.* You could make teams and stuff and hold tournies and all sorts of stuff. But, that'll be the day...*Heavy sigh.* Nintendo does not know the heart's desire of most of us.

I'd be cool if they let you pick your starter out of every non-legendary first form pokemon.

It did take then 3 and a half generations before realizing a 3D RPG would be a good idea... Maybe another 3 and a half before they realize making it online would own =P

Yeah, and choosing your starter from a bigger list would be cool too.

And I just realized this: Dark Winds.....sounds like the after-effects of a big beefy dude eating five cans of REALLY bad beans. *Shudder.*

Thoughts: God Almighty that's a scary thought >_>...

Yeah, you're probably right. <_<

If my post gives anyone nightmares, I'm sorry. ^_^

It DOES sound kinda...corny though, don't it? Why not just Dark Winds or just Pokemon XD (which is not much better, but to put all this in the same title? >_>)?

And I just happen to read this while eating lunch at work... >_>

lol, nice though, maybe lugia ate some bad beans, became evil, and is trying to conquer the world by farting, and you, along with your smellproof (new trait :o) pokemon, will go up against it! :X

And Pokemon Winds sounds better than XD >_> maybe XD means eXtreme Diarrea or something lol

To the dragon lover poster above me:
In the overused way of many a fanfic, you starter will be Eevee in this game, or so I heard *sigh* If one more game comes out with that starter I think I will snap. It was okay in the terms of one game, but it is wearing thin for me..
I'd love to start out with something overlooked and underrated if only to show that I could.
Picture it: "The epic tale of a poor trainer that no one said would ever make it, claws their way up in the battling world with a Magikarp and a prayer !"

I've been wondering... The information given long ago, and the information given currently seem to contradict themselves...

What Reggie said was that if you love Ruby and Sapphire, then you'll love Pokemon XD. Such wouldn't be true unless it had at least all that RS had in terms of plot and the like; Gyms, Wild Pokemon, etc.

The information recently released shows signs of it being just like Colosseum (In which case, Reggie would have said "If you like Colosseum, then you'll love Pokemon XD"); ie. Shadow Pokemon, Snag Machine, etc.

So, which is it exactly? How do we know if it is the true RPG we've been waiting for? Could the fact that 1vs1 battles exist be a clue that Wild Pokemon are available (Due to Wild Pokemon battling solo)?

EDIT: Mana, XD stands for "Xtra Dimension".
