According to a recent interview with The Pokémon Company International’s Director of Consumer Marketing J.C. Smith at the 2015 Pokémon World Championships in Boston, Massachusetts just this past weekend, the future of Pokémon may be a little more bizarre than we thought.
When asked in the interview to provide a cryptic word that would make sense in hindsight, Smith simply said “Flowers.”
In Pokemon X and Y, Floette is a plot-important Pokémon who carries its trademark flower in the game. There’s also its Eternal Flower Floette, which has not has been officially released yet. Flowers could also refer to an upcoming Pokémon title in 2016.
