Koa Games is a Japan-based mobile phone game company, so they may only release games in Japan, but since GameFreak and Nintendo are worldwide, that could possibly change.

    Hype? I dunno, they seem too into this mobile game idea. Nintendo will shut them down on using Pokemon though.

      Why’s that? If Nintendo wants mobile Pokemon games, wouldn’t this be a good step?
