We’ve salivated, speculated and pondered the mysterious image that emerged from the Pokémon Game Show over the weekend, with many being led to believe it signalled the direction for an unannounced Wii U title.

Yet The Pokémon Company have now dismissed it as being “merely conceptual,” though if it provides any indication to what they’re currently experimenting with there’s still plenty to be excited about.

“There is nothing to announce at this time. These are merely conceptual images,” a spokesperson explained to Kotaku.

Pokkén Fighters and Pokkén Tournament trademarks filed by the company are still shrouded in secrecy though, but we’ll surely learn what they are for in future.
