Pokemon MMO? Not going to happen

Whattheyplay.com is reporting the following news:

In our interview with Pokémon series director Junichi Masuda (left, in the photo below) today, he responded to questions from fans and What They Play Twitter followers regarding the future of the franchise, and the secrets of its repeated (and repetitive) success. One of the most asked questions from our readers concerned rumors of a fully online Pokémon game. Of this, Masuda said, “At this point, we’re not thinking of going in that direction. Trading is a core concept of Pokémon. So when you’re trading, you meet with a friend and decide which one you want and which one they want. I would like to emphasize real-world communication. You don’t see each other online.”
