Pokemon Z, the supposed sequel video game to Pokemon X and Y, has been rumoured for some time now. Fans got talking about it recently following a "flowers" hint that The Pokemon Company revealed at the insistence of a fan.

Director consumer marketing at The Pokemon Company JC Smith was asked by a fan to "throw a cryptic word" that would make him "scratch his head" and he gave him the "flowers" as a hint, reported VC Post.

Nintendo World Report interpreted this as Pokemon Eternal Flower Floette that could appear in Pokemon Z in 2016. This Pokemon was found by hackers when they mined the data in Pokemon X and Y.
