But you forgot that "a Pokemon game in the truest sense of the word" was not being discussed by RedMattis. He simply stated "Fortunately there might actually be an official pokémon game coming to the iPhone, or so the current rumor in the indie game development scene goes."
This is official. It's a Pokemon game. It doesn't go with the main series line, but it's still an official Pokemon game.
