As of now, Emile has not hinted at any LPs, but he did say to his viewers "A lot of you guys wanted me to do Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness at the same time as Pokémon Platinum. This might be a hint that Chuggaaconroy is going to do a Pokémon Platinum LP in the future. He has also said on a few occasions in Pokémon Colosseum that he plans to LP the Pokémon series in order. Also on May 3rd, 2014, he said:
"Due to the amount of comments about, I want to state that Pikmin 3 is not something I'm currently working on. I would like to Let's Play it someday, but I don't have a reliable way to record the GamePad right now and the second screen is very important to the game. Some Wii U games allow the Gamepad to be displayed in the corner of the TV, but Pikmin 3 isn't one of them.
I know I can rig a camera onto the controller or something, but I don't want to have lower-quality videos just for the sake of Let's Playing it sooner. Plus I know of multiple groups working on ways to record it. They'll have something figured out in a matter of time and I think it makes sense to wait for it rather than rush it.
When playing, I personally use the menus and features of the GamePad a lot in my strategies and I just think it'd be really awkward to be constantly talking about something the viewer wouldn't be able to see. So, it's not happening now, but it might someday! I'd certainly like to finish the series! Until then, I'm working on plenty of other things I hope you'll enjoy!"
So most likely, he is going to do a Pikmin 3 Let's Play in the future.
He has also responded to a Youtube comment suggesting Epic Mickey, stating that he might be considering it.
