Well everyone here was growing tiresome for the predictable third version, but the sequels caught us off-guard, so this is a first time for Game Freak.

I understand that some people may enjoy the DLC/expansion/sequel models for a lot of games and it does work well for many games. In my personal case, I was disappointed with Nintendo for not making a brand new Pokemon color and instead choosing to separate one game into two games. Obviously it was a smart financial move though, as Nintendo's income will undoubtedly double (or quadruple in the case of 1 person buying Black 1-2 and White 1-2).
Well they have to make something to not only surpass sales of the first two gens but also make up for their fiancial losses from the 3DS.

The game industry must be worried in general because companies are dropping like flies recently. Pokemon seems to be playing it safe for now and using previously successful titles ("Soul" Silver, "Heart" Gold etc.) to maintain it's financial stability. I still have hope for a fresh new Pokemon game though, hopefully Nintendo is able to keep up the new Pokemon coming thanks to the income that Black and White 2 gave them.
Tell that to Star Fox, Banjo Kazooie, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro the Dragon. Also, Game Freak said that a Pokemon game with a different gameplay will be best used as a spin-off title rather than part of the main series.
