Both were also after Gamefreak made official announcements. This isn't the case so far and neither posted possible information before Gamefreak's announcements.
Gen V was announced in January on the official website with no announcement by Game Freak. Also, HG/SS were announced on the official website before being mentioned anywhere else.

Game Freak makes the game, TCP/Nintendo do the marketing so it's not really up to Game Freak as to whether they will make an announcement or when they will make it. That's up to TCP/Nintendo's marketing department.

I thnk the announcement may be Gen 6. The 3DS has been out almost for two years ans Nintendo is pressuring Game Freak to put games on it. If I recall they weren't very happy that Game Freak chose to put BW2 on the DS, and told Game Freak if they wanted to do so they had to do something different, which is why we have sequels, before, we were going to get paired third versions. The next games will be most likely on the 3DS and will most likely be Gen 6. Although Ruby/Sapphire remakes are a nice idea, I think they wont be the first main series games on the system.

It is not impossible for Gen 6 to happen in 2013.

I'm hoping it's gen VI as I'm ready for something new, along with my desire for remakes to be on the 3Ds, the paired version would make a nice test run.

There was an official announcement (February) About Zorua and Zoroark from Coro Coro and it was all just about a "New Pokemon" for the Phantom Z Movie. Junichi Masuda was the first to show us the blacked images for both before Coro Coro leaks from what I remember. Names for Gen 5 weren't released until April which was done on Pokemon Sunday I believe by members of Gamefreak and later confirmed by the Coro Coro issue. Or vice versa. Zekrom and Reshiram were both released later that year before game release.

I wasn't around for HG/SS but I remember something similar happening as my friends were force feeding me info since I wasn't all that interested.

Both cases, other media posted information, one of which media hosted a high member of Gamefreak to do the revealing. The main sites didn't update thier info until after both of these were done. Zorua and Zoroark were hosted on pokemon.co.jp until the game's names were revealed and the site went public.

I'm basing solely from memory. I wasn't active here then so my memory of full details isn't accurate on minor details. I remember a few larger boasts and that's pretty much it.

From what I remember about B/W, international info didn't go up until the mascots were revealed. Basing solely on where I was at on my RP site that others started to notice the next Generation.

Maybe they are going to release a Hoenn based pokemon game which happens a few years after the event in Emerald. Considering now is the 10th anniversary of Ruby and Sapphire.

10th anniversary passed like 2 months ago (for R/S) and wouldn't be until next year for emerald. Besides that, we already ruled out the "10 year anniversary for remakes" thing as FR/LG weren't for their 10 year anniversary. HG/SS were before their anniversary by a few months.

You mean announce a Sequel to Emerald? Please no. There are Generations that look like there maybe sequels such as Gen 4, but I really don't think Gen 3 is one of them. Anyway, there are two events that we have hopes for the announcement of Generation 6 this month, RSE Remakes, or Gray. That's tomorrow on Pokemon Smash and on the eigth with the International Announcement.

I'm leaning away from a Side Series Game. Side Series games usually don't recieve this kind of promotion. Take a look at Mystery Dungeon for example, it's one of the most popular Side Series Games in Pokemon but it was not promoted internationally when it was announced. So, I'm leaning more towards Masuda's earlier statement of "Evolving the Pokemon World in 2013."

To anyone still doubting that its game related, Masuda just tweeted:

Why does everyone still think there's going to be a Pokemon Gray

There will not be a Pokemon Gray
Kyurem already has its own Game Infact Kyurem has 2 Games the most any pokemon has ever had
So You can Cross Gray off the list

Maybe it will be Pokemon Magma Ruby and Aqua Sapphire <- (Those are cool names)

Or Maybe Pokemon ???a Version and ???b Version (??? Means name not yet discovered)

^ Sweet this pretty much means they are anouncing Pokemon GameA and GameB Versions (Maybe not the Physical games but we can pretty much assume those are already in development before Black 2 and White 2 well atleast the engine anyway

So Gamefreak officially stakes its claim. Lets all pray it isn't another Mewtwo event.

What does RT mean anyways? Or is it just a tag thing?

If for some reaso it does turn out to be an event I hope it's Manaphy. Or maybe the other dragon not in B2W2 (R and Z).

RT - Retweet.

So it doesn't look like Junichi Masuda has anything interesting to say on Smash later as some expected.

"Junichi Masuda @ Junichi_Masuda
Pokemon Smash from 7:30 am tomorrow, January 06! (TV Tokyo series) is determined throne strongest tournament Pokesuma 5th! Pokemon Battle # 1 is the strongest in the Poke Suma members: Who are you? ! Also appeared Masuda, Game Freak Morimoto-kun! By all means, please watch! Stay tuned to ask to battle high level! (^ ^) / ~ ~ ~"

But he's tweeted about the 8th announcement so I can't really see it being non-game related now.

When I see the announcement is going international, I think it is undoubtedly will be the announcement of A NEW GAME or two. I hope it's Hoenn's Game rather than a new Gen VI games.

Yeah I don't want a new Generation this year, not internationally anyway. B2W2 came so fast and I'm not even done with it. Post-game wise that is. I hope they aren't rushing the main series too much. If this was last year I'd love main series games to come out asap but I'm busy now so I welcome the duration between titles.

But they are really getting hyped. I heard someplace that the Pokemon franchise is evolving in 2013, whatever that means. Maybe that is what this news is about?

Yeah, that was their new years card that said that. Considering the closeness between the card and this makes me think it's not a coincidence, something's coming, something big according to all the hype they've piled up these past few days.

Really don't want it to be Gen VI yet, Gen V has another year in it. So far, Gen V has been a let down, so really, it needs something. It done it's job though, none of you have said bye to Pokemon yet.

Here is what I think it could be:
  • Gen VI (Please, No)
  • Remakes of RSE (Yes!)
  • Spin Off (Not so keen on this one)
  • 3DS Remakes of RSE (Definately)
  • Wii U Pokemon Game (Battle Revolution or something)

Yeah, half of them are pretty bad ideas, but really, I don't want much. I think a Gen VI announcement is probably going to happen, but I want Gen V to just have that one last chance it deserves.

I for one do hope these will be Gen VI games. A Colosseum/XD followup (or a similar game with a complete world, wild Pokémon and less double battles) on the Wii/WiiU would be great news too.

I'm really excited honestly and I really hope it's generation six! By International I hope it means it goes up in Australia first so it's technically 7th, or unless they're waiting til Japan's time. w/e I'm looking forward to it. If it's R/S remakes... I just won't really be that excited. It just feels like it should be gen six. I love Unova and all but it's fully rushed and I don't want R/S remakes in generation 5 because I don't want it merged with B/W + B2/W2 :x and IDK EVERYTHING MAKES ME THINK GENERATION SIX. Please GF, PLEASE. I want Generation Six so bad sdfghjkl. Well for nostalgic reasons too and all the possibilities and omg. I just can't even. :3;

GENERATION SIX ALSO MEANS NEW STUFF IN COMPETITIVE NEW MONS NEW TYPES NEW EVERYTHING UGH I WANT THIS I WANT NEW POKEMON IN NU TO BE AWESOME okay i'm crazy.

Australia have still not updated their website with a countdown so whether they're joining in with the news announcement I don't know but either way, we'll all know by Tuesday.

This is very exciting and it seems to be growing each day, part of me thinks it's something else as opposed to the predictable Generation VI & Ruby & Sapphire Remakes.

Whatever the announcement is, I just hope the next Pokemon games are similar to Dragon Quest 8. To me, Dragon Quest 8 is how Pokemon should be like in 3d.

What if its a game with a new region next to Hoenn? It could be like HGSS game. A remake AND a new game! Though maybe expand the storyline into both regions I'd be happy with that!

Gen 6 would be fun, so would RSE, I just hope its something good

Hoenn is an Island I believe, atleast that's what it looks like on Serebii in the Pokearth section.
