Has Generation VI come too quickly? Pokémon B/W was released in 2010 in Japan and three years later and we're moving onto the next generation. Should have Game Freak held it out a bit longer, or is it great that its coming so soon?

It is rather soon after releasing B2 and W2, but is it too soon? I am not sure. There seems to be a hell of a lot of excitement surrounding these two games already, so maybe this will be what they need.

No, I disagree. B&W2 was released for the DS long after the 3DS console was released. People have been itching for 3d Pokemon titles for a while now. Generation 5 & 6 are closer together than Nintendo would usually care to release, however in my eyes this is only a good thing.

Honest opinion? I couldn't wait till we moved onto a 6th generation (or Ruby / Sapphire remakes), because I just couldn't seem to get into Black and White very much at all. So, I welcome these new games with open arms.

In terms of the time frame, by the time X and Y are released, it would be a few months over 3 years since Gen V came out. When you look back at Gen II, it was exactly three years after when Gen III came out. So, as it may be soon in terms of Black 2 and White 2, it's definitely not too soon.

Plus, you do have to consider the 3DS has been out for a couple years now and GameFreak had yet to release a main title Pokémon game for the system until now. They had to have come out with something soon, and I guess 2013 seemed like a better year than any.

I don't think it's too soon. Even though Gen V felt rushed (oh bows down before the grave of generation V, until you four get remade again, adieu) I also felt like it was time to move on to new things. I even hoped that remakes would be delayed for goodness sake, that's how much I wanted to move on.

I have to say it did seem like it came out a bit fast because it felt like I just put down my W2/B2. I'm glad that they're moving on quickly because I was getting bored of having nothing to play on my 3DS (:P).

I think 3 years is enough time for one generation.

I'm still not familiar with all of the 5th generation Pokemon, so it is too soon....at least for me.

Well, generation-wise, not really. There's usually been a 3 year gap between every new generation, with a few exceptions, so it's the perfect time to release a new generation. But considering B2W2 just came out a few months ago, and considering people are highly anticipating R/S remakes, I think it may have been just a tad bit early. I don't mind though :p

I think it did come a bit too soon, most generations usually lasted around 4 years so for it to be ending this year did come a bit unexpected. Well, I'm glad I got my 3DS just in time cos I knew they would make the next main series game a 3DS-exclusive.

I think Xander has a point here, it will be a year after Black 2 & White 2's release but I guess I'm now starting to think Generation 5 is close to Generation 2 as the shortest.

Pokémon would be missing out on so many things if they just opted to not hop on the 3DS. So I'd say it's not too soon simply because their latest games were aging fast. You need to keep on the curve, and if Pokémon was the only franchise without an acclaimed series on the 3DS in the 3DS lineup in 2013, I'm sure Iwata would not be pleased.

Ahh, it has been a year since B/W2 came out so it's not too soon, however if B/W2 had come out a few months ago it probably would be, but since it hasn't, definitely not too soon <3.

Too soon for my wallet. 3DS needs a Pokemon game, so there isn't any problem with it coming out this soon. What's a Nintendo handheld without a Pokemon game, right?

Gen V started one year after Gen IV ended (with the remakes), so it was about time I guess.

While I'd have liked for B/W to last longer, I was really looking forward to Gen 6. I don't think it's too soon really. The Unova journey may have been short but it certainly packed a lot, which I think is what mattered. Plus the time for releasing on 3DS was looming and releasing B2/W2 on 3DS just wouldn't have been right tbh.

B/W was a failure so no it's not too soon, it would have been better if they just skipped B/W. Loving the starters too, so I'm really looking forward to it.

Way too soon, I'm not done with B2W2 yet. But I'm not complaining, they look fantastic.

I agreed its too soon. But I think It can't be helped anyway, since Generation 5 come out at the closing age of DS, so does BW2. I really hope they bring us a good storyline with this one as they did with BW.

I don't think it's too soon at all. I've done B2/W2 main story line and I really can't be bothered doing much of the post game so yeah.

From a consumer perspective: yes. It came rather quickly, and I'm not sure everyone will have played the previous ones by the time the new ones come out.

From a business perspective: no. 3DS needed some main series Pokemon games to give it a better lineup of games. You KNOW 3DS sales are going to be up now.

Every generation generally lasts close to 3 years, so Generation VI looks to be right on schedule. I'm looking forward to this one, as I never got a chance to play any Generation V games...

I feel like they released Gen VI so early to make up for Gen V. Gen V was kinda meh, and Gen VI looks amazing. I don't think it was too soon all in all.

They said the same when Gen 5 announced too. To be faor, Gen V would be perfect if they haven't taken much features they already introduced in HGSS and replaced it with lesser one. If only BW story combined what we have in BW2 (Pokemon World Championship mainly) it would be a good Generation.

I'll hope they not doing the same with Gen VI.

There have been previous generations at a similar length, just because the last generation was four years doesn't mean the following will be. I'm ready for a new game, totally.
