Nope. Gen V was hard to swallow for me. Didn't play it too much.

I'm actually excited for Gen VI. I can remember not being excited for Gen V really at all.

In ways I feel it is too soon, mainly because I was really hoping for RSE remakes. I'm still excited, don't get me wrong, but this time around...I think the introduction of a new generation feels rushed. (And perhaps we'll see this as time passes and more Pokemon are released.) I mean, why couldn't they have moved onto the 3DS, but instead of creating a whole generation on the transition, created RSE remakes we've been craving for? That way, they've moved onto the 3DS, staying with the trends, and aren't moving too fast.

It does seem a little bit soon (only 3 months after the release of BW2 outside Japan), but with the 3DS already being 2 and a half years old by the time X and Y come out, and a year and a half between X and Y and BW2 in Japan, the timing does seem about right. Personally, I would have waited until the early Spring to make the announcement, so they'd have even more time to work on the game before much speculation arises.

Because in that case, what then? They will release a new generation and suddenly the game isn't compatible with the "previous generation" one.

Maybe this time you can just stick your laurels on the idea that the remakes will pop up on a much more superior console.
Or you may find that they won't even release any remakes any more.

Dude. It's been... 3 years? I thought it had only been about 1.5-2. It seemed like literally just a week or two ago I saw all the new Pokemon being slowly revealed and all the hype around it. Freaky. Well, I guess if this games are set to be released at the 3-year mark, then it's not too soon. But it sure feels like it!

Gen V had an awkward release time so it's not too surprising. The shortest generation was I think either I or II so this isn't that big of a deal. Besides, it's time to move onto new hardware.

If the release was now then yeah, probably. But we're all forgetting the giant 10-month wait we have between now and the full release. Just because we know about it, doesn't make it too soon. Tbh we already knew about Gen 6. And we already know about generations 7, 8, 9, etc. They've just not been announced yet but we know they're all coming and we know they're all gonna have new F/W/G starters, new legends, etc. 10 months from now seems a perfectly reasonable release date to me, especially since I thought that B2/W2 were totally stale from their announcement lol.

Also, Game Freak needed to get on-board with the 3DS sooner rather than later. If they waited much longer they'd be making a game for it pretty late in its product cycle and before they know it people are already starting to move onto a new console, costing them sales.

While I wanted RSE remakes in Gen V, the year Emerald that came out in America was 2005 (Ruby and Sapphire came out 2003 for Americans) and they seem to wait for special anniversaries (like with Heart Gold and Soul Silver, 10 years after Gold and Silver)...so 2015 maybe?

Nah, I never thought it was too soon to release a new generation. Even if it only lasted a year and a half internationally, but it's going to become 2 years after March, though it'll already be 3 years in Japan. I think we all have been too used to seeing new generations getting released 3-4 years.

Remember, Game Freak had already warned us that Pokémon Black and White games would faster paced than previous games. And I could already understand that the DS was almost at it's ending point, and so the 3DS becomes the new handheld device and has to be used in 2013 for the Pokémon franchise. ;)

And besides that, Game Freak has already said that there's no pattern when they develop video games.

Three whole years is MORE than enough for any given generation. Generation IV somehow held out over four years, and as far as I'm concerned it couldn't have ended sooner. So no, I understand that having one generation introduced immediately after another can be upsetting—except that this is not the case, because three whole years is not "immediately".

I feel like this gen is coming a bit too soon, but I'm not bothered by it at all. n__n I felt that gen IV overstayed its welcome and when gen V came around, it was a breath of fresh air. I guess they didn't wanna do that again and have a generation stay for too long, or maybe they were just THAT ready to get Pokemon on the 3DS.

Yesterday, I went to bed thinking, "it's around that time for a new mainseries Pokemon game to be announced." Today, here it is. But we just got B2/W2, so it kind of does feel a little bit early. I guess GF doesn't want us to get bored too soon...

It's really is too soon,
But whatever It's great anyway that they revealed it quickly,
They really had to hide it from all of us.

I feel that it is indeed a bit too soon. I mean, I've hardly progressed through Black 2, and already the new Generation is here. But hey, with Fennekin's and X's designs, along with the overhauled look of the entire games, I think Game freak wanted to unleash this blessing sooner than later.

Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Red/Green were released in 1996.
Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver were released in 1999.
Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire were released in 2002.
Pokémon Pearl and Pokémon Diamond were released in 2006.
Pokémon Black and Pokémon White were released in 2010.
Pokémon X and Pokémon Y is being released in 2013.

How is it too soon, given mostly every generation lasted roughly three years? Some of y'alls math is messed up if you think it's too soon to move on...

I think thats its too soon, after all, I haven't even finished White 2.

I intially thought that it was too soon, but after awhile I find it that a new gen should come soon because 3DS doesn't have a mainstream Pokemon game, which IMO, is a major selling point.

I think the fact that BW2 were released along with BW is what makes it too soon. I mean, people were sorta expecting a third version for Gen V, so getting Gen VI instead threw everyone off. I think, instead of just new Pokemon and new regions, we like paying attention to the storylines more, which is what Gen V has two of. So, in a way, we still have to soak up Unova's story for a bit before heading straight ino XY's story, on a count of it being twice as large than any previous story. (Provided one doesn't count Gen I and gen II's stories as one whole story)

...People were expecting a third version for Gen V? The only expectations that I really heard of was the expectation that it'd be about Ruby and Sapphire remakes. Even so, that prediction on its own doesn't really seem like a good reason to merit the rationalization that it's too soon. The sequels to the generation games are made 4 years apart from one another, anyway. Mathematically, it all seems logical to me to expect a new generation. Besides, why else would they announce that they have an announcement to make for the whole world if it would have been for a 3rd game based off of two games they released in 2010? I can't follow that.

Well I wasn't looking forward to having r/s remakes in the style of b/w because it wasn't a massive step up compared with the other two remakes, so I'd love to have r/s (hopefully) making the big step up to 3d

It wasn't too soon at all!
Gen III and IV lasted an extra year longer because they were releasing remakes of Gen I and Gen II instead of moving on.
Now that the two obsolete generations have been remade, there is no longer any reason to lag behind.

When I came on here today I literally said WTF?! Lol Not in a bad way though, I just didn't expect it. I don't think it's too early, really especially since it's supposed to come out in what is almost a whole year (Plus whatever delays there might be)

I guess if you like gen V, the gen VI might come up too soon, but for those who didn't really enjoy it, it really isn't too early.

As for me, I really didn't like the story of B/W, B2/W2 is better, but still so I tell myself: ''I don't mind if next gen isn't release as fast as possible.

And like many other mentionned, it will be about 1 1/2 year after its released in Japan, so not too soon.

I feel it's too soon for me since I haven't played B2/W2 but they have been out a while so I guess it's a reasonable time-frame xD
