Pokémon Gaming CentralFor topics that aren't necessarily restricted to one game, Pokémon Gaming Central ranges from comparing and contrasting the differences in the gaming generations to discussing the gaming franchise as a whole.
Ive noticed a pattern of console spinoffs for every two generation (with the exeption of gen III)
genI and genII had pokemon stadium and stadium 2(N64). pokemon R/S/E had colleseum and XD (GC).
gen IV and V had battle revolution(WII). Am I the first one to predict another stadium like console spinoff for the WIIU?
Generation 5 didn't have a Stadium Spinoff. Generation 5 Spinoffs are the new Mystery Dungeon to come out, Pokemon Rumble Blast, PokePark 2, Conquest, 3D Pokedex/Pro, Typeing game, and TCG how to play.
If anything for Gen 6, we'll get another PMD and prolly something close to Conquest unless they make another Ranger game.
I don't think Gen 5 got a Stadium spinoff because of its Random Match Up feature. If they kept that feature with Gen 6, I see almost no point in a Stadium for Gen 6 as the Pokemon are now in 3D as a Handheld so I can battle online against people at any Wifi compatible location, not to mention fill the role of standard tournament styled Stadium play with Battle Tower or what ever replaces it.
The Handhelds seem to have stolen the need for the Stadiums.
I'm praying they finally come to their senses that with the release of a new Orre/Shadow type game, would bring sales with the WiiU. This should become evident after XY and the 3DS. I always loved those games, certainly the darker storyline and a fantastic transition from RSE.
I would love to see a game return to the Orre region, or perhaps even a brand new region. Colosseum to date still stands as one of my favourite games. (Sadly I did not get alot of playtime with XD never owning a copy) It would be the first truly HD Pokemon experience.
