    Seeing as it's been 17 years since GF made a sequel generation, it's hard not to be pessimistic. Nothing about what I've heard about SM so far indicates any kind of connection to Kalos or Zygarde. Just the fact that SM will be set in Hawaii (aka. nowhere near France) should be enough of a giveaway.

    To be honest, I think the idea of sequels is dead as long as Masuda is still in charge of the games. Even though he actually hasn't come out and said it, he doesn't seem to be a fan of sequels. The very first games he directed (RSE) went out of their way to break ties with the previous games, and every single consecutive generation since then has been an isolated entity with no connections to any of the previous gens.

    From what I've read, even B2W2 were only made because of executive meddling from Nintendo, who thought that sequels would sell better than the standard third version on the then dying DS. If it had been all up to Masuda, we probably would've just gotten a generic Grey version, instead.

    You know, I think I'm gonna wait to hear what Zygarde's fate is going to be in the new games. As much as I want Kalos to be the "post-game" region, many people think it won't work due to the most likely chance of having more islands, them having to upgrade Kalos with some of the graphical changes they made to the characters, and how much the 3ds space can take all of this. but then again, Zygarde's role don't fit in the new region when it's suppose to be protecting Kalos... And I don't see them ditching AZ's floette... Perhaps those islaands were the ones that went to war with Kalos? If the DS can handle everything HG SS offered, and if it's a bit bigger than what the Sevii islands were, GF can't just throw Zygarde, and AZ and his Floette in the new region without a legitimate backstory to that..

    That strange souvenir kinda debunks what Zygarde protects the new region. But it'll be interesting if it was the master of "Marshadow" as well as Solgaleo and Lunaala.

    What sequel can they even do for this Gen...?
