I'm sure there will be no shortage of Pokemon sprites, at least, but as for overworlds, seeing as 3D tilesets will be incredibly difficult to rip and implement based on the average skill level of coders here, I don't foresee a transition to 3D overworlds any time soon. 2D (or faux-3D) will probably remain the default for fangames. At any rate, it's just an aesthetic difference.

What's more likely is that there will be alterations to the core gameplay. Just like D/P introduced the Physical/Special split, and B/W introduced Triple and Rotation Battles, I have little doubts that Pokemon XY will bring something new that will change the face of the metagame. That's going to require an updated Essentials engine, as well as included data on all new Pokemon, attacks, items, etc.
