It's better off being released in October so people have time to get it before the big holiday rush, and the rush can still push more sales in general. Competition doesn't really matter all that much either as there isn't a lot that's terribly similar to Pokémon games as it is that would directly compete with them.

    The only thing I see hindering sales is the transition to the 3DS, which even that isn't that big of a deal as games have shifted hardware before, and it won't the be last the either.
    I didn't say there was a certain time that it takes before a new game is released. It just an general idea.

    Although gamefreak doesn't have a competitor which makes similar games, it still has to compete with other very popular games. Besides compertition also helps sales.

    I never really said that October will be a bad time for the sales, I said it can. As game marketing can be a risk or a great idea, considering the factors.
    The picture says it all!
