    Pokemon has been alive for over a decade. There are now over 600 pokemon. Do you think Pokemon X and Y is the end. Has Game Freak run out of ideas.

        These sort of topics have popped up every generation since Generation 3. No, they aren't out of ideas and it isn't the end of Pokemon. They will continue to make Pokemon games until they stop making money. They have a huge file of unused concepts that they just end up fixing up later on if they don't hire new artists. Munna and Tirtouga were both concept Pokemon from Generation 1 that reappeared in Generation 5. This is probably going to happen up until they stop being able to sale.

        That is a HORRIBLE analogy....Basically you just said, yes this is the last game and Pokemon has run out of ideas. Swiss Cheese DOES have holes in it, so relating the question "Are they running out of ideas/is this the end of Pokemon?" to the question "does swiss cheese have holes?" is saying yes. -w-

        A better analogy for this would be, can pigs fly? Since this is more of a general topic than it is about X and Y, I'm going to move this on over to Pokémon Gaming Central where it'll fit in better.

        As for my two cents. Gen II was supposed to be Pokémon's last generation, but since the franchise became so popular GameFreak had no choice but to keep on going. Since Pokémon is still such in high demand and one of the best selling franchises for Game Freak and Nintendo both, don't expect Pokémon to be going anywhere anytime soon. Gen VI is just another new generation of many more to come.

          My mistake. You know what I was trying to say, I just analogized on the wrong side of the question.

            This is really the best post in the thread as of now cause it answers the question to a t. And idk why this even is a discussion, that being said.

            I'm moving this to General since this can broaden out to the generation as a whole, and not just the games.

                I doubt it. Like said above, Pokémon is still making money, so I doubt they'll end 15 years into it. Heck, I'll be 100 in 2090 and we'll probably still have Pokémon then.

                  This topic's been talked about alot lately so I'll just say the same thing I say everytime. No. As others said, since Pokemon still widely popular and successful. Generation II was gonna be the end of , but then GameFreak realized that as long as new Pokemon are in demand, they can more money off the games. There's likely gonna be some successor of the 3DS and when that system is released, there will bound to be a Pokemon game for it.And to answer the "Are GameFreak running out of ideas?" question? No I don't think so. There's still many creatures and things that can made into Pokemon. There's million of creatures in the world, and alot of them still aren't Pokemon. There's alot of them who are complex and such, but there's still many ideas in the sea.And there's also many new game mechanics GameFreak can introduce to the game, so I think there's many more years of Pokemon to come.

                  I don't think they've run out of ideas, plus Pokemon is the second biggest selling video game franchise so it's unlikely to end anytime soon. Why end Pokemon now cos the franchise is still making money? No it won't.

                  I don't believe so. GF will most likely continue to make more and more generations with hundreds more new Pokemon with more to come. If GF were to completely halt the production of new Pokemon, it would more or less signify the death of Pokemon. Without new makings, people will get bored and will eventually leave the fandom, and that might probably apply to me too. I would probably see Pokemon grow until the end of time.

                  I don't think so. Game Freak has new ideas every time, and Pokemon is one of the biggest franchise, so I know that Game Freak will not end this franchise.

                  I think as long as they make money off of it, and forums like this and many others still exist, they will continue making it. Maybe there will be Pokemon based off the same animal but different designs. I mean, IRL there are many kinds of the same animals just different types. That could work in Pokemon to I guess.

                    This got me thinking. I wonder if Pokemon will ever overtake Mario to become Nintendo's biggest selling franchise.

                    As for whether they will stop making new pokemon, well I said that they might stop at the end of Gen IV mainly because of Arceus but they carried on and Pokemon X and Y are already in the process not even two years after the release of Black and White. So on that basis, it looks like Pokemon will be around for a long time yet with even more new pokemon waiting to be made in years to come.

                    To be honest, no I don't think Gen 6 is the end. Despite being a massive load of Pokemon to catch, see and find out more about,they'll probably continue making new games, on new consoles,who knows one day we might witness Pokemon on a Kinect? Also the franchise is a huge success and is drawing in loads of profit, plus I'm sure people are working day and night, creating new Pokemon to put into future games. To sum it all up, I doubt Gen 6 is the end, Pokemon will continue on and on till there's over 2000 mons probably. :x

                      Pokémon will continue with new generations being released as long as Game Freak has new ideas, and the games keep selling. I've heard the "last generation" rumors when Generation V was announced, and it was bunk then also.

                      Doesn't . . . doesn't someone ask this every generation? Sometimes even with a new game in general. . . .

                      No, Pokémon won't be ending anytime soon. That's a simple fact of life. They'll keep making it until it becomes ridiculous and they can no longer make money off of it. I, personally, think there's so much more they could do with the series. They just have to move away from the basic, generic Pokémon formula. That's unlikely to happen and is completely besides the point, but whatever, lol.

                        Pokemon won't stop for a LONG time, especially if Gamefreak starts taking ideas for Pokemon from fans. I've seen hundreds of Fakemon that should be legit because they're so awesome.

                        Probably not. I don't see it ending unless either GameFreak runs out of ideas, or the game quality sharply declines somehow, or people manage to get burnt out off of it.

                          Short answer no.
                          As for run out of ideas, again no, as for good ideas, again no. Unlike alot of people I really liked most of the designs in Gen 5

                            If it was the end, they would have made a big deal about it when it was first released.

                            It would be:
                            "X and Y...the final chapter in the epic Pokémon saga!!"

                            Not:
                            "X and Y coming in October!" 5 months later: "Oh by the way these are the last games."

                            And if there's a third game or remakes or sequels or prequels or anything else in gen 6, I still won't think it's the end. There is no reason to end something that is so commercially and critically successful.

                            It's also the turning point in the art style, and the first time we're seeing international releases. It promises big change, so it would be awkward to end it at gen 6.

                              I imagine that DECADES FROM NOW, our children will be playing Pokemon games that contain more than five thousand of those little buggers. More Pokemon will be known than there is cells in the human brain.
                              But then I remember that it's only a video game and it will one day end. But not soon, that I assure you. If Mario can go for Twenty-Five years and Kirby for Twenty you can bet that Pokemon can meet that record.
