Pokémon W...

Definitely worse than Pokémon Y when by itself.
I don't get it :(

And according to Hikari's stuff, it'll go US, Aus the Eu.

It does seem too short for a Pokemon game, I'm used to saying Pokemon Platinum, Pokemon White etc but it just seems cut short when saying Pokemon X or Pokemon Y.

Like Y, W by itself just seems awkward but more so. If they were to title whatever third game we get Pokémon W, whatever OCD I may have is going to kick in and all I'll see it as is an abbreviation of Pokémon White.

    Another possibility is that it can be something like XX or XY, from the whole genetics speculations I guess~!

    Either give us W and Z games and a quartet of box legendaries instead of the mess that was B2W2 or do nothing. W and Z could establish Pokemon that are the beginning and the end to the Xerneas and Yveltal focused Mythos, and perhaps give us an interesting story to go along with XY and Y. Sequel of course, but with massive differences to XY, unlike B2W2 again. The reason I'm saying this is cause with DLC there is no justification for releasing the same game once again with minor updates when they could just patch the game over. Sequels are the only thing that could work with the advent of DLC, and even then they could give the original games a DLC option to start a memory link style new game+

      Unless they decide to leave out DLC from these games... it's possible.
      Though I agree with the W and Z for sequels, after all W and Z make up a another sex-chromosome pair (birds irc).

      Paraquoting here but Masuda said a while back charging for non-substantial DLC is wrong, so likely if any DLC comes from the games it would be massive updates, like what the Battle Frontier or Pokewood can be considered. Stuff like that being added in bundles, and perhaps having the world evolve throughout the years would eliminate the need for 3rd versions/sequels. Not to mention if they feel bad about non-substantial DLC being sold, its wholly hypocritical for them to even consider 45 euro games like B2W2 being sold anymore.

        IMO Battle Frontier and Pokéwood aren't "substantial updates", but I'd pay $2.99 for them.

          What about DLC for Gen VI's event Pokemon, as well as alternate skins for your background like the C-Gears?

            The backgrounds/skins would need to look very cool or beautiful for me to buy them. Legends...well they practically had those of us who wanted the Therian formes of the Kami trio, so I can see something like that for legends.

            What about DLC trainers, similar to the e-reader trainers in gen III.

            Yeah, I can see DLC playing a big part in these games, they have a lot of potential for many different uses such as events, aesthetic changes, new areas, new extended features etc.

            Hm... yeah that probably would be a good idea. But I also thought of another thing as well, maybe trainers can have different accessories, even if one trainer is the same trainer class?

            That would at least make each and every trainer look different and unique in their own way. ;)

              I'm looking forward to some things getting evolutions from gens 1-5 that needed them. Hopefully, nothing else or maybe just 1 thing from 1st gen gets an evolution as most of them already do :s Buuuut, for something like Girafarig, I could see a step up being neat. I always liked Girafarig. Dat typing.

                More X&Y insider junk from 4chan.

                Yes, while I do know that "leaks" from 4chan can be easily taken with grains of salt, (in this case, I highly doubt 4Chan would be anyone with inside info's first port of call...), and yes, I know it's not real info and only just speculations, its just, some of those speculations are... kinda interesting!

                Like the Timetravel idea. Plus given that it's happened before in the games, it wouldn't be as out-there as one may think. The Bond system has serious potential as well, giving pokémon-trainer relationships a bigger role than the Happiness Counter, which, admittedly, I follow. Using it to make way for more moves similar to Return, in addition to the fuzzy feeling you get when your psychotic, sadistic 3 headed Dragon loves you so much, would make raising the critters far more rewarding. Of course, maybe it would also solve the Sylveon evolution mystery?

                Finally, while most of these "new pokémon" sound.... weird, those Card Quartet Legendaries sound kind of cool~ My best guess is that they'd be dual types akin to the Rotom formes who share one basic type. Perhaps Normal or Dark. Or maybe a Normal/Ghost is a combo?

                  What made me skeptical about that rumor is the mention of the total number of new Pokemon as 99, which is far too few for Pokemon standards (not to mention Sylveon being a pure normal, which ruins the pattern of the eeveelutions being based on formerly special-based types).

                    I love 4chan junk! I really want this to be true as it seems plausable but there are some aspects that make this unreal like no regional rodent and bird? Doubt it. I like the Legendary typings as they work and another hole, no third one for their trio. hmmmn.

                      I mean, a lot of this stuff seems at least remotely plausible. Pinsir evolution, something that some fans have been waiting for, could be a good possibility. Hariyama evolution? Seems a bit odd, since Hariyama is pretty powerful in it's own right, but not really arguing much with that. A lot of the other info also seems a bit sketchy, for example only 6 new legendaries, seems way too few, and in general, it just doesn't seem like a move GF would do.

                      It seems like they would add more legendaries, add a brand new experience with brand new Pokemon, things of that nature, and give the player a vast world to explore. x_x Not really trusting in this information, sadly.
                      Well even generations tend to introduce less than odd generations (Gen 1- 151, Gen 3- 135 , Gen 5- 156, and even have Gen 2- 100, Gen 4- 107) so it's best that we don't expect a repeat of Unova, or even Hoenn's numbers.

                      I think that 4 Chan person might be a PC visiter as I mentioned the 4 card thing in new pokemon speculation...

                          I think it'll be around the 13th of next month or so usually it's around the end of the second week of every month as Corocoro tends to be released on the 15th of that month.

                            While some of the rumors are cool, i am pretty sure they're fake.Whoever made that up has good ideas. The Bond system was beautifully done.

                              No one knows when the next leak will be. They aren't guaranteed or dated. Earliest we can get a leak or info is tomorrow through Smash. Other than that we can get them any day before the 15th with a Coro Coro leak, though that is purely up to the ones who want to risk going to jail for uploaded segments of a magazine that is not out yet. Pokemon.com usually updates before the 15th if there is any news in Japan.

                                I'm not buying it at all. Also Pinsir should get an evolution not a baby form....

                                edit: Just read further and saw he mentioned a Pinsir evolution along with a baby form.....eh I don't know why I'm even bothering.

                                That was a completely awesome, and non-believable rumor. Some of the stuff made so much sense, DLC event legendaries come later likely with 6 basic onces, bonding replacing friendship and having it as a huge battle changer with stat boosts and what not, but the amount of detail everything has up to the fact that you have 99 Pokemon with 30 of them being extensions is way too much, including the time travel and the fact that the pokedevice is really a time machine. All cool, radical changes that won't happen, but the rumor is definitely great.

                                  Oh, right…sorry, I haven't really gotten into Generation V yet. I have the games, though, so maybe I'll be able to catch up to everyone else who has that generation of the Pokémon games before Generation VI comes out.
