I already heard some good guesses, but do your best guess in this thread: what will be the names of the 5th generation of Pokémon? Pokémon Black & White? Pokémon Sun & Moon? Pokémon Purple & Orange?

    Well, they are all named after something that exists in real life.
    Color named games are past (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green), as well as metal named games (Gold, Silver, Crystal), and also gemstone named games (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald).

    So, I think it will be something more sophisticated and they might make G/S/C remakes

        i really don't think they'll remake GSC.. whats the point in making something old if you can make something new? the only reason they re-made kanto was to get all the kanto and johto pokemon to the GBA and DS. why would you even want a remake, the original GSC games are still playable right? i really dare to bet a lot of money on 'no remake of GSC'

            I wanna rule out sun/moon cause that is basically G/S. I also wanna rule out black and white cause they could have used it to introduce dark with light pokemon. So titanium/platinum, quartz/amethyst, alluminum/copper, or as a really god one blue/pink. Blue for a boy only adventure and pink for the girl only adventure. Hey thats not bad a boy version of pokemon with all the uber looking pokemon and a girl version for all the sickengly cute pokemon. Except pikachu he stays wih the men.

            Hey, if it makes them money, why not? A lot of people have problems with the internal battery in GSC, anyway. Mine's been dead for about a year now...

            Eh, I'm not betting... Just guessing... I think the jewelry thing is kind of cool, Pokemon Jade? XD Platinum? XD I'm just thinking of jewelry-related stuff. XD

              The reason for making GSC would be to ressurect a generation that fans love the most and will always be in their memories with all their graphic-power impressionism . And wow, about Blue/Pink .... That sexist . And why Pikachu stays with the men ? If we go by your logic, he stays in both versions . Just because you're a man ? How selfishly disturbing.

                Pokemon marshmallow and pokemon lesbian

                Which translates as....

                We dont know and we have nothing to base our guesses off of anyway. Nintendo have announced nothing, all they have done is buy out a load of web addresses, for example pokemonopal.com. However these are all minerals and likely to be the third in the 4th gen series, and there are so many to guess from we won't know anyway.
                Since evidence points at a jhoto remake, names are likely to be variation of gold and sliver.

                I'm a guy, but I have to agree with Berlitz here. Besides, the "sickeningly cute" pokemon aren't really that strong. And what you need in Pokemon is strong pokemon. Besides, why should gender decide what kind of Pokemon you get? I mean, seriously. A female might want to choose her gender as that and still want uber Pokemon.

                Either way, we've really gone off-topic with this. The topic is about names. I think the name will be that of some stone, like always. Perhaps Maleckite and Aluminum or something?

                  A great name for a new version would be Pokemon Amethyst, It suits well with Diamond and Pearl. But really, who's to say that they'll bring out a new Pokemon generation? We could all be wrong, what if Nintendo decides to stop creating new Pokemon w/ the games simply because they have run out of ideas? My opinion on this is we can't judge because we don't know.

                    Did you know, pink used to be a "boys" colour in Victorian times? I watched it on this programme. Colours being for boys or girls is just a social construct. Anyway, isn't Diamond and Pearl pink and blue? Some boys bought Pearl and some girls bought Diamond. I don't really get what you're on about with the Pikachu thing though, I don't think anyone said it should be in one version.

                    Depends why you play Pokemon. I keep some Pokemon with me not because they're strong, but because I like them.

                    Yeah, a bit haha. I reckon Platinum could be a name for the 5th gen, though

                      I'd be Pokemon: Don't buy this game becasue we already overdid this franchice to the extreme and more pokemon so we can finaly just kill this franchise because we made a huge mistake releasing 3rd and 4rd gen version

                      because honestly when 5th gen is released the whole franchise is gonna collaspe..

                        in my opinion the new games should be: remakes, extras and new worlds WITH THE 493 POKEMON---no more pokemon. i think its enough, huh?
                        by the way, about names... what about pokemon opal and topaz? or, for the remakes (lke FR /LG) dusk gold and dawn silver? (ive heard nintendo has already bought the rights over these names)

                            "I'm a boy, but I have to agree with Berlitz here " - What ?

                            Being a boy or a girl or a transexual doesn't matter . And pokémon don't need to be strong,they need to be what you like, because you can make they strong and unique. As Karen said and I remark as my phisolophy :

                            "Strong pokémon,weak pokémon . That's onily the selfish perception of people . True champions should win with their favourites. " - Karen, Johto's Elite Four .

                            You can EV/IV train if you feel the need/like to , or whatsoever , but my Wigglytuff can cause a mental ilness in your Exploud/Sceptile if you wanna know. Doesn't mean that pokémon is cute or strong by what it looks like . If you want the manga , Blues pokémon are all cute and deceive-looking <3, but they're immensly strong and versatille . I follow her lead. (Y)

                            Still boys mostly dislike Jigglypuffs and many girls do not symphatize with Nidokings .


                            Oh, the stereotypes of society ....


                            Yours so amused to see as the world doesn't change ,

                              Good lord, Berlitz. I've never seen so much formatting in my life.

                              Anyways, on topic, it's gotta be some sort of duality. They could go Pokemon Positive/Negative and work in some sort of magnetic-based legendary Pokemon.

                                All Right people, let's use logice.

                                !st Gen- Color
                                2nd Gen- Metal
                                3rd Gen- Gem
                                4th Gen- Carbon( Diamond is mostly carbon and Pearl is somewhat Biomassive and bio mass must consist of carbon.)
                                5th- By the recent pattern, 1 and 2 were colorized, 3 and 4 were birthstones, so 5 and 6 must be related in another way.

                                Which means we can't expect colors and gems anymore.

                                We can assume it will be sun and moon, has to do with space, but only if gen 6 has to do with time, as if those were deeper meanings into Diamond and Pearl. All we need a new Starters, legends, raries, some newbies, and almost no evos. Without new Pokemon, the anime would have to come up with a new plot other than Pokemon meeting... Which is good so scratch Newbies. I know it's too late early to think of Gen 6 now but somehow with the pattern, it should have something to do with deep space or time.

                                Unpredictability isn't the only option. I know the anime did this table turn but did the other franchise do that? No. I mean, I've seen people in my early childhood that said it was very predictable Togepi had an Evo (Altough not what they expected since they thought he was "Evil")

                                I've made some of my point, I'll be back.

                                  Pokemon Topaz/Amethyst sounds good

                                  Topaz's legendary is a Light Gorilla with a flaming sword
                                  Amethyst's legendary is a Dark Basilisk(off harry potter) that engolfes light
