    It would make more sense to call it the "Axis Generation".

    It has been confirmed that the X and Y has nothing to do with genetic but with the XY axis. ("Y" pokemon is in the air and the "X" pokemon is on the ground)

    Which makes me think the 3rd game (if we get one) would be called "Origin" as in the origin point of the Y and X axis...

    When was it confirmed that the names came from the x and y axis? I still like the genetic generation though. Nice alliteration.

      Here's a link. I will admit however with this, I think my "Origin" theory is wrong.

        I'll definitely be calling it the Axis generation, myself... ;w;

        Reason being is because I immediately thought of the X and Y axis once I heard the names of the games.
        Even if the axis has nothing to do with them, I'll probably still call it that. >w>;

        I think I'll call it Axis Generation because axis is based on X, Y (hence Pokemon X and Y is named) and Z.

        I vote for this generation to be called the XtraordinarY Generation for the most obvious reasons.

        Endofstory.

        I think they'll call it the Genetic Generation cos X and Y are well, genes.

        Also, I think it suits it well.

        I wouldn't call that confirmation, but just another theory amongst many that have been circling around. We don't know enough yet to determine what's going to be fact from speculation. To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if the games are more or less based around the different aspects of each of these theories. However, it's hard to dismiss the possible genetics plot when you've got a double helix located in the Japanese logo.

        It could be called the Genectis Generation or the Axis Generation, but what if we don't get a "Z" like many are assuming? So many speculated that Grey would come after Black and White, and we all know what happened there. Also, if RS remakes are included in this generation as well, then that would be a factor in naming the overall generation too.

        I would have called it the Dimensional Generation (X axis, Y axis, Z axis. Obviously). But it's more likely that X and Y are based on genetics, as everyone seems to have agreed on. So I'm going to call it the Genetics Generation, that way I can shorten it to Gen Gen and be happy. ^_^

        To be honest, though, I rarely refer to the generations by titles like that, I normally just refer to them numerically. But I'd be very pleased with Gen. Gen. :D

        I know they won't go with that but I kind of really like that. It's like, R/S remakes could be included in that name too, because they really are... different/extraordinary, so while it doesn't really cover both completely, it still is a nice inclusive name!

          I wish people would stop saying "it has been confirmed" about things that are not in any way confirmed...

          It's not even LIKELY that the XY has "nothing to do with genetic"s. The Japanese logo has a little double helix in it. Obviously it has something to do with DNA. There are even theories of Xerneas representing the nerve system and Yveltal representing muscle tissue.
