For awhile it was speculated that Pokemon would not continue after GEN IV. This discussion was then dropped when we heard news of the new Black and White Versions. As time passed, we gathered information that built everything that we know about the Isshu Region today.
And now with what we do know, I can't help but feel that people were right.
Isshu was suppose to be a renewal of the series and with this renewal we -do- in fact have a closed chapter. Because of this, I feel that Pokemon DID end in a sense. The more I find out about the Isshu Region, the more distant it feels from the rest of the Generations. Where Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh felt like continuations of what I knew Pokemon to be, Isshu feels like a New Pokemon World.

That's not to say that I dislike the new Generation. I am very excited for it, and the new Pokemon it brings. But I feel that the Pokemon that I have grown up with since I was 11 are no longer part of this Pokemon Generation. It's neat, because I think that is what they wanted or what they were aiming for, the creators and such. The distant land, no relation to older Pokemon, no way to obtain older Pokemon within the Game itself, all of these things push for an Independent World. It is clear to me that they wanted the older Generation to End, and for a New one to Start. But while I am excited, I am also sad. It feels to me like my pet, my best friend for years, has gone... and I am left with it's child, a new pet. And again, while I am happy for the new updates, there is still a sense of loss. A big one.

Yes, I had to post this too.

    I also feel that the Metagame will split into the Classic Pokemon (Gen1-4) and New Pokemon (All Gens); but that is just a random feeling I suppose.
