Also, note that cannon was misspelled as canon. For the Pokemon world's sake that better be a typo...
Honestly I think they were trying to make Techno Blast suck. There's no other explanation for it.You know, Technoblast wouldn't be that bad if Game Freak decided to modify the Drive item's effects to increase its power by x1.5, essentially giving it pseudo-STAB. Still kind of crap given it uses up an item slot.
Also, I'd totally buy Purple Version. Genesect > Snivy, Oshawott, and Tepig. NOW CHEREN SHALL BE BEATEN INTO SUBMISSION EVEN HARDER. Ahem, on a serious note I do wonder what that whole 3DS thing is about. There's no data in BW2 that indicates anything beyond what we already know, and the distribution won't be through Dream Radar or anything like that... So what could it be? Maybe just a random advert of no importance...?
Yep, Generation 5 is officially over, at least when the magazine comes out. Anyway, at least now we might see some Generation VI Pokemon soon. I can't even imagine any more starter Pokemon they could make, I wonder how Nintendos gonna handle it.
Arceus was revealed way before Gen V started.
Deoxys' debut marked the last year a Gen 3 game came out...

Genosect always seemed like a weird anthromorphic bug-car (car-bug?) to me, well, minus not having tires and having a big ol' cannon on its back. Two pupils/irises in each eye? Now it seems more car-like. XD "Does that turned-on light on him mean its about to attack, or back up?"
How come we never got such nice scans/photos like this when the majority of BW2 news showed up in Corocoro? I mean when it first started leaking.
This makes me suspect we're going to get a generation 6 3DS game very near the release of the Genesect movie. Considering the dearth of titles on the 3DS, wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo of Japan told GameFreak to get their booties in gear faster than usual.

Genesect (not even as a secondary character) in Movie 16 if said movie were actually actually part of a new generation. While movie teasers have been misleading before, it would be ridiculous if Genesect had absolutely nothing to do with the movie (at least Ho-Oh and Lugia were replaced by Celebi and the legendary beasts, which were also featured in HGSS). So a September release date is the safest assumption, after all.
Guys, you do know that with the advent of DLC on the 3DS, this could very well be the very last time a Pokémon is revealed that we've previously known about?
I think people would start getting bored with me saying "Ha! I told you the next generation was beginning next year!" (although I was so right in that). The big question now is - when in 2012 will Generation VI debut?
We know that Genesect will be in next year's movie, which will more than likely debut in July 2013. However, it's being given out just under a whole year before. Sure, Victini's distribution was treated in a similar way, but as we know, the V-Create Victini was only the pre-order bonus, with Reshiram and Zekrom being the main distribution. This leads me to believe that Genesect will merely be a pre-order ticket bonus for the next movie. But then, what will the main movie promotion be? Genesect being shown now obviously means that the movie has another star, possibly one who takes most of the spotlight - undoubtedly, a Generation VI Pokémon. However, they can't distribute a Generation VI Pokémon to a Generation V game that doesn't have them programmed them. Now, I still maintain that Black 2/White 2 were only released in June instead of the usual Sep-Nov timeframe to allow for the international release in October, as Nintendo would have no hope of selling regular DS games in 2012. However, the way I see it, there are two possibilities:
1) Generation VI's primary pair will launch in Japan before next July. Genesect will be the pre-order bonus and a Generation VI Pokémon will be the main promotion.
2) The main cinema distribution will be a Genesect with a special flag that the Wi-Fi one does not have; possibly unlocking something when traded over to the Gen VI games. The pre-order bonus will then be something like a cute mascot Pokémon that appears in the movie.
3) Genesect is given out as a pre-order bonus, then a "key" to unlock something in the new games is given out for a spin-off game (like the Manaphy egg in Ranger).
All I know is, considering Nintendo's region locking, as well as their digital strategy starting next month, I had better order myself a Japanese 3DS soon xD.
