    this is such crap. why is this becoming news all over? this is regular protocol people. they have to say "no" when asked "will it happen" or else it becomes an announcement, and those announcements are carefully planned, hyped, and scheduled.

    this is pokemon company's protocol as well. i once got to have a heart-to-heart with a pokemon company employee. since i run a merchandise community, i asked him merchandise stuff, including, are you guys going to make raikou, entei and suicune pokedolls now that HGSS is coming out? and he said no. we will not be making those. absolutely not.

    weeks later? they were announced. these dolls are planned up to half a year ahead of time. he even sought me out in the store and said "did you see the announcement? sorry i told you we'd never make them... THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY TO THOSE KINDS OF QUESTIONS."


    this is such crap, i say again.

    This could just mean that Ruby and Sapphire remakes are coming out before Gray, and Gray isn't even being developed yet.

Try again next winter and the answer may be different that time.
    but doesn't this page on serebii say there are move tutors in black and white?

    They already started developing Gray when they were making Black and White. =D

    I really think we shouldn't be freaking out over this. If you ask me, this is nothing more and nothing less than a business move.

    Of course they won't announce a third version when the first two aren't even out yet. And only weeks prior to the international releases, for that matter. That would be like saying "don't bother buying these, there will be a third, better one eventually". Or, basically, suicide.

    These games bring Nintendo money. And no company will give up that kind of profit, no matter how much money they already have. The third version will sell. Most likely big time. They're probably working on it as we speak. But before it brings them money, they want to make as much of it on B/W as possible.

    It's business.

    I can understand this completely, but I am curious: why couldn't they just refuse to answer the question? That would cause less trouble, wouldn't it?

    Probably. But they could have done so intentionally. This could boost the B/W sales a bit. Perhaps they thought that, knowing that there won't be a third version, some more people will go and buy the first two. Every profit is welcome, no matter how small.

    Although, people who intended to buy B/W already bought them or were going to, anyways. This could still very well be a mistranslation or a wrong move, we can't really be sure.

    This is it EXACTLY. Thank you for being the voice of reason in a sea of idiocy :)

    They were there to promote Black & White. Revealing any details, including the likelihood of a future game which improves on it isn't just poor common sense, it's a ridiculously poor business practice. People seem to forget that Nintendo, GameFreak & TPCi are a business, not a company to serve to our insane fandom whims. They focus on the games they're promoting, not on ones eighteen months in the future.

    They did this with the GBA (denied the GBA SP THE DAY BEFORE reevealing), they did it with HGSS, they will do it with everything.

    What's worse is that this whole thing has also been clouded by translation

    Spanish Question into Japanese. Answer given in Japanese, translated into Spanish, then translated into English for the west fandom and then into Japanase for Kotaku. So much meaning can be lost and warped.

    I'm getting fed up with people assuming this is completely legit

    Whoah Serebii. Calm down man. You're gonna get an ulcer from all that raging. If people want to believe that there will be no third version, then just let them. Why should it matter to you man? Just live and let live. When the time comes whoever is right shall be proven right. Okay?

    It's hard to find articles from early 2003, but I'm assuming that the story was similar to what happened with the DS Lite and DSi. At both those times, Nintendo said that the rumors about a planned announcement at a specific time were false, and it turned out that they were. Admittedly, the DS Lite was announced very shortly after that, but not when the rumor indicated. The important thing is that Nintendo didn't say anything to the effect that the DS (or the later the DS Lite) was the last design of the system, whereas Mana Ibe has just said that about Black and White.

    If something different happened with the GBA SP, I'd like to see exactly what was said.

    they did it with HGSS,
    No, they didn't. They had remained silent on the remakes for years; they never had to deny their development.

    I don't believe this claim but, after thinking about it for a minute, it would explain why the BW anime has a fast pacing.

    I cant believe this is still being discussed. It was just something she was told to say if they asked hre about future games. They arent going to say "hey, yeah buy a thrid version when it comes out". Honestly the people conducting the interview should've expected that kind of response. There will be a third game, but its not gonna be announced anytime soon. I dont know why this keeps going around and around.

    Surely it's still way too early to speculate about the 3rd game. Black and White have just come out, so they're not going to bother about talking about the 3rd game yet!
    Yellow, Crystal, Emerald and Platinum took about 2 years to come out after their respective preceeding versions and they usually close their Generations (even if Grey is more likely to be released than a GenIII remake).

    Still, it would be stupid if they confirmed it straight away, because then people would wait 1 or 2 years for it and that would end up hurting B/W sales!
    And in another side of the story it would be sad to not have a 3rd version which is more complete and has more and better content than its preceeding versions; this and the fact that we're all grown so used to having a 3rd version every Generation.
