To be clear, I agree on the fact that giving the generation a moniker title is relatively pointless; it's a tradition thing that perhaps means little to those who weren't around in early 00's. I simply thought that since it will be on Bulbapedia anyway, having the whole community, rather than a single person as in Gen IV and V, decide upon the name would be much more preferable.
I have also opened the poll for Generation IV's situation; you can find it here. If anyone is interested, be sure to come by!
Unown generation. Cuz Unowns make letters.
Or Axis Generation. I like that ^.^
I like Axis Generation...
I'm okay... I'm just... need to be alone right now...
To be honest, I'd prefer not to have a nockname this time. A nickname is something spontaneous and natural, not something you force everyone else to use. Thus forcing a nickname that just one random person randomly slapped on an article (as it's the case with Gen VI BEFORE IT'S EVEN RELEASED) not only defeats the purpose of the nickname, it's simply stupid. Even voting for a nickname, while a better option, is still lame. The nickname should emerge naturally as times goes by and we refer to the generation in one way or another. And then, if a nickname dosn't appear, then it's fine, because it means that it wasn't needed. Not every generation has to have a nickname just because the previous ones before had it.
Why hasn't anyone deleted the nickname from the article until we ACTUALLY decide what to call the generation? It's a bit offensive towards the ones who don't like the genetic generation nickname and to this thread. Why hold this if our final decision won't be respected? If we're sticking with the "Genetic generation" that was forced into the article, then close this thread and don't make us waste time in here, for god's sake.

I'd say.... New Generation or Revolution generation. Condidering they may be doing new things - aside from steering away from classic, the possibility of no more bike, and new puzzles that require your hero to actually DO something other than running, falling, or biking.
Genetic Generation is a okay nickname for gen 6, but really any nickname that makes sense is fine with me.
I really want gen 6 to have a nickname to avoid accidentally saying gen sex when talking to someone about Pokémon in real life, since I already did that a few times...
I would like to put in my two cents here; to me it makes much more sense to call Generation 6 "The 3D Generation" than Generation 4. But I really think the nicknames could probably be dropped altogether because, like VeggiePopper says, they're supposed to come about organically, not diplomatically voted and decided on.
I don't actually know of anyone who's called Generation 4 "the 3D generation", and if they did do that know, it would cause confusion because it'd sound like they were talking about Generation 6.
The actual text in the sites refers to these nicknames as "sometimes called" or "known as" so this site hypothetically speaking giving the gen nicknames and people not using them would make those parts of the articles in a way lies would they not so I say for the sake of honesty we not put anything on the site unless people actually use it.

1. There is a DNA helix in the logo for the Japanese games.
2. The name is X and Y, which are the two chromosomes for male and female.
3. Genesect is appearing in the new movie, and it was altered biologically by Team Plasma.
4. Mewtwo is appearing in the next movie, and it was created after DNA engineering experiments caused by Team Rocket. Additionally, it's getting a new Forme which would have something to do with that.
5. There is a Deoxys event starting on May 8th. The species name of Deoxys is "DNA Pokemon."
I know Point 3 is about the movie and not X and Y, and 6 is an event, but they are definitely trying to hint at genetics over axis. Thus, I think it should be called, as people have said before, the Chromosome, Genetic, Helix, or DNA Generation, or if you're punny:
On a serious note, Chromosome would be more logical.
Genetic Generation doesn't sound half bad.
Chromosome Generation makes sense, but it doesn't have the feel to it
Axis Generation makes sense, but it sounds evil with WWII
Pokemon W and Z versions?
Axis generation actually represents the names of the games so..Yeah....I think Axis generation sounds good
