    Which should have been obvious to anyone who was actually paying attention to the tweets.
    Why do that when I can go all hype mad? xD

    They could still foreshadow the announcement, though.
    Hopefully! At the very least though, only an extra 2 days to wait.

    Someone has to say something about the announcement, considering that right now we don't know where to expect to see it, or when exactly that will be. Yesterday's teaser was very random and uninformative.

    And that's for a Smash Host tournament, not any news. That's due on the 8th.

    Not really. This can just be a repeat of Pokemon B/W. New generation announced in January. Game titles and mascots revealed in April (or was it May?). And games are released in September in Japan.

    International release would be be scheduled for Spring of the following year.

    Make this happen, Game Freak!

    January 2010 saw mention of a potential reveal, but no actual reveal. The first silhouette (Zorua and Zoroark's) was revealed on Pokémon Smash on 6th February 2010, with a full reveal the following week in CoroCoro. Black/White were then revealed on 9th April 2010, with Reshiram and Zekrom being revealed both in Japan and internationally on 28th May 2010.

    It's true that the pattern could be repeated again, but I'm not convinced it will. I'm still dead certain that Black 2/White 2 receiving a June 2012 launch in Japan was to allow a 2012 international release, considering how they were still for the DS though. The localisation period between games has also been decreasing (the time between B2W2 was 3.5 months and the latest Mystery Dungeon game is about 4 months), so even if the games are released in Japan in the usual September slot, I wouldn't count out a December 2013 international release (because Nintendo would obviously want to push it before Christmas as opposed to launching soon after).

    Before we can discuss international dates in more detail though, we'll have to wait for details about the Japanese launch to surface though xD. Considering the stage the anime is at though, I doubt we'll be seeing a September launch in Japan - 36 episodes for the N saga feels like too much. Could happen...but we'll have to Sewaddle happen.

    We know that Movie 16 is a Best Wishes movie. With that in mind, Generation VI could be released in late July at the earliest, so it may as well be September. 30-35 episodes for a filler saga is hardly unheard of (the Orange Islands saga lasted that long, and the Battle Frontier saga lasted longer). For all we know, the last few months of Best Wishes might revolve around something unexpected, or alternatively, there will just be a lot of fillers.

    True. There will probably only be around a dozen or so episodes actually focusing on the N arc, but then another 3 or 4 between each one about a generic character of the day and their generic COTD problems xD.

    I wouldn't be surprised if The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo of America/Europe try to get it pushed out internationally before the year is out though. We'll have to wait and see though.

    I could see them wanting to push the games out internationally before the end of 2013. If they wait until early 2014 to release it internationally, that means it would have been 3+ years since the 3DS was released. That's not a good benchmark for Nintendo to set, so I would hope they would try get the first mainline 3DS Pokemon game out before it reaches that point.

    So they're really rushing to get 6th gen out ASAP since it'll be 3 years since the 3DS came world wide. I expect another short Generation before the announcement of the Next Handheld in 2014; there they'll give Game Freak two years to develop 7th gen for said Handheld and thus the cycle of One Pokémon gen per Handheld Gen will resume as always.

    5th gen was destined to be rushed since they announced it the same year that they announce the 3DS, along with it Still being developed for the DS rather than reworked for 3DS (it could took them a year, but it'll be enough to give it a proper release anyways).

    At first I wanted to say that I wouldn't bet on that happening considering how long the DS lasted. But after looking around, I think you may have a point. Nintendo may be worried about the mobile and tablet markets, which have shorter upgrade cycles than the handheld systems do. But even if a successor were to be released in 2015, Game Freak could easily wait until 2017 to release Generation VII, which would make Generation VI four years long. A 2014 launch would be surprising, but I suppose it might happen.

    They'll have nothing to worry about since Smartphones and Tablet were ment to be mobile PCs/Macs anyways. the 5 year Cycle of Consoles and Handheld will continue unless somehow the computer technology is advancing far beyond what we could comprehend.

    I'll give them until 2016, one year after the handheld's release, to finish gen 7.

    And for the RSE port: I suspect that they'll throw in the battle mechanics of gen 6 to make it compatible with the upcoming games, along with features introduced in emerald for both version, and released it for the 3DS virtual Console. Also do the same thing with FRLG.

    I just hope Game Freak does something cool yet unexpected with Generation 6. Something that'll make it the Generation to top when other Generations come out in the future. I'm just excited to see what It'll be like :)

    I really don't think Nintendo will announce its next handheld until many years later... Just like Gen 4 and 5, I believe Gen 6 and 7 will be released on the same handheld console; the 3DS.
