    The Australian Site still has no announcement advertisement, I wonder if they will join in.

    I am not sure what to make of the countdown being updated just now. It's already the 6th in Japan, so if the announcement is 72 hours away, Japan won't get it until after the 8th and many people will be asleep when the page is updated. I guess that the international website just slacked off.

    If Japan get it on the 8th then that means it will be the 7th for International (if it's in the AM) but it's most likely going to be an afternoon announcement which means it will be gone midnight for most of us Internationally as you've said above.

    Yeah, the Pokemon are the focus of a region, but how do they bring forth the continuation of a story? I can't think of any other ways to have a plot-driven Pokemon game other than by incorporating character conflicts and developments, and possibly legendary Pokemon myths being uncovered. The badge quest and the Pokemon alone do not make a sequel stand out as a sequel.

    I'm not saying I would prefer remakes. I'm not a proponent of remakes. I would love sequels done right, but RS and DP aren’t even good enough candidates to be prequels, so it would be rather difficult. They'd have to make the sequels completely blow their predecessors out of the water. A Hoenn or Sinnoh sequel is too lackluster of an idea because none of the returning characters would be developed and there would be a poor story continuation (they have no choice since the characters suck, lack complexity, and can’t really be developed), and thus the sequel aspect of it is poorly executed. However, I guess introducing new, interesting characters and villains would solve this problem. The only other issue I have with this notion, though, is that even though B2W2 were poor (or at least brought back down to older standards) sequels, I would prefer for the idea to be kept unique to them instead of following the same pattern third versions have.

    By the way, was there ever an announcement countdown similar to this in the past leading up to the release of a new game? 'cause, if not, this is a rather different approach they're taking.

    I guess I made myself misunderstood. No, I do not want remakes. I was just denying sequels to past games since they would likely have a lackluster story.

    I hope it's not Gen VI just so we can be surprised at what they actually announce, everyone is predicting the next generation but for them to come out with something else would just be that little more exciting.

    I didn't say otherwise.

    Exactly.

    Sequel is a rather loose term. We know from interviews that B2W2 started out as third versions and evolved into sequels, and that shows. There can be more interesting ways to incorporate a previous region into a new story. Again, just combining two regions and their elements together would be a departure from the precedent set by B2W2.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it's just the international side slacking off. After all, they're all using different timers so it would be hard to have them perfectly synchronised.
