i would just like to say that i'm 22 and i enjoy the E rating just fine
just because it's okay for little kids to play it, doesn't mean that it's not good enough for adults and teens.
and ratings are all about how mature the themes are like launguage, violence and nudity, not about the actual plots...i knew a few games that have complex plots that young kids can still play. so yeah...
hopefully the plot will be more complex than the last pokemon game but it would be a shame if it had a higher rating.
They already had a horrible father brainwashing his son and having kept him locked up in his room for years in BW and it was still E for everyone. I don't see how anything else could be more horrifying enough tp mske it higher than E. It'll always stay that way.
Also, E doesn't mean "Extremely childish game for kids 7 and under." E stands for EVERYONE. Period.
No--it wont; Pokémon is a kids' game--there is no way in hell it'd ever get rated higher. The only exception is if, as others have noted, someone complains about pokemon being too violent.
B/W had a plot plenty deep, and was still an E game. I don't see what people are complaining about....
Oh well, maybe it's just me. =]

The Mystery Dungeon games were dark and yet they still all got away with an E rating. Colosseum's edginess got away with an E rating, too.
They'd need to do whatever... Rumble did to get its E10+ rating. Apparently controlling toys that move around to knock the other over counted as enough violence to boost the rating.

I do not think they will rise the rating from E. Despite the amount of disturbing implications brought by all of the games in Generation V, it was still the same. Furthermore, I believe that these upcoming games will take a break from the levels of violence from its previous Generation and feature the return to something lighter and softer.
I don't get why people are fussing over the rating. Regardless of the rating, whether the rating changes or not, I don't really give a crap about it. What I do care about is the actual content of the game, not some silly letter that tells us how old you should be to play the game.

If you can beat up kindergardeners for their lunch money then I don't see what more they could do.
whats wrong with Pokemon having a e10 rating.
10+ is honestly a pretty dumb rating, as a lot of what kids under 10 these days watch on TV is far more graphic and suggestive than even what you'd find in a 10+ game. Maybe it's just that it didn't exist until I was older than 10, but it's a rating I have never payed attention to, not that I really pay attention to any ratings. Honestly, seeing as it's a game about animals attacking each other, I really wouldn't be surprised if pokemon simply got grandfathered into being E when E10+ was created just because by that point people knew what pokemon was and looked past the fact a large deal of it has to do with dog fighting.
The game won't be any better or edgier because "now it's not cool for 6-9 year olds." This entire discussion is asinine.
I highly doubt that GameFreak would make a potentially devastating decision like that. The Pokemon franchise has always been targeted towards the younger generation and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Granted, it would be incredible if GameFreak tried something new and made Pokemon X and Y more mature than their predecessors.
It's very unlikely that a main series game would get a rating higher than E, primarily because it's aimed at the younger generation, and even then, very few spin-offs have received a rating higher than E, and are generally no darker than the main series games are, making the entire rating pointless to begin with.

Nintendo generally allows graphical violence in their games, but pornographic contents are not allowed by them. According to Nintendo, if a game company allows any pornographic contents, the image will be forever tarnished. Some games for Nintendo platforms such as GTA Chinatown Wars and THOTD Overkill have over excessive of violence. However, despite this, Pokémon X and Y are unlikely to receive even higher than E rating, or CERO A rating. (Except they put some violent contents in their games.) This is because Pokémon games are targeted at kids.
well this is ironic... in australia it was just rated PG which is higher than any other main series game (but not PMD... for some odd reason) The only thing i can relation I can think of is that these are the only two games made for the 3DS so perhaps the 3D aspect changes for eye safety or whatever. or is 3d violence more real??? (but that doesn't make much sense either) But i will be pleasantly surprised if there are actual deeper complex themes in there.
