Wii U - 2013 - Ruby and Sapphire remakes (Gen 5)
3DS - 2014 - New versions
Wii U - 2015 - FireRed and LeafGreen remakes (Gen 6)
3DS - 2016 - Gen 6 sequels
Wii U - 2017 - Diamond and Pearl remakes (Gen 6)
3DS - 2018 - New versions
Wii U - 2019 - HeartGold and SoulSilver remakes (Gen 7)
3DS - 2020 - Gen 7 sequels
With a schedule like this, though, Game Freak wouldn't be able to do it all by themselves. Personally, I would rather another company did the remakes, so Game Freak could focus on the new gems; Game Freak already set the tone the first time around so its only a matter of imitating it.
How about square enix making the remakes they would work well with the wii u. There also much more experienced with RPGs.
If they are going to release a Pokemon game on Wii U, I am going to rage quit like I did when Pokemon jumped to the DS. Had to worked at my Dad's restuarant till I had the money to afford a DSi and I don't even have a 3DS.
But I do believe that Gen 6 is going to be in the 3DS platform since I think they are done with the DS.I don't think it's going to be in the Wii U since we are going to have difficult connecting to the other platforms.If they are doing R/S remakes in Gen 5, I think it will be on the DS platform but if it is in the Gen 6; it would most probably in the 3DS platform.
Most of this is best summarized as some people taking the three-way split of the copyright to mean things it has never meant, ever, and will never mean, ever.
The core titles will never be farmed out to another developer. Never. And particularly not because of anything to do with the development time - Game Freak has had zero issue turning out core titles at a rate nothing short of acceptable for the last seventeen years and the notion that they're going to have to start handing off core titles to another developer at this point is puzzling at best and borders on ridiculous otherwise. Core titles will also never be moved wholesale to home consoles. Please stop the unnecessary keening over this non-possibility.
The myriad spinoff and side titles will never be farmed out to developers other than the cadre of second-party developers under Nintendo's umbrella. Yes, sorry this means that no, Square-Enix, Capcom, Konami, Electronic Arts, THQ (now bankrupt, but no point in letting reality get in the way of some good sarcasm) or whatever other random and completely unrealistic developer the next poster comes up with will never see work on a Pokémon title. Ever.
If someone wants to follow this up with the near obligatory "well how do YOU know?!" song and dance, be my guest, just please do it quietly, people are sleeping.
I don't know why common sense has completely gone out the window in the time it takes for a cryptic announcement of an announcement to hit the airwaves, but alas, here we are.
Game Freak does not have to release the main games in a time frame, they can do it whenever they want and also if they are able to manage for so many years; why do you think they will have a problem in the future and fix things that aren't broken?
What in the world would cause Nintendo to force Game Freak to let external parties release main games? If they wanted to, shouldn't they give it to parties that are connected to Nintendo?Why hand your money maker to outsiders and not your own people?
1.5 days left for 'the big announcement'
Pleas let it be something really amazing for the wii U
You can do it!

Only time will tell........
Both sides are just noise in the worst way right now, both the people who have started writing what basically amounts to release fanfiction - in your own words, you did write "creative, out-of-the-box, hypothetical possibilities" - and those who think they see things like aligned planets and scripture in logos and have decided based on that.

You are now free to claim that you are a creative person and that you're just being creative, if you must.
Anyway, we need to put this argument to rest. Lets all stop. None of have any say in this. If it happens it happens. Leave it to Nintendo/Game Freak/The Pokemon Company/ Creatures Inc. to decide this. They know whats best. It's a completely useless argument.
Now you are free to continue your business as the know-it-all troll of the forums, if you must.
It's funny how you've chosen to completely misrepresent what I'm saying and then follow it up with a childish insult, and there's no way you're doing it unintentionally, given my choice of words in explaining my end of the discussion. In business, I hear they call that doing two things at once like that "a double whammy", which I'm sure you would know but I wouldn't given your "knowledge and understanding of business" and my "baseless guessing".
This stopped bordering on ridiculous and crossed well over the territory line some time ago. Good bye. If at some point you choose to take a more mature discussion tact, perhaps we can continue this.

Guys stop this nonsense ! Leave It ! We are all here coz we love pokemon ! Not to babble about economics.
I hope this fight stops now.
Okay guys, enough with that.
It's already getting out of hand and is already off topic.
If you both like, please continue your arguments via PM.
Getting back on topic, I just wish it is already January 8th here.
Who is going to be doing the jan 8th announcement ? Masuda I suppose ?
