It would be a nice change of pace to see the starters on the box, like the old days.
Maybe it is because I am older, but if I hear the announcement a few hours later than everyone else no big deal.
I don't really stand a chance of it being spoiled either, unless I log in here first and then look at the announcement. Don't you kids nowadays have iPhones or phones capable of surfing the internet?
I don't know how it works nowadays.
I do agree that this Gen seemed to come too fast. DPP/HGSS lasted 4 years here in the states (2007-2011), but this Gen will have only been 2 years (2011-2013) IF indeed the announcement is a new Gen.
