    My money's on the theory that Game Freak has officially created artificially-made, real life pokemon and is about to reveal them to the world.

    Poorly handled? I thought they did pretty good, though Rainbow Version would definitely be a hot mess :P

    Johto is less expansive than other regions, and Kanto is but a husk of its formal self. A lot was sacrificed to get two regions onto that GameBoy cart.

    Well I think they did a better job with HG/SS at least

    There's no way that they would be able to fit all four generations on a single cartridge. At best they would have to do something like gen 1&2 on one cartridge (which is pointless cos we've already got HGSS for that) and then gen 3&4 on another cartridge (which is also pointless cos gen 4 isn't that old).

    Yes, they certainly did improve it, and storage space of today's handhelds does make the idea at least possible. But creating such a huge game would be a nightmare.

    It is possible from a technical standpoint, but again, nightmare to actually conceive.

    Hopefully the new region is large in size. Not necessarily the size of four put together, but I really want a lot to explore. Routes that lead off to different trails that lead to different places. One of the things I hage about the Pokemon games is that it takes seconds to get down a route. With a few repels and a bike, you can get through a region pretty quickly. So I want it to take a few minutes to get from place to place. Also, I want tons of post-E4 locations to explore.

    It is clearly looking more and more like it is going to be a 3DS game why make all this fuss about a DS game and its not like Gamefreak didnt give people time to upgrade to a DS, its been out for like three years now, Masuda himself said it is time for pokemon to "evolve" , in other words time for a change

    But think about all the programing that would take! and not to mention that it won't just be a little tweak here and a little tweak there -they would have to update everything epecially RS where graphics is concerned.

    Pokemon is a linear RPG, don't expect much in the way of branching paths.

    I know, and that's why I'm saying it's a nightmare. They're not limited by the hardware any more, like they were with the GameBoy, they're merely limited by the sheer amount of work it would take to create it.

    Why the heck would anyone believe that a game with 4 regions in it would even be announced THIS early. It would take more than a year of development. And the idea of how people acually believe this when there is no source specified what so ever. No.... just no....

    Whatever game they're going to be announcing has been in development for at least a few years. It's not like they announce a game and then start making it.

    We don't know how long they've been working on these games, though.

    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    What if instead of one game with four regions, it's a boxed set of updated Gen I-IV Pokemon games?
    It doesn't seem likely even to me, but it also is getting so much hype that I doubt it's just the next game in the series.


    One things for sure though, they're going to try to sell us something.

    Well, if something as expansive as Skyrim is like 5X larger than the main Pokemon games and it's all fit into one average disc, who knows the limits of what one could fit onto a DS or 3DS cartridge? I'm pretty sure in an open-world game like Skyrim, the possibilities of things far surpass the amounts of combinations of moves and pokemon and items in Pokemon's metagame, so who is really to judge unless you don't know the specs in complete detail to the very chips and boards? Also look at Halo 4, which pulled off stunning graphical design that hasn't even been known to exist on the Xbox 360 until recently in it's soon-to-be dying days. So don't throw something out of the water without giving it some thought.

    Yeah, but Pokemon Rainbow is just... it's got to be the saddest excuse of a rumor, acually, the Pokemon Wii U idea was even worse

    Yes, if it's released digitally then it is essentially an 'app'. With a digital release it should be able to read whatever is in the gamecard slot, but I'm not completely sure about that. That could be a technical limitation, the system would never really need to be able to read from itself twice, if you know what I mean.

    If you think about the normal use case, the system has a game card in the slot, so it wouldn't make sense to develop the ability to then read anything other than that game from the slot. It all depends on how far they've thought a head, and whether it was worth it to create functionality for just one game.

    As we've already established, it is technically possible to create a game with all four regions, there is plenty of space to do it. Actually taking the development time to do it probably isn't worth it though.

    I'm not saying that, like, there's a fork in the road and both lead to different gyms. I mean, one leads to a gym and the other leads somewhere else. You can go left and go to a forest or a smaller town or go right and go to the city that has a gym. That way you don't have to go straight to the gym. You can go explore first.

    iirc the storage space on a 3DS cart is roughly equal to that of a PS2 disc.

    Well, you won't know whether or not it's worth it until it happens. And what does it mean to be worth it? If it's totally possible, but needs a good team to do it, then that's that. And a couple hundred thousand people can't decide what something's worth. They can decide what it's worth to them, but just because it's worth nothing to them, doesn't mean that's the case with someone else. But anyways, I'm guess I'm going a little offtopic with this little preaching XD, as for the announcement, I've already said many times on what the possibilities are, but in the end, I know it must be something important. I can't say what it is exactly, nor can I say it's something that people will find of worth, all I know is, for it to be this overly hyped, it's important to those who made Pokemon.

    Especially when they could just make four separate games with Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh and sell them for $40 each, making about $160 per person, assuming they buy all four. Putting them all in one game just isn't very profitable.

    If this is Gen VI what type of Pokemon are you all hoping for? I'd like a Pokemon based on a lion, and is Fire or Normal type.
