I think we'll get Z/X2Y2 or whatever the 3rd Kalos game is sometime around the movie next year since Zygarde seems to have a role in next year's movie. I also think that that sketch may be a gen. 7 Pokemon, but I don't think we'll be getting gen. 7 until the beginning of 2017 at the earliest. Also isn't there going to be a new Nintendo console being developed? Maybe the next gen. Games will be released on those instead of the 3ds.

I am sorry but I am not convinced by any of this. To me, there is evidence against another gen 6 game and I am not taking people's word for it just because they say. Until it is posted on Serebii site, the chances of another gen 6 game is less than 5%. XY were the best of the gen 6 games and I gave it 9/10 while ORAS did not do so well and I gave it 6/10. ORAS got a lower rating for lack of Emerald elements, Battle Frontier not available but teased, too many legends and starters. If they had saved some pokemon for later, I would not be going on about no more gen 6 but because they jammed the rest of the pokemon into ORAS, it has made another gen 6 game pointless in my view.
Some days I wish I still had something.. I personally believe that Game Freak is working on the Next Pokémon game. Will it be a Gen 6 or Gen 7: That I don't want to guess, I'll be playing it either way.
Some info and math from Release dates. It's been almost 650 days since Gen 6 was started. The shortest time for a Generation was Gen 1.... in the US for 748 days. But counting Japanese releases, given the world wide release of the last two games, Gen 2 was the shortest in Japan, with Gen 5 bring up second. Gen 5 was considered short partly as it just broke 1100 days, and Gens 3 and 4 where almost another year longer.

Anywho, the US is finally getting an event that doesn't involve Gamestop (Diancie event July 24th-27th). Thank god. Can't wait to download. Now we just need more mythics released… On that note, we're getting Diancie for the second time, but still none of the others.

Lol, this is very exciting news for me as I never had a Diancie before.
RE: Training on Route 111
No one is saying you can't have that opinion, they're trying to make you see why your opinion doesn't make much sense.
I can't see them rushing to gen 7 when gen 6 is doing really really good. We're still about halfway through gen 6 (volcanion + AZ's floette dstribution next year?) and now GF/TPCI/whoever responsible have one more thing in mind when making a new game, pokemon vgc. That alone is enough reason to release another gen 6 game with new megas. And guess what, people will buy them to compete in vgc. IMO, 1-2 more vgc seasons in gen 6 then we can expect gen 7.
Like I said before, gen 6 is doing good now, it's pushing the device's capability to the fullest at certain points. What good will come from making a new gen utilizing the exact same hardware (if you don't count NEW 3DS), the same question I have when they release gen 5 for the DS. If they indeed release gen 7 next year for the 20th anniversary, it will seem like Nintendo are pushing them to make cash since they're in the red for at least 3 out of the past 4 years. Furthermore, making a new gen means making more mons. If they continue this trend of adding 50-100 new mons every 3 years, they'll shorten the lifespan of the franchise. "Too many Pokemon, 7.8/10" will be a thing.
The size of the bestiary has nothing to do with the shelf life of the franchise. The franchise is built on "new monsters every generation!" 200 wasn't a problem. 500 wasn't a problem. When we get to 1000 sometime in Generation VIII or XI it won't be a problem then either.
50-100 + megas every 4-5 years seems reasonable.
150-200 + megas every 2-3 years sounds desperate
My point is not mainly about the number, but how long until we reach the number itself.
