    And even if that's the case, a new gen 6 game could easily be made in that period.
    Honestly, I could actually see them adding new Pokemon for Z (or XY2) version. After all, ORAS added new Megas. Which I guess could count as new Pokemon :-)

    New Zygarde forme was teased, obviously has nothing to do with the current gen but rather the next.

    Makes a lot of sense right?...

    Isn't that just speculation though? To be completely honest, I don't see how it could be a new Zygarde form.
    That's just me though ☺

    Green, glowing hexagons imply it is related to Zygarde.

    I HAVE DIANCIE, POKEBANK CELEBI, AND SOME SHINIES FOR TRADE.

    THE LIST MAY BE UPDATED FROM TIME TO TIME.

    OptimusZygarde's post from the previous page does a great job of explaining why it's not just speculation to think the large silhouette is a new forme of Zygarde. The most relevant portion is this:

Cue the CoroCoro silhouette we've seen... reports of green pulsating hexagons on its body from movie viewers is almost one of the final nails in the coffin for that one.

    I see Zygarde's new form changing type or something. I know about the Thousand attacks, but it being the trio master yet both of its "underlings" have an immunity to it just doesn't sit well. Something will probably give.

    Have to agree with this, it's hard to keep the balance when you're weaker then both of the opposing forces. Aura break is a good start but it needs something... not what the have planned but they've fixed tons of pokemons mistakes with megas/forms so I think it's gonna be a good upgrade.

    Also I've been thinking... both diancie and hoopa have alternate forms, I wonder if they have something planned for volcanion too

    Had ANOTHER thought, I would expect Zygarde to have a primal reversion if anything, considering it basically states it watches over the ecosystem it would make sense to get power from it as well. But Groudon and Kyogres primal forms don't have any major changes while the speculated Zygarde form looks drastically different, I wonder what they have planned

    That small green blob with the red stomach might end up being a brand new type... Virus type perhaps?

    There's nothing that suggests it's going to end up being "a brand new type."

    I'm hoping that it gets an ability that reverses type matchups. I mean think about it. Its current ability reverses their abilities, and they are immune to its types. What if Tha was swapped? Also- Zygarde is found on the same route as the inverse battle house.

    As much sense as this makes, it would render Thousand Arrows--which already makes Yveltal susceptible as it is--rather redundant.

    I agree. I just don't know how to feel about the typing thing. With Rayquaza over the others, it didn't matter. Nor did it matter with Landorus or Arceus. Lugia is actually the only one I can think of who is weak to its trios moves, at least 2/3. Maybe they'll give Zygarde a new ability like Delta Stream that weakens SE hits.

    Even assuming that it's a new species from Gen 7, I personally don't think it'll have a whole new type. The blobs kinda look like ghosts to me, so maybe they'll be Ghost-types imo.

    We should be getting some sort of news on Gen 7 sometime later this year. Seeing as how the X and Y series is ending next year and all. Here's hoping it'll be a good/better game than 6th Gen.

    Assuming that "Z Version" comes out fall of 2016, as that's the time frame games normally come from and it won't be fall of this year almost for sure, and it is the final game of gen six, we won't get any actual news about seventh gen until early 2017 at best, as they don't start marketing the next games until several months after the previous. The best you can hope for is an early reveal of a new Pokemon, but that is unlikely considering recent trends in which new Pokemon are not shown until several months before the next generation comes out.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program and technology. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, with friends new and old.
    Check it out!

    It I recall correctly, Platinum and BW2 didn't cover much during pre-release. I personally can't really see Gamefreak waiting until early 2016 to reveal the next game(s) and wait until Fall 2016 to release it. I'm not saying it's some pattern but I don't really expect seven-eight months of pre-release coverage.

    In my opinion, I doubt they would just leave us with a teaser like this for five-six months. While a Worlds reveal would be awesome, I personally can see the new installment(s) being revealed around September or October at the latest.

    In both cases there was only a four month window between their reveal and Japanese release, to be fair.

    I swear I'm gonna end up saying this all week lol, gen 6 still has about 2 years left on it. The third game or sequels/prequels have already been teased.

    Gen 7 comes later down the road.

    Remember that mid gen games introduce Mega Evolutions now, meaning that there's more news to cover than there used to be. XY and ORAS had 9 and 6 months of coverage respectively, so a 6 or 7 month news cycle wouldn't be out of the question. Also, 6 months from August would put us in February, which is the same month as the 20th anniversary.

    IMO, Gen 7 Won't release until Nintendo's next generation of consoles, which won't be until after 2017.

    Does anyone else think Kanto will be involved with next year's game? I just have this feeling that Kanto will somehow be connected to next year's game to coincide with Pokemon's anniversary. Perhaps certain story elements will allude to the Kanto region.

    In what way? We already got this in a fashion with the Snorlax and Poke Flute and the new Unknown Cave Dungeon, unless I'm misunderstanding you.

    6 million units is great for a game... Just maybe not for a Pokemon game? Anyways, Emerald is,Pokemon-wise, more of a cult classic. As much as I wanted the Frontier, probably not even a third of the people who picked up ORAS have even touched or maybe even heard of it. So, perhaps for Game Freak, it just was not worth it financially or physically. But, who knows? Perhaps they're just trying to pull the carpet over our eyes and surprise us with it or something even better in the next games? One can dream.

    just in case y'all wasn't aware, NX is set to be a 2016 release; Cosecant and Secant or whatever they're called will likely be the swan songs on 3DS

    we know this because:

    - Back in 2014, Iwata claimed he'd need two years to redefine what constitutes a gaming platform

    - Last year, Iwata mentioned that "Nintendo-like profits" in the fiscal year ending March 2017 would prove that their video game business is robust

    - AMD has a game console contract for 2016 (probably Nintendo)

    I realize that people on this forum treat Nintendo handhelds as $200 Pokemon machines, but the 3DS will actually be five years old in 2016, not three; unlike its predecessor, it's had nowhere near as much market penetration to be able to sustain itself for much longer than the typical hardware cycle (compare ~50 million install base to ~150 million)

    oh, boy, I hope so!

    if there's one department that X and Y were lacking in, it's pointless Gen I callbacks

    I highly doubt this new Pokemon will be of a new type.

    Doesn't GameFreak only add new types for balance reasons?
