I'm pretty sure that pokemon will extend way after my life is over.
I'm fine with it ending soon
They should at least take it to the double digits or 1000 pokemon
Never, the series should continue forever
I'm fine with a few new gens and some spin-offs and remakes
I'm pretty sure that pokemon will extend way after my life is over.
All well and good, but Game Freak does their job with the many people working for it with them. If there was a close second, Hal Laboratories started the first 3d games, gave Manaphy a back story, and when Sakurai worked there, they got to put Pokemon in a hodge podge known as Smash Bros. However, we know how busy Hal Laboratories get, and even they are not as capable with the Pokemon franchise as Game Freak.What I meant surpassed the main series, is that the spin offs are better in other certain categories. Let me give a sample from personal experience.
Before Black and White blew my mind in the story category, character category, and Music category, PMD Explorers was the deepest plot when it comes to story.
Another nice example is Pokemon Battle revolution. Before we even encountered the 6th Generation trailer 8 days ago or the 2 Pokedex 3Ds, this Spin off was the best in graphics and animation 5-6 years ago despite being a bad spin off.

Being one of the biggest money-makers for Gamefreak and Nintendo, they would have to be crazy to end it anytime soon.

Pokémon will simply not end until it is not making a profit, which I can safely say will not be until long.

It will end when they stop making money. That might not happen for at least 10-20 years
Pokemon Black 2 Team:
the thought of pokemon ever ending makes me sad.
I personally would be happy with 2,000+ pokemon. The more the merrier!
I'm pretty sure Pokemon wont ever end....like EVAR! or at least not in my lifetime or as long as im interested in it. I mean do u see Mario or Zelda ever ending? i don't think so....
There's even an article about how http://gengame.net/2012/10/pokemon-d...-out-of-ideas/
But that isnt the answer u want is it?
Well if Pokemon was ever came to an end i would want them to make Ash and all of his old partners remembering what they've been through including Misty, Dawn, Brock, Tracy, May, Max, Ash's Mom, all the people he's ever met in Pokemon Movies such as Bianca from Pokemon Heroes and Latias and all of them in a special Multi-Part Episode in which he revisits every region. Maybe even ending in a funeral for pikachu and Ash finally growing up. Or maybe thats too dark?
In the video games i want them ti make Pokemon Rainbow or whatever they name a video game in which you get to go to every region EVAR incuding Orange Islands and the unseen towns that are seen in Pokemon Movies.
Thats just my opinion

I have calmed down my addiction for Ugly Betty. Yay-ish. I had to get addicted to another show....
I AM NOW ADDICTED TO DEGRASSI!
WHATEVER IT TAKES!!!! =P
THAT IS ALL FOR NOW
It is unlikely that Pokemon will end soon though in an interview with Game Freak, they originally planned to end the series after Generation II. And look at the most successful Nintendo Series, Mario. It has been going strong for 25+ years. Pokemon is a major cash cow for Nintendo and they will end it once it is no longer profitable. If I had to take a guess though, Pokemon will start to decline late 7th Generation and fully end 8th Generation. Also I think they will make a ''9th'' Generation but, all it will be is remakes of previous games for the Nintendo 9001DS. That is all.

Like lots of people above, I think pokemon will not end until it is keeping up the cash flow for Nintendo. But it dosen't mean that will be fun forever. The challenge of create a well balanced game with 1000 or 1500 pokemon is a daunt one, hope Game Freak will stand for it.
Probably until handheld gaming devices are no longer in fashion. Or when we all grow out of it (can't really see that happening but shush) and the kids of the future wanted more violent video games. Or when Pokemon just stops making money.
I have chosen!
I really don't see Pokemon going away any time soon... However, if it were to for some reason stop, I would expect them to get to at LEAST gen X, but probably more, as it doesnt seem to be slowing down.
1) As long as they've got ideas for pokemon, they'll just keep on spitting them out... and their ideas just dont seem to be wavering at all. Although I really do wonder how much longer they can keep those creative juices flowing... I mean, i know they have a whole company doing it, but still....
2) Pokemon has always been among Nintendo's top sources of profit (next to Mario and Zelda)... so as long as they keep making money, they'll just keep on making the little critters
Even if Pokemon were to end, the legacy would very much live on in the anime (whether its replays or only the anime continued), as well as the games that they've made
I really doubt when pokemon will end, but it will be a long time when Ash becomes the champion.. Also I really want one episode that ash discovers his father.
Lucario: Master of Aura...... and Chocolate!
Didn't one of the employees say that they would keep it going until it didn't make money anymore? I think it's going to be around for a long while.
Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.
