For the past pokemon games they waited 4 years between generations but this time it is only 3. I wonder why they decided to change it.

They probably wanted to get a 3DS game out there ASAP...plus, it's still 9 months away, so it's almost 4 years... --- PSN=Gelthidor

Because they stupidly released gen 5 on DS shortly before the 3DS came out. --- http://i47.tinypic.com/2me5xv.jpg

Because Nintendo wasn't going to let Game Freak get this far without bringing Pokemon to the 3DS --- I draw nekkid chicks! O: http://i40.tinypic.com/rucjkh.jpg Roxie <3

Why wait another year to make money?
Who knows? They have been making all sorts of pattern breaking decisions lately. It is refreshing. --- I left myself logged in on my friend's CPU and he changed my sig to this ^_^;

Black and White were released in Japan in Fall/Winter 2010. By October it will be 3 years.
But yeah, they really wanted to increase the marketability of the 3DS, I'd assume. I know many people, including me, were refusing to buy it until it got a main series Pokemon game in its library. --- Official Chespin of the Pokemon X boards.

Second gen was three years to the day; fifth will be about a month longer.
You're just comparing it to the two gens that had remakes in them. Fifth gen, like the first and second, did not. --- Creator of Jay's Journey (see quote!) "It's not ten years old! Therefore, it sucks!" - Nostalgia whores everywhere
