Yes. While Japan indeed has 3 years between BW and XY, they also wrapped Gen V up already. It was done in 2 years, there's just this huge gap filled only by the Genesect movie.
2012 sped through everything and we've gotten a new main game *every year* for a few years in a row and got all 3 bonus legendaries in the SAME year.
We also got 4 spin-offs, 3 apps and 2 educational/learning games in that short time period. It was blown through. It was obvious this was happening even in mid 2012.
It also did not get a Stadium/Colosseum type game or a Pokemon Ranger title. --- ~ I'm Always Fighting the Gravity ~ 360: MoldyClay87 ;; 3DS: 3050-8737-8491

The fact that Gen V was purposefully being rushed in 2012 was the reason many began suspecting the Gen VI was coming. Look at all the signs in 2012:
- Keldeo, Meloetta, AND Genesect were all released in Japan. - Meloetta doesn't get a movie; relegated to short in Keldeo film and recurring anime role. - Ash obtaining badges in Unova at an unprecedented pace. - Related to above, the Unova League starting and ending so soon.
They wouldn't be throwing away so many possibilities to extend the generation to four years unless they were trying to get it out of the way as soon as possible.
Yeah, but the anime could of done another arc similar to the Battle Frontier. --- Gardenia Month! http://i.imgur.com/2UK2Z.jpg http://i.imgur.com/3fBl5.jpg http://i.imgur.com/msXxq.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Clq47.jpg
