Gen 6 announced too early?

I say this Gen is close to Gen 5 because it's 20 years of Pokemon in 2016,
they're probably having Gen 7 for then and don't want to rush it, a 5 year wait for a new gen wouldn't be fun.

If by that, you mean that Game Freak just wanted to get Pokemon on the 3DS as soon as possible then yeah.

Relative to the release of the 3DS, it's actually a little late. In any case, there were various signs that Gen 5 was going to end earlier than Gen 3 and 4, including:

- Keldeo, Meloetta, AND Genesect were all released in Japan last year.
- Meloetta didn't get a movie, instead given a movie short and a small anime role.
- Ash obtained his badges in Unova at an extremely brisk pace.
- The Unova League in the anime took place this past month.

If they really wanted Gen 5 to last four years, they wouldn't have essentially put everything on fast-forward to get it out of the way. They wanted 2013 to be clear for Gen 6.

By the time these games are released, it will have been over three years since Black and White were released.

I don't believe it's too early for generation 6, just unexpected considering that all Black 2/White 2 really did for me was wrap up generation 5's story which did start it's story (at least in Japan) at the expected average generation cycle.

It only seems too soon for those of us in other countries, because we are used to the localisation delay which they are making an effort to avoid this time around.

I: honestly think black and white was to get us by until the 3ds picked up. Take some time, maybe put some effort into it, and come up with the perfect pokemon game. >.>;
