How did a new gen happen in 2 years? It was always 4-5 years.

Because they needed something big to transfer over pokemon to a new system. A remake wouldn't cut it.

Actually B/W came out in Japan in 2010. That makes it three years which is the same time frame from Gen 1 to Gen 2 in Japan 96-99.

And the same time frame between gens 2 and 3.

Actually, the longest gen was only exactly 4 years (4th gen). Where on earth did you get 4-5 years from, much less the "always"? Furthermore, the first gen was only 2 years in the USA.

Gen 1 -> 2 = 3 years, 9 months
Gen 2 -> 3 = 3 years
Gen 3 -> 4 = 3 years, 11 months
Gen 4 -> 5 = 4 years
Gen 5 -> 6 = 3 years, 1 month

2-3-4-4-2 Heh, guess for me the time just passed really fast from 5th gen.
#8HylianCyndaquilPosted 1/9/2013 12:29:10 AM
Generation 2 was shorter I believe.

^ that's a consequence of aging. When you're young, time seems to take forever. When you're older, time seems to fly.

It seemed like it took me forever to get through high school. Now it seems like I was yesterday and it's been 5 years.

It might've just seemed faster because of B2/W2. And I would imagine the fact that Ninty really needs to market the 3DS & get better sales could've had something to do with it.


In fact I wouldn't be surprised at all if they only add around 100 new Pokemon as the other 600 already have 3D models thanks to the Pokedex 3D Pro/PBR/etc. That'd leave them a bit of time to work on the other aspects, like the overworld and story/features & whatnot.
