Chances of Nintendo eliminating backwards compatibility with older games?

If they'd rather cut off compatibility than convert older Pokémon to an improved system, then I hope they make them incompatible.

I really don't want them to keep IVs just because gen 3-5 Pokémon have them.

Really? Why do you guys think that way? Not trying to troll, just curious.

It's obviously a new gen, so don't expect to battle or trade with these DS games.

but if they eliminated a transfer mechanic that brought pokes from Gen V to Gen VI, I don't think that would boil over too well.
Way too many cherished pokes by trainers alike, plus, so many legendaries and individual pokes would be unnattainable. Gen I thru Gen V to be specific. I'm actually pretty proud of my Mewtwo from Leafgreen version. It's in my Pokemon White PC. It's already come with me this far, why not a bit further?

I honestly wouldn't mind. Kinda wanna be forced to start completely anew. I won't mind the backward compatibility still existing either

I don't keep most of my Pokemon anyway. Just the shinies and events. That said, if they sever me from my shinies, I will be most displeased.

It won't be eliminated. It might be covoluted, and I dare say they may actually wait and implement back trading with older games via a patch (lel3DS)... but it'll be there.

This is more intense than that time I forgot how to DO A BARREL ROLL!
Then I remembered to press Z or R twice.

Because they have no reason to. That would only piss people off that already collected 600+ Pokemon. They only did it with Ruby/Sapphire because of hardware limitations.
