successfully predicted stuff from new Pokemon games? I always check around when new main series Pokemon games come out and I've seen plenty of speculation, but never have I seen these conjectures be true.

We've been predicting that gen 6 would come out after Black 2 & White 2 for months if that counts...

Look how much people across the internet believed the Pokemon Rainbow rumour and you'll have your answer.

To the best of my knowledge, no.
Most people seem to guess what they want, rather than what actually seems likely.

The only thing that comes to mind is that someone drew Zoroark from the silhouette that was shown almost identically to how he ended up looking.

Depends what you mean
Plenty of people predicted the names Black and White
A lot of people predicted emboar/pignite (or pignition)
There are so many guesses, some of them have to be right
But has there ever been a consensus that's correct? Probably not.
Currently awaiting: Pikmin 3, Lunar Knights 2, Luigi's Mansion: DM, Animal Crossing 3D, Pokemon XY

I once made a Grass Starter for my "fake" Gen 5 when Gen 4 was coming out, and it was a snake.

Final Evo was a Grass/Steel type based off palm trees and cobras. I even remember the name I gave it: Palmbra. (I was 10 then, OK?)


Anyways, I think it happens, but rarely.

Hmm I see. I know some of the previous speculations were jokes that turned out to be true such as fire/fighting. Though I guess what I mean is more like the triple battle prediction. Big things that are game changing and such.
