Pokemon X/Y rumored to be the final Pokemon game?

Seriously makes me wonder how many pokemon there will be by the time the series ends.. 1000... 2000?

There are a few reasons for a franchise to stop:

1 - Sales. Obviously, if a franchise costs more money to maintain than to retire, it's going to end. Pokemon is still Nintendo's best selling franchise, IIRC.

2 -It already had a proper ending. Yeah, Pokemon doesn't really rely on story too heavily and it doesn't have much of a continuity or mythology either.

3 - It was heavily dependent on some other factor, such as a lead designer or director. Nope, Pokemon was never so deep an experience that it needed any particular person's vision to be successful.

So yeah, there's literally no sound reason, whether it be business or on artistic merit, for Pokemon to stop. >_<

It will be the last game due to the looming bankruptcy that awaits them.
