Why does anyone think we're getting the starter evolutions?

Gen V: We didn't (legit) get the starter evolutions until 3 days before the launch of the game
Gen IV: We never got the starter evos
Gen III: Blaziken was revealed before the starters, but as far as I can tell, wasn't stated to be an evo of torchic until after the games came out (Serebii's 2002 archives are not great)
I don't dare search for gen II

So why are people expecting them anytime before October? It's ridiculous.

Whoa, being hyped for a game != being ridiculous, lol. People are just really excited, chill.

I didn't say being hyped for a game was being ridiculous. I said expecting starter evolutions anytime even remotely soon is ridiculous.

How was Blaziken actually revealed? I just remember seeing it through the anime, which IMO is probably the coolest way to reveal something.

As far as I can tell, it's first appearance was in the anime, but it was announced to be in the anime beforehand, it wasn't a surprise when it happened.

I see. I guess CoroCoro have to sell their magazines and Smash (or early 2000s equivalent) has to sell their news segment to their audience.

I keep asking the same question, TC, and have yet to get a satisfactory answer.
