This poll is now closed.
We all know everything's destined to die, including Pokemon. Who knows where it might be ten-twenty years from now?

So to keep things fresh and perhaps innovative, it's possible Gamefreak could develop another creature-themed game series with different aspects, such as creatures used, the battle system, and development/language. Making a new game series gives Gamefreak developers a chance to play outside the usual formula limits that the regular Pokemon series imposes (evil teams, limited storytelling, etc.).

Since the possibility of this exists, would you agree with this development? Reasons why would be great too, since I'm legitimately curious about this. The variation in the poll is a matter of timing.

No. Everyone would just think its a Pokemon wannabe and if you already have the best catch and train monster game in existence, why would you want to make another?

This.

Although don't get me wrong, I like more options, but Pokemon would outcompetition Game Freaks new idea, and that wouldn't be promising for a series to live.

So far out of nine votes, we got 2 total "yes's," and seven total "no's." Hahahaha, interesting. Didn't think it'd be so one-sided so fast. Continue on, by all means.

GameFreak needs to make a sequel to Drill Dozer.

I don't think it would be good for Game Freak to make another monster game. It would inevitably end up hurting Pokemon more than helping it. Any creativity they may have with the new series might take away from making Pokemon any good.

If another company wants to try it out, sure, but not Game Freak.

Yes. Yes, they do.

I say NO to both options....

Reasons:

1) if they made a game while pokemon is ongoing, they will have to divert less time into pokemon which can do a multitude of options:
A) longer wait times for a game to be released.
B) have to "short" the story/plot to make deadlines.
C) game can turn up "weak" and have a broad negitive appeal over time.
D) etc....

2) if pokemon quit, and another game was starting, it would cause the multitiudes of the following:
A) people would compare the mechanics of pokemon to ______, and thus making an assumption of whether or not to buy, or other sceraios.
B) declare it a pokemon "spin-off", based off of other identical machanics pokemon has/had during its generation. Thus rasing down appeal to the game which will obviously hit GF's bottomline harshly.
C) people get pissed off at gamefreak for even considering "replacing" pokemon with something else, which would lose many loyal customers and future customers, and lead to negitive reviews by locals thus making it harder to sell games to the general public due to "bad reputation" or other sorts of means.
D) etc....

GF will probably never consider it, at least for a LONG time, because they wouldn't spoil a big fanbase, or THE biggest fanbase they currently have.

But, if they do decide to, they better prioritize pokemon because any company you know, you can ask them "what matters the most?", and it will always be one answer, the bottom-line. Most likely if they take this initiative, they will most likely hire workers/3rd parties to build the game for GameFreak.

They could make a pokemon spinoff series with objects as pokemon instead of animals. That would be interesting. The starters could be a fire hydrant, a microwave, and a small home plant.
