For the past pokemon games they waited 4 years between generations but this time it is only 3. I wonder why they decided to change it.

They probably wanted to get a 3DS game out there ASAP...plus, it's still 9 months away, so it's almost 4 years...

Because they stupidly released gen 5 on DS shortly before the 3DS came out.

Because Nintendo wasn't going to let Game Freak get this far without bringing Pokemon to the 3DS

Why wait another year to make money?

Partly kidding.

Who knows? They have been making all sorts of pattern breaking decisions lately. It is refreshing.
I left myself logged in on my friend's CPU and he changed my sig to this ^_^;

Black and White were released in Japan in Fall/Winter 2010. By October it will be 3 years.

But yeah, they really wanted to increase the marketability of the 3DS, I'd assume. I know many people, including me, were refusing to buy it until it got a main series Pokemon game in its library.

Second gen was three years to the day; fifth will be about a month longer.

You're just comparing it to the two gens that had remakes in them. Fifth gen, like the first and second, did not.
