    No, especially not if it continues to sell as well as Black and White did, Pokemon Black & White Day One Sales Exceed One Million . They probably won't change much about it either, except for piling on more pokemon.

    I want it so I could sell it and become a trillionaire.

    You forgot Pokemon Pinball/Pinball Ruby and sapphire.

    And no, the pokemon will never end since it sells good as shit. GameFreak just think about small new ideas 400 new pokemons and there, a new pokemon game then on purpose miss some features and add that on some expension (Emerald, Crystal, Yellow, Grey etc.)

    I do think so, and not just because of the end of the world. Either bad sales, creator dies, Ninty goes under, or they don't think they can offer anything new.

    Yeah, it was only released in Japan. That's why one of the gba remakes of the Kanto region was called Pokemon LeafGreen.

    ash moisturizes like hell man. we had that whole ash and pokemon discussion at school when we were bored....we were able to chock up that:
    There is no way ash is a virgin cause hes like the biggest player in the world..he just travels town to town and then leaves outta nowhere.
    He has gotten a lovely tan over the past 12 years.
    If evolution was as fast occurring in pokemon as it was here we'd all have transcended into all powerful beings by now or something like doomsday (Superman) would have evolved by now.
    And ashs moisturizing bill must be enormous.
    Dont mind if the anime ends because ash is a one and only, but the game NEVER!!

    Probably when they run out of colours, gems or precious metals... god that's going to take a long time....

    when they run out of normal colours they'll start releasing "Pokemon #FFA07A" and "Pokemon #90EE90"

    Pokemon is the 'mega man' of Nintendo RPGs. It'll just keep getting recycled time and again with no end in sight, and when it starts to look stale they'll make some weird spinoff like megaman got too. There is no death to pokemon, kids will always want to collect, compete and play with their friends (and adults too.)

    + Mobile Games I DON'T feel like counting at the moment. I'm not even sure if there are any "official" ones other than Pokemate.
    Fix'd your slight miscalculation.

    Honest opinion? I'm all for keeping franchises alive, but please, don't force-milk them. Take some time before releasing a new game, Gamefreak. Release a game that FOR ONCE has decent upgrades, not just cosmetic ones.

    Pokewalker came with HG/SS

    Also, thought you might as well put in Pocket Pikachu and Pocket Pikachu 2 GS.

    An afterthought, the first stadium(US) =/= stadium (J).
    The first stadium did not have all 151 pokemon.

    I think there were 4 gba video carts as well.
