    I wonder if they'll move the new game to the DS 2.

    5th Generation Pokemon may be DS2 games.

    Also, isn't the 5th generation games supposed to be released in Japan later this year.

    From what I understand, DSi can do some sort of tilt/motion control.
    If there's news about sending in stuff with tilt function, it might just be for the DSi.

    Just laying down the possibilities...

    Hmmmm...

    Part of my doubts that the 5th Gen will be a DSi, or heaven forbid DS2 exclusive. It just wouldn't be like Nintendo to do something like that, to exclude 1/2+ of the population who still own older models such as the DS Lite or DS Phat.

    People would complain about having to spend 200+ Dollars on a new console just so they could play it. That isn't incredibly good marketing practice, and is more likely to cause people to shun away from the system (Such as when the PS3 was announced to retail for 599 US Dollars)

    Correct. I think it basically senses when the image in the camera moves and it adjusts the game accordingly. It's rather ingenious.

    Anyway, I was thinking that the next Pokemon gen would be on a new console and was flabbergasted when it was said to not be. Maybe they're actually doing it on a new console after all. Either that or they'll make another lousy spin-off game. For fuck's sake, give me the Pokemon TCG updated version, that's like one of the few spin-off games I liked.

    Fucking please for the love of all that is good in gaming, such a crime that we only got one game in English.

    Ok I understand Nintendo needs to make money to fund stuff that may not work out but Pokemon Ranger & Mystery Dungeon are not needed! TCG will fill the much needed gap of a GOOD card on the DS and being very good (if handled well) will help it sell better then the mehness of the other spin offs.

    So if 5th gen is coming out in 2010, and 5th gen is going to be for DS2, then that means DS2 is also coming out in 2010. [​IMG]
    I highly doubt it though, or they would have mentioned it in their investor relations portfolio.

    Serebii's information on the new games came right from the blog of the head of the pokemon team (whatever his name is), with a blog post about a future announcement, then the japanese pokemon site giving an announcement, then him blogging again that the announcement went fine...

    And it was said 5th generation will be on DS.

    That makes sense.

    Pokemon releases seem to follow a trend.

    GB
    Pokemon R/G/B/Y (gen 1)
    Pokemon G/S/C (gen 2)

    GBA
    Pokemon S/R/E (gen 3)
    Pokemon R/G/B remake (no Y remake)

    DS
    Pokemon D/P/P (gen 4)
    Pokemon S/G remake (no C remake)

    New
    Pokemon ?/?/? (gen 5)
    Pokemon S/R remake (no E remake)

    Gold and Silver was GBC games which were backward compatible with GB. Crystal was on the other hand a Color exclusive.
    I actually expected Sould Silver and Hearth Gold to be dsi enhanced.

    Sapphire and Ruby will definitely not get a remake anytime soon. The Gold and Silver remakes were due to popular demand.

    ok....don't hate me for this but i refuse to believe this rumour....
    i don't like the whole pokemon deal. way to generic each game. though their roleplay is great.
    it's just. pokemon and a DS2 ? i wonder how logical it is for a Nintendo product not to be for Nintendo Employment [​IMG]
