    A Spanish website interviewed folks from GameFreak at a Pokemon Black and White event in London. They asked the team if there would be a Pokemon Grey coming to the Nintendo 3DS, to which GameFreak replied: “Not at all. With B&W, we have concluded this iteration”. It turns out that there won't be a third Pokemon game (Crystal, Emerald, etc.) coming out for Generation V.[/p]

    I'm actually glad. That means the next Pokemon game coming out for the 3DS will be for Gen VI.

    Edit:
    Serebii has commented on this.
    I wasn't going to report on this nor do I like commenting on rumours, but it seems to be spreading fast so I need to calm it. Earlier today, an interview was posted taken with GameFreak employees at Nintendo this past week. In this interview, the question regarding the future games was asked. Naturally, they said there are no plans at the moment for future games, thus concluding the marketing strategy for the current release; Black & White. However, many have taken this to mean that the games are not coming in the future which is definitely not the case considering the fifth generation is just beginning.[/p]
    Turns out this doesn't really mean anything.

    that makes no sense at all.
    Where else could they explain to us wtf Kyurem is?
    I mean, it's obviously made to get a better alternate form, and 2 powerful ice attacks (140) one physical and paralysing, the otehr special and burning (which is another hint to it's relation to the other 2 dragons). These are in the game, just no one can learn them.

    Does this actually impact the theory that B/W has "3DS enhancement" built in them?

    They probably have something else in place of the "third" game I bet

    Actually, that was a screw-up by IGN.
    IGN retracted their statements recently.

    But like Emerald and Platinum before them, I thnk they need to do this.
    Black/White are great but there's things the game needs fixing, like the total lack of vs. seeker or in-game berry growing.

    Keep in mind I'm getting the black version for the core reason that you CAN rematch trainers in Black City.

    Not all hope is lost.
    It is a relatively unknownI think Spanish site that's stating this. They could have pulled this out of their arse, for all I know. For all we know, they might have asked some PR person who doesn't know anything instead of GameFreak developers.

    What? No Pokemon Rainbow?

    Given that the 3DS is out next month, maybe they just want to get right to the next gen versions. But I doubt that they'll just do these two versions and be done with it.

    Yes
    This.
    Also, I remember how a site published info about how Junichi Masuda said that N's name was hinted in Black and White, but it was gonna be revealed in a "next installement" or something along those lines. As N is a main character in B&W, wouldn't it make more sense if his name was revealed in a third installement of the same sagas? Pretty weird. I want a Grey version, so I hope this "No 3rd gen V" thing gets busted ):

    Maybe they mean 3rd release for the DS.

    Maybe Pokemon Gray will come out for the 3DS. Who knows?

    Poor, poor Kyurem, lol.
    But this is good news since it means they're focusing their efforts on Gen 6.

    N or maybe just Team Plasma may be in the sixth generation since the second generation had the same enemies as the first except they were remnants of Team Rocket who were awaiting Giovanni's return but during the Radio Tower raid if you finished the event in HG/SS he committed suicide after you beat him, maybe he'll be in Gen VI but only unlocked by an event.
