You saw the title. Nintendo has committed the inevitable act of creating Generation 6 of Pokemon...or at least they've started working on it and are going to be releasing it relatively soon. For those of you that haven't seen the news this Nintendo Direct video explains what's going on, along with a nice history of the previous games of the past for the first like 8 minutes.

So, what do you guys think? Does the new game look like it'll be a good new take on the games? Does it look too much like the old ones? Does it look not enough like the old ones? What are your opinions on generation 6 in general?

Personally, I like the 3D aspect of it, along with the improved graphics of the 3DS. It looks to me like they started designing some the characters around the newer graphics rather than creating the Pokemon and other features and later putting them into the game and creating the Black and White fiasco of (in my opinion) over-pixelization for how new the game is. I also like the X version legendary. Looks nice and normal-shaped, with a touch of the Pokemon fantasy style that Pokemon fans have grown to be unable to tear away from despite ice cream becoming Pokemon.

Anyway, enough of me ranting about where Pokemon has gone in the past, like I said before, what do you guys think?

Erm... No. Pokerus is temporary,


actually if you put a pokemon with it in a box it lasts forever and you can give it to all your pokemon. pokerus is even more rare then shiny pokemon too.

Maybe I'm thinking of something else, but isn't Pokerus the thing that pokemon migrated over to Gen 4+ from earlier games have? If so, that's very, very easy to get. Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong thing, though.

True, but no one would actually buy it... A shiny would worth more. Its better to keep it for yourself and continue to spread the virus to your party. It doubles the EV gain your Pokemon.

So in short, Pokerus isn't as valuable as Shinies because you can spread the virus throughout the team, whereas Shinies are once and only once.

If you have black/white, I would be happy to battle you for the pokerus... haha

Sorry, but these games are going to be coming out on the 3DS, so they're not gonna be backwards compatible with the DS and similar handhelds. 3DS prices it looks like are *checks to make sure you're in the US* at about $170, probably gonna get knocked down again by the time Pokemon comes out.
