    it isnt a yearly thing each sub series is different

      How so? A Pokemon RPG has released every year since 2009, for five years straight. I’m not talking about spin-offs like Rumble Blast, Typing Adventure, etc.

        black white 2, and this. If anything its 2 back to back years. Thats it.

          I already pointed this out in the post above but here it is: Pokemon Platinum released in North America March 2009, Pokemon HeartGold/Soul Silver released in Spring 2010 in America as well. Pokemon Black/White March 2011, Pokemon Black2/White2 October 2012, and now Pokemon X/Y October 2013.

          Yes, it has been five years in a row.

          Actually it is almost like Apple’s yearly iPhone models, how there was normally 12 months between versions and then suddenly (like with the iPhone 4S) there was a few months added onto it for Black and White 2.

          But none of this is bad, like I said in the post.

            sorry dont count ports. that sort of makes this hole thing moot

            That’s cool that you don’t personally count ports. For the sake of the post I obviously included them since they are still very much Pokemon RPGs.

            Though I really wouldn’t call full on remakes like HeartGold and SoulSilver ports, if that’s what you’re referring to.

            Even if you don’t count Platinum, HG and SS, it still means three years in a row with Pokemon releases.

            in terms of new games, like COD, which doesnt do ports.

            pokemon isnt yearly
