I've been thinking about this since X and Y were announced. The 5th gen is soon going to be sandwiched in the middle of all the recent pokemon games. It came out at the tail-end of the DS's lifespan after DP dominated it for 4 years. It's going to be stuck inbetween DP, HGSS and soon X and Y. Releasing two gens on the same system makes it seem like DP will be the most remembered while BW is stuck in its shadow as well as HGSS to an extent. Then moving to X and Y will immediately take attention away from it due to being the first on the 3DS. It probably didn't help matters that outside of Japan the 5th gen won't even last 3 years due to the X and Y games getting a simultaneous release in every country for once. What legacy do you think the 5th gen will have? I honestly think this will wind up being the most forgotten generation overall, especially with how quickly it's being swept under a rug. No remakes to extend the gen either.
