    Welp, I never expected Nintendo and GameFreak to announce this, but here you go. Yes, this is real. I kid you not.

    Latest Nintendo News Pokemon-black-white-2

    It's coming out in June of this year for the Nintendo DS (from what I'm hearing, not 3DS). I'm unsure of whether it's supposed to be a brand new generation or just the third wheel of Black and White, but considering there's a 2, it sounds like a sequel.
