    Obvious statements like "This game has every Pokémon in it, making it the biggest game yet" usually always comes with press releases. Just look at WoW expansions when they're handled by the press, it usually comes with an obvious statement like "The level cap is upped to 90, giving players new heights to reach."

    And of course Game Freak are working on the next game, if not next couple of games, but new Mega Evolution most likely aren't being designed this early, if anything they're probably trying to design mid-gen Mega Evolutions right now, much like how new forms of Pokémon usually are made mid-gen. Mega Evolutions probably come later in development, the designers are probably making designs for all new Pokémons right now, or they're maybe only currently designing the framework of the next game, making concepts, or brainstorming new ideas. They're early in development with the next game most definitely, I can't imagine that they're past the concept part of it since it's such a long and important process to perfect before doing anything else. Needless to say, if they're that early in development, then the Mega Evos aren't being worked on, even in an interview Masuda stated that the Kanto Megas were made when the game was actually in a playable state, since they were implemented when he realized how cool it was to obtain the Kanto starters in the game when they were just testing it. Mega Evos are likely made well into development.

    I can imagine 6th Gen Megas to be the selling point of a mid-way game, like Platinum or Black 2 & White 2 that introduced new forms for a lot of legendaries.

    Oh, shit, I thought you were talking about the next Generation. If you're talking the mid-gen game, then I completely agree.

    it'll be like 4 years before we get a new gen way to early to speculate on that :P

Would be fantastic, but that's what we have Volt White and the kind of hacks for, just gotta wait 'till the 3DS is cracked open.
    Didn't know what Volt White was so I looked it up.

    Thank you sir. Thank you.

    Oh, I noticed that my local (Swedish) GameStop got the Sinnoh legendaries! Oh joy! (Missed Dialga, but I'll survive!)

    I personally don't understand the emphasis on legendaries.

    I hate using them, they just feel like a cheat. The new forms and the download events like a level 100 EV trained Dialga with a special 150 power move. Pointless imo

    I would much prefer them giving us a selection of level 1 bagons, dratinis, larvitars etc with a special ability which will encourage you to level it (and you can actually use it online for PvP)

    i really liked legendaries until i realized i couldn't use them in online battles or the metro. Guess it's for people who don't want that.

    What i also disliked is that they just give them away - feels kind of cheap. They should make them super strong and give you the chance to fight against them and catch them imo

    I usually just get my legendaries to collect them, I never ever use them for anything ever.

    Only use my legendaries for things like "defeat the elite four with only this type of pokemon" medals.
    Always feels kind of bad when I catch a legendary pokemon that his been around for countless millennia and then they just live in my box forever lol.

    Just started a Pokemon Blaze Black 2 Challenge mode game. BRING ON THE BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS.

    This should keep me occupied until October 12th.

    I would love 2nd eeveelution, doesn't matter which type but fighting would be nice.
    Any true evolution for any pokemon (other than eevee) is what I'm really hoping for, just to prove it's not all about megas.

    It's already confirmed that there won't be any mega-evolutions for 6th gen pokemon. Also, it would be extreme overkill to have mega-evos for the 6th gen legendaries: I can't even imagine how they would fit mega-evos for any legendary.
