Here’s Why ‘Pokemon Grey’ Never Happened

There’s a thematic reason because Game Freak never done a long-rumored Pokemon Grey series. In a new talk with Game Informer, Junichi Masuda explained because Game Freak opted for Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 over a standalone supplement like in past generations. “A lot of people were awaiting Pokemon Gray during a time, though a judgment of Black and White was kind of these hostile army – a yin-yang kind of thing. If we went with Gray, it would have changed divided from that judgment so we motionless to keep a titles there.”

Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 marked a vital departure for a Pokemon franchise, as Game Freak had formerly opted to make a “solitary game” when following adult with one of their core pairs of games. Pokemon Red and Blue had Pokemon Yellow, Pokemon Gold and Silver had Crystal, Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire had Emerald, and Pokemon Diamond and Pearl had Platinum.

But Pokemon Black and 2 was a initial time Game Freak had done a approach supplement within a singular generation. Although not a initial sequels (Pokemon Gold and Silver hold that distinction), Black 2 and White 2 were a initial games to mangle divided from creation a “trilogy” of games, a tradition that the Pokemon authorization has never returned to. After creation no follow-up games for Pokemon X and Y, Game Freak is about to recover Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, an “alternate storyline” from a strange Pokemon Sun and Moon games.

In a same interview, Masuda also indicated that there were no skeleton to stop releasing remakes of comparison Pokemon games. “I don’t consider we’re focused exclusively on creation all new stuff,” Masuda said. “I consider it’s critical – a nostalgia cause is one thing – to give these memories, this content, another possibility to gleam for new players. And as a actor myself we suffer that kind of thing, as well.”

Remakes of comparison Pokemon games have turn rather of a tradition for a franchise, commencement with a recover of Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen nearly 13 years ago. Players are now anticipating for a reconstitute of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, that has been fueled by a recent re-emphasis of Gen 4 Pokemon in merchandise and a latest movie.
