The fifth generation of Pokémon, recently revealed, is the upcoming fifth installment of the Pokémon games released. Like previous generations, it will likely begin with two games, released as a pair, and later be joined by a third version. The paired games, whose titles have been revealed to be Pokémon Black and White Versions, have been announced to have an expected release date of late 2010, and will, in an unprecedented move, be released for the Nintendo DS, the same console as Generation IV's main series games.

It is currently unknown what region the games will take place in, though the announcement heralding the release revealed that the games will explore new areas, with the hope that they will surpass Pokémon Diamond and Pearl in quality, indicating that a new region is on its way. The setting for the Generation V games is also unknown, as it may or may not be contemporaneous with any of the previous four generations.

Zoroark and Zorua, featured in Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark

In general, Generation V Pokémon begin their National Pokédex numbers at 494 and continue to a point that is as of this time unknown.

Currently, two Generation V Pokémon are known. A silhouette, revealed on the February 7, 2010 episode of Pokémon Sunday, was later revealed to be the Pokémon Zoroark, a Template:Type2 Pokémon that debuts in the thirteenth movie. Its full form was revealed shortly afterward by CoroCoro, alongside its pre-evolutionary form Zorua. Both are canine Pokémon, causing many to draw similarities between the two as well as the Vulpix, Poochyena, and Riolu evolution families.
