In addition to the six [[generation]]s currently revealed, fans have come to expect '''future generations''' of the Pokémon franchise, extending the series and bringing about new concepts, new areas to explore, and most importantly, new Pokémon. Despite over 670 Pokémon currently being known to the public, it has been indicated both in-universe and by the creators of the series that not every Pokémon has yet been discovered and not every region has been explored. New generations are typically announced and marketed every three to four years.

  +
A '''version''' of the Pokémon games is a {{pkmn|games|game}}, up to present, always released on a [[Nintendo]] handheld system and developed by [[Game Freak]], which follows the now-standard model of a {{player}}'s journey through a specific [[region]] to collect all of the species of Pokémon there. Collectively, the twenty games (twenty-one in Japan and eleven in South Korea) released with the label ''Version'' after the game's title are known by fans as the '''main series''' of Pokémon games. In Japan, this series of games is officially named '''Pocket Monsters Series''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|ポケットモンスターシリーズ|Poketto Monsutā Shirīzu}}''').<ref>[http://www.pokemon.co.jp/game-series/ Official Japanese Pokémon site section]</ref>
   
==Patterns seen in previous generations==
+
==Main series model==
The five currently released generations have established and maintained a series of patterns that hint towards what a new generation may entail. Naturally, a new region, new set of Pokémon, new set of moves, and new characters are introduced in each generation. To some extents, these may encompass new concepts, but the standards set down over the past fifteen years will provide the backbone of the game.
+
===Content model===
  +
While there are no strict rules that make a game a main series game, and previously assumed rules are continuously broken, the games generally have a similar plot and mechanics.
   
===General===
+
The {{player}} begins the game in a small town or city, having no {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} of their own. Through a course of events, he {{tt|or she|Crystal onwards}} will receive a [[starter Pokémon]] from the region's [[Pokémon Professor]]; the starter Pokémon is always a choice of three, a {{t|Grass}} type, {{t|Fire}} type, or {{t|Water}} type, and the character who will become the player's [[rival]] will choose or already have the Pokémon whose [[type]] is {{DL|Damage modification|super effective}} against that of the player's choice. The exceptions to this are {{v2|Yellow}}, in which the player starts with {{p|Pikachu}} and the rival starts with {{p|Eevee}}, and {{2v2|Black|White}}, in which the player has two rivals, who each choose one of the starter Pokémon not picked by the player.
The player starts his or her journey with one of three [[starter Pokémon]], which are of the {{t|Grass}}, {{t|Fire}}, or {{t|Water}} types ([[Pokémon Yellow]] was an exception). Eight [[Gym]]s must be challenged before the player can take on the [[Pokémon League]]; a villainous team must be stopped along the way. After the League has been defeated, a range of special areas become accessible.
 
   
Each generation's first main series games are released initially as a pair, with more main series games a [[third version]] or paired sequels to the original pair of games, or [[remake]]s of previous games being released afterward. Additional main series games usually expand on the plot of previous games taking place in the same region.
+
It is at this point where the storyline of all these {{pkmn|games}} diverge. The player is allowed to journey across the entire [[region]], capturing any [[wild Pokémon]] he or she chooses to, and using a [[party]] he or she assembles to take on the eight [[Gym Leader]]s of the region. Alongside encounters with both other {{pkmn|Trainer}}s and repeated interactions with their rival, the player must also stop the plans of a [[Villainous teams|villainous team]], whose plans often involve the manipulation of [[legendary Pokémon]].
   
New generations are accompanied by new [[Pokémon manga]], {{pkmn|anime}} episodes, and [[Pokémon Trading Card Game|TCG cards]].
+
After all eight Gym Leaders have been defeated, the player can enter the [[Pokémon League]], where the [[Elite Four]] and {{pkmn|Champion}} await challengers. The Champion of the region is often introduced prior to the player's Pokémon League challenge, and may aid the player as he or she continues his or her adventure.
   
====Third versions and sequels====
+
Though the game can be considered over as soon as the player has defeated the Champion, there is still post-game content. Often there is a post-game plotline and locations and facilities that could not be previously accessed. There is usually at least one facility specifically dedicated to battling. The overarching goal is the completion of the [[Pokédex]]; after this has been done, the player will receive a [[diploma]] for completing the [[regional Pokédex]] and another for completing the [[National Pokédex]] (only one diploma is awarded in games with only one Pokédex). Starting in [[Generation III]], a new task is added in order to fully complete the game: obtaining all {{ga|Trainer Card}} [[Trainer stars|stars]].
Third versions usually expand on the original games' plot, and often contain new designs for existing places, new places, new Gym Leaders and characters in general, new Pokémon forms, more available Pokémon from previous generations, and more special features. Previous version-exclusive mascot Pokémon may both be available, usually after the player finishes the main plot.
 
   
However, in [[Generation V]], the third version concept was scrapped for two new sequels. It is unknown at this time whether the trend will continue in the future.
+
===Geography===
  +
Within each region, there are various cities and towns, ranging from Kanto's 10 to Unova's {{tt|21|including both Black City and White Forest}}. These cities and towns are connected by between {{tt|20|in Johto}} and {{tt|34|in Hoenn}} [[route]]s. Every game has included at least one [[water route]], a mountain, [[cave]]s, and a forest. The route leading up to the Pokémon League in each region is called [[Victory Road]].

[[Legendary Pokémon]] with myths specific to the region are almost always included. Recent games feature these Pokémon in roles important to the driving plot. These Pokémon often appear in [[Legendary duo|duos]] and [[legendary trio|trios]].

In all generations, there are some Pokémon that cannot be encountered until after the player enters the [[Hall of Fame]]. These may be legendary Pokémon, such as {{p|Mewtwo}}, or simply Pokémon that are not part of the game's [[regional Pokédex]].
   
The remainder of the Pokémon may be encountered once the milestone of defeating the Pokémon League is accomplished.

Before the release of a new generation, new Pokémon are often used to promote the new games by including them in the anime or in [[Side series|side games]] or [[Spin-off Pokémon games|spin-off games]].<!--If/when [[User:Caciulacdlac/Pokémon that appeared before their generation]] enters the mainspace, provide a link in this paragraph.-->

===Characters===
+
When a [[generation]] of Pokémon games begins, a pair of games is always released. These paired versions feature virtually the same storyline as each other, but the [[Version-exclusive Pokémon|Pokémon available]] differ, and some other mechanics are usually slightly different. This encourages [[trade|trading]], as it is required in order to complete the [[Pokédex]].
The first five generations have introduced some stock characters. Two [[player character]] options (one male, one female) live in a small town with their [[mom|mother]]. A previously unknown [[Pokémon Professor]] named after a type of tree will set the player's journey in motion. Eight [[Gym Leader]]s stand in the player's way to the [[Elite Four]] and the {{pkmn|Champion}}, as does the player's [[rival]](s).
 
   
Many other characters exist in various manners: [[non-player character]]s to aid the player, [[Pokémon Trainer]]s to defeat on the road, a [[villainous team]], and perhaps familiar faces.
+
A third game is later released with several minor storyline tweaks, but taking place in the same [[region]] and following the same basic storyline. Like the first two games, it will always lack some of the Pokémon present in the other games, but will also contain some of those species missing from either of them; thus, a player of the third version must link together with the original pair of games to complete the Pokédex as well.
   
The Champion of the region is frequently introduced early in the game, with his or her position as Champion not revealed until after his or her first appearance. The Champion may help the player as he or she continues his or her adventure. The Champion is usually, but not always, battled at the end of the player's Elite Four challenge.
+
Sometimes, a second set of paired versions may be released. These paired version are usually [[remake]]s of earlier titles, and are not accompanied by a third version. [[Generation V]] broke with tradition by releasing {{game3|Black and White|a pair of games|s 2}} as a sequel to the {{game3|Black and White|previous paired versions|s}} instead of a remake.
   
===Geography===
+
New generations are typically announced and marketed every three to four years.
Within each region, there are various cities and towns, ranging from Kanto's 10 to Unova's {{tt|21|including both Black City and White Forest}}. These cities and towns are connected by between {{tt|20|in Johto}} and {{tt|34|in Hoenn}} [[route]]s. Every game up to the present has included at least one [[water route]], a mountain, [[cave]]s, and a forest. The route leading up to the Pokémon League in each region has thus far been known as [[Victory Road]].

The title screen of the English Pokémon Red Version

A version of the Pokémon games is a game, up to present, always released on a Nintendo handheld system and developed by Game Freak, which follows the now-standard model of a player's journey through a specific region to collect all of the species of Pokémon there. Collectively, the twenty games (twenty-one in Japan and eleven in South Korea) released with the label Version after the game's title are known by fans as the main series of Pokémon games. In Japan, this series of games is officially named Pocket Monsters Series (Japanese: ポケットモンスターシリーズ).[1]

Main series model

Content model

While there are no strict rules that make a game a main series game, and previously assumed rules are continuously broken, the games generally have a similar plot and mechanics.

The player begins the game in a small town or city, having no Pokémon of their own. Through a course of events, he or she will receive a starter Pokémon from the region's Pokémon Professor; the starter Pokémon is always a choice of three, a Grass type, Fire type, or Water type, and the character who will become the player's rival will choose or already have the Pokémon whose type is super effective against that of the player's choice. The exceptions to this are Yellow, in which the player starts with Pikachu and the rival starts with Eevee, and Black and White, in which the player has two rivals, who each choose one of the starter Pokémon not picked by the player.

It is at this point where the storyline of all these games diverge. The player is allowed to journey across the entire region, capturing any wild Pokémon he or she chooses to, and using a party he or she assembles to take on the eight Gym Leaders of the region. Alongside encounters with both other Trainers and repeated interactions with their rival, the player must also stop the plans of a villainous team, whose plans often involve the manipulation of legendary Pokémon.

After all eight Gym Leaders have been defeated, the player can enter the Pokémon League, where the Elite Four and Champion await challengers. The Champion of the region is often introduced prior to the player's Pokémon League challenge, and may aid the player as he or she continues his or her adventure.

Though the game can be considered over as soon as the player has defeated the Champion, there is still post-game content. Often there is a post-game plotline and locations and facilities that could not be previously accessed. There is usually at least one facility specifically dedicated to battling. The overarching goal is the completion of the Pokédex; after this has been done, the player will receive a diploma for completing the regional Pokédex and another for completing the National Pokédex (only one diploma is awarded in games with only one Pokédex). Starting in Generation III, a new task is added in order to fully complete the game: obtaining all Trainer Card stars.

Geography

Within each region, there are various cities and towns, ranging from Kanto's 10 to Unova's 21. These cities and towns are connected by between 20 and 34 routes. Every game has included at least one water route, a mountain, caves, and a forest. The route leading up to the Pokémon League in each region is called Victory Road.

Pokémon

Most generations introduce Pokémon that evolve into or from previously released Pokémon. Legendary Pokémon with myths specific to the region are almost always included, and frequently appear in duos and trios.

In all generations, there are some Pokémon that cannot be encountered until after the player enters the Hall of Fame. These may be legendary Pokémon, such as Mewtwo, or simply Pokémon that are not part of the game's regional Pokédex.

Before the release of a new generation, new Pokémon are often used to promote the new games by including them in the anime or in side games or spin-off games.

Mascots

Main article: Version mascot

The boxart for each game features one Pokémon which was introduced in that generation (or, in the case of remakes, the generation of the original versions). This Pokémon is referred to by fans as a version mascot, and — with the exception of Generation I and its remakes — it is always the legendary Pokémon available in that game at the climax of the storyline.

Release model

While releases continue to break patterns, there is an overall model that the release of new main series games follows.

When a generation of Pokémon games begins, a pair of games is always released. These paired versions feature virtually the same storyline as each other, but the Pokémon available differ, and some other mechanics are usually slightly different. This encourages trading, as it is required in order to complete the Pokédex.

A third game is later released with several minor storyline tweaks, but taking place in the same region and following the same basic storyline. Like the first two games, it will always lack some of the Pokémon present in the other games, but will also contain some of those species missing from either of them; thus, a player of the third version must link together with the original pair of games to complete the Pokédex as well.

Sometimes, a second set of paired versions may be released. These paired version are usually remakes of earlier titles, and are not accompanied by a third version. Generation V broke with tradition by releasing a pair of games as a sequel to the previous paired versions instead of a remake.

New generations are typically announced and marketed every three to four years.
