The thing that bothers me is that we've seen examples of excessive promotions that didn't actually hint at anything, even though we thought they had to mean something. The more they go overboard with promoting Eevee and its current evolutions, the more I wonder if they aren't just being random.
A lot of fans are speculating about Genesect getting an ancient counterpart that would be treated as a separate Pokémon, in the same way that Mewtwo and Mew aren't a single species. The problem with that theory is that Genesect's DNA wasn't modified, but rather its exterior structure (mostly its cannon) was altered. Unlike with Mewtwo, Genesect's Pokédex entries refer to it as having existed in the past:
Over 300 million years ago, it was feared as the strongest of hunters. It has been modified by Team Plasma.
This ancient bug Pokémon was altered by Team Plasma. They upgraded the cannon on its back.
This Pokémon existed 300 million years ago. Team Plasma altered it and attached a cannon to its back.
Its classification is the Paleozoic Pokémon . How would its ancient counterpart be classified if it were another species, then? There isn't a good reason why it wouldn't just be labeled as a Forme, but I don't see a Forme being representative of a new generation. It could be introduced, but I'm pretty sure Movie 16 will have another star either way.
The Eeveelution tournament isn't important, but Generation VI should either be announced next month or in January. Regardless of whether or not a new Eeveelution is going to be introduced via the anime, the star of Movie 16 will almost certainly be a new Pokémon.
I've been up to playing Pokemon White Version 2. That's literally all I've been doing the past 3 days. Also watching Falling Skies at the same time. It's pretty good, but not quite good enough to deserve my full undivided attention.
I don't usually look at dog pictures, but someone posted this on facebook and it struck me.
