Really? I can see that with Gen 2, but I rarely ever hear criticism of Gen 5 for being rushed through, that's usually criticism of Gen 6. People often talk about how they want to see more sequel games in the vein of BW2, so being rushed through seems at odd with that.Gen 2 and 5 are currently the shortest Gens and have received criticism for being rushed through, so I don’t know if GF will be willing to introduce a new shortest Gen in Gen 8 especially with everything else surrounding it.
I don't know that I'd call that a big celebration- a few of them had major roles like Annabelle and Colress, but most of them were just brief appearances. Definitely welcome, but not something that seems like it was specially planned for as much as something that could have been done in any generation.It had appearances from of a number of characters spanning almost all the Gens. And USUM had the Rainbow Rocket. It's debatedly not much, but it did celebrate the franchise...but mostly Kanto.
BW2 was in 2012, that was the 16th anniversary. Not an especially remarkable date.How so? BW2 was also an anniversary title and thus set the precedent for one happening within the generation.
