What's the deal with people and their RS remakes? I mean, they'll happen, obviously, but they will be part of Gen VI. Clearly, they'll release Gen VI first and then they'll do the remakes, all of it for the 3DS. This is because if they decided to make them now, during Gen V, they would have to make them for the 3DS, since DS games are already discontinued, and that would cause compatibility issueswit h BW and B2W2. If you think about it for a while it's all about inter-game compatibility.
I understand the argument that DS games are discontinued, but I don't think it means incompatibility between a DS G5 and 3DS G6. After all, G3 is compatible with G4 (one-way transfers), and G4 with G5 (again, one-way transfers). I have Pokemon that are gonna be 10-years-old this year on White.
That's understandable as well, but only if you remember that those are different generation games as well. Games of a same generation are always characterized by compatibility on both ways, while being capable of receiving from the previous one. Now, I'm not saying that dual compatibility between both systems is necesarilly impossible, but it's far easier to simply make a Gen VI and the RS remakes being compatible with them, at least at this point in the franchise.
And out of topic, we should also remember that B2W2 came last year: It's highly unlikely that a Gen VI will be released so soon, and following the previous line of thought, a remake is also unlikely. It's probably gonna be some side game, something for the Wii U or worse! Anime-related...
Well at first I thought it would be a R/S remake and still hope that it is because I love those games. I don't really want a new generation just yet, but I guess even if it is announced it won't be out until at least towards the end of the year. But because I've heard all this talk about a new eeveelution recently I'm starting to swing more to Gen 6, plus the Genesect movie having one blank spot on merchandise or some crap like that that I saw on serebii, I dunno, don't pay much attention to the movies.

I think a new eeveelution due to all the markerting Eeeve has gotten. The new TCG expansion, Ash battling a trainer that owns all of the Eeveelutions, being able to catch Eevee for the first time in B2W2, and the mini Eevee movie announced with the Genesect one. Plus Pokemon's twitter asked how many eeveelutions there are.
Either this is a major coincidence, or we may see a future eeveelution
