I don't know how Pokemon is holding up in other countries, but here in England, Pokemon has nearly completely died out, apart from ofcourse the DS games. It's certaintly nowhere near as popular was it was 5+ years ago. So it begs the question, are the Pokemon games coming to an end? In the next 4 years I mean. I know Pearl and Diamond are probably the highest selling DS game to date, but I fear that there may be only a few more additions to the series. Game Freaks need to aim their games at young adults and above if they want to continually sell, that audience have grown up with Pokemon. I just can't see Pokemon lasting much longer, especially with games like Pokeman Ranger etc, tarnishing the name of the great RPG games, which suggests Nintendo are trying to make as much money as possible before the franchise dies out.
What do you think? How much longer do you think it will it last?
