Should Pokemon finally come to a home console?

Pokemon Pokemon Pokemon. This month we saw the release of Pokemon X/Y for the Nintendo 3DS. And what a release it was. The game sold well and Pokemon was the topic of many discussions with friends. This generation of Pokemon saw many new features and additions to the old formula that has proven successful each release. We have new evolutions, Pokemon, items, upgraded 3D environments and great battle animations.

Now that everyone has had some time to play and complete the game. I come to a question that has always bothered me. Why haven't they released a game for the home console? I love the games on Nintendo handhelds but I always thought having a true Pokemon release on the home consoles would make for great sales and fun multiplayer action. Up to this point Game Freak has always held firm that they believe Pokemon should be a handheld game and that they will keep that idea.

With the Wii U struggling in sales I think a release will really help drive hype and sales of the console. Also with all the online/cross platform talk recently, we can even see battles across the Wii U and 3DS. My idea is that they release X/Y as they did on the 3DS. Then when they release the third in the series, we will assume it will be called Z. They release it on the Wii U. That way it will give incentive to get the Wii U and also make a BIG game on the console with a HUGE following. We will be able to see all our favorites in beautiful HD and perhaps have an expansive world with the added space on disc. This would be a monumental change in the formula and really be something special.

What do you guys think? Should Nintendo and Game Freak make a full RPG Pokemon game for the Wii U? If so, how do you think it would affect sales? Let me know!
