Since Pokemon Black and White were first announced, fans have assumed that the games would eventually see a third "director's cut" edition, just as every "main series" Pokemon game has before them. Pokemon Red and Blue had Pokemon Yellow, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl had Pokemon Platinum, and so forth. Fans even went as far to dub this non-existent new game Pokemon Gray, which makes sense given the names of Pokemon Black and White, and [SPOILERS]You can catch a gray legendary in Pokemon Black and White, who would make a great mascot for Pokemon Gray.[/SPOILERS]

It looks like fans waiting for Pokemon Gray may be out of luck. According to one translation, Pokemon developer Gamefreak has stated that "With Black and White, we have concluded this iteration.”

That's what they say now. It wouldn't make much sense for Gamefreak to announce a superior version of Pokemon Black/White right before the games are released outside of Japan, would it? I wouldn't be surprised if at E3 this year, Gamefreak and Nintendo announce their decision to "un-conclude their conclusion", and announce Pokemon Gray for this holiday season. It wouldn't be the first time a developer has "changed their minds" on a decision like this when the time was right.
