Funny how that is...
It was pretty obvious back then given the success of the franchise at the timethat they would have time to keep growing these young ideas riding off the initial success of gen 1 and the hype of main sequels. Especially given how much we know about pokemon designs for future gens being done generations before they were even released.
Personally I don't feel like the franchise has another 3-4 gens of success left in it.
