The games look to be very good, and are both selling terms of themselves - and in terms of DS hardware. This is all Nintendo really cares about ;)
Im curious to know where they take the franchise from here. I think its high tide, we get a REAL 3D, console version of Pokemon - and Im hoping it is coming to the Wii (probably in 2 years :P). They may develop/release a DS version to go side by side with it, which could be interesting (no reason why a 3D pokemon couldn't succeed on the DS).
PS - Im playing Pokemon Ranger at the moment (started yesterday), and I am really enjoying it. The scope and polish of the game is much better than I was expecting (in a lot of ways, it seems to rival a full Pokemon title).
