Because I'm a PMD grinder...

Hello everybody and here is my rant and math calculations about the next PMD game!

So, the recent Pokemon main series game came out in the November of 2019, the recent Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game came out in the March of 2020. The main series always comes out with a new game every one year meaning Pokemon Generation either 8 1/2 (For example, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon) or 9 (which we don't know yet) will come out either November 2020 - March 2021.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon always has a weird pattern. PMD: DX came five years after Super while that came 3 years after PMD: Gates to Infinity which came out 5 years after PMD: Blue/Red Rescue Team. So my guess is that the next PMD will come out after Gen 8 1/2 - Gen 11 depending on what we get.

So, here is my question if, and when, my math is correct, we will get the next PMD game after Gen 11 at the latest. So, can I have someone confirm that?

A Pokémon shrouded in hearsay and urban legend, spoken of only in whispered tales and hushed gossip.
Each generation is about 3-4 years after the last. With that pattern, Gen IX won't be until 2022 or 2023.

Mystery Dungeon games tend to come out between the middle and tail end of a generation. We've had main one for gens III, IV, V, and VI. For whatever reason, VII was skipped. DX is a remake, so it's difficult to say if it counts for Gen VII or VIII or neither.

Assuming DX doesn't count, I'd take the earliest to be November this year IF they announce sometime in the next 2-3 weeks. Otherwise, it'd be safer to bet on autumn 2021 or spring 2022. It's definitely possible for a mainline MD game to come out so soon after DX considering both Explorers and the Japan-only Adventure Squad released the same year.
