Default Should I wait for Pokemon Z, or...

(If you haven't beaten X/y, this post MAY contain spoilers)

I've beaten the Elite 4 in Y, and the postgame is very disappointing IMO.
Do you think I should transfer all my Pokemon from White onto Y when the Transporter is out?
Or wait for a Z/X2/Y2 announcement in hopes that the Postgame is improved?
Since I wont be able to transfer my White Pokemon to Y, ad then to Z since it'll take WAY to long (Will have to do it one by one)

Help?

Pokebank works between both X and Y, meaning that if you have both X and Y, you can easily transfer multiple Pokemon between the two titles, so it'll very likely work with Z. Don't worry
Pokebank will be five bucks a year. Very reasonable

Pokemon Z will likely be in 2 years, if past third titles are anything to go by. PokeBank will support Z, so you will be able to transfer quickly.

Alright, guess I didn't think about that, thanks.

There was no Pokemon "Grey", so I don't see any guarantees / know if there is going to be Pokemon Z? At least I haven't found any concrete news on this. The "special editions" also usually have a strange "need to trade with two games to get everything" list, just might have some better .5 gen features. I usually pass on them and just get one of the main two versions as soon as the gen is released, no point gambling on a .5, and know the game world by the time .5's are released.

If I were you, I'd wait. To be honest, Pokemon X and Y were okay games and nothing more than that. I feel like so much more innovation could've been there that just wasn't implemented. In my opinion it doesn't rank as highly as the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd Gen's. 5th Gen made me feel the same way. I'd either wait till' Z/Y2/X2, OR I'd just hold out the long run and see if Game Freak and Nintendo actually produce another marvel worth the time and energy.

Can you tell me what X and Y were missing? I felt that they made some big steps for pokemon and yet some people said it lacked innovation.

I thought everyone loved X/Y. :/ Do they finish the game and then just feel nostalgia for the old ones again or something?

Idk i liked that breeding is just so much easier. Now everyone can get 4/5 Max IV pokemon easily and not just RNGers or hackers.
