Franchise: bringing the total to 807
Although there were no remakes in Generation V, Generation VI saw the release of {{g|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire}} worldwide in 2014, remakes of Generation III's Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. Similarly to Pokémon X and Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were released around the same time worldwide, although the games were released in Europe a week after the rest of the world. In addition to being remakes of the Generation III games, the games included new Mega Evolutions and introduced [[Primal Reversion]].
[[Generation VII]] began with the release of [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]] in November 2016; like Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, these games were released on the same day worldwide except in Europe, where the games' release was delayed a few days. This generation introduced 81 new Pokémon, taking the total up to 802. The games were released on the year of the [[Pokémon 20th Anniversary|20th anniversary of the franchise]] and are notable for being the first in the core series to lack Gyms, Badges, and HMs. [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]], enhanced versions of Pokémon Sun and Moon, were released worldwide in November 2017. These are the first games to introduce new Pokémon during a generation, excluding [[Mythical Pokémon]] that were already present in the older games' data, bringing the total to 807. [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], games heavily inspired by {{game|Yellow}}, are to be released worldwide in November 2018. These will be the first core titles for the [[Nintendo Switch]], and the first time a core title has switched to a new system mid-generation.
