There was mention of that the Isshu region being far off from past regions to the point you'd need to take an airplane or boat to get to any of them. There also was mention of a new mode of transportation in the game. An airplane would be a new mode of transportation. Maybe, just maybe, though I really doubt it, they will allow you to take an airplane to an old region! Like I said, I really doubt it, but what does everyone think about that and how transportation could be used with everything?

They'll probably just throw us in some chain of islands.

I'm doubting this since it's a rebirth and I think they're looking forward as best as they can instead of looking back. That being said I would love a return to Hoenn with a brand new plot instead of RSE remakes but that might just be me. =/

Yeah, it just seems a little odd that they'd mention airplane (I heard this indirectly, so I may be wrong) so notably in that context. I have a feeling it will have a use.

Sevii's. Really. Hell yeah.
And here goes explaining :
We haven't seen the Sevii Isles in quite a while, that is since 2004. I'd like to see a new plot around them, so that I could be convinced they weren't just thrown in for daddyskipping and us being happy in FRLG. Plus, I really loved them.
HELL SEVII ISLANDS BACK YEAH !! <- That's actually never gonna happen :0.

Haha I knew you were going to show up. It's my least favourite region too, as Hoenn is my favourite. All I care is we go back to Hoenn somehow.

Yeah, it just seems a little odd that they'd mention airplane (I heard this indirectly, so I may be wrong) so notably in that context. I have a feeling it will have a use.

They did mention airplane, not really with any serious context but they did. And we're also seeing cars and boats that we've never seen before so anythings possible.

I voted for Hoenn, but I am still hoping for a Pokemon game is which I can travel through all regions and catch all Pokemon in their original habitats.

you missed out one region that hasnt been in the games thats right the orange islands, I do wish its hoenn more than the OI but if its a rebirth I dint think they'll go to a place they've been before then it wouldnt be a rebirth

Hoenn please. Imagine a game with Hoenn and Isshu as Isshu looks great right now, wow!

May 16th, 2010, 01:18 AM
As long as Isshu is well thought out and there's enough to do, I'm fine with there being just one region. Like, it has features with gameplay value lasting long after the main plot is finished ( a la Battle Frontier, Gym leader rematches, etc).

Kanto's perfect attendance record: 4 generations. It's time to explore newer, cooler places. Time to forget about Johto too. You guys just had it given to you again. Sinnoh? I just travelled on ya, mate! And Hoenn? Probably would appear in a remake.

I'd prefer they focus on a single region and flesh it out with stuff. No point in wishing we'd have multiple regions just because it happened in the second generation.

I'm bland. This region is so far away from anything else, and while a mode of transportation that'll be able to bridge this gap is very likely, such as a plane or something, I really would like this game to really play on the fact that it's so far away and make it seem like that as well. I'm hoping this game has little to no influence that originated in previous regions. But what Erik said! I would love to have the return of islands. That made LeafGreen and FireRed fun for me.

I think the main reason two regions appeared in Generation II was simply because of the fact they were trying to show the world was expanding and that Kanto and Johoto were right next to eachother. That doesn't occur with any other region... why would it occur with one so far away?

May 16th, 2010, 07:18 AM
I don't really think at all they are going to add any more regions to the game.. maybe in the 3rd installment but not in B&W! At least we have a new region! If you want to go to one of the other regions play the other games :|

This this this this.

Guys, enough of Kanto, you've seen that in Gen I, Gen II, and in the Gen II remakes. I think it's finally time that we've forgot about Kanto. If you really want Kanto that badly, then play the old Gen I games or HG/SS. I do not mean any offense by this, but it's time that Kanto be left alone now. The same can be said for Johto. Hoenn? It's really unlikely.

Give me something new instead of something old that you've managed to just revamp a bit. Some of us have been through it, and its nothing new to us, so its time we've actually got something new. :(

Samme!
May 16th, 2010, 07:49 AM
Like everyone else has said, please no Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, etc. ): I do however have a feeling that Hoenn will be remade later in 2012 or so just like HG/SS were remade. But an island chain as something extra would be nice, and if I could dream, I would want the Orange Islands or something comparable to them to be introduced into the games :]

I think we will probably see something like the Sevii Islands.

I doubt they'll remake RSE, since there really is not a lot of demand for them. It's going to be interesting to see how they'll replace the RSE remakes though, since for the last two generations they've made remakes. I honestly have no idea what they'll do, but I hope they don't just go straight to Gen 6 after Black and White.

This.

A game with all regions is never going to exist, and the only games that included multiple full regions happened to be GSC and HG/SS in which case they were side-by-side, and Isshu is far away from everyone. I really don't think the new "vehicle" is going to be some sort of airplane. With my luck it will be like a scooter or something. ):

I would really like to see something like uncharted territory. Maybe after you finish Isshu's storyline, you can go out past the border of Isshu and explore new places with not even a Town Map to guide you - I mean, how can it be uncharted if it's charted? n_n

It'd be really awesome if you could like map it out as you go through this new unexplored place and find people who are suited to living life without knowing how advanced everything has gotten down in Isshu. Maybe even like uncivilized cavemen... although that seems too much of a stretch for even Pokémon games. ):

Edit: I also don't ever want to see Orange Islands. That was way too long ago to include it now.

it's been in ever generation so far-
Gen 1
Gen 2
it's remakes in Gen 3
Gen 2 remakes in gen 4
i hate kanto- it's dry
if they insist on adding an extra area, they should make up some small island, maybe with 4 gyms- that's it

I agree about the extra exploring place :) Perhaps you gain permission to go through caves in one direction or another to get to new areas (Or unlocking a New HM-thing after the main story is over).

Including the Orange Islands would be a bad idea, however they could use the principle of the alternative battles so that you get to do something different once Isshu is mostly finished.

I do hope the main focus is the Isshu region, the other bits should be minor (adding very little gameplay at the end) however I think the story should be more about exploring/looking for things rather than being driven simply by another team that wants to control/end the world.

Well I expect Hoenn will appear in remakes during 5th Generation so no point in including Hoenn.
Maybe Sinnoh or Seviis. Kanto has been in all four Gens to date so it's kind of played out even though it's my favorite region.

We seriously need Hoenn back. We already have Johto and Kanto in HG/SS and God knows no one wants to revisit Sinnoh.

This thread reminds me of this one (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=207147).

If there was to be another region featured, I can't really think of one that I would like or that hasn't been done already. Sinnoh's too recent (plus, I didn't care much for it) and Kanto and Johto were redone in HG/SS. That leaves Hoenn but honestly, I'd rather have an entire remake dedicated to it than to have it be part of some crappy post-Elite Four subplot. And, as I mentioned in my post in the above thread, the same goes for Orange Islands. I'm not really familiar with any of the other regions (e.g., the ones in the spin-off games).

Looking at it from a technical viewpoint, I don't think it'd be possible without raising the price of the game by a lot. Already, we have full 3D cities and animated battle sprites, not to mention roughly 100 to 110 new Pokémon. D/P/Pt/HG/SS might have been able to get away with stuffing it into about 512 MB because it's 2.5D, but this will probably be a much larger game, making it economically foolish to put in another region in full 3D as well.

However, technical logistics aside, MOAR KANTO. We already have a streak of it being in each generation thus far; let's not break it.

As much as I love hoenn, I dont want it to be in Black & White. Hoenn deserves its own game, if it were to be in Black & White I fear that it will take away from the Isshu region. Maybe they will add in some new region, or islands kinda like the sevii islands.

Aureol
May 16th, 2010, 06:16 PM
I don't mind a region being missing from a generation, just so long as it's available on the same device. On DS, we already have Kanto, Johto and Sinnoh, so the only region missing is Hoenn, which will probably come in the form of a remake. So, I'm gonna vote that no extra region should be added.

IronMan1994

I'd trade a Colloseum/XD:GoD remake for a R/S/E remake anyday. I like Hoenn, but Colloseum/XD were more fun for me.

Esper
May 16th, 2010, 06:21 PM
Isn't everyone satisfied with the existing regions?

If Isshu is going to be connected to any region I want it to be another completely new region. I know wanting more than one region per generation is probably asking too much, but I don't want to go back when I can keep going forward.

No point in wishing we'd have multiple regions just because it happened in the second generation.I agree with you we should just ask GF to focus on this region and making it big and creative with lot's of environments rather than waste time making a already existing region in BW form plus Hoenn will return in my all so desired remakes where it will shine by itself just like I desire Isshu to shine by itself.

I think the game would be better if it just focused on the new region, with no connections to other regions.

But if I had to choose, probably the Hoenn region, because we haven't been there in a while. We just got Johto in HGSS, Kanto was there also. And Sinnoh we just had.

I don't want to see the old regions in this game. I would like some throwbacks to them, ie the occasional person who lived or trained in another region mentions its name when you talk to them, but otherwise? Let this be a brand new experience. Very brief cameos are okay but the emphasis should be on the new region, not nostalgic old regions which, tbh, aren't all that nostalgic anymore because they've been released or revamped so recently.

I want these games to totally stand alone. D:

magma you're as right as ever. if any region that the plane will fly to it will be Hoenn. Hoenn's remake will more than likely be coming in this gen so it's only expected...and yeah Kanto needs to recupirate for a few gens before comin' back XD.

true, true. this is what they'll probably do with Isshu at first, but if an RSE remake will come then Isshu will be linked to Hoenn around that time or vice versa.

Just a thought...

What if, since Isshu is like in the middle of nowhere, you took a plane, instead of a boat to other regions! You know no S.S. Anna or S.S. Aqua. Maybe you take like an air bus and you go somewhere else. Instead of finding someone you would have to help the pilots or the waiters? Not sure it's just a thought!

Maybe you take a plane to other parts of them region rather than a new region. Maybe some parts are inaccessible due to unscaleable mountains, or the seas are simply too long to cross. Maybe the entire region is split up into large segments of land, with a few cites per segment. I'd quite enjoy this. HG/SS lost it's momentum. I didn't enjoy two regions because you weren't training up new pokemon. It was just grinding for Red. I love training up new Pokemon, watching them evolve. I hope this new region shows us some fantastical technology. Like ipods, proper cellphones. The pokegear was irritating. Stupid people telling me they just failed to catch a sentret. Woop de doo. Hopefully new technology playing mini-games of the touch screen on the back of the chair in the plane. Would that not be cool?

i think hoenn will be the best option..we've seen remakes of all the other regions..[of course you wanna see them in D/P B/W graphics]..hoenn still is the best..we've never seen hoenn in D/P graphics..
JOHTO,KANTO-HG/SS
SINNOH-D/P/P why not hoenn right?.
