Red and Green were released in Japan on Feb 27, 1996
FireRed and LeafGreen were released on Jan 29, 2004.
So no, they came out nowhere near the 10th anniversary. In fact, Diamond and Pearl were released closer, as they came out in 2006.
So what you are saying is, one of the biggest supporting arguments for the remakes being made in a certain time period was all hogwash?
I have no problem with this XD
The easter egg for the two grunts: the grunts say it was many years ago so it would be before the incident of B2W2 since that's how they reference TR and Galactic. Magma and Aqua just aren't as note worthy.
