Yeah, I see more potential in ANYTHING than plain remakes.
While there is one major flaw, that they never put all of Hoenns' Pokemon in one game but they can work with the story a lot more because it featured both teams
Crystal events were added to HG/SS but there wasn't a drastic change in story between G/S and C, just the events with Eusine and the extra attention to Suicune
Emerald, on the other hand, had a drastic story change, adding both teams to the game thus extending gameplay by a few hours worth.
I mean think about it, if R/S remakes come out, they would pay attention to their respective legend, completely eliminating Rayquaza from the main story and taking away the team rivalry Aqua and Magma shared.
I really don't want them to work with a watered down story while Emerald was the better game in every aspect.
Completely agree. So few people seem to understand this.
Gamefreak don't make half-assed games.
What do you think of my Emerald-key soltuion to this problem?
After someone finishes R or S, they unlock the E-key, which can be sent to another unplayed R/S to change it into E.
Similar to the keys in BW2, just on a bigger scale.
That way if you got 2 games, it would be equivalent of buying one and the third version.
