I don't see too much point going into E4 or Gym Leaders for RS remakes unless they are going to use Juan as a Gym Leader or extra character. At least explain Wallace/Juan's relation more. Norman can prolly get a better background as well, leading up to why you had to move to Hoenn.

They could prolly give Wally a more dominant rival role instead of splitting the rival role between him and May/Brendan. Though making May/Brendan the Dawn/Lucas/Bianca role would be a little upsetting and kinda seem like a demotion. I mean I'd like for Wally to get more screen time as the rival, but I don't want to lose the classic Other Character Rival feel like in D/P.
While ill agree with you in that remakes have been just copy and paste games, but I think we have to look at the games they were paring up to. For instance a deep story didn't need to be aplied because well let's face it RS story wasn't that deep. With GS remakes they changed it up a little , they gave the rocket leaders individual personalities , appearance and even names. It just like team Galatics commanders had. They also did it nicely with the gym rematches givin a special area to fight them like in platinum.
So now we come to BW and BW2 where we now have a huge change in how to story goes( giving us one that's worthy of a RPG) so it would be a waste of time to remake the exact same game story wise when it's in the same gen as BW.
Now I know they haven't done that in the pass but like what was said 2 games can't really constitute as a pattern. And since the longest pattern has been broken( third game) I see no reason they wouldn't give us an enhanced story. There's really no reason they shouldn't .
So instead of giving us a remake give us a reimagining
