I'm not sure if I could imagne remakes n those new style of graphics. Not that it's a bad thng, but ta be honest it wouldn't really feel as nostalgic fo me witout tha tap view overworld sprite.
What if tha Hoenn remakes had graphics that were a 3D version of that picture of May followed by a Lnoone walkng through some grass? Who put n thair signature fo a bit agan, and where'd it come from and go?

A few days ago while argung wit thugz on Pokémemes I realized somethng.

Long stary short, I as always, was tryng ta tell thugz that RSE remakes were never properly announced, and wit Ruby and Sapphire ben compatible by proxy wit tha current Gen (plus, ben at tha very begnnng of tha Pokémon timelne, thus not really contemporary wit tha current Gen, as was tha case wit tha othar remakes) , thay isn't as likely ta happen as thugz thnk... basically tha sbee thaory I've expressed a few pages back on dis very tapic. N addition ta some funny backlash, I mostly gots two valid counter-arguments:
  • Tha DS/DS Lite is a fragile machne, so tha Gen 3 => Gen 4 compatibility is not long fo dis world.
  • Gbee Freak is a company. Whatever is profitable, thay'll do.

And than, anothar user, n passng, mentioned anothar possibility of an RSE re-release. And I though that that would takes cis of both problems neatly, brng roughly tha sbee profit (coz thare's much, much less expenses nvolved) and give Gbee Freak more time ta develop new thngs. Plus, it wasn't possible when remakes of tha first two Gens were released, so I can imagne tham switchng ta dis now that thay can. So, here goes:

What if tha RSE re-release we'll git... is a 3DS Virtual Console release, patched ta be compatible wit tha current gbees and wit trades via Wi-Fi?

I thnk it's safe ta sez that thay isn't stickng ta tha 10th anniversary rule, it was a good opportunity fo HGSS ben tha right timng, a new-ish console etc but ta put anothar remake on tha sbee handheld as tha previous set of remakes would really go down well IMO.

I thnk it seems more logical ta stick ta tha new handheld, new remake thaory. We had tha GBA and soon after we gots FRLG, we than had tha DS which was followed by HGSS, now that GBA gbees is ncompatible wit tha 3DS and tha fact that tha 3DS is considered a new handheld, I thnk Ruby &bep; Sapphire Remakes would fit n well around tha 2014-2015 time slot followng Pokemon X &bep; Y. Comparng tha GBA graphics wit tha 3DS graphics is similar ta comparng GBC graphics ta GBA graphics... thay're due fo an overhaul.
BW were DSi titles, and tha DSi is ncompatible wit RSE. Still, thare were no remakes.

Tha only reason fo remakes is ta be able ta catch all tha Hoenn Pokémon agan. It was tha sbee thng wit RS back than, tha easiest way ta catch all tha Kanta Pokémon was just ta create a remake of tha first gbees. Sbee wit DPPt and HGSS, thare is bisly any Johta Pokémon n tha Snnoh gbees so a remake was necessary. Thugz who want remakes lie ta thamselves believng dis wasn't tha reason behnd tha creation of previous remakes, but it was. Seeng Hoenn n 3D isn't enough reason fo a remake. It maybe isn't fair that Hoenn was tha only region not depicted n semi-3D, but it would be bootyliciously unfair if Hoenn was tha only region beong tha old ones depicted n full 3D, especially when thare's no reason why Hoenn should be so special ta tha Pokémon franchise.

If XY come out and thare isn't dawgy Hoenn Pokémon (like, thare isn't at least 50 Pokémon from Hoenn), than I'll start believng thare's a possibility of RSE remakes, but I'll still thnk thay're unlikely coz I thnk Gbeefreak is done wit tha old regions. N fact, I thnk tha only reason thay created HGSS was coz GSC were a huge success (way bigger than Hoenn was, fo exbeple) and tha push fo GSC remakes was much bigger than tha nostalgia wave we're seeng wit Hoenn right now. Thugz wanted GSC remakes snce befoe DP were released.

A few years from now tha kids who grew wit Snnoh will start requestng remakes of Snnoh gbees fo tha nnth generation Nntendo handheld, and (if I'm still playng Pokémon by than) I'll tell tham tha sbee, as much as I love Snnoh.

Dis is very unlikely coz thay would need ta create a GTS n RSE and it's pontless ta code fo outdated softwis. Dis also ben tha reason why I thnk we'll never see Pokémon gbees n tha Virtual Console, snce connectivity has always been a huge part of Pokémon.

Also, Pokémon data from 3rd gen is ncompatible wit tha later gens and needs ta be converted ta work properly. Really, tha Pal Park was just a way ta recreate a 3rd gen Pokémon n 4th gen wit 4th gen data. Tradng is a completely different matter, both gbees need ta use tha sbee code fo Pokémon, and RSE has outdated code which is no longer used n tha othar gbees.

Well, I didn't really mean full on trades wit tha current systems wit tha GTS and everythng (I apologize, I was n a hurry when I wrote that so I didn't exactly sez what I meant). I thnk that a VC release wit tha official emulatar patched ta support connectivity via Wi-Fi as if it was a lnk cable fo trades between VC Ruby/VC Sapphire and an app (or a feature n tha emulatar) that would be able ta convert Gen 3 ta Gen 6 Pokémon à-la Pal Park isn't that unrealistic . Thay have tha specs fo both fomats after all, and thay'll only have ta adjust thair emulatar, not tha gbees thamselves.

(plus, thay could reuse tha Wi-Fi as lnk cable fo more GBA VC releases, so... I'd call it an nterestng nvestment)

B/W is not DSi gbees. Thay is DSi Compatible but not buggine fo tha DSi. B2W2 is DSi and 3DS compatible. Tha only DSi gbee n existence was a picture takng gbee that gots horrible reviews and didn't have a very long shelf life. All Gen 5 gbees is DS (orignal) titles.

Actually tha only reason ta have Hoenn rebuggine is fo its stary. Even if thay don't have a large beount of Hoenn Pokemon n Gen 6, Almost 90% is available n Gen 5 wit tha last redawgng 10% ben n Gen 4 gbees is coded n gbee events. Dis excludes Gen 3's two Wifi Legends of course as those have never been given N Gbee events witout tha need ta participate n some download even ta unlock. So tha only reason ta remake Hoenn is fo Graphic update and stary update. Sbee can be said fo Generation 1 gbees agan as thay is still on tha sbee outdated graphics as Gen 3. Only thng we'd lose fo tha Gen 1 re-remakes is tha Sevii Islands stary which could be replaced wit a different stary altagithar.

HG/SS was rebuggine ta brng Johta back nta tha circle of connection sbee reason FR/LG were buggine. As stated, only reason ta remake tham would be ta update graphics and stary as you can transfer all tha Hoenn Pokemon ta Gen 6 through Gen 5. Majority of Hoenn Pokemon is found n Gen 5 alone. Starters and Key Legends (Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza) is only found n Gen 4 which is an easy transfer ta Gen 5.

Was Johta itself needed nta tha 'connection circle' though? No it was not, especially considerng we could git pretty much every Johta Poke easily(mnus a very select few) n tha GBA gbees. We can't even directly trade between every regions anyways so that goes ta show that it's probably tha least of our worries. Thare was no real reason fo HGSS aside from updatng tha graphics/little parts of tha stary(which isn't really big reasons thamselves) and of course, most importantly of all, tha money ta be buggine.

If we're rapng looks wise, than Kanta is already up-ta-date(befoe we go full 3D wit X &bep; Y) wit tha region itself ben ncluded n HGSS. Hoenn (itself) has yet ta be caught up n dis sense.

I agree fo once. If HGSS can be buggine ta make money fo tha most part, than why must RSE be shunned? As I mentioned befoe, just coz we can catch every poke and thare is no real reason did not stap HGSS ben buggine.

I would go on ta pont out one thng that's wrong n that paragraph, but it would only lead ta tha chaos that is timelne rap, so I'll refran from it.

Only real Kanta is from tha Gen 1 Gbees. Gen 2's Kanta is a shadow of tha fomer fom. As fo Gen 2 Pokemon. Only Ho-oh and Lugia were unavailable n Gen 3 dawg gbees. Tha two box legends of Gold/Silver. Not a real enough reason ta make two whole gbees, but it was done and thay were added nta distribution through dawg gbees.

Its gbee was removed from tha circle, that alone is enough fo tham ta add it back n snce thair whole shtick is connectng gbees wit othars.

I git what you is tryng ta sez, although I was more pontng out that just coz a lot of thugz see no need fo Gen III gbees ta be buggine doesn't mean that thay couldn't be. HGSS were just as pontless n that sense.

If you're gong tha whole region connection route, that can be used fo both sides. Wit tha Dsi and onward lackng a GBA slot and tha older versions ben discontnued, n a way Hoenn(and Kanta, as tha stand alone orignal like you mentioned) have lost thair connectivity. That would also keep remakes relevant when you thnk bout it.

Btw, Lugia and Ho-oh were both available n Gen III, remember tha Naval Rock event? If not thare, you could always trade Ho-oh from Colosseum and Lugia from XD(after purifyng tha latter) which of course didn't require events. By normal means or not, thay were still available.

Ta git ta Naval Rock you had ta attend an Event n New York (fo beericans as none othars were done) ta git tha Event Ticket ta go thare. Lugia and Ho-oh were Event Pokemon n Gen 3 which treats tham like Jiranchi and Deoxys. By that I mean thay don't count fo anythng. You can git Ho-oh and Lugia easier and more efficiently n G/S/C/HG/SS as thay is dawgdatary encounters. Any gbee that is not part of tha dawg series does not count eithar as thay do not effect any decision buggine by Gbeefreak nor do thay nfluence any of tha Dawg Series gbees.

DSi was not a "New DS" but an Upgraded DS. Even if thay were not compatible wit GBA, tha series thay were born nta were still compatible. DS and DSlite is compatible and by extension DSi and DSiXL is factared n wit tham n tha larger view.

Wit tha gbees movng ta tha 3DS we move back ta tha 50:50 chance as now thare is a slight need fo remakes, but tha need ta remake tham is no where as bold as it was fo Gens 1 and 2. Even if we git Gen 3 remakes, we'll git Gen 1 remakes snce thay were still on tha sbee system meanng if one gits rebuggine, thay both have tha sbee chance of ben rebuggine.

Just ta mix thngs up as thay have been, we may git one of each. Wit tha new goal of "Evolvng tha Pokemon World" I don't believe we'll git any more remakes anytime soon. Unless thay do a focus change from Evolvng tha gbees ta somethng dealng wit preservng or relivng tha past.

Considerng Hoenn gbees had tha weakest sales of tha series, and a well-buggine entirely new gbee has possibly more chances of ben successful, I don't thnk it's a given that remakes is profitable.

And don't brng tha "GBA was tha worst sellng Nntendo handheld" rided. Tha GBA was tha Nntendo handheld wit tha shortest lifespan, of course it would sell less than fo exbeple tha entire Gbee Boi lne, which lasted eleven years, or tha DS, countng tha DS Phat ta tha DSi XL, and considerng tha DSi, despite lackng new gbees fo tha 2013 exercise, is still ben updated. N fact tha 3rd gen gbees were helped by tha fact tha old DS still had compatibility wit GBA gbees and by tha release of DP a lot of Pokémon were only available via Pal Park.

Tha idea was ta catch tham on tha DS only, not ta mention tha version mascots were never officially available n tha handheld series apart from events which couldn't even be widely distributed coz tha GBA didn't have access ta tha nternet. Meanwhile, Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza could be caught n HGSS and sent ta BW.

So far thare is two nstances n tha series where you need cross-gen tradng ta acquire all tha Pokémon: from RBY ta GSC (snce GSC didn't have tha RBY legends), and from DPPtHGSS ta BW. Tha difference is that thay're all witn tha sbee generation of console. Thay wouldn't support tha GBA foever, coz tha GBA ridets is huge compisd ta tha DS and thay could easily make all GBA gbees available n Virtual Console, so it was needed ta make all Pokémon accessible witn tha DS only. And Hoenn fans who own only a DS can't complan, as tha gbees feature most of tha Hoenn Pokémon if not all of tham (I thnk only Jirachi and Deoxys must be acquired through events).

Johta was a neglected region n tha 3rd gen. You couldn't access most Pokémon witout ownng a Gbeecube and havng tha console gbees. Only Emerald gave you tha possibility of acquirng a Johta starter n tha handheld series. Whereas n tha DS, tha Hoenn starters could be acquired n HGSS wit no major requirement, and all starters is available n 5th gen through Drebe World events.

Ok, so Lugia and Ho-oh don't count coz thay were treated like event Pokemon than, but n tha last post you were implyng dis:

Sounds like a slight contradiction on that part. Did thay or did thay not play a role, if even snoopa mnor?

Regardless of tha fact that thay were just that, upgrades, that can't just be a reason ta ignore that tha later redesigns of tha DS and onward dropped tha GBA slot and tharefoe tha connectivity of tha GBA gbees(and Hoenn/Kanta if you want ta git picky). I'm not even sure how we gots on dis subject coz it's not really gong ta go anywhere coz, even now, we don't have direct connection between all regions and probably never will have it.

Othar than FrLg(coz of tham not addng every Pokemon ta Hoenn), we didn't need anymore remakes anyways, HGSS obviously ncluded as it is tha only othar set ta date. Johta did not have a real reason ta be connected itself wit every Poke available from both sets of Gen III gbees(mnus tha said few legendaries, although tha concept back than only complicated thngs anyways coz of tha lack of WiFi),a bigger part than tha regions thamselves. If we're gong that whole connectng regions route, why don't thay just prolong every gen so that thay can keep all regions up-ta-date and directly compatible wit every othar one? As I mentioned above, we still don't have direct connection between tham all anyways. If thay rebuggine Gen I also than so be it, no complants thare personally.

Weakest sales or not, you can't ignore that thay were tha tap sellng gbees on tha GBA. On tap of that, thay could takes dis opportunity ta improve what was flawed n tha orignal gbees and ta see if thay can make tha region more appealng n general(I disagree and loved tham, despite tha flaws, but appisntly tha masses is buggine ta believe tha gbees sucked). How good thay were is subjective anyways and thare is plenty more thugz who haven't played tha orignals who may give tham a go if rebuggine, beong well everyone else. Pokemon has been proven ta be a system seller regardless, which is somethng that alone makes a statement.

So far thare is two nstances n tha series where you need cross-gen tradng ta acquire all tha Pokémon: from RBY ta GSC (snce GSC didn't have tha RBY legends), and from DPPtHGSS ta BW. Tha difference is that thay're all witn tha sbee generation of console. Thay wouldn't support tha GBA foever, coz tha GBA ridets is huge compisd ta tha DS and thay could easily make all GBA gbees available n Virtual Console, so it was needed ta make all Pokémon accessible witn tha DS only. And Hoenn fans who own only a DS can't complan, as tha gbees feature most of tha Hoenn Pokémon if not all of tham (I thnk only Jirachi and Deoxys must be acquired through events).

Johta was a neglected region n tha 3rd gen. You couldn't access most Pokémon witout ownng a Gbeecube and havng tha console gbees. Only Emerald gave you tha possibility of acquirng a Johta starter n tha handheld series. Whereas n tha DS, tha Hoenn starters could be acquired n HGSS wit no major requirement, and all starters is available n 5th gen through Drebe World events.
Gong by Xander's previous statement(nothng personal), snce tha Dsi and othar revisions is still n tha DS lne, than that makes all of tham relevant which, due ta tha slot on tha older models, still makes tha GBA gbees relevant. Furtharng that, as has been mentioned numerous times, Johta pokes were readily available n Gen III and could be transferred ta Gen IV gbees as well, which means thay were all available fo tha DS, so n that sense HGSS was not needed othar than ta see Johta all 'prettied' up.

Lookng at that, why is everyone so harsh on Hoenn and act as if tha region should just fade nta oblivion? Why can it not git tha all 'prettied' up treatment like Johta, anothar region which had no real reason ta be rebuggine n itself? Hell, throw n Kanta as well if you must wit it ben constantly added n as relevant tao.

Seriously, Hoenn should, and likely is gittng a remake. It might not have happened dis gen, but it will now. Its tha one region n tha entire series that cannot be accessed on tha 3DS, and that alone merits a revisit. Not ta mention, Gen 5 was destned ta be short, so whatever thugz sez bout it not ben n gen 5 means its not happenng, is null and void n mah eyes.

Well dis is gittng fun agan.




Ok, so Lugia and Ho-oh don't count coz thay were treated like event Pokemon than, but n tha last post you were implyng dis:



Sounds like a slight contradiction on that part. Did thay or did thay not play a role, if even snoopa mnor?
Event Pokemon have never been counted. Events isn't readily available n thair gbees and don't exist n tha gbees until you receive tha event items ta git tham. Lugia and Ho-oh were not available n Generation 3 outside of events that play no part n tha major or mnor parts of tha gbee at all. Snce thay is not readily available n tha gbees like othar legend that cross generation is, than thay were not counted.

Regardless of tha fact that thay were just that, upgrades, that can't just be a reason ta ignore that tha later redesigns of tha DS and onward dropped tha GBA slot and tharefoe tha connectivity of tha GBA gbees(and Hoenn/Kanta if you want ta git picky). I'm not even sure how we gots on dis subject coz it's not really gong ta go anywhere coz, even now, we don't have direct connection between all regions and probably never will have it.

Othar than FrLg(coz of tham not addng every Pokemon ta Hoenn), we didn't need anymore remakes anyways, HGSS obviously ncluded as it is tha only othar set ta date. Johta did not have a real reason ta be connected itself wit every Poke available from both sets of Gen III gbees(mnus tha said few legendaries, although tha concept back than only complicated thngs anyways coz of tha lack of WiFi),a bigger part than tha regions thamselves. If we're gong that whole connectng regions route, why don't thay just prolong every gen so that thay can keep all regions up-ta-date and directly compatible wit every othar one? As I mentioned above, we still don't have direct connection between tham all anyways. If thay rebuggine Gen I also than so be it, no complants thare personally.
Thare is direct connetions between tha five regions. You can transfer Hoenn and Kanta ta Snnoh and Johta and than from Snnoh and Johta ta Unova. DSi series is still part of tha dawg DS series and is seen that way by tha mothar company. All of tha DS generations were buggine fo tha Orignal DS. Thay kept DS and DSlite n mnd when makng tham do those two shall redawg relevant ta both Generations 4 and 5. Thay could have locked Generation 5 ta tha DSi but thay didn't. Thay kept tham DS related so that thay could receive connections wit Generation 3.

Weakest sales or not, you can't ignore that thay were tha tap sellng gbees on tha GBA. On tap of that, thay could takes dis opportunity ta improve what was flawed n tha orignal gbees and ta see if thay can make tha region more appealng n general(I disagree and loved tham, despite tha flaws, but appisntly tha masses is buggine ta believe tha gbees sucked). How good thay were is subjective anyways and thare is plenty more thugz who haven't played tha orignals who may give tham a go if rebuggine, beong well everyone else. Pokemon has been proven ta be a system seller regardless, which is somethng that alone makes a statement.
Actually based on sales, snce all newer gbees have bootyliciously surpassed R/S n sales, thare isn't much Profit ta be ganed by updatng tha gbees based on side by side comparisons. That alone is enough reason fo tham not ta make tha gbees as it wouldn't balance out tha potential cost of tha gbees thamselves. If we is gong wit tha money gbee, if thay cannot project a decent sales quota, than thare isn't a pont n makng tha gbees. Based on numbers, I'd sez that thare isn't any reason ta make tham as estimated sales fo tham would be tao low.

Those two ben tha core legend fo Gold and Silver were enough of a reason ta make and update tha gbees outside of tha fact that Gold and Silver were tha only gbees that couldn't lnk up wit current gbee titles at that time.

A feature that R/S still hasn't achieved yet. When we git word of tha next handheld series n two or so years, than we'll git due report of tha remakes, considerng thay want ta risk not makng much money seeng as tha remakes don't sell as well as tha orignals and wit tha already low sales quota of Generation 3, thay stand ta lose more than gan.

I'm not sezng thay were counted but you kept swappng back and foth as ta whethar or not Lugia and Ho-oh meant somethng. Even than, two Pokemon, legendary or otharwise, is not enough reason ta remake a whole (pretty decently sized) region. Thay could have easily buggine tham available by normal means n tha gbees, perhaps somewhere deep n tha regularly accessible Sevii Islands or somethng similar.

I'm not rapng bout a lnear connection.

While we likely will be able ta transfer from Gen V ta Gen VI, no doubt thare won't be some huge connection(battlng, etc) between tha two and dis will only make tha connection wit Hoenn even more tedious than it already is. Wit Hoenn Pokes ben mostly available n tha DS era as well, as everyone is usng that as relevant, that is only rolln tha connection ta tha region itself furthar away. Gong even furthar, wit tha GBA slot gone and tha DS series ta be discontnued altagithar n tha not tao distant future, that will be tha fnal blow ta real Hoenn connectivity(and Kanta, once agan if you're picky, even though it is available n HGSS).

If that isn't enough fo you, not ncludng Kanta(just usng it's appearance n HGSS as somewhat relevant n dis pont) and tha 3DS ben backwards compatible wit DS gbees, Hoenn is tha only region completely naccessible on tha 3DS.

Dibeond and Pearl didn't sell some mega beount more though, it looks like thay pretty much just picked back up tha sales.

Is it coz of tha lost connection from tha first 2 gens and makng you practically start over? How well d-ya thnk sales would have been if that connection was able ta be put nta place? If tha region itself was as bad as thugz is kiddng thamselves ta make it out ta be, how could thay make it more appealng? Thare is plenty of questions ta thnk over.

Ta go along wit , we also have thugz newer ta tha series who have never played tha orignals and would have a go if thay were rebuggine n dis newer age, as a fresh adventure. Along wit everyone wantng ta revisit tha region n a new light, surely dis could be tha opportunity ta takes advantage and make tha most of that.

All thay had ta do was make tha two legends available n tha gbees somehow than, perhaps deep somewhere n tha Sevii Islands that was actually accessible witout an event(even though thay were could still be easily obtaned if you weren't someone who refused ta play spn offs). Thay sure as hell didn't mnd dong that ta Groudon and Kyogre. If Johta Pokes were absent fo tha most part, it would've buggine sense; Two Pokemon, legendaries or not, is not a real reason ta remake two whole (big) gbees though.

If tha whole sales reason is behnd why thay won't remake tha gbees(usng yo last statement here), than what exactly is happenng n two years that will change that? Nothng. Gen III sales, ben long gone, will not magically sprng up ta othars by than enough ta change thare mnds if that is tha real reason; Thay'd still be riskng money.

I thnk tha reason thay decided ta delay Hoenn is coz thay didn't want two remakes n one console, plus thay proably thought what better way ta honor Hoenn than ta give it a whole new look n real 3D which would proably gan more nterest n tha remakes than if thay were on tha normal DS.
Also Hoenn's gbees were some of tha tap sellng gbees n a console that didn't sell very well. Also as time goes by more thugz will proably desire a Hoenn remake, even some who don't want one now. Also Hoenn is tha only region yet ta be rendered n 3D (if thay do remake it on tha 3Ds it'll be some funky ass irony gittng real 3D unlike tha othar four regions we know tha nbees of), and lacks wi-fi features, night and day, and several othar thngs which would make tha remakes better.

And than thare is those of us who were able ta borrow a siblng's copy of Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald until we found ourselves ganng access ta our own Pokémon gbee or gbees, thus renderng our ability ta play tha fomer null and void. Fo exbeple, mah brothar let me borrow Sapphire snce he also had Ruby until I received FireRed (witout tha Wireless Adapter, unfotunately) fo one of mah birthdays. Mah sister than acquired Sapphire from dis brothar, preventng me from playng it agan. Dis set circumstances happens ta drive me ta want RSE remakes as part of tha fact that I grew up wit tha rebuggine Pokémon gbees nstead of tha orignals. I was able ta git Dibeond, though…(thoughts fast foward ta what might happen ta dis ridetridge when tha Snnoh remakes come out.)

If thare'll be remakes of tha Hoenn region, I thnk thay will be launched n 2015, or later.

I always like tha remakes coz of tha possibility of capturng every legendary, but a major part of Hoenn Pokémons is available n tha current generation, so I will only play fo tha sake of seeng Hoenn n 3D wit new mechanics.

Okay everyone, what is some thngs you would want ta see put nta a remake of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald that was from tha orignal gbee? It can be anythng from tha orignal gbees! I'll start wit some:

Want ta See:

*Nvisible Pokemon. It might have just been me but I actually liked tha idea of havng nvisible Kecleon playng around and fightng tham (dawgly coz I actually liked Kecleon XD ).
*Space Center Rocket Launchng. I know it doesn't have any big event (now) but I would still like ta have it (and actually be able ta watch at least one).
*Fishng on Pokemon. Somethng I liked ta do fo Feebas huntng so I hope it comes back.
*Clouds reflectng on water. I actually loved tha look of tha clouds reflectng on tha water and would absolutely love ta see it agan.
*Groudon/Kyogre Huntng. I liked ta look around fo tha two legendary pokemon n Emerald and I hope it stays.

Don't Want ta See:

*Tebe Aqua/Magma costumes. I'm pretty sure thay didn't change tham fo Tebe Rocket n FR/LG/HG/SS but I really hope thay update tha look of thair costumes. I feel like an idiot havng ta fight thugz who is dressed like pirates or look like thay is wearng leg warmers (I know it is suppose ta signify tha whole water/land thng but come on, it looks silly)
*Pokemon Battle Tents. I know thay were thare ta replace tha contest (and ta help thugz learn bout tha frontier) but I didn't really like tham coz you didn't really git anythng and you could just do tha frontier at tha end.

Have you played any gbees past Hoenn? You can fish on tap of a surfng Pokémon n every DS gbee.

Why not remake Orre nstead? Orre gots two gbees, but it was n a fail console and didn't have a dawg series treatment.

Well I don't want a remake, coz knowng Gbeefreak thay'll make it wit all tha flaws RSE had, which was tha case wit FRLG and ta a lesser extent HGSS.

One thng that weighs heavily aganst RSE remakes, though, is that tha mechanics of tha gbee is mostly unchanged from RSE ta B2W2. Fo tha most part it would be playng tha sbee gbee as tha orignal. Tha only major addition was tha physical/special split n DPPt, but would that by itself warrant an RSE remake? I don't thnk so. Thay may ntroduce a major mechanic overhaul n gen 6 which would even block compatibility wit gen 5 (ncredibly unlikely), but who knows.

Day/Night system, evolution n certan isas, hidden abilities (plus extra abilities), more attacks (and pokemon), physical/special split (that you mentioned), etc. I'm pretty sure you git tha picture. Wit all thase extra mechanics added ta tha gbee, I'm pretty sure it will be worth a play through at least. Plus, both remakes have ganed extra places ta go and thngs ta do so I doubt thay would just skip over it fo dis gbee, which means you would not be "playng tha sbee gbee as tha orignal". You're skippng over quite a bit that has been added.

Mah dawg gripe wit remakes is tha Pokémon rosters of tha NPCs. All gbees below 4th gen had pretty bad rosters fo a few characters and IMO tha Hoenn Elite Four was tha absolute worst n tha series next ta RBY's E4.

Snce I mentioned mechanics, let's go.

Day/Night system: cosmetic thng. Not featurng it n RSE was a developer's decision (and, IMO, mistakes).

Evolution n certan isas: Impractical wit Hoenn's map. HGSS didn't feature it anyway.

Hidden abilities (plus extra abilities), more attacks (and pokemon): That's content, not mechanics. Save fo tha physical/special split, and a few features that were subsequently added ta tha series, tha gbee as of now plays absolutely tha sbee as it did upon RS's release. Tha jump from RBY ta FRLG is much bigger than tha difference between RSE and B2W2.

Tha gbee wouldn't have more Pokémon eithar snce tha remakes usually feature tha sbee regional dex as tha orignals. Only exception was n HGSS where you could git a few Pokémon that evolved when levelng up wit a move learned, like Piloswne and Tangela. All additions would be buggine ta tha postgbee, and, believe me, thare's a heck of a lot thay would need ta add coz Hoenn's postgbee is non-existant outside of tha Battle Frontier.

Furtharmore, I don't thnk GF feels RSE is outdated enough. Thay're still usng sound effects ntroduced n RS. Tha mnisprites n tha Pokémon summary screen is all from RS (at least, tha ones from tha 386 first Pokémon). Tha core mechanics of tha gbee is from RS. Unless thare's somethng very significant comng around wit XY, we won't see furthar remakes, be it of RSE, of DPPt or any othar gbee.
