Looking at it from that world, people would freak out if a Legendary Pokemon was just walking around in the middle of the day!

I'm not sure if you're just hoping for B/W 2 to be "remakes" of B/W, but it was announced that they are supposed to have a total new story, hence them being called "sequels". Still, I doubt we will see the return of Pokemon following us.
I was saying that I know B2/W2 are sequels, but I wouldn't mind if they were just remakes. Although I doubt it will happen, I think a lot of people would enjoy the added feature, especially with a few changes (like having the option to turn it off).

Game Freak chose to limit B/W's features to make room for a new set of games. We might see it, we might not, but I think the Generation III remakes will hopefully see a return of the following Pokémon feature.
