So I know that their appearance doesn't necessarily mean anything, but I'm surprised they don't look even a little different, seeing as a few years has passed.
The artwork could very well just be filler. Giovanni, Steven, and the Hoenn leaders are due for new artwork, anyway.

We don't have any confirmed Johto leaders, either. In fact, the only confirmed leader not from Kanto is Volkner. I still think that every leader and champion will appear, though,.
