Well it could easily be a hint towards potential remakes. I mean the Rocket grunt was there because they wanted to show the player that he was from Unova, and it was a fun little reference. The fact that he was replaced by Team Aqua/Magma grunts who were married is... well, it's SOMETHING (I'm not sure if they're actually married or whatever, but that's what I'd read somewhere).

I'm hopeful that there will be remakes, although I'm curious as to how they could be executed. For one thing, B2W2 have pushed the timeline along another two years, and the general consensus is that about 5 years (give or take) passed between the 4th gen games and the 5th gen games. Which would mean that B2W2 took place about 7ish years after RSE/FRLG (which are believed to take place in the same timeline).
B2W2 spoiler coming here, so be careful!
And even though the Hoenn leaders/Champions appear in the World Tournament, they didn't recieve redesigns at all, which is strange, considering how many years passed. I know that's the same for all the other region's Gym Leaders, but still.

So with that in mind, while there have been hints towards remakes, there are a few things going against it too, which is a little disheartening. Perhaps they're just going to just go nuts and bring them out for 3DS or something, rather than including them within this Generation.

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!
