Starters and Key Legends (Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza) are only found in Gen 4 which is an easy transfer to Gen 5.
Was Johto itself needed into the 'connection circle' though? No it was not, especially considering we could get pretty much every Johto Poke easily(minus a very select few) in the GBA games. We can't even directly trade between every regions anyways so that goes to show that it's probably the least of our worries. There was no real reason for HGSS aside from updating the graphics/little parts of the story(which aren't really big reasons themselves) and of course, most importantly of all, the money to be made.

If we're talking looks wise, then Kanto is already up-to-date(before we go full 3D with X & Y) with the region itself being included in HGSS. Hoenn (itself) has yet to be caught up in this sense.

I agree for once. If HGSS can be made to make money for the most part, then why must RSE be shunned? As I mentioned before, just because we can catch every poke and there is no real reason did not stop HGSS being made.

I would go on to point out one thing that's wrong in that paragraph, but it would only lead to the chaos that is timeline talk, so I'll refrain from it.
Don't you think Hoenn deserves to be at least this beautiful?
