Ah, okay. I personally liked the roster for the Elite Four but I do see what you mean. Well, didn't they make it where you could re-fight gym leaders/elite four and their roster would be updated (or, in black2/white2, have that huge tournament)? Gamefreak usually moves such features overs since they're quite popular

Unless there's something very significant coming around with XY, we won't see further remakes, be it of RSE, of DPPt or any other game.
Seeing as I doubt Gamefreak is just going to surprise us all and give us a remake over the next 7 months, I'm pretty sure that with just the graphics for X/Y, people will be clamoring for a remake in them (especially if the look sticks). We don't really need some revolutionary new way in game play to make a RSE remake (at least that's my personal opinion).
