So, these games as they are, they mentioned if they were successful, they might consider doing similar mechanics for other regions.

But going by that, would you like it if they made sequels for the other regions, like Johto, or Hoenn? Would you play these style of games more if they were set place upon your favourite regions?

If it keeps the kiddie stuff out of the main games then yes.
Oh never thought of this. If the main series can feel less kiddy now I fully support LG. Having a full on less kiddy pokemon game would be very nice since the last Gen that did not feel full on kiddy was Gen V.

LGPE should have been Kanto + Johto or a reverse GSC from the start. Namely for the first half of the game in Kanto, its modeled after Yellow and the 2nd half(with a few minor changes to its respective Elite Four), are modeled after Crystal(since Gold and Silver have HG/SS). That way you'd have the first 251 Pokemon and more "end-game" content to do such as challenging the Johto Gyms and its respective Elite Four with its Champion not being Lance but "Gold". You'd add in Silver and Crystal(aka Kris) just as they did Red, Green and Blue for Kanto.

Honestly yes, I've just exited Rock Tunnel in Let's Go, Pikachu and I am already wanting another Let's Go game. It's such a comfy game, that Johto would be perfect for the next Let's Go installment. All they need to do is keep the SAME graphics as Let's Go, Pikachu and Eevee have, make post-game Kanto bigger and keep the Japanese aesthetic that HG/SS had.

Playing Let's Go, Pikachu has made Kanto feel new once again.

Yes... if there were improvements. LGPE were alright enough but they severely lacked postgame content and sidegame stuff, for instance. While I love Johto, a LG title set there would look so much worse than HGSS because those games were overflowing with things to do. Pokewalker included with the game, pokeathlon, gym leader rematches, safari zone, new routes, all of Kanto without any gimping, battle frontier...

Yes, very much so 100% yes I would. I love Johto, and when I was finished playing Let's Go Kanto all I could think about was how much I REALLY wanted to play that style again (overworld pokemon, amazing graphics), but in Johto.

I'm stoked for Sword and Shield, but Lets Go Johto would be a fantastic addition as well.

On the bright side, maybe with a Let's Go, Johto, they might be able to keep the LGPE Kanto, rather than shrinking Kanto.

i'd love that, honestly. i would personally prefer that they just expand on what we've already got (ie. adding in dlc and/or the ability to send in later gen pokemon from go or smth) but i'd definitely play a let's go version of johto.
vacation? what's that?

It will be Gold and Silver's 20th anniversary in November. I know it's not likely because we have Sword and Shield on the way, but it would be nice if they could get a little smidgeon of something, instead of just more gen 1 everywhere. Even if not in time for any anniversaries (as Masuda stated in an interview LGPE's alignment with Yellow's anniversary was coincidental), I'd still like to see a LG for gen 2. The idea that LGPE allows the people who started with gen 1 now experience Pokémon "for the first time again" but with their new families, like a spouse and child(ren), is cute, but it would be nice if people who started with other gens got that chance, too.

I think it's quite likely that we'll get Let's Go! Johto, really. I don't think Game Freak/The Pokémon Company are the type to come up with a new concept and then drop it after one set of games (they remade Red and Green, and then they remade Gold and Silver, and then they remade Ruby and Sapphire...). And since all Pokémon games are on the Switch now, it's not unlikely that we'll get a lot of games for the system. And It's been about 10 years since Heart Gold and Soul Silver, and that itself marked 10 years since the original games were released... 20th anniversary, like you say, Rivvon. Maybe they could announce it this year at least?

Eh, Game Freak both reuse things like you said and also remove things to try out new concepts - namely features. See Pokenav, hidden grottos, the underground...

True, but they're small changes/additions compared to the entire concept of the game/of a remake. I think that because they're clearly open to remaking games, and are open to a more casual style of play typified by Let's Go and Pokémon Go itself, I doubt they'll stop there - I think we'll get Johto versions. Plus, Pikachu and Eevee sold well, and Junichi Masuda spoke about there being more games in the series if the Kanto versions were well received, so...

Fair enough with them being small things relative to concept of remakes.

The question is, did LGPE really sell well enough? They went down decently but last I recall Japan specific sales weren't noteable, certainly compared to a few other Switch titles (when considering how Pokemon typically does on a system - has multiple entries in the top 10 I wager for the 3DS software list). If Sword and Shield blow them out of the water, they may think twice about a Let's Go styled remake... depending on the amount of effort required and their other projects (e.g. Town).

Hmm, I think they did sell well, though I agree that if Sword and Shield came out and sold outrageously well, then they might think twice about more remakes. And they do have Town and other projects going on. But after Sword and Shield are released, Let's Go Johto would be a good way of tiding players over until Sword and Shield 2/Generation 9, so it would make sense from that perspective, I think.
