    The following I should point out is a double edged sword. Diamond and Pearl are the 10th anniversary games. Its a double edged sword because on the one hand they would lend credence for DP remakes (didn't happen) but on the other hand it also meant that things that were created in relation to DP...

    There isn't much that could be said without spoiling both, but I will say that a certain charatcer visited Hoenn once, a certain pokemon mega evolved before Lucario and that Devon Corporation is using the energy that also fuels Mega Evolution. If DP gets similarly reinterpreted, then it might...

    Because patterns. GF could had made sequels for GSC when they decided that FRLG was a thing, but they went for the remake route, the one time they went for sequels was to their then-current games, not not an older game due to be remade, and therefore, people are likely to expect sequels for...

    I'll believe that when I see Gen 4 VC ports first.

    I wouldn't call RSE recent. ORAS yes, but not RSE. And the ship has already sailed considering we're discussing the potential remake of games where the villain already had designs on the local Legendary pokemon. Don't get me wrong, I can see how annoying the whole "Legendaries as...

    Okay now I ahve a question, regardless of when it happens, Gen 4 remakes have to consider one thing. What do do with the extra legendaries? I'll elaborate. Every remake has had a way to get every legendary that isn't found in the headlining games (though Ho-oh and Lugia had some weirdness with...

    And didn't HGSS go out of its way not to have the Sinnoh evolutions that didn't require level up (looks at Eevee)?

    I have a question, How would the Festival Plaza react to seeing players from other games in the same Generation (that would likely not have the Plaza themselves)?

    I feel there is a stark difference however. Mega Evolution are induced by the items, the pokemon could still be in both games. the Event Pichu were specimens of a species that again, could be traded between every games. Variants are well, variants of pokemon species that can still be traded...

    That makes no sense.

    That's not true. Zelda has 3 timeliens and AFAIK the opportunity to continue any of them (or make prequels). Pokemon for mechanical reasons has to go forth in any new timelines they make if it introduced mechanics like mega-evolution.

    I don't think Game Freak's decisions were always made with the metagame in mind. They created the Unown for starters, and on the opposite extreme, Mega Raquayza. While I expect the Starters to get Z-moves, Anything else is fair game. Luxray could very well get a Mega-evolution (and is this...

    Cynthia also travels a lot, including to Alola. Her promoting the Z-crystals would be well within the realm of possibility. That said, who said the trainer has to be native to Sinnoh? We had established that Aether went there for researching Arceus for Type:Null, so someone like Wicke or Faba...

    I Speculate the following things regarding obtaining the Legendary Pokemon there. First off, From Platinum the Birds, Cresellia and Mesprit were Roamers, so that will likely change because people hate the idea. Mesprit and Cresellia are easy enough since they already have associated locations...

    Such is the nature of power creep. But I don't think the Sinnoh Starters were ever used in OU or VGC, were they?

    Okay guys how do we make Raichu better? You know about that Mega Evolution we designed awhile back? Which one. The one for Tabunne Okay? We make a pancake-themed take on that, that surfs! PERFECT!

    I have to disagree with limiting regional variants exclusive to Alola, especially considering that there is only 18 Regional variants, all of which of Gen 1 mons and that geographical and environmental factors give more of a reason for regional variants to exist in other regions compared to the...

    Having Z moves like the Alola starters would had served that purpose better, especially since the mutual exclusivity (and the mutual exclusivity between Mega-evolution and regional variants) locked the Alolan starters out of Mega evolutions.

    I'd still expect Pokebank to be a thing for the Switch, but the connection is still an issue. The way i see it, converting the data would be the best bet for this but would also be a one way trip. (though given the jumps from 1 VC to bank or to 3 to 4 to 5, I expect the groundwork to had been...
