  • Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    Honestly, I don't care if they get rid of sheen, it's an annoying and cumbersome mechanic. And not just because of feeding your pokemon the 'wrong' poffins, but it makes it incredibly difficult to win master rank in all categories with quite a few pokemon. And in ORAS, they made it too easy I...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    Yes, but a gym leader's job is to test trainers and their abilities. I doubt a trainer who has no gym badges yet would get to fight the same team as a trainer with 7 badges. So just because Volkner has the best capabilities, doesn't mean he has to fight at full strength all the time. Iirc, none...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    I think I'd prefer straight up remakes, BUT with something akin to the Celebi event in HGSS. But not locked to an event exclusive.

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    The snow and the marshlands are areas I always both love and dread. On my last playthrough of Platinum, the snow routes went a lot faster than I remembered, despite the slow pace. But it would be nice if you got a pair of snowboots or something after you arrive in Snowpoint for the first time...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    Honestly, I'm glad those are rarely a thing anymore. I just feel awkward cause in all likelihood I won't be buying anything at whatever store the promotion is. Not to mention that in older generations it meant there was a one day event in a single location, which was a two hour drive/train...

    That would be pretty cool actually! Maybe they could add some Festival Plaza/Join Avenue features too. Though I'd like it if the option would remain to play locally

    Would it though? They have to build the maps from scratch regardless and with ORAS we've seen they have no problem deviating from the grid (although it was still present)

    I hope the Super Contests get a major overhaul. Cause honestly, the dancing part and the dressing up part were kind of annoying? I wouldn't mind if they removed that (though I guess the dancing part could be made a lot more interesting with motion control)

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    they could always stuff special/non-Sinnoh pokemon in MR Backlot's Trophy Garden... I mean that's what they kinda did already anyway, so why not put in some Alolan forms there? Or other forms for that matter. Plus, if Sinnoh remakes debut in the same Gen as SuMo then they'll still be easily...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    It definitely feels to early for a Gen IV remake, even speculating might be a bit soon (but at the same time, it's fun, so why not?) Though I think the Distortion World should be included as a post-game thing, I don't think they necessarily have to bring in all the changed made in Platinum. I...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    I actually meant more along the lines of 'well, we had evidence that suggested the Hoenn people locked up the Regi's in the past in Hoenn, then moved Regigigas to Snowpoint, so it couldn't easily be awakened'. I mean, of course we got them all somewhat randomly in other games as well XD But in...

    Generation IV Remake Speculation

    Somewhat diverting from the topic, but I feel it's kinda relevant to the discussion of fan reception and inclusion/exclusion of features in remakes that's going on. Who are you guys talking about when talking about the fanbase? The people on this forum? The people on a combination of the most...
