I see it the total opposite way, I love the approach the Johto games take to the Kanto region. It feels realistic, in the way that, we all have gone through so many Pokemon journeys, yet everytime "we" start a new one, we're treated like beginners or novices, in HGSS, when you arrive in Kanto, you're taking your Johto Champion title and team with you, it's got a different feel to it, I like how you start by getting off a boat in Vermillion. I wouldn't mind if they took the DLC route for some games. For example, for LGPE, I could totally see them doing a reverse of the Johto games, and instead making Johto the region that's accessible after Kanto. In fact, LGPE is actually setup perfectly to be given DLC, I mean think about it, only the first 151 Pokemon are even in the game besides Meltan, what if with Johto comes the Johto portion of the National Dex, for let's say, $20, and so on?Well, the remake route would be a lot better. I mean, I guess we would want to relive the plot events from Sinnoh on the Switch and not have Gym Leaders changed around. When you went to Kanto in GSC/HGSS there was a lack of Team Rocket (only one grunt was there to steal a machine part). You start in Vermillion City instead of Pallet Town. You don't choose between Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle until you beat Red in HGSS. In GSC, you don't get those starters at all. So I guess, when we want to go back to Sinnoh, we don't want to just revisit areas like Mt. Coronet or Jubilife City. We want to relive the experience from Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. So yeah, remake games would be a better idea than a Sinnoh DLC pack. Besides, we should be able to save up some storage memory when it's on a separate game card.
As much as I'd love to see that, I doubt it'll happen though, it's easier for them to sell a $60 game than a $20 DLC pack.
