But when seeing every Pokémon in the Sinnoh Dex is a requirement to get the National Dex, it may be good to have a lot of common Pokémon to make sure the player don't miss them. The only reason I want the Sinnoh Dex expanded is to include the following Legendary Pokémon: Heatran, Regigigas, Cresselia, Phione, Darkrai, Shaymin and Arceus. They are the only Pokémon who are still left out of their regional Pokédex. The Sinnoh Dex has got to include all the Pokémon native to the region. Platinum did a great job of getting the new evolutions into the Sinnoh Dex when Diamond and Pearl left out Gliscor, Probopass, Gallade, Lickilicky, Leafeon, Glaceon, Togekiss, Magnezone, Tangrowth, Yanmega, Rhyperior, Dusknoir, Porygon-Z, Electivire, Magmortar, Mamoswine, and Frosslass and even added Rotom and Giratina. Diamond and Pearl had 26 new Pokémon missing from the Sinnoh Dex, and now after Platinum there's only 7 left. And yes, I would like a free Arceus caught in the main story to make the Sinnoh Pokédex completion goal well worth the National Dex.Which has been a problem in remakes as the older dexes have had multiple variety issues and adding in newer Pokemon to the main game would fix those issues and in general make the experience more fresh and interesting. Honestly though, Sinnoh's problem isn't so much that it needs more Pokemon. The problem is more how they choose to distribute the existing Pokemon. There's certain lines that you see pretty much everywhere, even beyond the usual suspects. Even stuff like Budew/Roselia, Meditite/Medicham, Ponyta, and Onix/Steelix appear all over the place, and you'd be hard pressed to find an area in the game that doesn't have one of those or some of the other annoyers. They can make the region feel more diverse just by trimming some of those Pokemon down. But I certainly wouldn't turn down another expansion, Sinnoh is big enough that it could hold a dex twice as big as it is.
