I'm not opposed to changing it outright (Spiritomb is nowhere near as unique as it once was), but at the bare minimum I think this one just needs to be tweaked a bit - multiplayer interaction is far more manageable now than it was back then.
Except there's always that time when they shut down the servers. I would prefer something that doesn't involve online just to be safe.

Yo, hang on, Sinnoh has one of the best soundtracks
I cannot recall a single tune off the top of my head besides Sunyshore City and Looker’s theme. The rest is just a static of bassline.

Tying the acquisition of a Pokémon to multiplayer interaction at all is something I’m opposed to. It punished players who, for whatever reason, cannot manage the requirements (either because they don’t like playing Pokémon multiplayer or because they just aren’t able to), and I don’t think that’s fair.

The ones that come to my mind are the Galactic Battle Theme, the Intro Theme, Route 207, Route 225, and both of Cynthia's themes

How can anyone forget Dialga and Palkia's theme? While it isn't intimidating like Giratina's or Arceus's theme, it still has that feeling that you're facing literal gods of time and space. Heck, that's even one of the possible themes that can be heard in Smash Bros.

I swear to God I can't even remember a single chord from that theme. The only pieces that come to mind when I think about them are Route 209 and Cynthia's theme.

Route 209 is the best route theme in all of pokemon.
Also the mount coronet upper levels theme.

Honestly DPPt has probably my favorite soundtrack in the series. I'm also a huge sucker for RSE, HGSS, and BW/B2W2 but daaamn the piano and electric keyboard stuff in DPPt just gets me. It's so chill.

On one hand, I absolutely cannot wait for DP remakes and am really looking forward to them eventually happening. While DP fell short for me in several respects, Platinum fixed most of their problems and is a fantastic game. I'd love to relive them in the new age, from their updated graphics/battle system to a remixed soundtrack.

However, on the other hand... I'm really worried that the remakes won't live up to my expectations/hopes. GameFreak has not impressed me much in quite a while and I really hope DP remakes aren't letdowns (ORAS, for example, I thought was probably the weakest remake they've done).

True. These potential Sinnoh hints I've been seeing have just been a bit confusing...
People were looking for Hoenn hints during Generation 5, so maybe they’re just foreshadowing in advance.

The games might end up having elements which tie in with Sinnoh.

Plus it works in GameFreak’s favour of churning out nostalgia since the people with Sinnoh as their first games are teens and adults now.

Would it be wrong to expect a Gen 8 game with Sinnoh as the post-game?
Well, if most rumors are to be believed, chances are that the Gen 8 region will be somewhere in Western Europe (meaning it's real-life counterpart is one of France's neighbors), which means that there are higher chances for them to turn Kalos into the post-game region than a region based on Japan.

Kalos could honestly benefit from something like that.
