I like how the two halves of Sinnoh have different trees in Platinum.
Never noticed the tree thing since I don't have Platinum, but that's kind of cool!

Another world building detail I also liked were all the air vents scattered around Sinnoh that connected to the underground tunnels. I'm eager to see what the Underground would be like in a remake since there's no dual screens on the Switch (or touchscreen either if you play with the switch docked).

I personally want the underground to be more than just a minigame this time around, I kind of want it to be the MMO area of the game. But since Nintendo decided to make their online service peer-to-peer, I don't see that happening since it would be too much for one Switch to handle.

I disagree. I think they're a neat world building thing, and thus should stay. It'd be really nice if some stands had bikes on them that changed every time you entered the area. Just something to make Sinnoh feel more alive and lived in.
I don't see that happening, though it would be better than to just have the stands because GF went from having roads with moving trucks in Isshu to having cars as a more decorative thing in Alola, which was sad. I'd prefer if from time to time, NPC appeared in bikes instead of just being there already.

I have a question: why does everyone always seem to use the japanese name for Unova?

Wait, Einall had moving trucks? Where? All I remember are the walking NPCs in places like Volucité...

Okay now this is ridiculous. Every other region has a consistent name but not Unova?

Unova didn't. He probably got it confused with a fangame called Pokemon: Solar Light and Lunar Dark, which does have moving vehicles in one city. Said fangame also looks like the Unova games graphics wise and most of the music used is from the Unova games.

I thought Unova had moving cars in some of the overpasses or beneath a few of the bridges; just not any of the places you could walk. None of the other regions really have that "bustling city" vibe, so I don't mind it being a Unova only thing. I always just assume our characters just stay away from the roads and special routes are made just for trainers.

That's what I always thought too.

If we ever get a remake of diamond and pearl I wonder how Dawn will look.

I would love a 4th gen remake but ideally I would prefer Platinum over Diamond and Pearl. Of course it's almost impossible because two games sell more than one. I personally loved contests and the possibility to customize the poke balls. However, some Pokemon should be more common to hatch such as combee, munchlax and feebas. And there were only one lucario and togekiss, a big problem if you think that ditto was almost no available.

If HGSS managed to include aspects from Crystal despite being Gold and Silver remakes, I don't see why a DP remake would completely ignore Platinum. The Giratina and Distortion World stuff could always be put into a Delta episode-esque postgame quest. And at the very least, I doubt we'd end up with DP's awful Pokedex because of Dexit now being a thing.

Yeah. Dexit being a thing makes me think that they are absolutely not going to use DP's 151 regional dex.
