Not to mention he’s currently traveling the world so nothing is stopping him from going back to Sinnoh to get them.
We didn't originally get to see Ash participate in the Pokéathlon when he was in the Johto region either, yet they retconned both Ash and Brock knowing about it in the Johto Festival arc of the Sinnoh Anime. Having to retcon in something that didn't exist in the games beforehand isn't really a problem for the Anime given that happened.I don't like the idea of regional forms in Sinnoh. Ash never got to see regional forms when he was in Sinnoh, so why should they be suddenly introduced now? Pokémon can be Mega Evolved anywhere so the new Mega Evolutions in Hoenn were okay.
I mean it kinda makes sense to me, if you think of manufactured pearls which are the nice, clean, spherical ones. Picture a sphere, and it just goes round and round without ever hitting a definitive edge... it's kind of "infinite," in a way.but how can a pearl be infinite?
It's always more of a thematic thing with these remake titles. ORAS gestured at the end/beginning dichotomy a few times in-narrative. Archie talks about using Kyogre to "return the world to its beginnings" because life originated from the sea I guess, while Maxie mentions using Groudon to bring the existing order to an end. The letter that Zinnia leaves behind for the player after the Delta Episode also spits some platitude about ends and beginnings.Did Omega and Alpha actually have anything to do with ORAS other than just happening to be on the primal forms?
Yeah, I think it's mostly a neat little cultural detail that really gets blown out of proportion.I find the Shinto connection interesting but it feels slightly flimsy like the theory of the Kalos legends being connected to Norse mythology.
Sure, although "Breath of the Wild" works as another example of what's on my mind - I just wanted to go with the obvious dualism one. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! & Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! are already an in-series example of remakes using a different name format, but I think that styling is a little more indicative of them being a side-thing.You mean that time Zelda tried to be Pokemon.
Same reason why Ash retravelled through Kanto and there were suddenly Hoenn Pokemon there.I don't like the idea of regional forms in Sinnoh.

If it looks like Let's Go, then it would be amazing. If it looks like Sword and Shield, then I likely won't get it. I don't really care about the rest, but I won't get a game that looks as bad as SWSH did.
I wouldn’t mind that derailment, but I absolutely loved OoA and OoS!Well, they did more than Pokémon ever did with version opposites, although almost by accident (OoA was supposed to be a Zelda 1 remake). I could go into more detail but I would derail the thread...
Speaking of which, one of my pipe dreams for hypothetical remakes is that they'll give Porygon-Z an alternate form, or a new gimmick, or a character heavily associated with it, just so there'll be a disturbance in OLM studios.Why should it matter what Ash sees and does not see?
I'd also like to see Porygon-Z get a new form. It would make sense, because Porygon is a manmade Pokemon that can be continually upgraded. Perhaps Porygon2 could also one day get an alternative evolution called Porygon3, which doesn't have any programming errors. It's a fascinating evolution family with so much potential.Speaking of which, one of my pipe dreams for hypothetical remakes is that they'll give Porygon-Z an alternate form, or a new gimmick, or a character heavily associated with it, just so there'll be a disturbance in OLM studios.
