That's largely what I'd expect concept-wise. It's just the execution that I find puzzling (as with a lot of aspects of potential DP remakes). Maybe it could just be something like Battle Bond, where they don't necessarily need a held item in order to transform? But intuitively, one is much more inclined to tether their transformations to their Orbs somehow, given the past precedent, and because it is a quick and easy way of affixing a drawback to these inevitably overpowered forms.I always figured if they had "Reversion Formes" or something it would be from times before the earth or even the universe existed, and they would have incredible eldritch looking forms. Maybe something H.P. Lovecraft like, or something that somehow looks like it doesn't at all exist in the confines of reality. Maybe something that is implied to be the REAL versions of these basically gods that simply have avatars.
Edit: You know, for Arceus, I supposed they could just introduce a new "Divine Plate" or something that initiates its form change/Mega Evolution/Primal Reversion/Hyper Transcendence/whatever. Because for Arceus, that can be like the "one and true Plate, the purest among many" or some such. But it'd be odd to introduce new, superior "counterparts" to the Adamant, Lustrous, and Griseous Orbs... although on the other hand, Soul Dew vs. Latiasite/Latiosite.
