I wonder if they'll actually introduce new Megas when it has been restricted to the post game this time. I know that it's to give more focus on Z-Moves and possibly Alolan Forms. But to not even introduce at least one or two seems to me that they are done with Megas.

Mega evolution is better than region forms. I rather see DP remakes have mega evolution over region forms.
Why not both? I think it would be cool to see Sinnoh variants for pokemon from the 5th or 6th generation. In addition I hope that DP remakes will be the games that FINALLY give us a mega milotic and mega Flygon.

It would be cool to see sinnoh forms, bu i don't know if they'll bring back new megas in Gen 4 remake, because in XY megas were introduced and Gamefreak decide to make more megaa in ORAs, but since we're not getting any new megas in sun and moon, then i don't think we'll get new megas in DP remake. See gamefreak like to follow a pattern of the new mechanic that was introduced in the new gen (For example Mega evolution was introduced in XY and follow up to ORAS, which Primal Reversion). We likely have another mechanic that follows up on Z-moves, maybe it changes forms while having a z-move

A minor thought, what if like ORAS we encounter one of the Gen IV Mythical Pokemon, like Darkrai or Arceus, maybe even obtaining a Manaphy egg

Maybe but I have a feeling that Deoxys was a one time thing. I prefer either Darkrai or Arceus made available since they are connected with legendary pokemon that is already obtainable.

True, and if they did add the Harbor Inn on the remakes then it would be wise to add Darkai without the need of an event, or even Arceus if they're making the Spear Pillar like in Gen IV, albeit only accessible in the post-game for both cases or before challenging the Elite Four, but who knows

I'd want Arceus, Darkrai and Shaymin. Why not all the Gen 4 mythicals? :p

There's a couple of event legendaries I could see them adding to the actual game since they're all related to in game locations, but I don't think they'd give us all of them, that'd be overkill. If I had to pick one, I'd go Arceus since it's directly related to the mascot legendaries.

Right now, I'm hoping for a Gen 4 remake. There's so much we can do in Sinnoh.

Well I don't know if they'll bring new megas in DP remakes, so we probably have something that relates to z-moves and megas, like primal reversion relates to mega evolution
No thank you. The way the mechanics are at the moment is just right. I don't want something like Z-Forms which would be too similar to Megas anyway.

That was just uncalled for. They are allowed to make predictions if they want. Prediction and story are two different things.

My Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake Prediction and Speculation
  • Generation 4 Remakes comes out in Gen 7, in 2017, on Nintendo 3DS
  • Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake will be the sequel from Pokemon Sun and Moon
  • Same Graphics from Pokemon Sun and Moon will be on Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake
  • The Following Pokemon will get new Mega Evolution: Flygon, Milotic, Weavile, Luxray, Roserade, Rhyperior, Froslass, Floatzel, Mismagius, Drapion, Hippowdon, and Giratina
  • Dialga and Palkia can now undergo a new transformation process similar to Primal Reversion called Ascension, which changes them into their Ascended Dialga and Ascended Palkia respectively. The Adamant Orb and Lustrous Orb are the keys to the Ascension of these Pokemon.
  • New Exclusive Z-moves for The Sinnoh Starters, Johto Starters, Pikachu, Raichu, and more
  • Not only we get new Z-move, but Z-forms will be introduced, Z-Forms acts similar to Mega Evolution, before you use Z-moves, it'll changes the pokemons formes that resembles you (just like Ash-greninja), if the pokemon takes damage you'll take damage too, but if the pokemon faint you'll automatically lose the battle.
  • Pokemon who are getting Z-Forms: Exclusive to Sinnoh Starter, Johto Starters, Uonva Starters Chesnaught, and Delphox,
  • New Forms Changes called Sinnoh Forms
  • Same Stat Trainer use their Signature Pokemon from Diamond/Pearl with Diamond/Pearl or Platinum level when you encounter them and Tag along with you. For Example Cheryl’s Chansey Lv 15 or Lv 20, Mira’s Kadabra Lv 18 or Lv 26, Riley’ Lucario Lv 41, Marley’s Arcanine Lv 59, and Buck’s Claydol Lv 63.
  • Giratina has two Mega Evolutions: one for Altered Forme (A) and one for Origin Forme (O). Like Rayquaza, Giratina has no Mega Stone and must instead know a new signature move to Mega Evolve and certain story condition must be met.
  • You obtain your Key Stone in Celestic Town after you defeat Team Galactic Leader Cyrus
  • Your Rivals have the combination of Diamond/Pearl and Platinum team depending on what starter pokemon you choose. In Platinum, as soon you have choose your starter and Barry choose his starter that is stronger than yours, he will jump right into battle from the start, it'll happen the same way like it did Platinum in D/P Remake. New rival battle at Eterna City and Veilstone City before or after you get a gym badge
  • The game features move tutors who teach certain moves to Pokemon (the elemental punches, Signal Beam, Superpower, etc.) in exchange for colored shards. Instead of being scattered around Sinnoh like in Platinum, all of the tutors are now located in Veilstone City i the building that sued to be a Game Corner
  • After Teaming up with Cheryl, Mira, Riley Marley, and Buck, you can call them on the Poketch at anytime to team up with them
  • After Sun and Moon, the Trial are still in Gen 4 Remake, but the Trial captains are Gym Leaders. You have to do a Trial first, once you complete the Trial, you have to challenge the Gym Leaders. Once you beat the gym leader, you'll obtain a trial completion and a gym badge.
  • The Gym leaders are fought in the same order as in D/P. Each Gym Leader has the same team as in D/P and Platinum team except for Fantina (who instead has her D/P team), Byron (who has his Platinum team), Candice (which has her Platinum team) and Volkner (who has his Platinum Team).
  • When you battle the Elite 4 for the first time, They be fought using the Platinum Team with Diamond/Pearl Level by their signature pokemon from D/P (Aaron's Drapion, Bertha's Hippowdon, Flint's Infernape, and Lucian's Bronzong)
  • Cynthia uses her Team from D/P, but now her Garchomp can Mega Evolve, but when you rematch her, she'll uses her team from Platinum.
  • After the Elite 4 and Cynthia are defeated, The Platinum Episode begins. The Platinum Episode is a post-game mission with a new story featuring, Team Galactic, Team Galactic Leader Cyrus, Zinnia returns and involve in the story, Giratina, Turnback Cave, The Distortion World, and Arceus. Arceus can be caught at the end of the episode
  • Before you take on Dialga/Palkia, you have to face against Cyrus, but he'll be using his team from D/P. In the final battle against cyrus (at the Distortion World), he has his platinum Team, but now his Weavile can Mega Evolve, he also will have a Full Team instead of 5 pokemon.
  • After the Platinum Episode, the Elite 4 and Champion Cynthia can be rematched with a higher-leveled teams of six. Elite 4 changes their signature pokemon (Aaron's Drapion, Bertha's Rhyperior, Flint's Magmortar, and Lucian's Gallade)
  • In the Main Story, a trainer in Hearthome City gives you a happiny egg as in D/P. In the platinum episode, Cynthia gives you a Togepi egg.
  • After the Platinum episode, there's a new Battle Facility that replaces the Battle Frontier.
  • The Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake Post-game Story (Commander Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Charon, and the remaining Team Galactic has set out to Stark Mountain, to capture Heatran, Side Story involving Darkrai and Cresselia without the Special Distribution items, and The Looker Side Story)
  • Catch the remaining legendary Pokemon (depending on what version you have), by encounter in Hoopa's Rings, the same way they did it in Pokemon OrAs in the Post-game
  • No Hms, Poke Rides is still a thing
  • Bikes are back
  • Seasons return in the game
  • Once you arrive at the Fight Area, you'll tag team with your rival to defeat Volkner and Flint
  • After you have obtained the National Dex (which mean National Dex are back) and fought your way to the Survival Area, you will discover that your rival is there, hanging out in front of the Battleground. Like in Diamond and Pearl, he will be willing to have a battle against you, but only on weekend. His pokemon start up at the same levels as the people in the battleground. However, they will be get at a higher level when you challenge the Elite 4 and Champion 10 to 20 times
  • You can access the Snowpoint Temple after your defeat the Elite 4. Here you can catch a level 50 Regigigas. After obtainining regigigas, you can access the caves where Regirock, Regice, and Registeel can be encountered
  • Fantina's Gyms should keep her gym design from Platinum
  • The regional pokedex features all pokemons from platinum, but still have pokemon exclusives from diamond/pearl, plus sylveon and all non-mythic native to sinnoh
  • Poke Ball Seals are back, and there are more of them.
  • The Explorer's Kit and the Sinnoh Undeground are back. You can create a secret base in the Underground like before. Players can now interact with each other in the Underground via Wi-Fi. Special digging spots, sphere venders with rare items, and other players' secret bases can be unlocked via StreetPass. Certain Mega Stones from earlier games, such as Aerodactylite, can be obtained by digging in the Underground
  • Sinnoh's Climate is the same all around as it is in Diamond &Pearl. However, during the Platinum Episode, snow falls from the sky in southwest Sinnoh, including Twinleaf Town and nearby routes. Furthermore, the sun shines harshly in northeas Sinnoh, including the new Battle Facility. Battles that occur in the formers area during the Platinum Episode feature hail and those in the latter area feature harsh Sunlight
  • Taking Kyurem to Celestic Town ad speaking with Cynthia's grandmother will award the player the DNA Splicer, allowing them to fuse Kyurem with Zekrom or Reshiram to from Black/White Kyurem
  • After Capturing Zekrom/Reshiram, N will challenge the player to battle
  • The outfit that Lucas and Dawn start with are based on the outfits they wear in Diamond and Pearl. At the beginning of the Platinum Episode, your mother buys you a new outfit in response to the drop in temperature. The new outfits received are based on the ones Lucas and Dawn wear in Platinum. From that point onward, you can switch between the old and new outfits at anytime by visiting you house.
  • Jukebox will be on the game, you'll be able to listen to every music from the game
So What do you think, If you have a better prediction, comment that below. Only talk about Diamond and Pearl Remake stuff

That looks good. I can see some of this happening.
