Minor as it is, seeing the SuMo Pokemon Breeder Class looking near identical to the Belle and Pa Class from DPPT, I wouldn't be shocked at seeing them give us Remakes this gen~ :p

The order in which we face the gym leaders would probably be the same as the originals.

Mega garchomp is widely accepted to be one of the worst megas.

If that happens I demand a second mega garchomp worthy of being used by Cynthia.

So, would Sinnoh remakes still have gyms? Or, will they put in something else?

I hope so. I prefer the gym feature than trials (haven't played them yet, but the concept doesn't attract me a lot). They could make a fusion between them, with tasks to do instead of the traditional puzzles and in the end you fight the leader.

What I really would like is to have the gym battle adapt to your progression. Instead of having some leaders with 2 Pokémon and you going in with 6, overleveled, we could have a trigger that set the leader's Pokémon and their level to adapt to yours. Maybe all 3v3 solo battles? Maybe we could only "subscribe" Pokémon who passed a criteria?

If Gyms return, they should really be different than the Gyms of the past. Trials really were a breath of fresh air after 20 years of the same old, same old.
No they won't. DP remakes would stick to the originals when it comes to gyms. They are not going to change that format.

OFC they'd still have Gyms~ Why wouldn't they? ORAS kept the Poke Marts separate from Pokemon Centers despite them being combined since BW and the E4 was traversed in the same linear order as the originals~ What logical reason would they have to not have Gyms where Sinnoh has established canonical Gyms?

Alternately, they'll bring in the Platinum/HGSS school of thought and design the Gyms with some sort of gimmick to get to the Gym Leader, but in a similar vein to the Sun and Moon trials. That good, are we good?

The Gen IV remake might not have gyms. I actually came up with ideas for Trials in the Sinnoh region.

Since Sun and Moon were such different games, perhaps the DP remakes could end up something close to a re-imagining rather than a remake. Being less loyal to the original but adding a lot more in terms of content, especially considering the increase in focus on the plot within Gen 7 so far. I think this could actually be a good thing.

Also, I feel like I'm the only one who noticed the parallels between the final boss/plot of the Delta Episode and the plot of 'Red' and 'Blue' Rescue Team.
When during the end of the game, the final boss (who is Rayquaza) has to be convinced by the player to save the world from a falling meteorite.
Also, interestingly enough, the last boss in the post game, is Deoxys found where Rayquaza destroyed the star.

Perhaps something, if vaguely similar to the end of 'Time', 'Sky' and 'Darkness'.
Which would make the final legendary in the post-game of the DP remakes, Darkrai. Not sure if it makes more or less sense than Arceus.


Perhaps it's just a coincidence and I'm looking too much into it, but it might be nice to see.

I don't think it's a coincidence exactly - I don't know if it was an original concept for RB Rescue Team, or if they simply lifted the idea from the opening of Destiny Deoxys, but either way, those portrayals together did set up a recognizable, easily-integrated pattern for ORAS to use. But I think ORAS's main goal was just to get us into space to fight Deoxys in order to canonize the old playground rumors, so the scene would likely have taken a similar form even without the preceding examples.

So, unless DP remakes specifically want to do something with Darkrai in-game, then there's not much of a reason to draw from PMD:TDS in that fashion.

That being said, I certainly don't think I'd mind an interconnected plot involving the Sinnoh dragons, Arceus, and perhaps a more villainous Darkrai.

I know they'll stick with the old formats in Gen 4 remake, but I hope they don't bring back HMs and keep Pokeride in the game, because HMs are a pain in the butt, they're a couple of thing they'll bring back from sun and moon and from previous games

Sorry but trials are not going to happen DP remakes. There is a reason remakes are called remakes. They are going to stick to the gyms because they are part of the original games. ORAS and FRLG never replace the gyms so neither will DP remakes.

They'll stick with the old formats from the original games, they'll probably bring new mechanics from sun and moon, it wouldn't make since if they have Trials in DP remake, So ?I agree with you on this one.

They're called "The Island Trials" and "The Alola Challenge" for a reason, LOL, Sinnoh is not going to have Island Trials. They have Gyms, they have Gym Leaders, this is a fact. Why would they put trials on Sinnoh when they're pretty very obviously specific to Alola?
