@Morningstar I wasn't referring to RSE specifically, but I liked how Sun and Moon made the legendaries feel important again. Unfortunately, since the Tapu are never called legendaries in-game, it only makes Solgaleo and Lunala being called legendaries stand out more.

I hope Sinnoh remake will be something like Platinum. The pokedex, The Giratina and Arceus Story, The Battle Frontier, Gym Leader Rematches, Team Galactic Post-story. Elite Four and Champion Rematch or they could do a Platinum remake instead (Which I doubt it). Tbh, I don't know how they'll pull off the Sinnoh remake, because DP have some problems, but it was fixed in Platinum, GF always remake the originals and they don't touch the Third Games. I don't know how they'll pull it off with Sinnoh

Yes since it's obvious now how the future will go, Sinnoh definitely comes in either 2019 or 2020 depending when Gen VIII comes out and if there's a gap in between.

God hopefully only two years more.

I can't say I'm all too interested in Sinnoh being remade just yet. Platinum to me is still a solid game without a-lot of problems, and the game mechanics are close enough to where we are today that it doesn't feel terribly dated to me. I think it should have a bit more time to age. Maybe next gen.

DP remakes would be enjoyable on the Switch! I'd like to see story ties to Alola, Mega Sinnoh and Johto Starters, and a revamped Distortion world!

Though I'd prefer sequels to remakes, I'll not complain, whichever we get, as long as it's Sinnoh.

That hinges on whether or not they want two generations for Switch, or alternatively (which is more likely), if the system is going to outlive the 3DS.

But three HD regions in a row sound very unlikely. That's why I am done expecting anything truly interesting.

After GS was announced to be coming to the Virtual Console, I now believe GF won't remake any games anymore, and instead port them over to the VC.

They said themselves in an interview about the Virtual Console games that they are still interested in making remakes. According to them, the VC ports are not replacing remakes.
