Just so we're on the same page... how do you define a "port"?Although that makes sense, making a special edition instead of a port would be more experimental. Gen 5 came out only a few months before the 3DS was released. By that logic, why didn't we see Black 2 and White 2 (or even a 'Pokemon Grey') on the 3DS? It seemed as if they wanted to wait before trying to make a new game for the 3DS. (I'll exclude Gates of Infinity, since it was both the final game of the gen, and not a main series game). A straight port would make a little more sense in the possibility it is somewhat 'safer'. Plus, we aren't sure how compatible the 3DS and the Switch will be, if they have very little compatibility with the 3DS, again, a simple port would work better.
It's also true that a simple port might not be seen as a 'mainline' game. (It could also be safer to just release DP remakes Jan/Feb of 2018? Maybe?)
I guess if Stars is a totally new game, perhaps the DP remakes will get one version for the Switch, and then another for the 3DS. Kind of like PMD1, with one release version for the game boy, and one for the DS. I can't see this being the best option though.
