What are your expectations? The same as DPPt but with QoL adjustments (wifi, etc)? What would you like to see?

I'm not expecting a lot of drastic changes, just wifi capability and expanded secret bases akin to ORAS (bring back Blissey bases!), but that's about it. I wouldn't mind a reworked Odd Keystone sidequest to make it more convenient to capture Spiritomb.

As someone who always loathed the Sinnoh bases as a literal pale imitation of the vibrant Hoenn bases, the screenshots so far suggest a much more atmospheric environment. I'm resigned to the fact that we're likely to be stuck in caves again, but at least they'll be far prettier caves.

Yeah, i also always saw Sinnoh's secret bases as a big downgrade from Hoenn's secret bases. I'm hoping they add stuff like vegetation and other stuff to make the secret bases and really the whole Underground have more variety than just brown caves and brown corridors..

I hope they expand on it. Like RSE/ORAS secret bases were good, I hope they build on that
 
Someone. Maybe.

I never really played with the Underground much as a kid, so it's a bit hard to say for sure what to expect, but I am kinda excited to actually play around with it in the remakes. I'm expecting QOL updates and for connecting to players around the world to be fairly easy. Maybe making it possible to get more items (exp. candies maybe?) through the mining mini games and whatnot.

I miss secret bases so I am looking forward to those returning. Hopefully they update those like others said because I remember I really didn't enjoy them as much as I did in Hoenn.

I would like for the drop/discover rates of items to be increased - finding spheres over and over turned me off from the feature as a kid. That or allow players to exchange spheres for evolutionary stones, plates, fossils, etc.
IIRC, things get better in the post-game... Well, either that or I just didn't have good luck playing there before the League.

I'm expecting the Underground to be pretty much the same as in the originals, but with the online functionality of the Switch it should be a vastly superior experience overall.

Also, if they carry over the ability to make your Secret Base into your own pseudo-Gym from ORAS, then that'll be another huge plus IMO.
