Black 2 and White 2 = Gen 3 remakes?

It'd be for the better if they hold off on R/S remakes until next Gen.

GF should've waited until 4th Gen to remake Kanto.

Nope. Then again I don't think they'll ever be RS remakes...

Why not? D=


Because Gens I and II were so far removed from those that came later that they kinda had to make them.

Gen III doesn't really have that problem due to Gen IV [particularly HGSS].

And whilst I personally thought RSE were cool, the general consensus was that they sucked. It's only in recent years that opinion has seemed to have flipped... I just think Nintendo won't see RSE selling anywhere near HGSS did. -shrugs-

Would I object if they did come? Course not [especially since Gen III is my weakest collection so far in Black, due to me not getting HG].

You do realize going to anywhere but Unova would require massive recoding of the lands and adding in ability for Gen. IV and V pokemon to appear along with new attacks, items, etc.? Only 2 that'd not need too much work are Johto and Kanto since they're already DS'd through HeartGold/SoulSilver.

Hoenn however would need a total facelift. So at that point it becomes, why not just make full R/S remakes and make $40 off each copy sold rather than delay B2/W2 and make significantly less money? You notice how fast B2/W2 are being pushed out to release. That'd not be the case if we were to travel outside of Unova's borders.

I expect B/W II are just the "third game"...except there are two of them. We'll see the gen 3 remakes in about two years, if the pattern holds and I expect it will. It's possible they'll hold off 'till gen 6 for the gen 3 remakes but...well I'd be a bit surprised to be honest.


The pattern you're claiming this follows doesn't exist. If they release RSE remakes in 2 years, that would extend generation 5 to 5 years, longer than any previous generation. Further it would push the first true 3DS Pokemon games way off into 2015, 4 years after the launch of 3DS. This won't happen.

The "pattern" you claim is as follows

Generation III
Ruby / Sapphire - 2002
Fire Red / Leaf Green - 2004
Emerald - 2005

four year generation with remakes two years after RS

Generation IV
Diamond / Pearl - 2006
Platinum - 2008
Heart Gold / Soul Silver - 2009

four year generation with remakes at the end following Platinum

Generation V
Black / White - 2010
Black 2 / White 2 - 2012

If there was a pattern, it would put remakes in 2013. This is not very likely however, as the first 3DS Pokemon games will almost certainly be a new generation. Everything in Gen. 5 from the anime to the waiting time for the games is quicker. It's another 3 year generation like 1 and 2 so that the first 3DS Pokemon games, generation 6, will be released about 2 years after the launch of the system. This is the same time frame as the release of RS relative to GBA and the release of DP to the launch of DS. Three or four years for a real original 3DS Pokemon game is too long.

Yeah, Black and White 2 means Ruby and Sapphire remakes....
/sarcasm

The blue and red bolts on the covers are relating to Reshiram's and Zekrom's detail colours.

Anyone who thinks these will be R/S remakes just because the logos have red and blue in them is desperately grasping at straws.

Honestly though, you have to give them that. D/P or Platinum had the Poke Ball mat in the Poke Center as Gold and Silver, and look what came out later that same generation.

Im not saying that we wont get R/S remakes, Im almost certain we will. I'm saying that THESE games aren't remakes.
