This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

So it's pretty much guaranteed that we're not gonna be able to go to Hoenn?

It also means we're probably gonna get an independent RSE remake, and possibly+hopefully a FRLG remake

And why would we need a remake of a remake?

Why would Gamefreak need to milk a cash cow franchise like Pokemon even more? Because they can.

"But we've already played through that game TWICE! A re-remake would be boring and it wouldn't sell," I hear people whine.

Yes, YOU have played it twice. When (and if) Blazing Fire Red and Verdant Leaf Green comes out, it will have been about a decade since FRLG's release, and about 18 years since Red and Green's release. That means it'll feel like the first remake for people under 20-ish years old, and kids under 10-ish years old will never have played any of those games. Given Pokemon's target demographic, that's a very large chunk of the fanbase. Plus, dedicated pokemaniacs, nostalgia-chasers, and people who never had a chance to play RBY and/or FRLG would be interested as well.

By independant remake I think he's referring to an attempt like Pokemon Shiny Gold which admittedly was amazing fun.

IT won't happen, and certainly isn't likely on your timeline. Six games in 2 years? Ha, yeah, okay.

Thinking is overrated. Like Pants.

You underestimate the speed at which the franchise can be milked; Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed and LeafGreen were released within a two year period.

I didn't ask you why Game Freak needs to do anything. I'm asking you why WE, as in the pokemon community, need a remake of a remake.
