Gen 3 didn't have as many Pokemon, hold items, the physical/special split, etc.
It had the most new pokemon of any generation until 5. So unless you're talking about it needing 4th and 5th generation pokemon, which it doesn't need outside of post game, I don't think that's a legit reason. As far as hold items go, who cares. Such a small thing. The physical and special split was a pretty big deal. But it not being split also gave a lot of pokemon cool utility. Such as Gengar with the elemental punches. Is it an issue though? Minorly, sure. Not enough to constitute a remake.
Gen 3 had 386 Pokemon. There are now 649 Pokemon. This is more.
I said NEW pokemon. In their respective generations, the NEW pokemon of their generations are mostly exclusive to their respective games. Gen 3 has 135 new pokemon. Gen 4 had a laughable number, most of them legendaries and pre/evos and then gen 5 had 156 new pokemon.
There's a lot of pokemon TOTAL, but even in a remake, they would only be in postgame, you know. KINDA LIKE WHAT THEY DID IN THE OTHER REMAKES. HMMMMMMMM.
It doesn't matter. I said later games contain more Pokemon, and this is true. I never said "newer" Pokemon.
Then we need Gen I, II, and IV remakes this gen as well. There are even new hold items this gen!
I'll never understand why people say this. Sure, they'll make RSE remakes if they want money, much like FRLG and HGSS. But they also made RBY, GSC, RSE, DPP, BW and B2W2 for money...
I believe the creator started Pokemon cause he wanted to share the joy he had experienced through bug collecting. But splitting it into a pair of versions at the beginning of each generation, as well as for remakes, is mostly for more money. Trading was the best excuse they could come up with to encourage more sales, which kind of made sense outside Japan, where not everybody lives within range of someone who may have the other version.
As for the remakes, i believe FR/LG were to be a one time thing, but GF thought they could outdo themselves and expand the length of time until the next Gen with HG/SS, which, aside from money, seems to be the only logical reasons we'd get anymore remakes in the future.

Or, if they must reuse old regions, at least make new games showing said region 10+ years on with an original plot/trainers/characters/etc.
Now that we've seen B2/W2, I wouldn't be surprised if they went that route with Gen 3.
I'm actually hoping they go this route, if they decide to revisit Hoenn in the future. I'd rather see what the cast was up to and how Hoenn changed after the Weather Trio debacle than simply rehashing the previous story.
