IGN makes a case for Hoenn Remake

Some highlights:

"The region itself requires a ton of surfing, which might be my least favorite Pokemon activity owing to the confusing terrain and the surplus of Tentacool. It lacks a true day/night cycle, which was inexplicably cut following the second generation. And the game's Elite 4 is also tremendously weak."

"Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire are the first two games that tried to be really "epic." Its centerpiece was the conflict between the gods of land and sea, Groudon and Kyogre, which was neat, but never found its full expression in the simple 2D graphics."

"Why on earth did Secret Bases go away? They were just the best. You could pick your own little nook in Hoenn and decorate it to your heart's content with trophies, plush dolls, and furniture. . . .This feature could be even better in the context of Pokemon X and Y, with ghost versions of trainers and Pokemon being available to challenge via StreetPass or SpotPass.

I'm not Superman, that's for sure. And I'm not Batman or Spiderman or Aquaman or a wolfman or a merman. I'm not brahman or common or ramen, either.
