C/D- these will be the final remakes

That's not really the reason they do remakes. They do them because they have roughly comparable sales to new games with much lower costs. The engine is built, the bulk of scenario design, dialogue and maps are done... all they have to do is create some new graphical assets to plug in, refine the UI, and add a relatively trivial amount of new content. It's a really efficient way for them to exploit the assets they built for the new generation, and it has absolutely zero to do with the old games not playing on the new consoles.

This.

I love how people forget the fact that Nintendo and as a result Game Freak are a business. Therefore, the only thing they care about is making as much money as efficiently as possible. It's not a bad thing, just a fact.
