Yeah, only eleven different lines to choose from if you want your first Surfer. Then immediately after surfing for the first time, you gain access to four more.

They didn't bring back Misty for HGSS or FRLG- Seems unlikely.



A cameo, on the other hand. That could happen. (Again.)

They will very probably show up in some form, whether they visit Kalos and travel alongside Ash for some time or whether they only appear in a Hoenn promotional video that Ash & Co. watch on a television screen.

Given that the anime seems to be stepping up the idea of a legitimate canon ship between Ash and Serena (XY026 can't come soon enough! ), one fun result of a May cameo would be getting to see how the two girls interact. I never really felt Ash x Misty, but Ash x May I felt somewhat from the limited exposure to the Hoenn anime I've had. Long-time fans tell me that May x Drew is all but canon, but regardless I think it'll be fun to see how Serena reacts to May's shows of intimacy/familiarity with Ash and how May likewise reacts to Serena's obvious feelings for Ash.

While I'd like to think that the anime would take this opportunity to have had Max age somewhat, they'll probably seize the opportunity to have him remain young such that he's a good same-age partner for Bonnie.

Whether or not May or Max show up, I would not expect them to stick around for more than eight episodes. I was optimistic that Dawn would stick around for the duration of Best Wishes Season 2 but she ended up leaving after the Junior Cup wrapped up. Given the writers squandered a perfectly good opportunity to have an old fan favorite stick around for about a year, I doubt they'll do any different this go around with May and Max.

They didn't visit Johto. Johto came to them: it was a tourism event held in Sinnoh to promote Sinnoh locals going on holiday to Johto. Kotone and Kaburaki were there to promote the event and that's how they met Ash and Dawn. At the end of the four-part miniseries, the two Johto kids end up returning home by airplane. You can read more about the anime Kotone / Lyra here.

Absolutely agreed. I just hated it from a gameplay standpoint (albeit for different reasons than your issues with it.

Oh yeah this was pretty great. One of RSE's good points was popping back their after every gym and wondering what it had in store for you this time.

Anyones holding out hope for these to be sequels an not straight up remakes?

Weird names btw. Whats so alpha/omega about R/S?

Anyways I called no Z/XY2 this year but honestly wasn't expecting remakequels either. This series just can't get a break these days. New main game released from 2009 to 2014. An of course next year they'll put out X/Ywhatevs. We Pikachu's Creed of Duty up in here.

YES!

Anyways, I'm not expecting them to make much changes plot-wise. It's been less than a year since XY came out so I don't know how much time they've spent on the actual plot. I am greatly hoping for a revamped Secret Base system and such like many of you, and I honestly wouldn't be upset with a straight up re-make since RSE were my favorite games.

I asked a broader version of this question earlier:
Quote:
Originally Posted by Talon87 View Post

and a few people replied. Look through the thread to see what people have said; the rest either don't have any guess or don't care to guess.

Although I never did answer my own question. Despite the mega evolutions featured on the box covers, I'm anticipating this being a remake of Ruby and Sapphire. And I'll be perfectly happy with that if it is one, as I quite loved Gen 3's story. But if instead this is to be a BW2-style sequel for the region, that would be awesome too. I'd love to see more BW2-style sequels.

If the games are remakes, their being remade will invite the question of who's next in line. People always hunger for the original game in near about any franchise to be remade and/or accessible on current-gen hardware, and it's been ten years since the Gen 1 games were remade: longer than the period of time between when they first came out and when they were remade. The Gen 4 games are already seven to eight years old but many would likely agree that from a graphics and hardware perspective they don't really need to be remade just yet. But that won't keep Sinnoh's fans from clamoring for a current-gen port of the Sinnoh region that allows players to relive the experience but with all of the latest creatures, attacks, and other gameplay elements. I honestly wonder if Game Freak is going to need to do a recruitment drive in the near future and split off into two houses: one that works on new titles in the main series and another that works on remakes of older titles in the main series. Because the problem with remakes is only going to get exponentially worse and worse as time goes on. They can't keep on making remakes forever. They can't even revisit old regions forever. Not if they want to keep taking us to new places too while keeping their staff at the size it's currently at.

Also, please let these games be sequels. If these are reboots, we'll be restarting much of the entire continuity, which boggles me a little. Plus I'd like to see how Hoenn has changed, ranging from a teenage Tate & Liza to Wally as a potential Champion.

Now that I think about it, I think I'd definitely prefer a sequel. We have some lose ends with Wally that need to be wrapped up.

All of the news outlets report that the "press release" confirms it's a remake of Ruby and Sapphire, not a sequel. This would fit with the naming convention. (Remakes get a new word put in front of their old color; sequels get a totally new name or a 2 put after the name of the game they are a sequel to.) It would also fit with most fans' expectations. (No one would expect a Hoenn sequel that comes out of nowhere. Everyone would expect a Gen 3 remake.) But whether the gaming press is just leaping to conclusions from the YouTube video as many of us have done or whether they actually received a letter from Nintendo clarifying that these are Gen 3 remakes and not sequels, I don't know.

I say we give it a little bit before passing judgement on remake vs. new game. There's a good deal of points either way, really, but it's too early in the game cycle to make and judgements about content yet.
