    Gary? Isn't that the anime version of Blue (or Green in Japan)? Why is he called Gary when Red isn't called Ash? Why not Blue?

    This blog clearly exemplifies why a Pokemon game with all 6 regions would not be viable. First of all, how long do you think someone would stay interested in a possibly 40+ hour game that is repetitive in structure? Do you think a 3DS game can handle the amount of data required for 6 regions? Wouldn't it be more efficient to remake each game individually as collectively, they would earn more profit? I personally would feel ripped off if I couldn't be able to access my previous Pokemon until a receive a certain badge.
    The most likely 20th anniversary Pokemon games would be remakes of Fire Red and Leaf Green.

    Whoops, slip of the tongue. How could I forget that he's Blue in the game canon? Anyway, changing all instances of "Gary" to "Blue".
