Hoenn in BW2.

Some people have been thinking that Hoenn might appear as a side-region in BW2, because they're "releasing all of the Hoenn starters/Weather Trio", etc.
It's not happening.
First of all: why not RSEmakes? I understand some people may not be fans of RS, but why would GF throw away an opportunity for a new game? And before you all say, "You can Pal Park/Poké Transfer all of your mons to BW anyway!", think about this.
The Pokémon franchise is aimed towards kids from ages 6 to 14, roughly.
Let's say a twelve year old played RSE. If he/she was born in 1999, and RS came out in 2003, then he/she'd be four years old when the Gen III games came out.
How many four year olds do you know who play Pokémon?
Yes, maybe YOU could Transfer Gen 3 mons to you Gen 5 games, but the vast majority of kids who play Pokémon can't, because they don't have the Gen 3 games.
And even if RSEmakes won't see release, why in BW2?
I understand Kanjoh, because they border each other, but Johto relied on Kanto.
But Hoenn and Unova?
It has been stressed, TIME AND TIME AGAIN, that Unova is very far away from the other regions. Having two areas on different sides of the world be in the same game is just unrealistic to me.
And the time difference problem?
Well, we know that Gen 5 takes place a while after Gen 3, so we might either have a sequel/remake hybrid (Takes place in future, but few differences), or they might troll us and screw up continuity by putting BW and RS in the same timeframe (They're masters at that, just look at Ash).
Even if those two don't work out, I HIGHLY DOUBT that it's grounds to cancel what might be a very successful game, and jamming the region into BW2.
