You can never overuse Red.

I actually liked how the previous games kept their ties with the older games by having the characters and such pop up, like having Jasmine appear in Sunyshore and similar such things. It makes the franchise feel like one continuous journey in the same world rather than separate games entirely, even though they have their own stories. So I would love to see any cameos they might want to throw in.
At least Lance, Blue and especially Red have to make it. I dont want to see Cynthia again, as im quite tired of her. Id also like to see Steven come back, as a sign of RSE remakes coming out.
Cameos at the World Tournament or something are fine, because it makes sense that a gym leader would be there. I don't want cameos that are there just to have a cameo.
Example: there's a part in Black2 where (if I remember correctly) you can meet Crasher Wake standing on a cliff in one of the extreme southeast areas (Route 1?). He says 2-3 lines and then leaves. I can't remember what he said, but that scene had no relation to anything and didn't go anywhere.
Also, as Aquanova said, I think they should focus on the new characters. Otherwise it gives the impression they don't trust their new characters to capture our attention.
I'd love to see a World tournament again, but it's not a huge priority. They'll probably save it for the 3rd version/sequels. Then they'll bring 'em all back.
Red will probably pop up. He's popped up in each gen for one reason or another. But another Kanto trainer? Nah. Maybe a Hoenn one or a Sinnoh one.. A Sinnoh one who isn't Cynthia, I mean. Maybe a Unova one even.
I'd enjoy a previous rival popping up. I'd say a previous protagonist but GF is reluctant to make anyone canon, from the looks of it.
they have been overused
I'd welcome anyone as long as they aren't a player character or a Kanto person. Shirona I would welcome back!
Actually, I'd prefer a cameo by Prof. Oak.
I'd like to see Professor Oak as a really old man and all of the player characters from Gens I-V as adults with new artwork. That's really all I'd be hyped for.
I'd love it if they all got together to defeat a powerful organization/legendary from Kanto. Kind of like "Mewtwo has come to your region from Kanto to play a part in the DNA-based storyline, so we feel obliged to stop him." You know, like they do in Pokemon Adventures.
NO. They are overused. I'd rather have a short cameo of Professor Oak - maybe references of Red here and there since he's probably known as a legendary trainer all in-game, but NO ONE ELSE. Maybe references on N would be made at the most.
Same goes to people of other regions. If they are to appear, then I'd rather have them be restricted to the champions for regional starters give-away events - and do NOTHING ELSE. Like, how Steven gives you the Hoenn Starters in HGSS?
No gym leaders, no elite fours, no one.
