Well, they've referenced the anime before in the games. (All the Johto games mention the Pink Butterfree) so maybe the could mention Ash. And in the original Johto games, in Slowpoke Well, I'm pretty sure you face off against Jessie and James (although they're not directly called Jessie or James). Same team and everything. Although I haven't played those in years, so I could totally be wrong.
My dream is that every single Pokémon will be part of either a two-stage evolution, a three-stage evolution or a branched evolution by the final Generation years from now. When I see a stand-alone Pokémon, I literally imagine it standing alone. No friends, no family, no one. So let's make sure all of our Pokémon friends get some big families!
I'd always find it nice to see old characters again, so I voted yes.
The fact that they're from Kanto doesn't "add" anything to it, though (for me, of course)

Shiny Steel Team! Now going for ghost!
I voted no. I'm tired of everyhting related to Kanto and i think would be much cooler if Hoenn, Sinnoh or Unova gym leaders appear on the third version/sequel.

I would like to have a Red battle somewhere, or even blue since he's mentioned in-game by an NPC. Other then that, I feel like I've had enough of Kanto. Yea sure, it's nice to go back to pokemon's roots but seriously, there are other regions as well.

I don't hate the Gen. I leaders but frankly, no. I'm kind of bored of them and I enjoy seeing new ones. Maybe if 1-2 made a cameo appearance for a good reason or if it was some post-game thing, otherwise it would sort of suck.
That said, I'd really love a game or something exploring Kanto a bit more but with new gym leaders.
I would certainly like it. I think that Gym Leaders should be fleshed out characters, not just a buffed up boss. Gen V executed this perfectly, and Crasher Wake did quite fine between his native Sinnoh and his cameo in HGSS. Getting the phone numbers for the rematches also provided some character development, so I liked that a lot. The thing is, previous Gens had a lot less screen time for the Gym Leaders, and I think Gamefreak is making up for it with appearances in later games.

I think that if they decided to keep them as gym leaders whose gyms we have to visit (maybe post-game) that it would be neat to give their gyms a makeover. I like the idea the new games have of making the gym more complex within its type, rather than just a building you walk into and maybe solve a puzzle if you're lucky, but which looks kind of plain.
To be honest, since Kalos is more Kanto than Kalos I was expecting champion or leaders to appear (even more when a NPC mentions Gary xD).
It'd be cool to see back some of them (namely PWT or just cameos), but not only from Kanto. I'd like to see characters from the other regions as well, and like Hex Maniac said, not only them appearing to battle you, a quick example may be to give you something from past gens (since we can't get items through pokébank), or they can be around to talk about the how the time passed in their places, etc.

It bothers me that in every game after gen 1, leaders or trainers or professors from a previous gen pop up but not in kalos. But I guess that's how they kept mega stones so secret huh?
I want lorelei back. I dont know how many times I trounced the elite for just for her lol
I don't care if they appear in X or Y (+ whatever third game or sequel that follows it) , or in a remake of Ruby and Sapphire, if they make one in this gen. Even if one or two of the leaders appearing would be fine. Or anybody else from any other region.
They might even make a remake of the Kanto games' remakes or something this gen.
I want a Gengar with a mustache.
I only really care for Sabrina, to be honest. I'd like to see her again.
(Rumor has it Joey's Rattata has 31 IVs in all its stats.)>
Blue should at least make an appearance, but leave it at that. Just Blue would be okay. I guess I'm just getting tired of Red showing up, and would like some other super powerful trainer to take his place. D:
