Well, as much as one would like for a sequel to happen, do you think GameFreak would actually think of that? I think the graphic change would do a lot for the games seeing how the sprites of trees, houses, etc. were really ugly.
Well, as much as one would like for a sequel to happen, do you think GameFreak would actually think of that? I think the graphic change would do a lot for the games seeing how the sprites of trees, houses, etc. were really ugly.
Well, here's what I'd like to see from RS Remakes:
Features from Emerald:
Pokémon Emerald opened up a lot of access to Johto Pokémon through the Safari Zone Extension and the Battle Frontier. As Lugia and Ho-Oh aren't as rare anymore thanks to HGSS, I'd like to see Naval Rock from Emerald return, but in-game. Possibly unlocked once you obtain all Silver Medals from the Battle Frontier (finally, a reason to do that?). Also, some Pokémon from other generations can show up Post-National Dex.
As I said before, I'd want the Battle Frontier and Naval Rock to return. However, on top of that, I'd like to see Birth Island and Faraway Island (Although they can stay as Event Locations. Thus, Scott will return. However, I don't care much for Desert Underpass and Mirage Tower.
Also, can Altering Cave please actually be used? It can be done in a similar manner to the Pokémon that appear in Black City and White Forest.
As Team Magma and Aqua were both enemies in Emerald, each one got more attention. I'd prefer if, in the Ruby remake, rather than battling Team Magma near Lilycove (which seemed silly anyway), the Magma's Hideout returned.
Features from Ruby and Sapphire that Emerald Changed:
Pokémon Contests. Sure, the Battle Tents in Emerald were nice, but Contests were better in my opinion.
Wallace as the Sootopolis Gym Leader, and Steven as the Champion. Having 2 Water-type specialists in Hoenn made Emerald kind of easy towards the end.
Gym Leaders should be rebattled, like in Emerald.
Regigigas. This goes without saying really. Maybe if, once you've caught Regirock, Regice and Registeel and you take them to the ruins where you originally awoke them, when you have the National Pokédex, Regigigas will appear.
I'd like Brendan/May to be more involved in the Team Magma/Team Aqua. This can tie in with Emerald's enhanced story; where you get the Red/Blue Orb (Depending on your version) while they get the alternate one; you go and calm Groudon/Kyogre (and capture it), while they go after the other one. This could also be a way for you to see the final form of their starter. They could then update the rostras of other trainers to let you see the third starter.
All recent Game Mechanics introduced in DPt, HGSS and BW to return (Including Day/Night and Seasons).
Move Tutors from Emerald & FRLG, and for them to be re-usable (even if they charge you money this time).
Make Pacifidlog Town useful?
I, like many, loved the PokéWalker. I'd love if they upgraded it (Designing it after a Great Ball, maybe?). Pokémon obtained on this should have their Dream World abilities, where applicable.
I'd really like some epic gym puzzles like the ones in Black and White.
Maybe they could have Tate and Liza's moving panels in 3D.
But that might be a bit complicated.
I also think if all the posts so far on this thread were combined they would probably be the best games ever.
It just comes down to whether they think its the best option. And if you think about it, it probably would. One major objection to the RSEmakes was that they are still playable and are not as outdated. But if GF were to make a new story for Hoenn, these people would have nothing to complain about since it'll be like a new game altogether. Its like hitting two birds with one stone.
I would like:
1) Emerald Frontier. Please.
2) Updated gym PUZZLES, but the same teams, until,
3) Leader rematches. UPDATE AWAY!!!
4) Another region to be accessible, preferably Sinnoh.
5) Gen V pokes after the national dex.
That's it. I think.
What I'd want is some actual art for the M/A Admins
All the other games had them, so why not Tabitha, Courtney, Shelly, and Matt?
While Emerald successfully merged Ruby and Sapphire's story arcs, in the remakes, they should stick with Emerald's story with changes instead of keeping the RS plot.
In the Ruby remake(RR), Team Aqua is battled less often and the opposite in the Sapphire remake(SR). Let the first encounter be a Team Aqua encounter in both versions. Let the grunt try to steal the goods from Devon but be unsuccessful because a Magma grunt got there first. You battle both the grunts.
Let Team Magma appear in Granite Cave. Perhaps they are searching for Steven Stone to get information on the meteorite. Obviously, they then need to appear again at Mt. Chimney.
Both hideouts should appear.
All evolutions of Gen III pokemon introduced need to be added to the Regional Pokedex. Some of the new Pokemon that would fit in with the geography of Hoenn need to be added too. This enables more variety in the Teams of Gym Leaders and the Elite 4. While Gen III had more variety in teams than previous games, they are still lacking compared to newer ones.
Gallade and Gardevoir can be given to Tate and Liza repectively. If they keep Xatu and Claydol and their main Pokemon remain Solrock and Lunatone, they will have a team of 6.
...On second thought, maybe its best if they don't make Tate and Liza harder to beat. ;)
One more ice Type can be added from other games. IF they do that and keep Froslass, they Glacia can have a better team. Although Froslass can be given to Phoebe too.
Dusknoir is an obvious choice for Phoebe. Replace one of her Dusclops with this and give the other the new Item that increases the defence of unevolved Pokemon. Maybe a Spiritomb too. The rest of the E4 were fine.
Archie and Maxie's team contained only 1 water/ground type respectively, those being Camerupt and Sharpedo. This needs to be changed. We have Claydol and Sandslash for Maxie and Tentacruel and Wailord for Archie.
Maybe both could a Whiscash? I think that would be cool.
Chatot needs to be added to the dex. Archie needs a Chatot. It needs to be done.
Day and Night and Seasons are a must. Seasons go great with Hoenn's climate.
The Emerald Battle Frontier needs to be kept. Not any new replacement.
I agree with Ryu Shoji. The Navel Rock event needs to be an in-game feature for getting all silver symbols.
The prize for getting all Gold Symbols should be the Birth Island event. And Deoxys' forms can be changed by inspecting the White Rock on Mossdeep Island near the SPace Station. Each time you inspect it, Deoxys' forme changes and cycles.
Or maybe the rock could be used to acquire a Jirachi whether it be in-game or through a Nintendo Event.
I think as a sequal it should be set 7-10 years after the actual games so in that time many things have changed, Regigigas has come to Hoenn, the older Gym Leaders and Elite 4 have retired with new people taking there place, previous rivals and playable characters should become important in the storyline like as someone said before Wally becoming Champion or Brendan/May being 'a new Red'.
Asthetically the Region has changed. After Kyogre/Groudon's battle Mt.Chimney erupted, destoying the local Lavaridge town with new signs of human expansion only just appearing (kind of a copy of Cinnabar Island, but GameFreak can figure out how to make it different).
Also Mt.Pyre has eroded and degraded, becoming a sort of 'Last Dungeon' like where Mewtwo was in FireRed/LeafGreen, this could be Regigigas' new home with parts only accessible with Dive and Waterfall.
The new evil team could be from Fortree city whose people in Saphire/Ruby were more in touch with Nature than anywhere else. The team think that people are destoying the forests and ecosystems; almost a reflection of whats happening in our world.
In the new games there is an enhanced time feature and there are also seasons, with Fallabor town, the tiny community of Lavaridge town and Verdenturf town having snow in Winter. Like in Black & White different Pokemon will appear in different times of day and in different seasons. Also the Pokenav will become more prominent, being a new VS Seeker/PokeGear.
Contests will be back and will be only in Lilycove city like in Emerald, this new contest hall will now be a mix of all three sidequests though; Pokeathelon/Musical/Contest with the Museum being moved to Rustboro city due to the lack of peoples interest, a new sidequest will be helping the manager advertise the Museum by having numerous non-stop battles inside, letting painters paint scenes from it and put them on exhibit. For your help you will recieve the PokeNav. As the building is relacing the old Deven Corp. due to Steven becoming the new manager and moving the corporation to Mauville city which has become the new industrial hub of Hoenn. Mauville is also now the biggest city, knocking off Lilycove as the top dog and due to its expansion is only seperated to Slateport by a large river, with cycling road being the only way to cross it. Don't worry, the cycling shop is now in Slateport for your conveniance.
During the eruption of Mt.Chimney the Lavaridge town gym was destroyed with the new gym being in Fallabor town, it is still a Fire gym though. Also the gym order has slightly changed with Norman now being the last gymleader and Flannery being the third gym making the order...
-Watson (most likely to be replaced due to his old age, possibly by one of his underlings)
-Tate & Liz (still a Double battle)
-Juan, not Wallace (Wallace has become a new Elite 4 member, replacing Drake, and not being the Champion)
Although this order now looks strange you still get the HM Surf at the appropriate time. You get it when you help Steven in Rusturf Tunnel, which is now far larger and more complex due to earthquakes produced by Groudon. Also the Desert route has shifted more northwards with the southern half dominated by water due to Kyogre's previous presence. There is also a few new routes north of the the rapids west of Pacifidlog town and south of Mt.Pyre which were previously unexplorable; these routes are now forest/marshland/river-systems with the routes starting west of Mauville city and ending below Lilycove city with the area having more beaches.
Anyway I've said too much and I doubt half of this would happy so sorry... but I think it would soooooo awesome!!!
Well first off it would be great to add a new area to it (such as the sevii islands where added to kanto in FR/LG) where you could find some pokemon(and possablby legendarys) from other regions.
Next both Kyogre and groundon can be caught in both games (like how you could catch both Ho-oh and Lugia in SS/HG) at some point and you cannot catch Requaza before E-4 as that would make the game too easy or you catch it at a lower level like 45 or 50.
Regigigas can be caught only after all 3 of the regi`s are caught too in a new area.
One kanto,Johto and Sinnoh starter pokemon can be got in the game after beating the E-4 just like in SS/HG.
Latios/Latias are verson exculvses just like in Ruby/Safire and not like how you could chose witch one you get like in emarld.
Dialga/Palkia can be caught depending on witch verson you have (Such as you can only get Palkia in safires remake and Dialga in rubys remake) and giratina can be found in both versons after betting the E-4.
The battle frontier is just like how it was in emarld is back.
The lake trio can be caught after you have a Dialga/Palkia/Gritina is in one game(they can be from gen 4 not just gen 5) in new areas.
The legendary beasts can be caught in new areas(they are not roaming) in Ruby remake.
The legendary Birds can be caught in new areas(they are not roaming) in Safires remake.
Ho-oh/lugia can be found in a new area Ho-oh(after all the lendary beasts are caught) can only be found in rubys remake and Lugia(after all the legendary birds are caught) in safire.
You can rebattle gym leaders just like in HG/SS.
Mewtwo can be found in a new area after beating the E-4.
Heatran can be found in a new area after beating the E-4.
Cresslia is roaming after beating the E-4 and finding a lunar wing.

Assuming the remake turns out to be a sequel, I really wonder how different the Hoenn region will be. I mean, if so much can change in Kanto within just three years, imagine how much Hoenn will change after 8 or so years.
Also, how the Battle Frontier will be handled is one thing to consider. If GF will want to have connectivity with the RSEmakes and 'Pokémon Gray' like Platinum and HG/SS, then they'd have to have the same Battle Frontier. But that can't really happen unless the Hoenn gets a new frontier, or the Battle Subway takes the place of the tower, with the tower having become something like that Trainer Tower on Quest Island in FR/LG.
These are my main ideas
The storyline stays true to Ruby and Sapphire with elements from Emerald, like how HGSS kept to Gold and Silver's storyline but added elemnts from Crystal.
Emerald Battle Frontier
Contests, with the four ranks in different locations
Gym Leaders only use Pokemon in Hoenn Dex. They branch out in rematches
Wallace is a Gym Leader. Elite Four is same with Steven as Champion.
Legendary Dogs/Birds roam depending on version in addition to Latios/Latias. When all 3 are captured the player can go to navel rock to capture Ho-oh or Lugia.
Day and Night and Seasons
I'd like to see the admins and leaders use more diverse pokemon
Instead of them using the poochyena line they should Electrike so they can be more diverse and harder.
1. Matt (Slateport Museum) - Electrike and Sharpedo
2. Matt (Aqua Hideout) - Manetric, Sharpedo and Wailord
1. Shelly (Weather Institute) - Golbat, Sealeo, and Crawdaunt
2. Shelly (Underwatercavern) - Golbat, Sealeo, and Crawdaunt
1. Archie (Meteor Falls) - Golbat, Manectric, Sharpedo, and Corphish
2. Archie (Sootoplis City) - Crobat, Crawdaunt, Wailord, Manectric and Sharpedo
1.Tabitha (Route 112 in front of cable car) Mightyena, Camerupt and Baltoy
2.Tabitha (Space Cente Double Battle) Mightyena, Camerupt and Boltoy
1.Courtney (New Area) Golbat, Torkoal, Rhyhorn
2.Courtney (Magma Base) Golbot TOrkoal, Rhydon
1.Maxie (Mt. Chimney) Mightyena, Golbat, Camerupt, and Rhyhorn
2.Maxie (Space Center Double Battle) Mightyena, Crobat, Claydol, Camerupt, and Ryhperior.
Maybe the final show down could be a team up with May/Brendan against both the leaders of the teams.
Or the double battle in Space Center could be with both the Magma admins.
Extra rival battles in Lavridge Town, Route 128 before going to Ever Grande plaza, and Route 101 while he/she is helping there dad with research.
Brendan/May Swellow, Aggron, Flygon, Breloom/Wailord/Torkoal and Final Form or starter.
They should at least have there pokemon evolved earlier on.
I'd also like to the Rustborough Battle be required.
A team up against the leaders is highly unlike since they both have exactly opposite ideals.
What I would love is if your rival teams up with Wally at the end of Victory road.
Ironically I had just made a thread detailing how Team Aqua/Magma would be involved in the Regi pokemon plot and therefore making the game more interesting... (posted here if you care)
I think they should definitely be tied into the game after the weather pokemon battle.
And this was already mentioned, but Regigigas should be available.
