Expanded Unova themed Safari Zone? (unlocked by postgame, of course, otherwise you get the normal Safari Zone)
Step into the Fairy circle
Thursday-Unova again,, with a 5% chance of DW abilities
Saturday-Normal selection, with a 5% chance of DW abilities
Sunday-Sinnoh 'mons, with a 5% chance of DW abilities
...or something. I'm tired and avoiding working on finals, so ignore my ramblings~
The major problem however, is that you HAVE to catch or defeat Groudon/Kyogre in the main story. This means that unless there are two Groudon/Kyogre's in the story, then theres no reason for Rayquaza to interfere.
Emerald's storyline is really the only one that makes sense in this scenario. The previous two remakes never had to deal with a problem like this.
"Laws and principles are not for the times when there is no temptation: they are for such moments as this, when body and soul rise in mutiny against their rigour; stringent are they; inviolate they shall be. If at my individual convenience I might break them, what would be their worth??" - Charlotte Brontë ; Jane Eyre
Maybe the area of the Emerald Version Safari Zone that had Johto Pokemon (the right side of the SZ that was ONLY in Emerald) will be in the remakes, but replace the Johto pokemon with Unova ones
Also, with the whole mess thing, please read over what I said carefully before taking it that literally; I even said that the games weren't horrible. What I meant was that they felt like they were missing a lot more in comparison with the older primary pairs, not just the aftergame(s), that could be the reason that they felt rushed to me. Just because they were officially rated doesn't mean those are the only opinions that matter(although I can't argue; they do help a lot).
The above idea about the Safari zone is something I also like.
The thing is, if they released a "watered down" 3DS game first, they'll be hit by reviewers for not using the 3DS to its full potential. I would much rather have a DS game that uses that console's features to its full potential than a 3DS game that doesn't use as many so the next game can have all the glory.Actually, imo, there is a way you could make them for the 3DS, yet still keep them different. How about the first games for it(I guess mainly main games in this case) could still have the top down view of BW and all that, but be pretty much rougher 'actual 3D'(I guess that may work for the DS if they could do it right, although I'm still sure they could pull it off with the 3DS). That way they could save the full blown 3D world, etc. for Gen VI.
I think they should keep Gen V completely on the DS to avoid a whole annoyance of trading and such between the games. Completely my opinion - I totally respect the arguments otherwise.
I actually really hope they emphasize the art in the Hoenn remakes. Hoenn is supposed to warm and tropical per se, and I'd like to see a thorough representation of that via tropical trees and the right color scheme. Goodness, I can't wait to hear an upgraded version of the Gym Leader theme from Gen III.
This might sound kind of silly, but Gen III was the only generation where I didn't find exploring the water tedious. I think it was the whole idea of fast encounters. Remember how *slow* Diamond and Pearl's encounters were? It made finding Pokes a nightmare.
I LOVED Dive too. I just LOVE DIVE so much. Exploring the bottom of the sea was an honest-to-goodness pleasure and honor for me.

That wouldn't matter though, because they'd be on the same console. As you said, not a lot of 3DS games push the console to its full potential; I'd rather GameFreak wait until they know they can release a game that does. It wouldn't take as much work for them to tweak Grey on the DS as it would to put BW's entire engine onto the 3DS and rework it for that system.I don't mean watered down to the point of disappointment. How much more of an improvement to the DS do you think Gray/Chrome could give without the usual, mostly aftergame, additions?(an actual question to you) A lot of the 3DS games as of now don't even use it to its full potential. Right now, I would love to see them put into reality the whole 'not forget DS users but still show what the 3DS can do' concept.
Sure they could do it, but I honestly think it would be a real shame. Why not be a big fish in a small pond rather than a little fish in a big pond?
Same here! ^_^ Dive was a lot of fun to me, and the idea of catching Pokemon and searching for items under the water was so cool. The fact that Dive is present on BW and is only used in one location post-game came across as a huge R/S remake hint.I LOVED Dive too. I just LOVE DIVE so much. Exploring the bottom of the sea was an honest-to-goodness pleasure and honor for me.
I still think these remakes are going to be the big announcement at Jump Festa. Nothing else would live up to the hype at this point.
