People have been waiting five years for this. It's reached half-life 3 levels of memeness because of how much people kept expecting it with every announcement.

And here I was thinking it was wishful thinking: The first two games needed remakes because they couldn't be traded from to later games. Ruby and Sapphire don't have that distinction. I'm pretty sure I've got some pokes from my RSE games on my XY cart right now.

Whatchoo talkin' bout?

The Sevii Islands and Emerald Safari covered Johto
'mons, HGSS was just trend-keeping. Besides, you need two kinds of handhelds and five games to get Hoenn pokes now.

People couldn't get Ho-Oh and Lugia without playing the Colosseum games or scoring an event item, and the Runner Trio was only technically available via FRLG. (Even if you bought both games, you had to restart one after beating the whole thing and then do it all again to get all three.) And then of course there was the Red Gyarados, the Extremespeed Dratini from Crystal, and so on. Plus, there's just the whole "Hey, this is the team I used to beat Red" aspect that you just don't get from the Emerald Safari Zone.

(And even that only makes up for so much. I had so many shinies due to stupidly good luck on my Gold cart that died the inevitable cold hard death of battery failure because I couldn't transfer... Then it took years for me to encounter any in the later gens. And the first of those was a Hariyama who first-turn Whirlwinded. And the second was a Safari Zone Oddish who ate six safari balls and still managed to escape. I was cursing GameFreak for years over the no-transfer thing because of that.)

I always thought that there was a big difference between Gameboy Pocket / Colour and the GBA. For example, while the GBA is old it doesn't look "retro" like the other two. Hence I was a little surprised at the Hoenn remake.

Okay ESO took up a lot of my time but to hear the confirm of RS remakes.
Pokémon TAKE MAH MONEYS!
As soon as I have the funds, I'm preordering both OR/AS versions and then in November I'd disappearing from the net while I has myself a date with Groudon and Kyorge.

However...I cannot say they're Hoenn remakes: they feature new "hyper-mode" looking Groudon/Kyorge artworks and the description says "a new world" so...who knows.
I do pray it's set in Hoenn though, but with how differently they did bw/b2/w2 it/s anyone's guess.

I can't believe I watched a livestream for an hour just for 40 seconds of the title sequence.

I'm a few days into my Black 2 game. All the competitive pokemon battling has made me so picky about my pokemon.

I only have three pokemon with me, and I tossed my starter into the bank. I have a steadfast Riolu, an intimidate Growlithe, and a Koffing.

That's it.

I want to toss my steadfast Riolu as it has freaking steadfast which is worthless but if I don't keep it I have barely any coverage at all. I barely ever catch anything as it's always like this: "Oooh, a Purrloin. I could use a prankster... aww. Prankster is a hidden ability." Or "Hmm... a Mareep. I could get mega amph- awww... no mega evolution." Or "Hmm... a Magby. Magmortar has really good coverage bu- awww... I forgot you have to trade it to level it up."

I don't even battle any random pokemon as I can't be bothered, so all my pokemon are so underlevelled even though I only have three. I fought the poison gym leader and she was 5 levels ahead of my highest level pokemon, the Riolu. It's quite amusing and helps a bit with the challenge. I'm currently stuck in game as none of my pokemon can learn cut and I can't be bothered to capture a useless shitty HM slave and waste a slot.

Can't access the wifi as Black 2 uses the really shitty DS wifi detection. The one that doesn't recognize WPA2.

Yerp.

XY is actually kinda shallow in terms of actual gameplay. The improvements and such to the battling is awesome, but the actual game is way too easy and boring. Everyone except the Elite 4 have 3 or less pokemon. There's zero endgame content, just that island. Can't rebattle gym leaders. Stuff like that.

Heartgold was excellent for the amount of stuff you could do but the systems are just way too dated now.

There's the Looker Quest, though I haven't managed to activate it personally.

Also New Poll.
