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.

You can rebattle gym leaders in the Battle Chateau, as well as the Elite Four and rarely Diantha, but it's pretty uncommon.

You can, but they don't change at all and don't improve. Forever 3 pokemon losers.

They were probably devoting most of their resources to adapting all the new 3D models and such, that's why there's less content.

With the exception of gen 2, the first games in each gen don't have much in the way of postgame stuff. Z will probably expand it quite a bit.

Nintendo investors conference confirmed them to be remakes. The in game footage is dropping in 3 hours~
So...we're confirmed to have Brendan and May as the playable characters set in the Hoenn region with the same overall story flow but with more details, just like FR/LG/HG/SS did? all by that one statement? Then why did they state the part about a spectacular new world?

My point: until we see some actual gameplay footage of the overworld I cannot claim them as "remakes". You may be able to, but not me.

Anyways getting to the current convo...

Yeah XY leave quite a bit to be desired with endgame content, I'm happy Looker gets a moment or two but that story line is just...ugh.

And really the "postgame" stuff of G/S wasn't Kanto - as those badges still gave you bonuses to some stats, in fact it was Mt Silver, which was in...Johto, so even Gen lacked in postgame stuffs before it's third version.

Honestly D/P/Pt have had the most Postgame stuff with that final island...

As in they specifically said they're remakes of the game. "Full remakes" in their exact words. That does not mean that the playable characters will be the exact same, but it does mean that the story probably will be mostly kept the same with some modifications.

That link you provided only backs up my point with it's final paragraph: Nintendo keeps pushing this new world mumbo jumbo with this remake info so I'm not assuming anything until I see some actual overworld gameplay footage.

EDIT:
In the meantime I am trying to find a female Aroma Veil Spritzee or aromatisse, any nature/ivs/etc will do as I plan to hatch, if anyone has one they don't want/need lets take it to pm to discuss a trade.

Sell me on them. It seems mildly interesting, but I'd like to know more before trying.

Lol that's when you do it my way:
You know they're coming, there's X number of months between now and release, the game(s) cost(s) Y amount of money so
divide Y by X and save the resulting value each month and it won't even feel like it hit you at all.

Anyways...
I haven't been playing X much myself: ESO and DF and seriously wanna save any pokemon fun for ORAS all contribute to that....I'm starting to think my aroma veil Aromatisse is just a pipe dream...

In addition to what New Guy said:

*Difficult Battles (Expect opponents with good teams. You'll have to use strategy.)
*Decent Writing (Some of the characters are hilarious. Also lots of references. A good amount of the trainers you fight actually say something that's not completely random. The Pokemon Ranger love triangle. #Swag)
*Completely revealed IV/EV. Makes it easier to make a good team.
*I had more fun with it than Black/White.
*Secret Bases return. With actual functionality.
*Freeeeeeeeeee~
