So... what exactly is this "Hoenn" business, and why is it such a big deal?
I've only played a couple of Pokémon games, and I'm not too knowledgeable about the franchise.
Third region. Third gen. Third trio. Fairly popular time for people to have started playing at too.

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.

My local Gamestop equivalent, EB Games, literally just this second posted a trailer for Omega and Alpha R/S.
It shows shit all, just "new adventure" "ruby and sapphire" "november 2014", and that's it - but i sincerely hope this isn't a joke...

I thought EB games died and was bought by gamestop.

It's real.

Every dwarf, every dwarven man, women, and child, that comes to our forts will die there; it's truly sad when you think about it. And we ask our selves, why? Why do we push forward, knowing this fate, that we are destined for failure? Because, this game grasps the concept of mortality. Some games you can never lose, but we all stop eventually, causing a 'death' to those game's 'worlds'. Dwarf Fortress gives us a definite end, knowing that we will leave that world eventually, and move on to more.

That doesn't mean they had to change all the signs. They're just run by gamestop until the sign needs replacement.

TAERG EB LLIW SIHT KOMRA YB

(Translation: BY ARMOK THIS WILL BE GREAT)

How will they ever match the glory of LEGENDARY HOENN in EPIC 3D? I can't wait for screenshots.

Also, that ARCHNEMESIS of mine (who, on another note, I creamed twice in a row) is going to be thrilled to hear this. I think his first game was Ruby.

Another pal of mine was torn between Sapphire's "Alpha" prefix and Ruby's general manliness, weighed against it being lowest in the pack.

They did.

They also decided to keep the brand and for some reason are also using the EB games brand internationally instead of Gamestop.

I wonder how many new megaevolutions there will be. It's pretty exciting. Think of all the lame, worthless or semi-useless pokemon that can be freshened up and made overpowered. Imagine Mega Ludicolo with freaking drizzle! Mega Golem with levitate! Mega Dodrio with gale wings! Mega Wailord with regenerator! Mega Spinda that still has contrary but is now FIGHTING TYPE! Mega Cradily that becomes steel / grass!

Mega Slaking loses Truant for Huge Power. Also gains additional +100 to stats.

It'd be the most overpowered thing in the universe.

Truant being literally the only thing keeping Slaking from Ubers, too.
It's not outrageously slow, it's got good defenses, huge HP, and high attacking stats.

Mega Slaking if such a thing existed would probably just lose Truant for something that has very situational use in battle, I'd bet.

Then they go the complete opposite direction and give it a Parental Bond variant.

Or heck, just giving it a Truant variant that makes it miss 1/3 instead of 1/2 of its turns.

Or Slow Start, which is only 40% as crap due to Slaking being able to learn Protect.
