Hints to a Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald remake

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Posted by DGonlag (834 posts) -

So i was wondering if there are any hints found in pokemon games that could refer to a remake of the 3rd Gen.

In pokemon HG/SS there was a gamefreak guy in Celadon city who said they are remaking an old game.

I wonder if there are any other clues. Feel free to post them here.

(i'm talking about apearing characters and things characters say.)

Well, a dude in third gen talks about how his projection of Pokemon dreams aren't working, but now in fifth gen, that's a huge part of gameplay.

I think if nintendo is going to remake a game it should be red/blue version. because it's the oldest it would interesting to see it with a make over with new graphics and in color.

Well they did that on the GBA. Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green.

I can't imagine a Ruby/Sapphire remake. I think those were the worst versions compared to the rest.

I wouldn't say they were the best, but they were definitely better than Gen IV and V. To each their own. :)

No other Pokemon generation deserves anymore attention than Gen 3 right now. Still, nostalgic fans are always there.

There's no reason to remake them when you can still port Pokemon from the GBA cartridges to BW (in a roundabout way).

I'd rather have Gen VI only because i want a graphics update. After the graphics update then game freak can remake Gen III.

If you have a DSphat/DSlite, the GBA games, and any of the 4th gen games.

I doubt every B/W owner has all of these.

Can't they update the graphics on Grey, assuming it'll be released on the 3DS? Gen 6 is too far away for a Gen 3 remake. Gen 5 started a few months ago.

I'd totally be up for it... the third generation was my favorite. :)

I don't think Nintendo (or Gamefreak) really cares. They really don't seem to care that the only way to transfer Pokemon within a generation is with multiple DSes either, and most DS owners only have one DS.

The fact is it's still possible, so there really isn't much of a point. Besides that, with online, there's a way to get the Pokemon very easily.

Hmm... I see your point. :P

They do gain millions of dollars for every game they release. I guess that's the only reason why they'll release it.

Emerald is my all time favorite pokemon game. It's simply the best.

As far as I can tell, the original GBA games are still selling fairly well, seeing as their still sold at retail for about $30. :P I feel like the games wouldn't sell as well because of the fact that the games are still usable in the current generation, so people don't necessarily have to buy them. Not to mention their's still the part where the game has to be developed and produced, which costs money, where simply making and shipping the GBA games has to be dirt cheap now. I'm sure money would be made, but I would bet that it wouldn't be anywhere near as much as other Pokemon titles for these reasons and others.

I kinda hoped they made some Black/White expansion.

They probably will. It's easy money for them and they have always done that. There's no reason for not doing it.

Agreed. Still, I'm sure some people want the remake and I might torture myself into buying it. Here's the biggest hint we've got-

2003 R/S

2004 FR/LG

2007 D/P

2010 HG/SS

They've released a remake of 2 gens prior soon after the new gen. That said, it isn't a pattern until you hit 3. Also, there is no need for a R/S/E remake since you physically can transfer pokemon from Gen 3 to Gen 5.

I would love to see remakes of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald.

I agree. There was just a lot more to do in those games compared to the later ones. Plus there were more towns too.

why didn't they make pokemon black for 3ds. it would be selling a ton right now. a pokemon game at launch. come on nintendo, whos doing the marketing over there.

#27 Posted by Mii_ller (238 posts) -

There is a pattern with Pokemon remakes.

1st gen remade in 3rd gen, 2nd gen remade in 4th gen, I guess it would only make sense to remake 3rd gen in 5th gen.

If they do remake 3rd gen, they should have it on the 3DS. 3DS sales would take off then.
