Nothing besides cover art and names so far, but it's official:
All those RS Remakes jokes/memes, all those doubters, do you see them now? I didn't think so.
HOENN REMAKES CONFIRMED FOR REALZ THIS TIME!
...after thinking about it for a moment, while I know it won't happen (I don't recall the "third game" ever getting a remake), it would be hilarious to the TCG community to see Delta Emerald, just for all the jokes about "Delta" Pokémon (...not actual Pokémon delta in the video games, of course).
I'm ok with any excuse to bring back Delta Species to the TCG
I'd just be happy to see the 3rd gen design team come back to the TCG with the 3rd gen remakes.
A guy can dream...
I'm calling it now - we get Berries as held items again, Mega Absol, and a Team Magma/Aqua expansion for the TCG.
I'd actually be perfectly ok with that...
Held Items were a great idea for the TCG but poorly implemented and rarely affected gameplay.
If they cut down on the ridiculous amount of surfing in R/S and brought back day/night I would be happy. It would be nice if the evil teams weren't so stupid and Wally was less of an annoying little wuss.
Also, they can get rid of those stupid secret base things. Seriously, I want to catch and battle Pokemon, not spend time buying furniture and dolls.
We should get some new Mega Pokemon in these games.
Two of those three things would be awesome. Berries just don't do it for me though.
I'm gonna disagree. Secret Bases were AWESOME.
Also Held Items are essentially Tools now. So I can see them bringing them back like that.
Back in the DP era (NOT the RS one, funnily enough), they were more like mini Powers/Abilities
Tbh, I didn't mind the amount of surfing in R/S/E. It was the ridiculous spawn rates of Pokemon while surfing =P. If they changed that, then I wouldn't mind it quite as much.
Pretty sure that was Sinnoh, not Kanto. But yes, it was fairly silly.
You're thinking of the underground bases from D/P/P. B_M was referring to the secret bases that could be created using Secret Power on different features in the terrain in R/S/E. They were the precursors to the bases in D/P/P.
Heh, this is why I don't comment on VG...
Hmm... if Team Aqua and Team Magma did make a comeback, I wouldn't mind some "revising" of their schemes. As I understood them (bring back ancient legendary Pokémon, make planet all covered in earth/water) they seemed to have some massive holes.
Then again, that was around the time I just stopped paying attention to the story in the games and the cartoon, so I probably missed something. Creating your own landmass in the middle of some ocean (without paving over the entire planet) actually makes for an interesting indirect weapon (displaced water flooding coastlines) plus (for whatever other faults the film had) Lex Luthor was totally right about the value of land.
If Kyogre could create freshwater, weaponized flooding is still a thing, but that is an amazing resource to have (unless other Pokémon can do it as well).
Well if you haven't noticed all water type Pokemon just vomit up water by the gallons so I guess they all can do it.
I always assumed there was a reason trainers don't just drink from the fountains of their pokemon's attacks. I always assumed that water attacks worked like ground attacks and solarbeam does in the show. You have to manipulate something in order to use it. If a pokemon can absorb enough sunlight to concentrate into a explosive beam, then it's just as conceivable that they can absorb the moisture/air/hydrogen around them at a similar rate turning it to pressurized liquid of any temperature seen fit.
I don't think it just sits in them and flows out on command.
But Kyogre and Groudon can influence the atmosphere at will and bring about 2 resources in abundance. It does make more sense to war over control of that.
