* DudeWheresMyRespect:
** Actually ''averted'', though not to the degree of ''X and Y'', in the remakes ''Omega Ruby'' and ''Alpha Sapphire''. Your accomplishments in this game, from stopping Groudon/Kyogre to becoming Champion, are all acknowledged in game. Your claim to fame as Champion is even mentioned on the [=BuzzNav=] postgame, and everyone refers to you as the new Champion, while calling Steven the former Champion; [[spoiler: it's a point of contention, in fact, for Zinnia, who sees you, and not Steven, as worthy of being her ally, due to your status]].
** [[spoiler: Additionally, in a similar vein to the Johto games, you are named the Successor to the will of the Draconids; essentially taking over Zinnia's role as Lorekeeper, and the protector of the entire Hoenn region.]]
