* Why aren't there any female Triathletes in the remakes? The lack of female Psychics is at least explainable; Hex Maniacs became a DistaffCounterpart to the class in Gen VI. Yet there's no reason as to why they cut the female Triathletes.

** I figured it was because they also added in several trainer classes that weren't in the original games (like Street Thugs, Delinquents, Fairy Girls, etc.). Plus they had all the various Kalos classes in the Battle Maison, right? Maybe they just didn't want to have even more trainer classes lying around in the code.

** Probably because Glalie is commonly agreed by players to be [[MasterOfNone rather underwhelming]]. Froslass isn't super-great either, but her [[FragileSpeedster increased speed]] compared to Glalie made her stand out a lot more in comparison (at least at the time). A boost for Frosslass would definitely be nice, but she needs one "less" than Glalie did.

** Groudon and Kyogre are not depicted as hellbent on wiping out life so much as slaves to their desire to absorb natural energy and fulfill their purpose in the world (to create more land and water respectively). Without masses of natural energy messing with and overwhelming their minds they are apparently as reasonable as other legendaries, and are even noted to have saved human societies in the past from droughts and floods respectively.

So one could assume that while heading into the Cave of Origin they may have been so single-mindedly focused on their goal (the energy within) that they didn't even take notice of the player character grabbing onto them.

Added DiffLines:

** If the original [[spoiler: Aster ''was'' Zinnia's daughter, there's no telling how young Aster was; she could have been a year or two old, for all we know]]. Zinnia could plausibly be a young-looking 18-20 year old. Putting her somewhere in the late teens could HandWave the ambiguous in-game references to her age, anyway.


Added DiffLines:

** Belle Pikachu's dress looks rather heavy and warm, doesn't it? Perhaps a loose connection to a [[IncrediblyLamePun cold]] move like Icicle Crash.

* Why Mega Glalie and no Mega Froslass? Why in fact, did Gallade not get a Mega until after Gardevoir? Did they purposely split up the Pokemon who evolve by Dawn Stone?

*** Voltorb flip was a lousy game though. If Game Freak were to make the game corner more like an arcade, and include Pokemon-themed minigames based on arcade classics, the game corner would be RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap.

*** Voltorb flip was a lousy game though. If Game Freak were to make the game corner more like an arcade, as in what I'm sure what most of us were thinking of at first when we saw something called a 'game corner' in our Pokemon game, and include Pokemon-themed minigames based on arcade classics, the game corner would be RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap.

** That's basically what they did in HeartGold/SoulSilver. It was a 'card flip' minigame. The problem was it was rather boring and while you couldn't lose coins, it took forever to get enough coins to get anything, verses the original game corner only needing an hour or so to get the top prize Porygon. Presumably Game Freak just threw up their hands and said screw it and got rid of it completely.
