I'm the one who added the "The balance of power has shifted" quote. If any of you still have the promotional materials that came in the box of Pokémon Emerald, the source of the quote is located on a poster/pamphlet that features this image of the Weather Trio (Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza).

Will they remake this one? Thoughts?

Hopefully so. With FRLG and HGSS each being gold mines, and 5th generation out now, I see no reason for them not to. Can you imagine Hoenn redone with 5th generation graphics? The scale of the region is really so massive, it would without a doubt be the best looking game yet. Besides, I really want to have an excuse for another Ruby/Sapphire chapter in Pokémon Special.

FRLG and HGSS were made because there would be no way to catch 'em all within their generations otherwise. (Ho-Oh and Lugia were catchable by Gen III event or the GameCube games. Since the DS cannot directly link with the GameCube...)

RS remakes would not be necessary, except for possibly a Deoxys event which can easily be done in the third Unova game anyway. Groudon and Latios are catchable in SoulSilver, Kyogre and Latias are catchable in HeartGold, and Rayquaza and the Hoenn starters are in both. The Regis were event-only in Gen IV and will likely stay that way if RS are not remade.

I could also see Emerald being remade as well if Ruby and Sapphire are, due to Magma & Aqua being in separate games.

Considering that elements of Crystal were incorporated into HGSS, it probably would be that Emerald's storyline would be incorporated into MRAS(Magma Ruby Aqua Sapphire, what I will refer to them from now on as), most likely by having both teams compete, only whichever team manages to summon their legend depends on the version. Also, a remake is probable, in my opinion, as in the 3rd Generation Game Freak needed to make the other legends available somehow that didn't seem forced, e.g. suddenly making them all available in the main region. The same was done with Generation IV, and is likely to occur for Generation V. What's more, fans have come to expect remakes after the third Generation, and would feel a little disappointed without it. Most importantly, Cash Cow Franchise. That is all.

Well, it looks like you have your answer.

For the curious, it was decided on Pokémon's discussion page that we should split each generation onto their own pages.
