GSC was most near everyone's favorite. Sure I got Ruby and Sapphire and Platinum and they are nice and all but just don't stick with me. I had played Fire Red much longer because of the memories and it was a remake of a classic. I will feel the same about this remake of HG/SS, though not the same nostalgia feeling, there are still the memories and the first two generations were the best.
Though... GSC did seem rather short even though it had Johto and Kanto, the areas were rather empty and there was very little preventing you from the next gym. I am hopeful that they add more events and story in between gyms and more to do before you can go to the next gym. Obviously for the maps to be better as well. Just that was long ago and I am sure the gameboy color cartridge could not hold that much memory and they sort of rushed it at the end. But this time, with this day and age, they SHOULD add more story and events and things to do. I know they will update with how pokemon games are now with berries and their stats and moves. And I am pretty sure they are gonna try to keep it wi-fi compatible with DPPt.
Are there gonna be new moves? New pokemon evolutions of older pokemon? Who knows? We will just have to wait until more information shows up about all this. They better not disappoint. Though I know there are alot of you out there who don't like Nintendo for doing this or that, but think about it, with everyone getting ROMs of their new games they lose out on money so this only tries to level it out. So blame yourselves?
