I'm playing Omega Ruby right now, I think it is a nice remake of the original Ruby, and I've bought alpha sapphire for my gf that never played the original sapphire. This remakes are better for these kind of people, they never experienced Hoenn so it's cool, but for we that already played the shit out of that region is just a cool walk in nostalgia and nothing more. Heart Gold/Soul Silver were better remakes since they added a lot of things, here we just have the same game in better graphics. And without things that were present back then. WOW.
>>24586473 They aren't. Between the Emerald content they left out and the RS content they left out/dumbed down, they aren't even the pinnacle of Hoenn.
It's a common answer, I know, but HGSS is the pinnacle in my eyes. It has most of the big improvements to Pokémon battle engine-wise, it kept pretty much everything from HGSS, kept almost ALL the Crystal content, patched up Kanto to include the majority of cut locations, and then added new features on top of that like the Pokéathlon. So much shit to do, and it had (relatively limited) online functionality too.
And Emerald added content other than the story changes. I don't have a fancy list for it, but some things off the top of my head include
>double battles with more than two Pokémon on the opponent's team >Mirage Tower >Battle Tents >expanded Safari Zone >Trainer Hill
As well as the entirety of the Battle Frontier.
There were also a ton of little things added to Emerald that are technically in the remake just because they've been in every game since Emerald, like the Everstone passing down Natures in breeding and some abilities like Flame Body having overworld effects.

same can be said about the image
>pokemon all given animations carried over emerald/platinum >sneasel and unown w carried over platinum >trainers battled over night carried from dppt >battle frontier carried over from platinum >poke seer useless since you can now watch where you caught your pokemon and at which level >move tutors carried from emerald/platinum >female player has been a thing since crystal, not an unique feature, besides they put Lyra, not Kris
which only leaves us with crystal features such as:
the aesthetic changes the beasts themes >buena's password kurt making multiple balls suicune and eusine and the espeed dratini
>>24586822 >female character Appears in every game since crystal hurr durr
>move tutors Doesnt count if its just copypasting the ones from Platinum. ORAS added them from XY, which had exactly none. And when Z comes out, you bet your sweet bippy it'll probably not have any new tutors that ORAS doesnt either, because those are a generational thing and occur only at the end of the gen.
>>24587888 god no white 2 was fucking bullshit you have no freedom at fucking all
>want to go to castelia >do this bullshit cinema shit first >cant go to route 4 or most places because retarded excuses like hurr durr some day we will stop dancing or the roggenrola guy or the janitor on the marine tube or the bridge to route 15 fucking retarded
>>24587972 I have to agree here, Dancing for No Reason was dumb, but BW2 at least wasn't as bad as XY in terms of railroading. Dancing for No Reason made me roll my eyes, but a Team Flare grunt telling me "come back here when you have four badges" seemed like an insult.
