Rumor: Pokemon Gen. Four Remakes

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday!

With the coming holidays, there are a plethora of new video game releases that are on our radar. Most are new but some are remastered versions of older games that we had loved. Now there are rumors of another remake…

Pokemon is one of our favorite franchises, probably one of the first that truly got us into gaming on a regular basis. The Yellow, Red, and Blue trio were my first games for my Game Boy Color, and Rachel joined me in on the Pokemon adventure with Gold, Silver, and Crystal. The first generation of Pokemon has been remade a couple of times — with FireRed and LeafGreen, then most recently with the Let’s Go duo — and the second and third generation games have also been given makeovers.

There has always been clamor for the fourth generation of games — Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum in the Sinnoh region — to be remade as well. The fourth generation of Pokemon games was one of the most acclaimed with the Pokemon world, with it introducing the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to allow trainers from all over the world to communicate, as well as updating the graphics, battle and contest mechanics, and introducing the most Legendary Pokemon in a generation.

According to a recent rumor, the Sinnoh region may yet still be remade.

Granted, the rumor is due to a Pokemon merchandise online store noticing that a slew of Sinnoh merch is slated to come within the next year or so. Saturating the market with fourth generation Pokemon toys would help with marketing when it comes to remakes. Considering the next core Pokemon games are being released in November, a remake of the fourth generation could be the next Pokemon game on Nintendo’s to-do list. In all seriousness, Nintendo may not have to do any market ploy for the generation four remakes, not with how much fans have wanted these remakes for years.

With that said, while I’ve always enjoyed the remakes, my favorite Pokemon games were the third-tiers, which haven’t been a thing since the original Pokemon Platinum game back in 2009. We’ll get the remakes, whenever they get released, and we’ll probably enjoy them just as much as we enjoy the others.

Top Tuesday: Sinnoh Pokemon

Rachel Mii Double JumpIt’s Tuesday again and I haven’t done a Top Tuesday all month… Wow!

Anyway, to keep up the pace with the other months, here’s another Pokemon-related Top Tuesday.

 

Top Tuesday: Sinnoh Pokemon

5. Garchomp

I don’t normally train dragon Pokemon, but Garchomp and his two previous evolutions are wonderful. I also love the names. They have the best names. 

4. Glaceon

Like dragon types, I don’t normally raise ice types. But I absolutely love Glaceon’s design and I’d be nuts if I didn’t put an Eevee-lution on this list somewhere.

3. Roserade

I always looked at Roserade to be pretty majestic. She’s cute, she looks pretty, and I’m sure she smells pretty too. Yet, she definitely packs a wallop.

2. Luxray

Luxray is a beast!

1. Infernape

I’m sure you guys all think I cheat because I’m pretty sure I’ve had the fire starter as my number one for all of these lists… But hey. They’re my favorite for a reason.

What are your favorite Pokemon from Sinnoh?
