Comments: HG/SS isn't coming to the Switch!

Seriously? This is news?

Game Freak have renewed their Trademark on the names HeartGold and SoulSilver, leading everyone and their mother to believe the iconic games are coming to the Switch. I'm calling it right here, this is NOT the case.

We haven't even gotten the Crown Tundra yet, yet "leakers" are saying "this is coming, that is coming" like always. If we do see any news, and if the past is anything to go on, GF has a pattern, it's basically game, remake, game. While that description isn't 100% accurate, it's general enough.

One thing though; the pattern was broken by The Isle of Armo(u)r and the Crown Tundra.

This is a list of possible games and their reasons behind them.

1: Diamond/Pearl/Platinum Remakes - The last remakes(save for LGP/LGE) were Ruby and Sapphire's Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire respectively, which brought us back to see Hoenn in a new perspective. It stands to reason the next remakes are D/P with Platinum's story thrown in there like Emerald into ORAS. This is what I would like to see, since I put 999+ hours into Diamond back in the day(my most played Pokémon game).

2: Generation 9 - They might just skip the remakes altogether before coming out with the next generation of Pokémon. Anything is on the table honestly(with some exceptions, see title of post), with DLC 2 dropping in the next couple months, we will definitely have another non-zero amount of gameplay for SwSh. Jokes aside, GF might just go straight to gen 9, and go for D/P remakes after that, possibly more polished, so I'm not against it.

3: DLC 3 - Rumors of a 3rd DLC have been floating around, which I could see happening in lieu of remakes/ultra swsh. It's unexplored territory at this point. GF might have more ideas to cram into Galar, and I'm not against it.

Last but not least, 4: Johto - Will GF make a new game set in Johto ala Let's GO? Or remake a remake? This is the least likely of what could happen, at least in my opinion.

What do you think? The Forum is closed but the comments should work.
