I just checked the 3ds confirmation topic...
According to "reaverz", provided he's right, gen v r/s remakes are likely out of the picture because of the unfortunate aspect of separate internet settings between 3ds and DSPh/DSLite/DSi/XL...
^ Although you can play ds games online on a 3ds due to backwards-compatbility, unless I'm wrong, there is no such thing as a later-system game that communicates w/ past-handheld games for inter-generation games unless that experience is a result of internal coding that allows it, rather than running on different online system altogether on the later-system side vs. the past-handheld side.
^ Due to such differences, if it's true that the wireless and wi-fi settings are separate between DSPh/DSLite/DSi/XL vs. 3ds games, I don't see gen v r/s remakes working w/ black/white 1 OR Black/White 2 if the r/s remakes boot only on the 3ds, not to mention that since the DSPh/DSLite/DSi/XL is considered a "dead system" since the 3DS succeeded it as its eventual replacement as the 1st party's system focus, it's likely that nobody would buy it as "last-generation junk" if r/s remakes are made on all ds systems vs. just the 3ds, so that will likely mean players will have to make a decision: when r/s original had to forgo Gen I + Gen II connectivity w/ R/S due to technological obstacles between the two generations, should I have to catch and train new pokemon other than the ones I have already caught in black and white, 1 and/or 2? Not to mention it won't make sense to introduce a new generation w/o introducing new pokemon species, new characters, and a new plot for the new games that start a new generation.
So, hate to burst your bubble, I know it's early, but given internet setting differences when it comes to the possibility of r/s remakes vs. brand-new, if only premature, gen VI games, tomorrow will likely bring a sad ending to gen V when you hear first details of games that will force you to start over completely on pokemon-collecting, unless you want to be behind the times. However, if you want to get the latest information, you can't avoid it when it comes to tech obstacles, so unless you want to get rejected over unwillingness to upgrade, please live with it..
