    I'm also getting alpha sapphire. I guess the abbreviations can be XYORAS
    I wonder why they decided to go with omega and alpha. I like the names but the Greek thing throws me off but then again heart and soul didn't mean much in HGSS.

    HOENN CONFIRMED!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, had to get that out of my system. I'm SO pumped for this! Hoenn was one of the best regions, and I can't wait to explore Fortree City (my favorite Hoenn city; best design and music EVER) in 3D!

    I don't know what "a brand new region" means...maybe it's Hoenn, but with more areas? And Groudon and Kyogre sure do look mysterious. I don't think they look like Mega Evolutions, though; they're just colored a little differently. Mega Evolutions tend to look pretty drastically different than the original Pokemon. I wonder if they'll be compatible in terms of battling and trading with XY? If they are, that would explain the Lati Mega Stones (as the Latis were introduced in Gen III), but that would also mean that there aren't any new Megas, because if there were, they would be in the XY coding.

    EDIT: In response to the person above men, "Alpha" and "Omega" mean "Beginning" and "End", since they're the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. In Gen III, the story was about world destruction and rebirth, wasn't it?

    I'd also like to point out that the use of letters in the title is apparently to be similar to X & Y.


    And that it is possible that Hoenn and another region will be in these games.

    Those don't need to be remade for a long time, especially since we can still play them on a 3DS.

    So to resume, when the 3DS will be replaced by the next generation if it doesn't die because of mobile gaming.


    I'm really Hyped about this remake. I know it's still dumb to buy it in my case since I still own a DS and the ruby cartdrige, but I know I will buy it either way. I liked Ruby and Saphire the most and replayed this game so many times. Also, I'm among those people who actually liked the female design (she's my favorite along with the black/white one).

    Though, new region? *Gasp!* Are we going to explore the future Hoenn the same way we rediscovered Kanto in Silver/Gold? That would be awsome. (Imagining what would the underwater field and Sootopolis would look like in 3D.)

    Look closely at Kyogre and Groudon. Theyre not the original designs. I cant say for sure, but they look like they could be mega formes.

    I can't remember when was the last time I was that happy because of Pokemon. Man, RS were my favourite games of all time, and I sure missed them. I'm so buying it.

    It is definitely true that there is a difference in their designs. However, none of the Mega Evolutions so far have looked that similar. These look like they have been "repainted," if you will.

    Seems to indicate something interesting, but it's not clear what.

    plot twist: the games don't take place in hoenn
    jk but I do hope that they extend the battle frontier to a larger mini region like the battle zone in platinum.
    speaking of which I actually wonder if they'll bring the battle frontier back a all.

    I didn't even "squee" for X and Y. I can "squee" for this. Hoenn was and is my favorite region. This is the best news I've heard in months. And they're coming out in November, so soon. It's not that long of a wait. It ought to be fantastic to get to conquer the Hoenn Battle Frontier with all of the updated game mechanics since the original RSE games.

    Oh, childlike joy~

    I'm unbelievably excited for these! It's been a long wait, but finally!

    And about that "brand new region," it could easily be just a marketing thing where they appeal to those who weren't into pokemon at the time of the originals. That and appealing to the 10-year olds in order to get them into it.

    I totally wish on that...

    Anyway I'm NOT too big of a fan for Hoenn but I'm interested what gamefreak has to offer in the new remade version.

    well they said brand new world not region which is entirely different as brand new world could mean like a new looking environment because of the new graphics. new region would literally mean new region. regardless I'm excited for these things. I hope they bring back the large amounts of version exclusives because XY didn't have many besides mega stones which honestly are very hard to trade for because they're very very exclusive. one per game.

    dhjwkjdnwndjwmxlwajashwjdwjxjqrtdjgbeololsjsjw <--- My exact reaction.

    I'm super excited for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I still remember playing the originals and how awesome they were when they came out. Too bad we don't get any actual game play, but it's cool, at least Hoenn is confirmed!!

    I'm excited about this news for 2 reasons:

    1) I hope, since the original R/S games had in-game events, that the new games will be a return to in-game event storylines. There was just something awesome about actually battling and catching a darkrai or deoxys after unlocking a secret area or storyline - especially when compared to events now, where you just talk to a pokecenter npc and are given the event poke. I understand why the current method is preferred in terms of rnging and acquiring the "perfect" event pokemon, but in my mind its taken something away from the heart of the game.

    2) Also, with the release of R/S remakes, we finally can avoid the "OMG will it be Hoenn?!" posters ever time any announcement is occurring

    Likely so; it wouldn't really be Hoenn without them.

    I'd make a bet that we're looking at a November 21st release for these games. Not only is it a friday which is quite a common day for releasing games but it's the 12th anniversary of Ruby and Sapphire's JP release date.

    I wonder if they'll bring over the character customization feature back. Due to Ruby and Sapphire only having the choices of May or Brenden.
