Okay hear me out.
I always figured that the reason Red was at Mt. Silver in Gold / Silver / Crystal was because.. Well, that's who you played as in the original Red / Blue / Green, right? And it was sort of like, making you battle, yourself.. Or yr older self. From the previous games. Y'know.
But when the option of playing as a girl (Leaf) in FireRed / LeafGreen came out, and then HeartGold and SoulSilver came out..
I thought that if you played as Lyra in HeartGold / SoulSilver, you'd battle Leaf at Mt. Silver. Because, the assumption would be, if you were playing as a girl now, you would have been playing as a girl then, right?
If you played as Ethan in HeartGold and SoulSilver, you'd VS Red. if you played as Lyra, you'd VS Leaf.
I thought it would've been cool. Then we could've seen Leaf in the tournaments in Black & White 2..
What do you guys think.
