To be honest, i saw this sorta coming because there where rumors that nintendo leaked some info about these remakes a long time ago.
Yeah its cool and all but, the main thing i don't like is that if i buy it, all of my Pokés are in Diamond. I wished they made a "Pokémon Box" for the wii. They made one for the GC a long time ago. It wasn't exactly a game but rather an expension to store your pokemon, with a few extra's.
Oni, there is already a Pokémon Box for the Wii, it's Called "My Pokémon Ranch, and it is a wiiware "game".
I don't like the names of these remakes, but I'm curious how these new games will be. I hope they don't create more of those stupid pokemon you can only get in events and that the newer generations are not dominating the game.
I really liked the old silver/gold and I still play them sometimes. I liked the fact that you can go to kanto to explore a completly new world and if Nintendo also adds the hoen and sinnoh region i'm the happiest pokemonfan ever .
I also don't like the names, but, who cares? Everyone knows they'll end up being called pokemon Gold DS and Silver DS. lol.
Celebii will be an event pokémon, most certainly. It has been an event pokémon since the beggining(unless in Japan, where it came in the Bonus Disc of pokémon Colosseum, if you pre-ordered it(we got Jirachi, who was also on Pokémon Channel), so, apart from that instance, it was only obtainable via event or cheating)
I will buy it as soon as it is released in the USA, and most certainly, I'll play the Japanese version in my flashcart
