Pokemon Gold/Silver remakes?

Caroline found this on the SFX forums


Could a Gold and Silver remake be heading our way? It's the only Pokemon RPG I haven't played through yet so I'm naturally all for this

edit: If SkyBlue comes in here and tells me this has already been debunked then I will sob :*

The real-world time & day cued events in this game were a lot of fun. Gold's the only one I played all the way, and I really enjoyed it.

Last two Pokemon-related games I ever played. Unfortunately, my copy of Silver has as corrupt battery save, so I can never save.

Its definitely possible considering how profitable Pokemon games are and how they already remade Red/Blue with successful results.

You think they're done with adding new Pokemon? I dunno, I'd prefer saving some cartridge space for things like say the sounds of the Pokemon from the cartoon, some 3D battles, and maybe more player-involved battle system (something like the Paper Mario series where you're more involved).

Instead of selling me a game, repackaged with everything from the previous versions with a few hundred new Pokemon, how about some real innovation in the way of gameplay? All you gives us is online battling and trading.

The two hours I invested in Pearl last weekend was such a drag. It was slow. I didn't want to even think about picking up Ruby/Sapphire or FireRed/LeafGreen just so I can get some of my old school Pokemon back.

All in all, I was disappointed by Pearl/Diamond and hardly have respect for the Pokemon brand any longer with the same old rehashes in the way of Pokemon RPGs and console games.

EDIT: Time for some major bubble busting:

FAKE!

It's a very slow game yes. The story only really picks up once you beat the 7th gym. The addiction of Pokemon (for me) lies in building an absolutely custom team that gets more and more variables added with every new set of Pokemon they stick in, and then facing off against your mates.
I do think this will be the last main Pokemon (short of a remake) we see in this style. We're talking DS2 here. I think Pearl and Diamond are the perfect send-offs for the previous Pokemon form, it definitely feels that way with storyline (spoiler! whats left for the enemy team to want to destroy or take over).

edit: booo a fake. I'll cry myself off with the 8th gym on Pearl.

Gold & Silver were always my favourite Pokemon games, and Totodile is my favourite starter, so i would naturally love to see this come true, and despite this particular image being fake, I am sure that Nintendo will not miss such an easy chance of making a lot of money.
Gold & Silver will be remade.

The same happened to my brother's copy of Pokemon Silver, but I fixed it by putting it in an old Game Boy and leaving it turned on 'till it fully used some AAs. It's internal battery is now recharged and it can once again save.
EDIT: Sorry about that, i just checked it again 2 weeks later, and it has wiped the file again. Well it did keep it for a few days.
