    I'd buy it if it was open world, filling in all the gaps between routes and cities with new shit to explore.

    It's supposed to capitalize on nostalgia, but we learned from Let's Go! that translating 1:1 in 3D but with new mechanics like roaming Pokemon doesn't work because it's small and cluttered. But just doing a near-identical remake but with 3D models like BDSP is equally lame and feels pointless.

    Give me the familiar in a new presentation. Make the pathway the same so people going in know, "Oh yeah, after you defeat Brock ,you go to Mt. Moon!" but redesign all the towns. Take some influence from how the anime designed the towns, change up some Pokemon locations (It was nice in Lets Go you had things like rare Bulbasaur spawns in Viridian forest). Add a few more special event Pokemon so it's not just Snorlax to mix it up a little.

    Also, don't get rid of the fucking features people like in the game, such as abilities, breeding, and the ability to catch Pokemon normally and not with Go! mechanics. I wish PLA's catching mechanics would become a staple, maybe it will in the future, who knows.

    >Slowpoke can Fish similar to how Headbutt overworld ability would work.

    >New Mega forms for Kanto Pokémon, New Sevii Island variants of Kanto Pokémon, New evolutions and pre-evolutions, and branch evolutions for some Kanto Pokémon.
    >Retcon Slowpokes evolution criteria to be from fishing and catching a shellder.
    >Add Turbann as a Shellder evolution if given a Slowpoke tail to hold.
    >No Natures, EV's, or IV's.
    >Romance mechanics like Harvest Moon.
    >Your home in pallet is a homestead every new Pokémon you catch is added to the homestead/ ranch.
    >Homestead has a berry field.
    >Mew obtainable under the car once Pokédex is 100% complete. Or on Birth Island.
    >Multiple Arbok patterns.
    >Shinies overhauled to be thought out, mostly being black, white, or inspired by other evolution forms. (Dratini colored Dragonite or white Gengar)

    Instead of a remake of Red's story, why not do a game from the perspective of a young Prof. Oak? Kind of like the Celebi movie. That would be way more interesting imo.
    It's hinted that Agatha and Oak know each other from their younger years. You could also expand the lore of the "Pokemon war" that Lt. Surge was in.

    Honestly, OP? I would rather another Gen 1 remake than a Gen 5 remake at this rate.

    Legends Arceus style gameplay with the first 251 Pokemon only.

    Game that isn't actually a remake of Gen 1, but a spoof of RPGs that came before it, primarily Dragon Quest for battle mechanics and MegaTen for first-person dungeons. Does overcorrection in the trying to look like old anime to the point of not just Cue Balls wearing armor parts and having the Pokedex being a cumbersome gauntlet. Ideally species would revert back to their Gen 1 sprite designs, but that might be an issue with Jynx.

    for it to not be a remake, but a sequel. new story, new characters as well as some old ones and a different direction to progress the map in. if we're gonna get a fucking THIRD remake, it should be something new this time around.

    At the very least? More music instead of just the Trainer Theme. They already have Team Rocket battle theme, use it.

    An expanded dex with more than 151 and a Johto postgame. That’s literally all I want.

    Making it a sequel or something would also be cool. Maybe that way they can include more Pokemon without fucking their "only 151 have been discovered at the time of gen 1" autism
