  3. Why would people be interested in sinnoh remakes if they won't have a nat dex?
Remakes (not counting let's go as it wasn't a mainline game anyways especially since it cannot trade with alola) always had all pokemon up to that point
If locking online play behind a paywall with irrelevant games is a service then bricking your phone and not removing the brick without a fee is also a service.

The same reasons I would be interested in it if it had the national Dex? To explore the region again?

I hope you know they will very likely use the Platinum Sinnoh Dex to avoid that issue again.

Sinnoh had a decent Pokedex to begin with, so even without National Dex it would still be fine. Not as exciting, but fine.

Meanwhile we would gain graphical upgrades to an already interesting region, potential removal of HM dependence (PLEASE), and the old story under the more developed battle system. It has some merit.

I'd hope so, but they didn't use the Emerald dex in ORAS, so it may not be exactly likely.

They would need to rework the dex overall. Each of the 3 version had issues. Diamond and Pearl had a barebones dex while Platinum had important Pokemon like Glameow, Stunky, Misdreavus, and Murkrow being uncatchable. The ideal Pokedex would be somewhere in the middle of all three games.

wait... this might be a dumb question but the sinnoh starters will have to make it into the swsh dex right? how else would they be able to make a sinnoh remake?

With this whole Dexit, it's not even sure if SwoShi and Gen4 remakes will share the same dex and can battle with one another...

...because we can't just assume the whole Sinnoh dex is confirmed to be in SwoShi, right?
Hella strange.

They'll probably start making Switch-quality sprites of Sinnoh Pokémon when it's time to make the remake - IIRC they mentioned they'll use all the previous Pokémon in the future, but the Nat dex will never be a thing again. We'll only get regional dexes for all upcoming games so for Sinnoh we'll get Sinnoh mons, for Unova Unova mons, for Kalos Kalos mons, etc.

ohhhh i see... so we're getting just sinnoh mons for the sinnoh remake. but that's kinda weird... because isn't the issue that they don't have the time to make quality sprites for all of the pokemon? I mean, the way i see it, if they can make the entire sinnoh dex for the sinnoh remake, shouldn't they be able to reuse those sprites for the main games as well?
