January 8th will be a big day for Pokemon fans, as the official Facebook page announced that pokemon.com will be revealing something huge. Rumors immediately began circulating as to what exactly this news could be, with people suggesting either an entire new generation of games or remakes of Pokemon Ruby Version and Sapphire Version.

Looking back at previous releases, a remake of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire would make the most sense, as Nintendo has made remakes of previous versions before a new generation of Pokemon was created. Shortly after the original Ruby and Sapphire versions were released for the Game Boy Advance, versions Fire Red and Leaf Green were created, which were remakes of the very first Pokemon games. Once the Nintendo DS came out, Pokemon versions Diamond and Pearl were released in 2006, followed by versions Soul Silver and Heart Gold (remakes of Silver and Gold, respectively), and Platinum. Black and White were released in 2010, with direct sequels released in 2012.

If Nintendo is to follow the schedule they've been following for years, we should expect to see remakes of Ruby and Sapphire announced tomorrow.

If Nintendo is to follow this plan we should expect to see remakes of Ruby and Sapphire. A new generation is not out of the question, but Nintendo usually releases those after three to four years, and it hasn’t even been three years since Black and White came out. However the fifth generation has been moving fairly quickly, with sequels already on store shelves.

Nintendo is always tight-lipped about their secrets, so don’t expect anything to get leaked before tomorrow, but remember to check back once the news is officially announced.
