Gives 'em the slip..
Water hardness is measured by the amount of minerals a water has in it. Apparently the water in Kalos is very hard.

It's a bit deluded to claim you're the only one who has read that paper.
At first I read that as "It's a bit diluted to..." thinking you were making a awesome pun. Now I'm dissapointed...

Anybody else simply stoked about diving!? Actually, I was hoping we'd get to dive around Unova's bays, but I'm always happy to return to diving around Hoenn! Actual diving, with Relicanths, seaweed, and random Clamperl sounds.

Not drowning in spiral in a race to the finish to find copper tiarAs.

I've always loved Hoenn. Always. When I got my hands on a copy of Ruby a hundred years ago, I loved just about everything about it: the all new Pokémon, the music, the updated gameplay and most of all, the region of Hoenn itself. So vibrant and lively and tropical and huge. ORAS brought this feeling back. There was something that made me a bit sad, though - it seems like Hoenn is... I dunno, smaller somehow? To be honest, I was expecting the addition of some Sevii-type islands or something similar to the new Johto routes in HGSS. Alas, no, nothing of that sort - except for a stray new path here and there (behind the Fortree gym with the TM ball for example) and some redesigns (the Safari Zone etc.). I also feel more could've been done with the diving. But hey, it's still Hoenn. Finally in 3D. And I still love it.

I have to agree, it feels like it's lacking in new areas, and the Mirage Spots don't really make up for it because they're so small. It's a shame, because the islands near the Battle Frontier would've been good for a Sevii Islands type post game section.

I agree tbh. Hoenn could've done with several more new areas imho. Having an explorable archipelago around the Battle Resort or some new routes would've been nice.

See, I would've loved to have a bigger Safari Zone (or at least one with multiple layers). That for me was a giant missed opportunity as minus the aspect of using two bikes to get that item, you don't really do much there. An archipelago around the battle resort could've been useful, as could've more islands added which you could only get to via boat (like in FRLG, only more expansive).

Most of the land routes seem bigger, or wider to me.

The only thing that felt smaller was the Safari Zone, and some of the sea routes around the end. The Safari in particular is kinda disappointing, with the lack of that post-game expanded area, and lower number of Pokemon...

Nah the screenshots are pretty wonky too. That Battle Tower looks all kinds of wrong for a 3D remaster.

I can't even say "Nice try".

Just kind of reminds me of bitter that situation is.

Masuda already explained that GF didn't believe that the Frontier was necessary in OR/AS or something along those lines. So we're not getting it as DLC.

And we are still in the time where nintendo is promoting heavily those games,Ex: the nintendo promotion to get a free game, Pokemon events , Tourneys, so BF returning is still possible, a lot of holes in the games are still open to and not fully explained(volcanion, hoopa, etc) we can still expect some more surprises guys just saying.

The BF returning is technically possible, just not in ORAS. Maybe in the next game however...
