To be fair, every game after gen 1 is a little gimmicky. Especially X and Y with Mega and now Sun and Moon with Z move. It isn't always a bad thing as long they take their time and work on the game with great care.Also this is the 20th Anniversary. So yeah, they should make something dealing with the Blue and Red.This Kanto "rumor" (wishful thinking that just started this week) is blurble, but Sun & Moon are also cash-grabs. Their purpose is to make money. There's nothing about any Pokémon anything that isn't a cash grab.
Side Note to everyone: Not everyone that hold the first gen as their favorite is a genwunner. When people believe only Blue and Red are the only true pokemon games.... Those are genwunner.
That out of the way, so far sun and moon look like it's going be the best game ever
