gamefreak has done the same pattern since gen 3.
new game, remake of a game from 2 generations ago, 3rd game coming either after the remake or right before.
they kinda broke it with b/w2 since its the first sequel so who knows. but again why fix what isnt broken are you telling me pokemon needs to be anything other than a fun monster raising rpg? if you want something different or "innovative" play monster rancher or dragon quest monsters or one of the side games

oh also id like to mention the remakes also have alot more to do with the fact that new people cant really complete their pokedexes without holding onto almost 10 year old games at this point.
you gotta remember pokemon is the 2nd best selling game series of all time not everyone still has their old gba version of emerald to send over all the pokemon
