{{main|Pokémon Gold and Silver remake speculation}}
[[Image:ChikoritaJohto2.PNG|thumb|right|From Johto]]
Before the announcement of {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, many had speculated a remake of Gold and Silver since the release of {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} in 2004. In the [[Generation IV]] games, location pointer data (for a [[capturedcaught Pokémon]]'s status screen) includes a reference to ''Johto'', much like it does for [[Kanto]] and [[Hoenn]] when a Pokémon is transferred forward from [[Generation III]]. This left programmers the opportunity to see Johto make an appearance in [[Pokémon Gold and Silver remake speculation|future games]] compatible with {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}.
Because of the "pattern" established by remaking both Red and Green and Gold and Silver two [[generation]]s after their original release, it is now being speculated that [[Generation III]] remakes may appear sometime in the future, possibly during [[Generation V]].
