Third Pokemon remake on the way?

Pokemon Emerald

Nintendo has trademarked the name “Delta Emerald” in Japan.

The mark was filed on May 2 and made public on May 29.

Earlier this month, Nintendo announced it was developing Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, remakes of the GameBoy Advance originals for 3DS.

Pokemon Emerald was, of course, the third game to follow Ruby and Sapphire, but a remake has not been announced.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.

      Interesting indeed.

    Damn they didn’t go for Chaos Emerald XD

    • Samuel King

      i think that name was trademarked by Sonic Team already

  • Zancrow

    This wouldn’t make any sense, since Heart Gold and Soul Silver basically incorporated Crystal. Releasing remakes of Ruby and Sapphire only to release another remake of Emerald would be really shitty.

  • nyobzoo

    Well not buying ruby/sapphire confirm

    • Jimjams

      Correction you will have to they will never come out with Delta Emerald they just trademark it so no one steals it

  • Budgiecat

    so we’re doing remake milk runs now?

      when have they not been doing that?

      • Budgiecat

          It’s what society demands.

      Kind of late there mate. The remake milking already started a while back (and 4th gen is next…)

    So I should wait for this version then? I figured they would just add the Emerald enhancements into the Ruby and Sapphire remakes, if Omega and Alpha don’t have Battle Frontier I will not be amused. Hopefully this is just them covering their trademark bases.

      They just trademarked it they had trademarked water blue but never released it they are just covering their ground

  • Mr Fwibbles

    Pokémon WaterBlue and Pokémon Grey were both trademarked, but never used. I think Nintendo is just covering their bases; I doubt Delta Emerald will be released.

    Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire for 3DS… Delta Emerald for Wii U?!
    … I can dream, right?

    • AdamBoy64

      Wow.. yeah. Pokemon on the big screen.
      That’d be nice. Very nice.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Nintendo trademarks all kinds of Pokemon games they have no intention of making for legal reasons.

    Go check out all the blue/yellow remake names they trademarked.

    sigh, keep on milking those franchise by making a “HD” remake Nintendo.
