I think a remake might be quite good. Keep ALL the same pokemon, don't add newer ones, but change the way they look a little so they are more up to date and better looking, keep the same soundtrack too but improve the quality. Basically a huge graphical and sound overhaul wil be required but I will definately play it.
That's not going to happen. The ruby and sapphire versions were about as complete as they could get: graphics in full color, 2D sprite transformations, updated sound quality and a complete world full of more secrets and locations than anything before it.
On the other hand, the original Game Boy games were almost entirely in black and white, even the gold and silver versions were mostly white with just a few other colors. The overworld sprites were somewhere around 8 pixels big, and the battle sprites were sharp and pixelly. The music was made with square, triangle and sawtooth signals (8-bit music, as it's commonly known). Besides, they were from a time when Pokémon was still popular even among non-gamers, unlike the ruby and sapphire versions. Such classics deserved a remake.
I'm not saying that the Game Boy Advance versions are not great games. In fact, what I'm saying is that they were too good quality to need a remake. The only significant difference between those versions and the ones today is 3D graphics.
