Give us a sequel to the Pokémon Colosseum series for the Nintendo Switch

This petition had 285 supporters

Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon: Gale of Darkness are two of the most beloved, and original, Pokémon games in the decades spanning franchise. The concept of Shadow Pokémon, and the subsequent "Snagging and Purifying" mechanic gave way to a major boost of originality and fun for the series when it first debuted. With fans of the series often complaining about how the games feel a bit formulaic, and with Sun and Moon showing how well mixing said formula up can go, something as original as Pokémon Colosseum is just what fans need.

Aside from being original gameplay wise, Pokémon Colosseum was markedly more mature in tone, allowing for a fun story that veers away from the norm.
As good as the games are, the time in which they came out and the Pokémon available stick out like a sore thumb. With over 750 Pokémon now available, the capture and battle options in-game would be immense and near endless, revamping the challenge and fun. This includes Megastones and Z-crystals as well, along with new abilities and move sets that didn't exist in the past. Alola forms in Sun and Moon also paved the way for possible regional forms in future games, and Orre forms would be no exception to how novel and fun the concept can be. Mt. Battle, another beloved feature of the originals, would also be bolstered by the new additions and add to the large post-game.

Overall, Pokémon Colosseum and it's sequel are unlike anything else in the franchise. Original gameplay mechanics, a story that breaks the norm, an impeccable soundtrack and some truly unforgettable moments and characters are rife with possibility for a truly unforgettable remake. The sad reality, however, is that these games are almost entirely ignored and neglected by Game Freak as main additions to the series. Whether it's due to disputes over ownership, or perhaps even ignorance to how loved these games are, Game Freak and Genius Sonority are letting these two games slip away into oblivion. This would be a terrible thing to let happen, and a sequel would fill the hearts and minds of fans both old and new with happiness while paving the way for more original Pokémon games to come into light.
