Although there is a snowballs chance in hell of that happening since it is so easy and cheap to keep remaking the same games over and over, yet they sell millions.

If Pokemon was an MS franchise you can guarantee that there would have been a Pokemon MMO 10 years ago.

More interesting than name changes you'll forget all about:

"The GB Player is a key item obtainable in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. After the player has defeated all 16 gyms in the game, they can receive it from one of the Game Freak employees in Celadon Mansion. It allows the player to change the game's background music to redone 8-bit tracks from Gold and Silver."

Ooo this sounds like a great addition. I gotta remember this.
