The sixth generation of Pokemon is coming out! GameNTrain's Jeff Johnson takes a look at how to make the latest round of Pokemon games the best they can be!
For me it's mainly better Pokemon designs and a better multiplayer experience, maybe ranked double battle matches with strangers as allies and enemies or just a huge selection of multiplayer playlists would be nice.
They forgot #8.
I want a faster way to transfer Pokemon from B/W. That's all I want. As the article says, it's annoying as fuck transferring my 300+ Pokemon from generation to generation. I can't simply restart my collection, because it goes back to the days of Ruby/Saphire. I caught them all legit(excluding a few legendaries that I was lazy and missed the events for, like Genesect. I hope they do another one for him) and I expect an easy way to throw them all into my X/Y PC box.
This x2 ^^
Add some new types (I know they won't). There's been no new ones since Gold and Silver. I like the 8-bit noises. They're nostalgic and for me are part of the joy of discovering new Pokemans. I'd rather that than some PERSON gibbering, squealing and howling (etc.) at me everytime I get in a fight. I don't know, maybe it could work, just seems like it could get irritating. Another thing they won't add: Let me journey back to at least ONE of the previous regions after I've finished the game. I don't mind which one. Gold and Silver will always be my favourites partly because of that (lots of other reasons too). It was such a surprise and so exciting.
I agree with the point about making it easier to transfer your old Pokemon. But overall this is a bad list. None of these things will really move the series forward. And just to point out, the TV show is non-canonical in relation to the games as far as I've known, so it doesn't makes sense to want pokemon to say their names instead of their more animalistic cries from the games. I would, however, like to see Game Freak update the sound quality of these cries now though.
You know, with all of the changes that have happened, I'm surprised no one has mentioned the fact that Ice Pokemon have been nerfed for so long, for me, seeing a change where they aren't completely crap Pokemon would be the best change (personally). Ice has and always will be one of my favorite types, but due to their completely sucky nature of being weak to everything (and weaker to everything when they are dual typed) I am forced to bench them in most PvP battles. :( My poor Articuno.
One thing I just thought of that is also wishful thinking: I want the actual pokemon to show up when flying and/or surfing. It's so lame seeing a generic dark blue blob.
Completely agree with making transfers more easy. I would add the ability to customize your own character, change his name and of course more (new?) Pokemon to catch of course.
