I totally agree about the legendary pokemon. I remember when there were only like, five or six of them per generation. The 4th generation has 16 !!! This is way too much.

New type combos: Good idea
Customization: Terrific idea.
Have Pokemon follow you: Useless
Visit old regions: BRILLIANT!!!!!
More content: Terrific idea.
Removing only catch new Pokemon at first: That NEEDS to be done.
Making only a few Legendaries: Lame!
Don't make Fennekin Fire/Fighting: I actually cinda want them to, just because I'm curious how a dog Pokemon's evolution would look like as a fighting type.
Making more Ice types, Dragons, and Ghosts: Good idea.
New Evolutions for old Pokemon: YES!!!!!!! I want to see a Farfetch'd evolution.

My own idea: A legendary that evolves.

I'm not really a pokemon fan. At all. I've played some of Black. I thought it was pretty boring.

I can understand the appeal of monster collecting and training, but to my mind, the game needs more. Given the overall tonality of the series, a strong central narrative wouldn't really work, but one thing that would make the games a lot more accessible would be a deep side-questing mechanic. Just populate the world with tons of characters with their own little sub-stories we can interact with; some humorous, some touching. Just little things to flesh things out, and to give players like me some more context for playing the game.

That, and if you're going to make a game about collecting things, don't limit players who can't really make use of wi/fi or streetpass. That ain't cool.
