Pokémon art director Ken Sugimori tells Official Nintendo Magazine that Game Freak won't run out of ideas.
From what I've seen of the pokemon from the latest games, he doesn't
They've remained more or less the same since the first ones/
Then...what would you do with them?
Trubbish ~ The Pokemon that is made of Garbage... They have TOTALLY run out of ideas... http://i981.photobucket.com...
Haha, yeah that's the one I was thinking of. They are scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of them. Don't get me wrong, some of the new ones are alright like elektross and Samurott. But the new generation doesn't hold a candle to the pokemon in the first three generations.
Being a Pokemon fan myself, even id agree with that comment... Id be a liar if i didnt.
"new" idea: Let's add ANOTHER 100 pokemon!! :/
Yh, Pokemon gray/grey for the 3DS is one of those ideas
Pokemon: (insert your favorite color or stone here) coming fall 2011.
They were very original with Black & White...implementing new gameplay mechanics, large backstories to the characters, and making the Pokemon look like creatures we could easily grow attached to. But...haters gonna hate.
The games themselves are still really good. But they need cooler pokemon. Seriously. Or at least give us more options for catching older pokemon early on.
Trubbish is not a Pokemon anyone can get attached to besides Oscar the grouch. Seriously what were they smoking? They couldn't even make it look decent, even the evolved form Garbodor looks like it ate too much and exploded (which is funny cause it can learn Explosion, the hell?!) Of course were gonna hate, their creating original things (yay) but at the same time their so fugly that of course it will be original. They should of hired Togashi from Hunter X Hunter to create new pokemon, his mind is full of original stuff.
Trubbish is ugly as crap, but someone could get attached because they like it's moveset or base stats. Heck, I know people who like Magikarp
The gameplay changes in B/W were fine, and the game played extremely well. The Pokemon designs were largely terrible, however: Oshawott? Really? Gurdurr? Even his name is bad. Ducklett? So lame. Scrafty? Oh my god, how could they ruin Scraggy so badly? Maractus? Really? And there's so many more, too... Eelektross looks like ass. As for the Trubbish hatred, I think Trubbish is alright. He's even kinda cute. Garbador, on the other hand...
How can you hate pokemon?
We already have 649 pokemon, change something else in the game for once. They are making so much money from reselling the same game over and over again just with different pokemon. Why not use that money to to make a new type of pokemon game, because it doesn't look like they are using it on their current games.
You are clearly completely unaware of the changes that go into the games each gen. Have you even played a Pokemon game since first gen? G/S In-battle weather Day/Night Dark + Steel Special split Breeding R/S Field weather Revamped breeding Revamped IVs Revamped EVs Double battles Pokemon contests Pokemon abilities D/P Online trading + battling Physical/Special split B/W Triple battles Rotation battles Dynamic camera Constantly moving battle sprites Seasons Over-all I think B/W has the least amount of drastic changes, but they definitely refined the formula in these games. There's only so much you can do without completely changing the gameplay of Pokemon (and thus effectively creating a brand new, and completely different game, impossible to compare with any of the previous installments) I'd like to see you think up some ideas that both completely change the game, and yet leave the core mechanics the same.
Completely unaware of the changes? I've played every generation of pokemon games except Black and White. I'm aware of the changes and across the 5 generations of pokemon games the changes are very small. Aside from new pokemon, the changes in the new games (dynamic camera, multi pokemon battles, pokemon contests etc...) aren't worth spending $50 on. Some ideas for new games: 1. MMO 2. 3D (no sprites) 3. Pokemon game on a console instead of a handheld 4. difficulty levels
Once again, making Pokemon into an MMO would completely change the entire game. It wouldn't even be comparable to RB, GSC, RS, DP, BW, etc. -- it wouldn't reach the same audience those games targeted. It would be an entirely different game. Pokemon games simply work better on handhelds. They're meant to be a social experience that can be taken anywhere. You can't really have the same experience sitting at home playing a console. As for 3D sprites, that's subjective. Compare BW sprites to Pokemon Battle Revolution models. Yeah, PBR Pokemon are 3D and all, but they don't get the same amount of definition and detail that the sprites do. I personally enjoy the sprites more and don't think that 3D would add anything. In fact, I even find all of the forced 3D inclusions in BW to be rather ugly. It's just the game's style, you know? Compare it to the backlash Cave Story received upon fans hearing about the 3D remake. Completely ruined style, etc. As for difficulty levels, it's hard to support that notion. Pokemon is just as difficult as you make it. If you want a difficult playthrough, limit yourself to the weaker Pokemon. And how would you manage difficulty levels? Change them at any time? That would encourage abuse if there's one particularly hard part you can't get past. Never change it? What happens when you beat the game and get really good at it? Or when you get far and realize how easy the game is, and want more of a challenge? All of your suggestions are inherently flawed. Back to the drawing board, eh?
Making it into an MMO wouldn't completely change the entire game. It could have ALL the elements of a normal pokemon game. I also feel that pokemon games work best on handhelds, I was just giving an example of a way they could change the games. As for 3D, think of how other games have done going from 2D to 3D: Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy etc... As long as they get enough effort put into them they have the potential to be really good. For difficulty levels, who cares if people abuse them. They are just ruining the game for themselves, but a lot of people would enjoy the challenge.
no more ice cream, candles, and chandelier Pokemon. Oh and gears which are rip-offs of magnemite and magneton
Pokemon isn't going anywhere, for a long time.
With Black and White as first I was like: 'Oh wow! No Zubat!' Then I saw 'Woobat'. Nintendo needs to stop that crap. They should only release newly created pokemon when they are sure that the majority of them are excellent. And spread it out! I would like more RPG's on console, and of better quality please...
While I love the idea of new critters to catch, I think Big N should focus more on the story from now on, and add maybe one or two in if needed to fit the story. Imagine how epic an RPG you could have with over 640 playable characters. I would kill baby penguins for a E10 or T rated game that is a Mewtwo RPG! They could make one of the most epic action RPGs ever with Mewtwo. The guy is stupid powerful, and now they can finally have some rivals for him in the game, like Darkrai, Arceus, Zekrom, and Reshiram. maybe even add in some QTE
if they have so many ideas maybe they should start applying some of them. the changes that we've seen in the franchise have been minimalistic, adding standard features that are found in pretty much every game as the hardware allows for them to add it
