I would play this game. Pokemon died to me after Red/Blue so this might be what it takes.

to me pokemon is fine as it is gen 5 was pretty lame as far as the the pokemon designs go(the only gen i have problems with the designs of more the 10 pokemon)The turn based battles is what makes pokemon enjoyable and if i want something different the spin offs cover that.

Now if pokemon does change i guess i would mind a strategy game or maybe something like paper mario(turn based but timing improves damage)

You can alway play Pokemon Mystery Dungeon for a new experience . It a dungeon crawler

Oh absolutely. Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against the latter generations or spin-offs. They just didn't capture me the way the first game did when I booted it up that first time.

There is a wealth of Pokemon content available in a dozen different genres so if you're looking for something new, you're set. I guess the whole idea of Pokemon just doesn't appeal to me any longer, but a revitalization like the article outlines, would definitely interest me.

Pokemon is ever evolving as a game but the core will remain intact or it's just not Pokemon. Now what they really need to do is create an MMORPG that can be played both through the Wii U and/or the 3DS. That's the type of freshness I want from this series. Classic formula, in global, human interactive, decent graphics, open world style.

Fun article to read though...

Have you ever tried a Nuzlocke run.It's like turning on hard mode for a Pokemon game.There are 3 rules-
1:You may only catch the first Pokemon on a route.Killed it? Too bad move on.
2:Any Pokemon that faints must be released or boxed.They are seen as dead and can no longer be used.
3:Nickname all Pokemon.Crazy as it sounds this makes it more painful when Bob the Mudkip dies(You can't ever use him again,remember?).
It might seem foolish to put these limits on yourself but it gives the game some new life.Also,enjoyed the opinion piece.Nintendo should let NIS make the next Pokemon game-Level 9999 Bob the Mudkip? Sure, why not?
Edit:In rule 2 I forgot to add-If all your Pokemon have fainted its Game Over.Delete your save data.

No worries man. Though I'm not gonna lie, I did have a "Woah Woah Woah. Who you calling a monster?" moment.

And thanks for the recommendation. Sounds like a challenge.

That's some hardcore pokemon right there. Especially the game over part.
