Thread: Pokemon Feature Requests (Core Series)

  1. #1

    Post Pokemon Feature Requests (Core Series)

    Pokémon: Ultra Sun & Moon introduced ride Pokémon, an enhanced daycare system, Pokémon pictures, an enhanced battle UI, and the removal of HMs.

    Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu & Evee introduced the ability to rename Pokémon nicknames, an enhanced PC Box, and the removal of random encounters.

    These features have significantly improved the playing experience Pokémon video games offer. However, there are a few more features the core-series needs to implement before it can once again be as dominant as it was during generations 1-3.

    You can read my full Feature Request List as a PDF on Google Drive.

    What are your thoughts?

    Well we could always change nicknames you just had to go to the name rater for it. Though having your PC with you at all times I’d pretty handy. Overall I feel like USUM contributed bigger and better features though, especially given I doubt LGPE will have many lasting changes on the series.

    Yeah having the name rater makes noooooo sense and it's an old, dead thing that needs to go. You should definitely be able to change your pokemon's names on the go. The PC box, however, I'm not so sure should stay LG:PE style. I think it kind of makes no sense and while it makes for a great and easier playing experience, how would trainers magically be able to access all their stored pokemon while out in the wild? Granted, a PC doesn't make a lot of sense either and neither does capturing pokemon and having them go magically to the PC box. XD But anyway, I agree with Noble that LG:PE is a unique game which won't really have permanent changes.

    I know LGPE probably won't have a lot of changes, but I do hope at least some of them are kept, namely the ability to dress up your Pokemon (though I know this will most likely be restricted to just your starter if it stays), walking/following/ride Pokemon, Pokemon of variable sizes (seriously, this is so cool), and wild Pokemon in the overworld.

    KEEP THE TURN BASED BATTLES FORMAT AT ALL COSTS it works, don't mess with it and try to invent real-time battles in core series, would ruin it for me.

    Have never played the Let's Go, doesn't appeal to me anyway and I still can't afford a Switch even though I really want one, but if what i hear about nicknames means being able to change them on the fly is great and should stay in the core, as well there should be no restrictions on changing the names of Pokemon received in trades. There's no good reason for that restriction and it has annoyed me more than once in Pokemon, and no i don't buy "well the name reflects the bond with previous trainer" crap, that is in-game kayfabe reason that in practical terms just sounds like an excuse for not implementing it. If there is a real good technical difficulty reason for this restriction which I'm unaware of I'd like to know because as it stands the restriction on that is a pointless annoyance to me, I for one have a thing about having my Pokemon with their proper names in English and it bugs me when i have one i want to use but it has a silly custom name, or a foreign-language spelled one and I'm unable to change it.

    The overworld following lead Pokemon thing should be a feature if feasible again in core games, everyone seems to love it and I do too, would be a good move pleasing lots of people.

    Some kind of more efficient post-game way of leveling Pokemon to 100 would be really great. Grinding an elite 4 that never improve in levels becomes a tedious chore, and even those special "raise a Pokemon's level by 7" plaza things in USUM stop being applicable at 79. It's a huge chore to level to 100, more so than it should be. Something like exhibition rematches with gym leaders (or their equivalent) and elite 4 which scale up and down in overall level and difficulty would be a huge help (I am reminded of Disgaea for this actually, where they have "make enermies stronger" and "make enemies weaker" proposals for the senate thing. Something like that which you can adjust easily the state of what you face and unlock harder difficulties and stronger things as you go during post game would be fantastic). It should not be super quick and easy to get to 100 of course, but with the sheer amount of potential party members compared to other RPGs it should be easier than it is to max them.

    When it comes to character customization, in addition to gender and skin tone and hair choices, I think height should be adjustable as well. Within a reasonable range of the intended age of the protagonist of course, but I just think this would be nice, and would be a good compromise for the people who prefer short "chibi" looking characters and those who appreciate more lanky realistic ones.

    I don't know I liked the real time battle system they had in place in the Pokepark games but I can see why that would be annoying and even moreso difficult to program.
