"Hey guys, we're announcing that we are officially done with the beta of the games and are now ready to sell our finalized product. What to look forward to:
*For starters, we are disowning all previous Pokemon and replacing them with a brand new 202 that have been balanced to not be overpowering in the metagame and still provide a challenge for in the game itself. *Next up is types. We have reduced the number from 17 to 12. Rock and Ground have been combined into 1, and we'll let you see what other 4 have been taken out. *The level system has been completely overhauled, with the amount of experience gained being defined by one's strategy. We can't cover specifics, but we are sure the fans will be pleased with the results. *Finally, we realized we've overdone the 8 badges and have dropped that in favor for a better storyline. You'll play as an orphaned boy who must travel and acquire several special items guarded by eight bosses that will permit access to the final dungeon with the bosses' boss.
We here at GameFreak cannot wait to release this to public and reward our fans who have stuck with us for over 15 years."
....... The weird thing is I'm not sure that this would be such a bad move for them. I really liked the twist that pokemon XD had with its storyline and such, and the constant "oh wow we totally hadn't found this neighbouring country" line is getting old..... I can't really imagine how they'd balance the move types very well though.... some just have waaaay too many advantages or disadvantages.... and then the moves themselves are unevenly spread.
